What is Masa?
At Valora we’re excited to share this week’s dapp spotlight with Masa Finance .

Additionally, Masa provides tools for Web3 developers to easily offer digital identity services that improve participation in their communities.
With a recent launch on Celo, the Masa community has expanded to an engaged ecosystem - with the Valora wallet as an easy way for any user to get started. By partnering together Masa x Celo x Valora, our goal is to connect Valora users with Masa’s growing community and introduce them to an exciting and accessible way to begin building an identity in Web3 - starting with a special offer to claim their own unique .celo Domain Name (for free!).

What opportunities do you have with Masa?
Once you create a .celo domain name, you can take advantage of a new solution called Prosperity Passport, which is a unique identity solution for the Celo blockchain. This feature is a decentralized identity solution that aims to provide users with increased privacy, security, and control over your digital identity.
It utilizes soulbound tokens, unique digital assets connected to users' identities, to privately authenticate and secure their identities across Web3 dapps. By verifying your identity on the Celo blockchain, users can create a soulbound token that grants user access to various services and applications. The soulbound token is bound to the user, and only the rightful owner can access this digital identity.
Prosperity Passport is one of the key tools that this Masa partnership unlocks to provide Valora users with enhanced privacy, improved security against malicious actions and a seamless user experience through interoperability with other decentralized identity solutions.
