Yes, it’s true - we’re multi-chain now.
We very happy to announce to our community that Talent Protocol is now live on Polygon. This means that you can now choose to launch your own Talent Token on Celo or on Polygon.
Launching on a second blockchain was one of our main promises for Season 02 and it’s finally here. We are now ready to take our community to explore a new ecosystem, with a different liquidity reality and towards new synergies for talented builders and their supporters.
How to launch your Talent Token on Polygon
First of all, you need a Talent Protocol account. Since we’ve killed our private beta, anyone is free to join our community! Sign-up, complete your profile and connect your wallet and you’ll be set to apply to launch your own token.
As soon as our team reviews and approves your application, you can launch it and start adding supporters to your web3 professional journey 🚀
We have a complete guide for you to follow when the times to tokenize your career comes. You can find it here. However, here are a few tips that you can take already with you:
- Assure that your Talent Protocol profile is up to date and reflects your true potential ✨
- Make sure you select the blockchain of your choice in Metamask (we support both Celo and Polygon).
- Click on Edit Profile and go to the Token section. There you can choose to Deploy your Token (don’t forget to confirm your transactions in Metamask in order to go through the rest of the process!)
A Talent Token is just the beginning
Turning your career into a multiplayer journey allows you to accelerate your potential and lean on the community’s support to reach the goals you’ve set up for yourself. When you launch your Talent Token, you are taking the first step towards creating an economy that revolves around you and your high-potential and this is visible when you become able to turn loose connections into an invested network of supporters.
However, as most things in life - and especially in web3 - how well you do is really dependent on your efforts. Our job is to give you the tools, so here are a few:
- A beginner’s guide to start building your Web3 CV
- How to find supporters to your Web3 career
- Level Up - Talent Protocol’s community-led mentorship program
- Follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn to learn more about the future of careers and join us on Discord to participate and build with us!

Why we went multi-chain with Polygon
Providing our community with the best tools and opportunities to thrive is something constantly on our minds. When we launched in November 2021 on the Celo blockchain, we did it knowing that we were in the right ecosystem to kick things off, counting with the support of an incredible community.
We knew, however, that expanding to other blockchains would be crucial to reach audiences we wanted, for both Talent and Supporters. Additionally, including other blockchains allows us to explored different scaling opportunities, namely through compatibility and liquidity.
Polygon is a platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development that hosts more than 37 thousand decentralized application, +143M unique users addresses and over $5B in assets secured. It is also carbon neutral, something very relevant to us.
