Catalyst Fund voting reward amount examples


How much voting rewards will I receive at the end of the current Catalyst Fund?

The final reward formula for a participant’s Catalyst Fund reward provided in ADA is the following:

Rj=stakejstaketotal(ADA worth of $1,040,000),

where

Rj– reward for the participant j, paid in ADA;

stakej– stake of the participant j in the current Catalyst Fund; 

staketotal– total stake that participates in the current Catalyst Fund.

Participants’ rewards depend on two factors: own stake and total stake participation.

Some examples for a fixed participant’s stake of 500 ADA and exchange rate $1.25/ADA (actual on 2021-December-14):
