All ADA enthusiasts can book their place on Project Catalyst's voting committee. Then, they will vote with their ADA stakes to support their favorite Cardano-based projects.

As per Cardano's community activist, voting in Project Catalyst represents a unique opportunity for ADA holders with various levels of blockchain expertise:

I think voting is something powerful. When you get a chance to interact with a third largest market cap cryptocurrency and you have a say based off of the ADA that you have in your wallet (...) is just super exciting and interactive.

To participate in the referendum, Cardano (ADA) supporters should hold at least 500 ADA, or about $1,120 USD in equivalent by press time.

First Fund in smart contracts era

Cardano's Project Catalyst is an unmatched decentralized incubator initiative for early-stage decentralized applications interested in leveraging Cardano's smart contacts.

Launched from Stealth in Q3, 2020, it has already onboarded and funded hundreds of dApps. Its sixth iteration is a special one: for the first time, winners can interact with mainnet smart contracts on Cardano (ADA).

Cardano (ADA) blockchain activated smart contracts functionality on Sept. 12, 2021. After an eye-watering rally, its native coin, ADA, became the third-largest coin by net market capitalization.
