What Makes Celo Network Different
Decentralized Identity System:
Celo's innovative system links phone numbers to Celo wallet addresses. This provides a seamless and user-friendly mechanism for users, allowing them to perform transactions and onboard onto the platform using a familiar identifier: their mobile number.
At a time when environmental concerns are paramount, Celo's commitment to being carbon negative underlines its responsibility towards the environment. The platform offsets more carbon than it uses, showcasing its dedication to a greener planet.
Celo prioritizes mobile users, aiming to make financial solutions widely accessible even for those only equipped with a mobile device. By doing so, Celo ensures that a vast majority of the global population can engage with its platform, regardless of their access to traditional banking or computer systems.
Localized Stablecoins (cUSD, cEUR, cREAL):
These are specialized stablecoins that are designed to reflect the value of respective fiat currencies. They facilitate consistent and stable value transfers on the platform, enabling users to transact with confidence without the fear of extreme currency volatility.
This consensus algorithm ensures that participants who hold and stake the platform's native asset, CELO, get a say in its governance and operation. It's an energy-efficient approach compared to proof-of-work, ensuring the platform remains scalable and sustainable.
These clients ensure that the platform remains nimble and accessible even to users with limited technological resources. By reducing the resources needed to participate in the network, Celo ensures a wider reach and inclusivity.
Gas Payable in Multiple Currencies:
A flexible approach where users aren't limited to paying transaction fees in just one currency. This enhances user experience by providing flexibility in transactions and ensures that users can interact with the platform in a manner most convenient to them.
