Quality Assurance DAO (QADAO) began in Cardano's Project Catalyst in April 2021 with an Open Source Feedback survey.

We subsequently submitted a proposal Quality-Assurance-DAO in the Fund 5: Developer ecosystem Challenge that sought to encourage open-source collaboration & innovation and to do a QA Assessment of Catalyst Proposal Process itself.

This proposal was successful in receiving votes and was funded in August 2021.

QADAO went on to document the pathway of a funded cohort & began to assess Project Catalyst’s reporting requirements.
