Why Build on Celo?
Celo (@CeloOrg) is a mobile-first, open sourced smart contract platform built on decentralized infrastructure. Celo is designed to make financial tools like banking, peer-to-peer transfers, payments, and stablecoins accessible to anyone with a mobile phone.
- Extremely fast and secure synchronization
- Native support for multiple ERC20-like stable currencies
- Gas payable in multiple currencies
- Programmable smart contract platform compatible with EVM
- Highly scalable and permissionless BFT consensus
- Decentralized identity system that allows users to easily send payments to phone numbers
The Celo ecosystem consists of a community of developers, designers, dreamers, and doers actively working towards creating a global financial system that creates prosperity for everyone.
At Figment, we care about the long term growth and longevity of the Web 3 ecosystem and we understand what developers need to build the next great decentralized application, which is why we have launched Figment Learn.
Learn provides developers with:
- Free and easy access to the protocols necessary to power their applications via DataHub, our highly available full node infrastructure.
- Access to written and streamable educational materials and a diverse community built around learning and fostering ecosystem development.
- Opportunities for developers to earn tokens for completing tutorials and contributing to the community.
We see Figment Learn as the Web 3 Knowledge base that will drive development and grow the Web 3 ecosystem to new heights.
The Celo Learn Pathway
The Celo Learn Pathway allows developers to earn cUSD while gaining the knowledge they need to build mobile-first financial applications on Celo. We will be distributing $50,000 in cUSD to developers who actively complete tutorials and contribute to the community by creating their own tutorials and supporting the growth of the ecosystem.
How to get Involved
Complete Tutorials – $100 in cUSD to first 150 developers, then $20 in cUSD
Developers eager to learn how to build on Celo while earning cUSD need to first create a DataHub account. DataHub will provide you free and easy access to Celo’s RPC, which will allow you to complete the Celo Pathway tutorials.
You can verify that you have completed tutorials correctly on DataHub.
Once you have completed all the tutorials, that’s it! You have learned the basics of building on Celo and have earned $100 in cUSD.
