Project Spotlight

Singular

Singular is the Active Investment Management App built on the Celo that's looking to give users superior market returns. It invests in the most popular holdings of top 5% performing Crypto-assets and tracks the top-performing Crypto fund managers globally. AI advice and DeFi capabilities will likely enable Singular to democratize investment solutions for the unbankable and middle class in emerging markets. The Singular App allows users to easily invest in a professionally managed cryptocurrency portfolio, without holding user assets.

Project Kelvin

Project Kelvin is inspired by research into how to make data driven decisions, like the work of Douglas Hubbard, Phillip Tetlock, and Robin Hanson. We believe that these tools are the perfect decision making tools for DAOs, which can lead to better outcomes than existing tools. By combining subjective value metrics (eigenkarma) with objective metrics (monte carlo), Project Kelvin helps to identify the actual best regenerative projects and fund them using our token economic model. Our token economic model is a recursive bonding curve, allowing people to buy into the broad project token, which lets them buy into individual DAO tokens, which can let them buy into individual initiatives within those DAOs.

AQUA Metaverse

AQUA Metaverse is the home of the aquatic sports. brands, athletes and fans, it features NFT games assets, virtual 3d water worlds inspired from real vacation locations around the world. Full featured DeFi Gaming Platform features play to earn, mini-games, NFT creation, minting, marketplace, trading, lending, communities and unique events around water sports and music.
