ADA MakerSpace, a Winner of Cardano Project Catalyst Fund3
Project Catalyst is a Decentralized Innovation Fund in the Cardano ecosystem, where everyone can submit a proposal idea, and in several stages ADA holders vote which ideas will be funded. Recently Fund3 ended and 20 projects received funding + 2 community choice challenges ([you can see the full results here](https://drive.google.com/file/d/1X6BnuFBvNO8yF2DeUgBqA3yyYSvqeKvg/view))
[ADA MakerSpace - DEV lessons proposal](https://cardano.ideascale.com/a/dtd/ADA-MakerSpace-DEV-lessons/334235-48088) was created by Boone Bergsma. It’s actually one of the oldest proposals as it took part in Fund1 and was the winner, but Fund1 was a test fund with no real funding distributed. And in Fund2 the proposal was close but didn’t win. This time in fund3 ADA holders voted “Yes” way more than “No” and ADA MakerSpace will be receiving Catalyst funding.
I met Boone in the summer of 2020 when we took part in Fund1 together. One of the missions of Project Catalyst is that it’s connecting people. Boone and I joined efforts in the beginning of 2021 and have started a venture studio called Blockchain Laboratories, and are collaborating on ADA MakerSpace. So I am a winner in Catalyst this time too!
