The firm has reportedly expressed its gratitude towards the “commitment, passion, expertise, and engagement of over 100 independent validators around the world”, in helping set up the network. 

Previously, the Celo Foundation has managed to secure $10 million for the project, via a CoinList-based Dutch auction on May 12th. The auction ended in under 12 hours, with sales for the cGLD conducted for $1 each.
