Project Catalyst is the world’s largest decentralized innovation engine for solving real-world challenges.

How it works

At the start of each funding round, the Cardano community proposes ideas that solve challenges within the blockchain ecosystem and the wider world. The community then evaluates and votes on which technical, business, creative, and community projects will receive funding.
