UltraGreen Money

Ultragreen Money — Celo’s Expanded Sustainability Commitment - Blockchains cannot exist at scale without a commitment to sustainability. This belief contributed foundationally to not only the Celo mission to “reimagine money for the greater good” but also in its architecture as a leading sustainability-focused blockchain. The Celo blockchain launched on Earth Day 2020, with the focus on setting an example of what a green blockchain could look like, introducing the first major Proof-of-Stake, carbon-negative Layer 1. Celo went further than just eliminating Proof-of-Work. The Celo protocol was the first to automatically offset its carbon footprint since its first block. It does this by sending CELO every day to an on-chain Carbon Offset Fund. Over the past three years, sustainability has become a rapidly growing focus across the industry. On September 15th, 2022, the Ethereum community took a major step forward in completing the long-awaited “Merge” from Proof-of-Work (PoW), joining Celo and other next-generation blockchains in using Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus. This event led to widespread coverage on the change’s impact in drastically reducing Ethereum’s carbon footprint but left the outstanding question of – “What’s the next chapter for sustainability?” Today, cLabs, a leading contributor to the Celo technology stack, is excited to introduce our answer to that question — “Ultragreen Mo...

How Interoperability Drives Real-World Solutions for a Regenerative Economy

By Amit Chu,* Celo Foundation Partner, Finance Partner What Is Interoperability? Interoperability has emerged as a new standard of cross-chain communication between blockchain ecosystems, unlocking new use cases and valuable block space for developers and end users. As interoperability features in the new Celo 2.0 technical roadmap, let’s take a look at the historical development of blockchains, and how interoperability became a focus area for the Web3 community. Since Ethereum launched in 2015, we’ve witnessed unprecedented innovation in Web3. Specifically, we’ve seen the emergence of layer-1 and layer-2 protocols aiming to improve developer and user experience by reducing the limitations around scalability, network congestion, and exorbitant transaction costs. While these newer blockchain ecosystems have gained millions of users and billions in total value locked (TVL), the rapid pace of open source innovation has led to these protocols using different languages and rules. These differences make it difficult for certain blockchains, and the applications living on them, to seamlessly interact with others. Furthermore, builders are faced with the dilemma of choosing a single tech stack and blockchain ecosystem that seemingly optimizes user reach and impact, trading off the ability to interact with users and applications elsewhere due to incompatibility issues. With interoperability, developers no longer have to sacrifi...

It also kicks off a season of acceleration, with the Celo 2.0 technical roadmap landing soon, including timings for meaningful integrations and high-profile partnership launches.

Celo Pilot Tests Whether Quadratic Funding Can Be Used to Encourage Donations to Build Financial Inclusion - As part of its mission to build a financial system that creates the conditions of prosperity for all, the Celo Foundation supports the development of mission-aligned projects, including regenerative finance (ReFi) solutions like the poverty-alleviation protocol impactMarket. Launched on the Celo blockchain in 2019, impactMarket offers a global, decentralized unconditional basic income (UBI) system through which nearly $3 million in UBI has been distributed to over 46K beneficiaries in 226 communities worldwide. Since the start of the year, impactMarket saw user donations decline by nearly 80% amid worsening macroeconomic conditions. To help support people in need who benefit from impactMarket, the Foundation recently conducted an eight-day pilot program using a donation-matching model called quadratic donations. The model is based on a collective approach that can also be applied to voting and payments. The results of the pilot were encouraging — average donor pledges rose by over 84%. — The Quadratic Funding Model and Its Possible Benefits - Results of an informal survey of pilot participants suggest that one important factor when considering whether to donate is the perceived impact of those funds. The key question being whether the people in need will receive those funds.The quadratic funding model used...

A Celo NFT-backed Rewards Pilot a Success In San Francisco

By Evan Fenster, Celo Foundation Atlas Cafe coffeehouse in San Francisco’s Mission district has been a mainstay in the neighborhood since 1996, providing a comfortable place for the local community to eat, drink, socialize, and work. Unfortunately, the pandemic hit Atlas Cafe hard — its ‘regulars’ came a lot less often, as stay-at-home orders disrupted typical routines. This scenario occurred all across the country and around the world. While most businesses have reopened, some have struggled to rebuild their regular clientele. Atlas Cafe was no exception. As an Atlas customer over the summer, a UPenn student working as a summer intern on the Celo Foundation’s Research and Innovation team, and someone who has seen how NFT projects can build brands and communities, I wanted to explore how NFTs might help a local business. This exploration led to an NFT-backed rewards pilot program that simulated how a neighborhood coffee shop could market, onboard, manage, and implement an NFT collection used for rewards. To run the pilot, I received funding from the Celo Foundation and help from my Research and Innovation teammates. Ultimately a success, the pilot served as proof-of-concept for a decentralized rewards protocol called Loka, which is currently in development. — The Atlas Pilot Concept and Design - In May 2022, I began researching how NFT-backed rewards work to help businesses create loyal customers and poss...
