Kimble outlines five goals that Celo hopes to accomplish before the end of 2020, including creation of a stablecoin ecosystem and decentralized finance protocols: 

“A Universal Basic Income that is tied into a market creation system. Demurrage — institute a small charge for holding money. Natural-capital backed currencies — back money with things that you see. An ecology of money — local, regional, national currencies. Earn money into existence — an alternative to interest-bearing debt.”

Kimble further added:

“The mission of prosperity for everyone will take a long time to achieve. By 2021, our hope is that we’re far along that path with people’s basic needs fulfilled, growing along their unique path, and helping one another in meaningful ways.”

He also notes that Celo hopes to introduce “a Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm, carbon offsetting with each block reward, bounties for regeneratives behavior, [and] and natural capital-backed currencies.”
