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.

Rewards Parameters
B1
Proposal Funding logic (winner selection rule)
Fuzzy threshold voting, proposals are ranked by the difference of Yes and No votes and funded one by one until challenge budget is exhausted
Proposals are ranked by sum of 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
15% more ‘Yes’ than ‘No’
At least 1% of the total registered stake must vote 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.
'Yes'-'No' difference of the stake voted on proposal must be at least 15%
Formula: (YES-NO)/(YES+NO) > 0.15
(e.g., 90% 'Yes' and 10% 'No', or 57.6% 'Yes' and 42.4% 'No', or 100% 'Yes' and 0% 'No', etc.; it is assumed that abstained stake does not vote on the proposal in the current architecture).
B3
Voting options and Funding logic in Catalyst Operations category
Yes/Abstain
No ‘No’ option

The winner is determined by the highest ‘Yes’ vote only.
