Fund11 Parameters

Fund11 Operating parameters are the actual operating parameters that make up the Catalyst voting protocol put in place to enable the community to decide which proposal will receive funding under the Project Catalyst program. Please note that given the dynamic nature of Project Catalyst, the following dates and parameters may change as the actual Fund progresses. If this is the case, community announcements will be distributed for clarifications.

450 ada is the minimum stake threshold to become a voter, based on the efficiency benchmarks of the voting protocol.
Specific value of the voting stake threshold will be defined by the protocol benchmarks.
Please note that due to the variety of 3rd party wallet providers integrating with Catalyst and associated voter registration fees, the recommended threshold to communicate is 500 ada required to participate in Catalyst voting as a buffer to account for unclaimed staking rewards.
A13

Tallying optimization
1 ADA = 1 voting token (i.e. the stake amount in lovelace is divided by 1,000,000)
How voting power is being proportionally reduced in order to optimize tallying performance
Compensation Parameters
B1
Proposal Funding logic (winner selection rule)
Fuzzy threshold voting; proposals are ranked by the Yes votes and funded one by one until the category budget is exhausted. Any leftover funds logic will exclude proposals submitted in ‘Product’ track in Cardano Use Cases and both Catalyst Systems Improvement tracks.
Proposals are ranked by Yes votes and funded in order. If the amount requested by a proposal is larger than the remaining challenge amount, it is skipped.
B2
Proposal acceptance threshold
1% of total voting power
At least 1% of the total registered stake must vote YES on a proposal.
E.g., there is 1 billion ADA as a total registered stake.
To be accepted (become an ‘approved proposal’ as well as be eligible for funding), a proposal must be voted by at least 0.01 * (1 * 10^9) = 10 millions of ADA.
B3
Voting options
Yes/Abstain
There is only Yes and Abstain, the ‘No’ option has been removed in Fund11.
B4
Vrtotal
2.50% ₳1,250,000
Voter Compensations
Compensations is for active participation in the Voting (cast at least 1 vote)
In order to benefit from voter rewards, voters must select either ‘Yes’ or ‘Abstain’ in the voter interface. By choosing to not select the ‘Abstain’ option, this will not cast an ‘Abstain’ vote and therefore not generate a unit of voter compensation.

0.80% ₳400,000 for Project > ₳150,000
₳350 per Statement of Milestones (regardless of project budget)
This part from B8 was adjusted because final values are dependent on the volume of funded projects in Fund11, where the exact number of milestones isn’t known in advance. Having ~50% more funded projects compared to Fund10, but the same budget for compensations, decreases reward per review for both SoM and PoA (small and big projects).
New Breakdown:
₳160 for PoA Project < ₳150,000
₳180 for PoA Project > ₳150,000
