This focus on interoperability and user engagement seeks to simplify interactions across the blockchain, attracting developers and businesses to the ecosystem and promoting its expansion.

GSR's subsidiary securing the Digital Payment Token Service license underscores the regulatory progress in the digital asset market. This partnership not only strengthens Cardano's position as a pioneer in blockchain technology but also highlights its commitment to sustainable development and security through its proof-of-stake protocol.

Over 1200 Cardano projects presented in Fund 12!

Project Catalyst Fund12

Project Catalyst serves as a hub for decentralized innovation within the Cardano ecosystem. As a decentralized funding platform, it embodies principles of community governance and technical advancement. Through collaborative efforts, individuals converge on this digital platform to propose, evaluate, and execute projects aimed at addressing real-world challenges while democratizing access to funding and decision-making processes.

Looking forward to Fund12, with a substantial fund size of ₳50 million, Project Catalyst invited innovators to present their ideas and contribute to Cardano's evolution.

We extend our gratitude to those who support and vote for our proposals, driving forward the vision of a decentralized and inclusive Cardano ecosystem!


Introducing Sundae v3: A New Era of Cardano Innovation

Sundae Swap V3

Sundae v3 marks a significant leap forward in Cardano's DeFi capabilities. With contracts capable of processing over 35 orders per batch, Sundae v3 promises a 10x increase in transaction speed, accompanied by reduced fees for users. This enhancement in scalability is complemented by Sundae v3's focus on extensibility, enabling seamless contract upgrades without protocol relaunches, ensuring a future-proof protocol offering. Moreover, Sundae v3 prioritizes interoperability, facilitating smooth interaction with other protocols, thereby enhancing the fluidity of transactions across DeFi ecosystems.

Sundae v3 Sets New Standards with Dynamic Feed and DAO Governance

Sundae v3 enhances usability through dynamic fee models and scooper fee rebates, optimizing transaction costs for users. Beyond performance enhancements, Sundae v3 underscores a commitment to governance and sustainability, paving the way for complete decentralization through multiple revenue streams and DAO-driven administration capabilities.
