Celo is a blockchain protocol that aims to reduce the barriers of entry to DeFi adoption. Celo is mobile-first, supports sending transactions to mobile numbers, has low gas fees, and supports stablecoins. These make Celo more accessible compared to other protocols
Note: Metamask does not natively support Celo compatibility and some features may not work properly. For example, you have to pay for gas fees in CELO while using a Metamask Wallet. Using a Celo-native wallet allows you to pay for gas using multiple currencies. Follow this link for more info.
Here are a list of Celo-Native Wallet Apps
You can purchase CELO on a CEX like Coinbase, Binance or KuCoin and send it to your Celo Wallet. This link contains a list of exchanges that list CELO
Bridging CELO from Ethereum Mainnet to Celo Network
Congratulations! You have now successfully bridged CELO from Ethereum Mainnet to Celo Network.
Bridging Funds to CELO from Ethereum Mainnet.
You can use Ubeswap to bridge tokens from the Ethereum Mainnet to Celo.
Note: If you’re using a Metamask wallet, I recommend sending some CELO to your address from a CEX and then bridging funds as Metamask allows you to pay for gas fees only with CELO (unlike Celo native wallets)
Congratulations! You have now learnt how to setup a Celo Wallet and Bridge Funds.
