Intersect Development Update #21 - July 5th

Welcome to the twenty-first edition of the Intersect Development Report! This edition highlights Intersect’s governance, our community, and working groups, as well as updates on our Constitution and much more. Let’s jump straight into the update!

Intersect Development Update #21 - July 5th



Throughout Q3, we will be making significant updates and upgrading to our Discord server - enhancing our member experience. Over the coming weeks, you can expect:


  • Increased transparency: Our new committee categories will give you direct access to committee updates! Committee chairs are encouraged to share news and information about them in a public announcement channel;
  • Facilitation of communication: Making sure your opinions are heard is one of our top priorities. Community members will be able to chat directly with committee chairs and participate in discussions related to their latest updates through our new committee public chat channels;
  • Self-serving integrations: As part of our decentralization and education initiatives, we are exploring automation and AI integrations within the server to help current and future members self-serve and contribute faster and more effectively to the Cardano ecosystem. The integration will undergo major testing and customization, ensuring it can provide the community with what it needs.


As for our temporary adjustments, we’ve moved all new channels and categories below the previously existing ones to keep active channels uninterrupted. We’ll keep you updated both here and in Discord directly. Stay tuned!

Community Hubs

Our Community Hubs continue to grow and are fundamental in encouraging collaboration in Cardano worldwide.

Last week, our CoinCeylon (Sri Lanka) Hub held its first Town Hall, with 14 attendees. You can watch the recording here. Our LATAM Hub held its second Town Hall with 69 attendees.

This week, we have the following events taking place:

Japan Community Hub


  • X space: Held on 1st July, with 298 participants tuning in. The recording is here.
  • Eastern Hemisphere Town Hall: Held on 3rd July, 25 participants tuned in.
  • Kyoto Cardano Regional Revitalization IVS Side Event: This event will be held on July 5th in Kyoto, and 300+ attendees are expected. The Japan Hub is already showcasing Intersect here!


WADA Community Hub


  • First Town Hall: Held on 4th July, with 25 attendees.


Constitution update

We are excited to announce the final 50 workshops where the community can help draft the final Constitution. With 98 applications to review, it was a highly competitive process, and with funding limited to 50 workshops, thank you to everyone who applied to host a workshop.

The complete list of workshops is here. We’ll be supporting the 50 hosts with onboarding and training, and next week, we’ll share a Luma calendar and ways to connect with hosts directly.

DRep Pioneer workshops

Next weekend, we have 6 workshops in person and virtually. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the role of DReps and how you can get involved. These sessions are a great chance to gain valuable insights and connect with community members.

Community tooling

The Constitutional Committee Portal is currently in beta and hosts the interim Constitution.

The grant to update the Cardano-Transaction-Library to support new Conway primitives and implement a CIP-95-enabled wallet connector is underway. The successful implementation of this proposal will benefit Cardano transaction library users, who will unlock the ability to interact with CIP-1694 primitives via CIP-95 wallet interfaces. Milestone 1 (Sterilization support) and milestone 2 (Core types implementation) achievements can be found in our grant project space.

Governance tooling

Last week's release of GovTool includes enhanced capabilities to empower our community in governance processes. Users can now propose governance actions, engage in discussions to refine proposals, and seamlessly submit them for voting.

Teams are now working on the improvements and fixing the reported issues.

SanchoNet Govtool participation dashboard is available on participation.sanchogov.tools. From this dashboard, everyone can keep track of Govtool usage and participate in its testing.

And here are these week's updated SanchoNet stats:

Notice to SPOs - node updates

Following the recent attempted spam attack, a reminder to all SPOs that two node versions have been made available: the 8.9.4 hotfix and version 8.12.1, which you can review on our repositories here.

To join the conversation, head over to the SPO Discord server

Intersect internal governance

The first Intersect Steering Committee meeting was held last week with committee chairs, community hub managers and Intersect staff. This new steering committee is intended to underpin the wider governance of Intersect as a member-based organization, and to better cross-pollinate ideas and improvements.

One of the first outputs from this meeting was the first Committee report, released on June 28th. You can read this report here.

This week's reminders

In this week's reminders section, we’d like to highlight:


  • If you haven't already, please complete this brief member survey to have your say in how Intersect develops. Your responses will help us better serve you and enhance your overall experience with our organization.
  • We’re hiring! - we’re looking for a highly motivated and experienced Membership sales and account executive to join our team on a nine-month full-time contract. During this important period of growth and development for Intersect, this role will be pivotal in growing our membership base, mainly through the introduction and membership sign-up of projects and organizations working within the Cardano ecosystem and beyond.
