By on September 30, 2021 0

Celo, the first mobile blockchain focused on emerging markets, announced the launch of Provo, a value-added sandbox for public and official sector experimentation on the Celo blockchain.

Through Provo, central banks can explore and experience central bank digital currencies and other digital assets.

According to Celo, the Provo service will allow central banks to test CBDC designs and implementation mechanisms in authorized and / or unauthorized and risk-free environments.

In addition, Celo claims that a new test environment will allow customers to design and test various broadcast, distribution, privacy and surveillance designs.

Provo customers will also have full access to a Celo testnet, which will bring several benefits:

  • Help them gain first-hand experience in issuing their first tokens
  • Visualization of transaction flows
  • Make decisions based on real-time analytics
  • Ability to experience the Cell platform as an end user

Celo also says customers will receive support from a team of engineers, economists and policy experts from cLabs and have access to a global community of developers and technologists who support Celo.
