Developing a Simple Decentralized P2P Video Conferencing Application on the Celo Blockchain using WebRTC and React Native

In this tutorial, you will learn how to develop a decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) video conferencing application on the Celo blockchain using WebRTC and React Native. We’ll understand the fundamentals of WebRTC, including signaling, peer connection establishment, and media stream management. Setting up the Celo blockchain environment will involve installing the necessary tools and libraries to interact with the network. Using React Native, we shall build the application’s user interface and user experience (UI/UX), considering cross-platform compatibility.

Integration of WebRTC functionality will enable real-time video and audio communication, including media stream handling and synchronization. Ensuring security and privacy will involve encryption, user authentication, and secure signaling mechanisms. Integrating with the Celo blockchain will facilitate user identity management, payment processing, and smart contract interactions for transactions related to the application.

Finally, we’ll deploy the video conferencing app to real devices or emulators for users to experience its peer-to-peer capabilities.
By the end of the tutorial, you’ll have gained the skills to develop a secure and decentralized video conferencing application on the Celo blockchain, empowering users with direct, private, and censorship-resistant communication
