impactLabs Becomes Validator on Celo Proof-of-Stake Network

All profits will be donated to contribute to impactMarket’s mission of human empowerment



impactMarket, the leading human empowerment protocol already serving over 40,000 beneficiaries around the world, runs on the Celo blockchain, on open source, permissionless global infrastructure.

At impactLabs, the company building impactMarket, as big believers in Celo’s mission of prosperity for all, today we announce the launch of our validator group, directly supporting the Celo network and helping ensure its integrity. This is exactly the validator’s role: make the ecosystem run smoothly and safely and make sure the service is working as supposed.

We are excited to share that we are doing so with the support of Cnstnt, and have officially transitioned over their validators. We plan to donate all profits from running the validator group directly to impactMarket communities.

As Peter Downs, the founder of Cnstnt said: “impactMarket is one of my favorite web3 protocols and a powerful use case. I am excited to support the impactLabs team in this transition!”. We are grateful for the such positive feedback!

Marco Barbosa, the founder of impactMarket stated: “We are really happy to deepen our commitment to the Celo ecosystem. We joined Celo Foundation’s DeFi for the People Initiative in February 2022 and we recently joined the Social Impact Collective. Today marks another step to accelerate our collective path towards positive change through financial inclusion and economic prosperity.”
