An Inside Look at Prosperity Passports

At Masa, we’re thrilled to be bringing our Soulbound Token technology to Celo. Celo’s large global user base, in addition to its mobile-first, low-gas and fast transaction speeds made it the perfect choice for our first major blockchain integration after our mainnet launch on Ethereum earlier in 2023.

Our vision is that by bringing soulbound technology to Celo, we create an ecosystem of trust which has minimal to no barrier of entry for people all over the world. Attracting new users to the Celo ecosystem and enabling existing users to access great financial products and services, including used for universal basic income, reputation scores and other financial products, universal basic income, reputation scores and other financial products.

By introducing SBTs to Celo projects and developers, we envision projects throughout the ecosystem building and integrating SBTs to their existing DeFi projects and Dapps. We have some exciting partnerships lined up within the Celo Ecosystem in the near future. Stay tuned!

Users can get started by minting their Prosperity Passport, which automatically creates their soulbound identity on Celo. Users also have the ability to mint a .celo domain, similar to an ENS domain, but on the Celo blockchain. All of which are explained below…

.Celo Domains

Once you create your Prosperity Passport, you can give it a domain name in the format of .celo, similar to an ENS. Up next, we’ll be working to integrate full .celo domain names within the Celo ecosystem wallet infrastructure, so you can use your .celo as your human-readable address across Celo.

Feel free to mint as many .celo domains as you like. Use any creative combination of letters, numbers and emojis, to create fun, unique and rare .celo domains.Don’t forget to share your newly minted .celo on social!
