Catalyst-Coordinator Hub Proposal


F7: Scale-UP Cardano's Community Hubs

Problem statement

Proposers funded by Catalyst lack a collaborative layer to answer FAQ questions, leave feedback and raise issues.


Implement a collaborative layer, a community hub, to welcome funded proposers to Catalyst and provide support.


A key Prioritized Problem handed over to Catalyst Circle V2 was "Cohort: Almost non existing "collaborative layer" to welcome newcomers" ( ).

To begin to address this problem, to gather feedback and to track issues Stephen Whitenstall set up a Catalyst Coordinator GitBook for problem-sensing the Funded Cohort process in November 2021.

This was announced at Fund 7 Town Hall #3 on 1st December 2021.

Catalyst Coordinator GitBook

The Catalyst Coordinator GitBook ( provides :

Catalyst Coordinator Feedback Repository

A GitHub Repository documents and tracks issues raised by the funded proposer community -


The total budget for this proposal was a modest $4,350. This covered maintenance of the GitBook and backend GitHub repository for 3 months at $ 3,150 and engagement on social media (Telegram/Discord) over 3 months for $ 1,200. The actual work period lasted between November 2021 and February 2022.


Regular updates over 3 months (21 hours per month) to add content

$50 per hour for 63 hours (21 x 3) = $ 3,150


Promotion, engagement and communication on social media (Twitter, Telegram, Youtube, Discord, Reddit).

2 hours per week for 3 months = 24 hours = $50 hour for 24 hours = $ 1,200

Total: $4,350
