July Highlight — Celo’s code is open source
and the network is live for testing

Watch the livestream of the Alfajores testnet

On July 17, Celo open-sourced and shared the entire codebase and design, the result of two years of hard work. Celo also launched the first prototype of Celo’s platform, named Alfajores Testnet, as well as the Celo Wallet, an accompanying Android app for managing accounts and making and requesting payments on the Testnet.

We invite everyone to get involved with the journey ahead. Develop, run a node, apply for fellowship, organize an event and more.
