Chainlink Data Feeds Are Now Live on Celo
In April, we announced that Celo joined the Chainlink SCALE program following community approval. Today, we’re pleased to share that Chainlink Data Feeds are live on Celo mainnet! Now, Celo developers have access to reliable and high-quality data feeds needed to build advanced DeFi applications. Additionally, developers will be able to access these industry-leading data feeds at a lower cost due to Celo’s participation in Chainlink SCALE. Not only do Chainlink Data Feeds empower Celo developers to build advanced DeFi applications that are accessible around the globe through mobile phones — a host of Chainlink Data Feeds and their continuous rollout to meet ecosystem demand means that a new wave of innovative dApps for Celo users will be enabled. “We’re thrilled to support the growth of the Celo ecosystem with the native integration of Chainlink’s secure and reliable data feeds, which will power a new era of DeFi,” remarked Johann Eid, VP of Go-To-Market at Chainlink Labs. “The superior uptime, accuracy, and security guarantees provided by Chainlink decentralized oracle networks will enable Celo developers to build more advanced applications that help advance the Web3 space.” “Chainlink is the industry-standard oracle solution for blockchains and dApps,” says Xochitl Cazador, Head of Ecosystem Growth at the Celo Foundation. “Chainlink Data Feeds will empower Celo developers, providing critical acc...
Welcoming Animoca Brands to the Celo Ecosystem

It’s Finally Here: Celo Joins Chainlink SCALE
Following approval from the Celo community, it’s exciting to announce that Celo is joining the Chainlink SCALE (Sustainable Chainlink Access for Layer 1 and 2 Enablement) program to help accelerate the adoption of Celo’s regenerative ecosystem. This initiative will help accelerate ecosystem growth and the long-term adoption of Celo by equipping Celo developers with low-cost, reliable Chainlink oracle data and services. — How Chainlink SCALE Helps Accelerate Ecosystem Adoption - Chainlink SCALE is an initiative centered around sustainably accelerating the growth of layer-1 and layer-2 blockchains. Its focus is providing L1s/L2s with increased access to high-quality, low-cost, and in-demand oracle services by enabling them to cover the operating costs (e.g., transaction gas fees) of Chainlink oracle networks for a period of time. As L1/L2s in the Chainlink SCALE program mature, the operating costs of oracle networks can increasingly transition toward being fully covered by dApp user fees. The Celo’s ecosystem’s participation in SCALE will maximize project success by increasing its developers’ access to industry-leading oracle data and oracle services and further minimizing the gas fees that Chainlink nodes incur when submitting oracle reports on Celo. This deployment of resources will help the Celo ecosystem realize its vision of becoming one of the most high-utility mobile-first layer-1 networks while giving it...
cLabs uplevels Celo’s custody offering through native Safe integration
Safe is coming to Celo! 2022 has reminded the industry of the incredible importance of a robust, secure, and user-friendly custody and asset management solution. Between the collapse of FTX as well as the recent liquidity crisis surrounding various large-scale banks, the mantra “not your keys, not your crypto” has garnered significant traction within the crypto industry and increased demand for a decentralized custody offering. cLabs, a leading technical contributor to the Celo blockchain, has been committed to proactively addressing this need since its mainnet launch in 2020. Launching Celo Safe, a forked version of Safe, provided an immediate solution for Celo community members to securely engage on the Celo blockchain. While a successful beta product, Celo is now in the fortunate position where cLabs is ready to take the next step in natively integrating with the Safe offering. “Safe’s feature full multi-user self-custody has been one of the leading feature requests in the Celo ecosystem for asset management. We’re excited to welcome Safe to Celo in fulfilling our community’s needs,” says Marek Olszewski, Celo Co-Founder and cLabs CTO.We are excited to bring the value of account abstraction and smart accounts to Celo and the ReFi ecosystem it fosters. We are very much aligned with sustainable goals that Celo expresses and believe that self-custodial and multi-player ownership will boost coordination and secu...
It’s Ultragreen Week!
It’s Ultragreen Week! Celebrating Celo’s Three-Year Anniversary on Earth Day - Did you know that Earth Day 2023 marks Celo’s 3-year mainnet anniversary? To celebrate, we’re excited to kick-off the official launch of Ultragreen Week! Created in collaboration with the broader Celo community, Ultragreen Week is a coordinated movement featuring five days of collective action on Celo inspired by Ultragreen Money and the various use cases that leverage web3 innovation to unlock climate action at scale. So why web3? As a powerful mass-coordination tool, blockchain can be used to accelerate planet-positive funding and solutions for the world’s mass-coordination problems, like the climate crisis, in order for us to reach the UN SDG’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.

