Build with Celo – Tokenized Carbon

The “Build with Celo – Tokenized Carbon” hackathon was the first of 4 monthly hackathons in Celo’s “Build with Celo” (B_WC) series. As the first B_WC hackathon partner, we helped projects get their climate-positive dApps off the ground. And now, as hackathon round #1 has come to a close, we are excited to show you the amazing submissions we’ve received!

B_WC: A Virtual Multi-Month Hackathon for the Common Good

B_WC is a virtual multi-month hackathon that invites developers from around the globe to build on ideas for the common good. Every month, the hackathon focuses on a specific topic and challenge. Everyone can use these challenges as opportunities to iterate and improve on their ideas, or to build out a new idea! If you’re interested in learning more about B_WC or want to apply, visit the official B_WC website. The next applications can be submitted from 1st of June onwards. The topic: adding social sign-in to your project with Masa’s .celo Soulnames and/or Social Connect.
