IOHK's Project Catalyst 10th Town Hall Meeting Coming Up!

Dear Community Members,

IOHK is gearing up for the 10th Project Catalyst town hall and we hope that you’ll join us. Bringing on-chain governance to Cardano is all about putting our community in control and our weekly town hall is where we bring you crucial information from the team. With that being said, this town hall is a special edition:Our top priority is delivering Fund2. So, we’re allowing Dor and the team to focus on this. That is why this week’s town hall will be just a brief ten minute update rather than the usual format.

In our last meeting we looked forward to our timeline and the run-up to voting on Fund2 proposals. We also opened the floor to Samuel Leathers for a demonstration of our CLI tool. SPOs will be able to vote with a CLI procedure, but the exact way this will occur is not currently known. To find out more from last week, check out our weekly summary.

We will return to giving a full breakdown of weekly activities and opening up the floor to participants in the future. We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday the 18th of November at 6:00 PM UTC. To take part, just join our Crowdcast.

Meanwhile, feel free to browse through Ideascale to get up to speed on what is happening with Project Catalyst. So, we hope to see you on Wednesday. Be there to help us build the future of Cardano.

Thank you,
The Project Catalyst team
With so many talented community members delivering exciting projects, we want to take some time to recognize and highlight them. Each month, we'll be sharing a new project as part of our "Developer Spotlight" - Our first feature is on Cardanoscan.io and PoolTool.io. Learn more about these projects and the Developer Spotlight here: https://bit.ly/32VVDNO
High importance, please read - It has come to the Cardano Foundation’s attention that our website has been convincingly duplicated in order to promote a fake stakepool, named ‘HyperPool’. We urge our community members not to interact with this stakepool or try and send any ada to it, as you will likely lose all of your funds. The fake website attempts to direct users to a duplicate version of the AdaLite wallet, which prompts you to connect a hardware wallet, restore an ada wallet from a mnemonic, or provide a Keystore file.

Pay close attention to the URLs of sites you visit. The official URL of the Cardano Foundation’s site is https://cardanofoundation.org/ and our SSL certificate provider is Cloudflare. The official URL of AdaLite wallet is https://adalite.io/.

Do NOT send any funds or ada to a stakepool claiming affiliation with the Cardano Foundation. The Cardano Foundation will never run or maintain a stakepool, nor will its representatives ever ask you to send funds to an address.

Please remain vigilant while our Community Management team works to deplatform these sites.

The Cardano Foundation.

⚠️Basic scam/fraud awareness⚠️

🛑If you get approached by someone over DM and look official, they are NOT. They are impersonating someone and you may be getting scammed.

🛑There are no deadlines with sending/redeeming/claiming your ada. Your ada is always safe as long as you know the seed words to your wallet.

🛑Never put your seed words into a website, no matter how official it looks.

🛑Giveaways are often a SCAM!

🛑We will never ask you to send ada to us or to a wallet you do not own. Don't do it.

🛑Never tell anyone your seed words (mnemonics).

🛑 There is no online Live Chat Support website.

Always STOP and double check before making any decisions and/or ask an official on the public platform.

⛔️Transactions are NOT reversible⛔️