From Monday through Saturday, we’ll highlight a different call to action across Celo’s ecosystem, as web3’s “Home of ReFi” (or regenerative finance). It is our hope that you’ll join us in sharing these projects, diving deeper into our ReFi ecosystem, take meaningful action, and encourage your network to do the same. To get started, claim our custom-designed Ultragreen Week POAP via MintToast, digital credentials meant to show off your regen cred! For every POAP minted, the Celo...
More Celo (#CELO) News
|Celo Votes To Increase Minimum Gas Threshold
Celo, a mobile-focused smart contracting platform compatible with Ethereum’s virtual machine, is voting on a proposal to increase the network’s minimum gas threshold.
Voting for Celo Governance Proposal 0066 started today, Wednesday, January 18, and ends on Friday, January 27. As of the time of writing, the turnout stands at 2.6% of the total supply, with 6,840,826 CELO locked as votes.
Out of this, 6,840,116 CELO supports the proposal, 620 CELO is against the idea, and 90 CELO are voting to abstain. CELO is the native currency of the Celo proof-of-stake smart contracting platform based on the PBFT consensus mechanism.
The Celo Governance Proposal 0066
The proposal seeks to increase the minimum gas threshold to $0.001 for simple ERC-20 transactions. Unlike Ethereum, where gas fees must be paid in ETH only, in Celo, users can pay using ERC-20 currencies, not just CELO. Gas fees are paid to prevent Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks.
Like Ethereum, the gas fee structure in Celo adopts the proposals under EIP-1559. As EIP-1559 stipulates, there must be a gas price minimum that applies to all Celo transactions. This minimum fee applies regardless of the validator processing the transaction. It also fluctuates depending on demand. Celo has clarified that should the proposal pass, only the base fee will be impacted.
Under the Celo Governance Proposal 0066, the validator rewards from the gas fee will not be affected. Celo added that though the base f...
|Celo Sees 20% Gains In Last Week As The Broader Crypto Market Retreats
CELO's price is currently at $0.6101, with a trading volume of $44,775,558. It is currently ranked number 97 on CoinMarketCap. The trading volume has decreased by over 73% in the last 24 hours.
CELO shocked many market observers with a 33.51% price jump on Sunday and had a trading volume of $227,794,699.69. Although the token is still way off its all-time high of $10.68, it has shown signs of recovery.
2022 has been an eventful year in crypto circles, from XRP's lawsuit with the SEC to the collapse of Celius and FTX. Pessimism has also driven the prices of crypto assets down as the fear factor increases.
CELO coin has defied the odds to go on a rally that has holders hopeful of potential gains. From its historical price movement, it remains to see how far this momentum can hold.
What Is Behind CELO’s Recent Price Upsurge? CELO's innovative cryptocurrency system gives the project an edge in the prevailing bearish cryptocurrency market. CELO targets increasing crypto use among smartphone users.
With the number of smartphone users rising daily, it is easy to understand why it is gaining in the market.
The proof of stake mechanism adopted by the project developers also makes it more energy efficient and future-inclined. The current value of the CELO network is directly proportional to efforts from network builders, the fanbase, and investors.
Also, Bitcoin has recently seen a slow and steady increase in its valuation. Judging from history and Bitcoin's dominance, it ...
|Funds Are Safe But Celo Network Stalled Again After Briefly Resuming
According to the tweet by the blockchain payments infrastructure, the validators of the network were working to identify and resolve the issue and asserted that no funds had been compromised.
Celo block production did resume briefly before stalling again. The downtime does not appear to have affected the blockchain's native token, CELO, which is slightly in the green on a daily scale.
In its latest update, Celo Network tweeted,
'Validators are working to restart the network. Block production resumed briefly, however, stalled again. Validators, please join the validators-operators channel on Discord and follow the posted instructions to update your node. As previously stated, all funds are secure.'
While the team behind Celo hasn't mentioned that the deployment on Uniswap v3 could be the factor, the sudden downtime occurred shortly after the update took place.
The Celo Foundation recently announced the launch of Uniswap V3 and green-asset pools after the community approved the deployment of v3 onto the blockchain.
The main aim is to advance a regenerative financial (ReFi) system and currencies supported by natural capital on Celo.
