๐Ÿ—บ Celo Pathway

Learn what makes Celo unique and build your first Celo smart contract

โ€‹ Welcome to the Celo Pathway

Celoโ€™s aim is to empower anyone with a smartphone anywhere in the world to have access to financial services, send money to phone numbers, and pay merchants -- on a decentralized platform that is operated by a community of users. To achieve this, Celo offers a complete stack of new blockchain software, core libraries that run on that blockchain, and end-user applications including a Wallet app that communicates with that logic. Learn what makes it unique and build your first project.

There are currently no rewards for completing the intro Pathway. Advanced Pathways will be released shortly and provide new opportunities to earn.
