Today we are excited to announce that we have joined the Celo Alliance for Prosperity, a mission-aligned network of organizations fostering social impact and financial inclusion through the use of blockchain technology.

As the new Alliance member, we are joining other global leading member organizations including Andreessen Horowitz, Coinbase Ventures, and B12, to work towards building an open monetary system that creates conditions of prosperity for all.

We share a mutual vision with Celo Alliance in making digital assets more accessible and useful in our everyday lives, and we will specifically work on extending the usability of KLAY and securing the usability of Celo stablecoins. Further, we will together perform a research on interoperability of the two blockchain protocols so that we can stimulate sustainable growth and bring meaningful use cases.

“We are excited to see Klaytn select Celo as the first external blockchain it will interoperate with. By building a bridge between Klaytn and Celo, Klaytn will expand its own ecosystem, and make it simple for people in Korea and across Asia to send and save with Celo.” — Chuck Kimble, the Head of Celo Alliance for Prosperity.

클레이튼이 미국 블록체인 금융서비스 전문 기업 셀로(Celo)가 주도하는 글로벌 금융 혁신 연합 ‘셀로 얼라이언스(Celo Alliance)’에 참여하게 되었습니다.

얼라이언스 포 프로스퍼리티(Alliance for Prosperity·번영을 위한 협의체)는 셀로 재단의 비영리 커뮤니티로, 금융 서비스에서 소외된 사람들에게 쉽고 편리한 모바일 금융 서비스를 제공하여 블록체인 기반의 오픈 암호화폐 시스템 수립을 목표로 합니다.

얼라이언스 회원들은 금융 생태계 확대를 위해 블록체인 기반의 금융 인프라 개발, 기술 협력, 커뮤니티 확대 등 다양한 방식으로 커뮤니티를 지원하고 거버넌스에 참여하게 됩니다.

클레이튼과 셀로는 이번 협약을 통해 두 블록체인 네트워크 간 상호운용성을 위한 공동 연구를 진행하고자 합니다. 더불어, 클레이튼의 클레이(KLAY)와 셀로에서 발행하는 스테이블코인 사용성 확보 등 디지털 자산의 활성화 확대에 집중할 예정입니다.