An initiative called 'DeFi for the People' by the Celo Foundation had pledged a sum of $10 million to support ReFi liquidity. The idea is to develop DeFi products and services promoting regenerative rather than extractive economy and spur adoption of the pools on Uniswap V3.
In April, Celo launched an incentive program worth $20 million for the ne...
|Huobi Incubator Partners Celo to Promote Stablecoins for the Masses
[PRESS RELEASE - Please Read Disclaimer]
Huobi Incubator, the project incubation arm of Huobi Global, today announced that it will co-host Celo x Huobi: Stablecoin in Web3 & Sustainability hackathon with Celo, a mobile-first blockchain that makes decentralized financial (DeFi) tools and services accessible to anyone with a mobile phone. The partnership aims to spur stablecoin development in the Web3 field in order to achieve long-term sustainability. This hackathon, to be held from April 27 to June 24, is offering prizes worth a total of US$1 million including a prize pool worth US$500,000 and US$500,000 in venture funding for all winners.
As a mobile-first blockchain that makes decentralized financial (Defi) tools and services accessible to anyone with a mobile phone, Celo aims to break down barriers in the financial space by bringing the powerful benefits of Defi to the users of the 6 billion smartphones in circulation today. Celo hosted a 'make crypto mobile' hackathon last year, with more than 2,300 developers participating. Three payment dApps, 21yieldhe, EFFisend, and Xeggo showcased innovation and creativity to emerge as winners in last year’s hackathon.
The upcoming hackathon aims to link stablecoins with dApps, DAOs, and DeFi in Web3. Therefore, three challenge categories have been set as follows: the first challenge focuses on building stablecoin related financial solutions on Celo, with a focus on expanding the use of Celo Dollar (cUSD) to emerging markets wi...
|Biggest Movers: CELO, LUNA Higher, ZIL Moves Over 15% Lower
Despite the global cryptocurrency market cap mainly consolidating on Tuesday, LUNA and CELO were some of the session's biggest gainers. ZIL, on the other hand, continued to fall following recent highs, trading over 15% lower during today's session.
ZIL fell for a fourth straight session on Tuesday, as prices continue to slip away from last week's high of $0.2313.
While ZIL fell by almost 13% today, CELO gained by almost the same percentage, climbing to its highest level in almost four months in the process.
Following a low of $3.68 to start the week, CELO/USD rallied to a high of $5.19 in Tuesday's market session.
This is the highest level CELO has traded at since January 13, as prices continued to fall from a high of over $6.00.
Looking at the chart, today's gains somewhat eased as prices neared the resistance level of $5.20, a level which has historically birthed a high level of uncertainty.
CELO is also currently overbought according to the 14-day RSI, which is currently tracking at 76.31.
This could give bears further impetus to enter the market at this level, in a similar fashion to the selloff that occurred in mid-January.
LUNA rallied to a new record high during today's session, as it moved past ADA to cement itself as the world's seventh-largest cryptocurrency.
Following a low of $109.94 on Monday, LUNA/USD surged to an intraday high of $119.18 on Tuesday, which is its highest price on record.
Tuesday's record high comes less than a week remov...
|CELO Skyrockets to 3-Month High After Launching $20 Million Incentive Pr...
CELO's price went up by more than 60% since the start of April to its highest point in over three months. This comes amid the project's latest initiative that plans to spend $20 million to incentivize the development of Celo on- and off-ramps.
Celo's Connect the World Project
The announcement from earlier this week informed that the Celo Foundation had allocated $20 million for the new Connect the World campaign. The main focus is to invest in teams and projects wanting to develop 'high-quality Celo on- and off-ramps around the globe.'
Additionally, Celo also introduced an open-source API specification for payment providers dubbed FiatConnect. It aims to simplify the integration process.
The campaign started with a $50,000 offer to the first payment provider in each country to incorporate FiatConnect and 'demonstrate an on- and off-ramp that meets the quality bar.'
'The Foundation will also subsidize on-ramp fees of up to $100,000 for all providers, making it more affordable for users to access Celo assets.'
The new initiative will work together with the three stablecoins launched by the Celo Foundation - cUSD, pegged to the US dollar, cEuro - which tracks the value of the euro, and cREAL - which tracks the value of the Brazilian real.
CELO Taps 3-Month High
The price of the project's native cryptocurrency began the year on a high note by surging to and beyond $6. However, the market-wide correction drove Celo south, which culminated in a low of $2 registered in late February...
