Celo is an open platform that makes financial tools accessible to anyone with a mobile phone.  Celo embraces a full-stack approach, reimagining technology at each layer. Celo’s innovations are designed along with communities around the world.

These are the three main reasons we chose Celo:

1

Celo is a truly decentralized and open-source platform. Because Celo is forked from Ethereum its platform is very accessible for – and familiar to – the global development community. Read more about the protocol design.

2

We believe strongly in Celo’s mission to build an open financial system that creates the conditions of prosperity for all.

3

C Labs, the company building for the Celo platform, has an incredibly talented team that is engaged with Celo Camp and values the open-source developer community.

Types of projects we would like to see

1

Build on Celo: Including dApps, APIs, smart contracts, staking services, and user onboarding.

2

Contribute to Celo: Including research, scalability, privacy, governance, and interoperability.

3

Educate Community: Broader access to resources for onboarding and education.
