What is Celo? ($CELO)
CELO is the platform-native asset that supports the growth and development of the Celo blockchain and ecosystem. CELO holders can earn rewards, stake with validators, and vote on proposals that shape the future of Celo.
Celo's mission is to build a financial system that creates the conditions for prosperity—for everyone.
Celo was designed to enable a new universe of financial solutions accessible for mobile users, creating a global financial ecosystem where an end-user can onboard into the Celo ecosystem with just a mobile number.
In addition, Celo makes sending payments as easy as sending a text, to anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world. Celo maps phone numbers to wallet addresses using a novel decentralised address-based identity layer. Mobile participants can earn rewards for securing and maintaining the system.
By connecting to Celo with OnFinality’s API endpoints, builders will be able to:
- Access the Celo blockchain quickly in minutes without having to set up or manage infrastructure
