Ano ang Celo? (CELO)
Ang Gabay para sa mga Baguhan
Celo is a platform acting as a global payment infrastructure for cryptocurrencies that aims to target mobile users.
To this end, Celo’s goal is for financial activity to be accessible to anyone globally thanks to its ability for payments to be sent to and from any phone number in the world.
In addition to basic payments, Celo can support the development of decentralized applications on its blockchain. Thus far, these dapps include one allowing anyone to contribute to a community’s universal basic income scheme, as well as a crowdfunding platform for social causes.
Central to running the operations on its blockchain, Celo operates two native tokens: CELO, a governance asset for voting on changes to the protocol and Celo Dollars (cUSD), a stablecoin mirroring the value of the US dollar.
Users seeking to stay connected on the project’s current development status, and the dapps that are being built on it, can follow the official Celo blog for up-to-date details.
Sino Gumawa ng Celo Crypto?
Ang Celo ay co-founded noong 2017 nina Rene Reinsberg at Marek Olszewski, na mga executive sa web hosting firm na GoDaddy, kasama sina Sep Kamvar at Marek Olszewski, isang MIT professor at Google executive.
Sa pagitan ng 2018 at 2020, nakalikom si Celo ng mahigit $46.5 milyon sa pamamagitan ng pagbebenta ng humigit-kumulang 120 milyong CELO token sa pribado at pampublikong pagbebenta ng token. Kabilang sa mga kilalang mamumuhunan ang mga venture capital firm na a16z Crypto, General Catalyst at Social Capital.
Paano gumagana ang Celo?
The Celo network relies on three contributors to help run its platform:
- Light Clients – Celo Network applications running on user’s mobile devices, such as Celo’s mobile wallet.
- Validator Nodes – Computers who participate in Celo’s consensus mechanism, validate transactions and produce new blocks.
- Full Nodes – Computers that act as the bridge between Validator nodes and mobile wallets, taking requests from light clients and forwarding transactions to validator nodes.
Of note, Celo’s system requires that the validator nodes be voted in by CELO token holders.
Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT)
Central to Celo is a Proof of Stake governance mechanism called the Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) that keeps the distributed network of computers in sync.
In order for validator nodes to power the blockchain and vote on changes, they must first stake a minimum of 10,000 CELO tokens, meaning that anyone who owns CELO can help operate the network.
Currently, there are only 100 validator nodes at any one time, voted on by the full nodes, and each node is subsequently rewarded with a portion of the block reward for validating the transactions.
Full nodes receive their rewards from the fees paid out by the light clients.
A key feature of Celo is its ability to operate stablecoins, such as cUSD, which offers the efficiency and transparency of crypto transactions, while providing relief from the volatility of these assets.
Celo automatically ensures that the value of each cUSD equals one US dollar using what they call a programmatic reserve, an overcollateralized reserve consisting of CELO and other cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH). This means that cUSD can be sold for an equivalent value of CELO, and vice versa.
In the future, Celo plans to allow CELO holders to propose and vote on the creation of stablecoins that mirror the value of other national currencies, such as the euro or yen.
Bakit may halaga ang CELO?
Ang CELO cryptocurrency ay gumaganap ng isang mahalagang papel sa pagpapanatili at pagpapatakbo ng Celo platform, at maaaring gamitin para sa pagpapadala, pagtanggap, paghawak at pag-stake.
Sa pamamagitan ng pagmamay-ari at pag-stake ng mga token ng CELO, ang mga user ay nakakakuha ng kakayahan para bumoto sa mga upgrade ng network, na ang bawat boto ay proporsyonal sa halaga ng CELO cryptocurrency na kanilang nai-stake, at ang mga participant ay makakakuha ng mga reward mula sa network para sa paggawa nito.
Tulad ng iba pang mga cryptocurrency, ang supply ng mga CELO token ay limitado lamang, ibig sabihin ayon sa mga rule ng software, magkakaroon lamang ng 1 billion CELO.

Bakit kailangan mong gumamit ng CELO?
Ang mga gumagamit ay maaaring maakit sa CELO batay sa abilidad ng network na maabot ang mas maraming gumagamit nito sa lahat ng dako ng teknolohiya tulad ng mga smartphone.
Ang mga namumuhunan ay naghahangad rin na bumili ng CELO at idagdag ito sa kanilang portfolio kung dapat ba silang maniwala sa hinaharap ng pagbabayad ng ifrastructure na binuo para sa mga mobile phone.
