Colourful red, blue and yellow banner with bolded text, deep dive into Galxe

It’s been almost 9 months since we launched Galxe in May 2021. These last 9 months have been wild and we accomplished far more than what we expected. Over this period, we had 150k unique on-chain users from 6 different blockchain ecosystems. Galxe Credential Data Network now has over 500 digital credential sets covering 3 million+ users in Web3. Over 100 projects and organizations have leveraged Galxe’s digital credential data launching over 500 campaigns. It would not be possible to accomplish all of these without our wonderful community, partners, and supporters. Today we want to take the chance to talk more about our mission, future plans, and some past highlights.

Our Mission

At Galxe, we are building the infrastructure to power an open and collaborative credential data network. We help Web3 developers leverage credential data to build better products and communities. At the same time, data curators contribute to our credential data network while earning income once the data is utilized.

What are digital credentials

Credentials live in our day-to-day life. An example of on-chain credentials would be the record that you borrowed money from AAVE and Compound but never got liquidated. Your contribution to a protocol’s liquidity pool when it first launched, or your on-chain voting history are all credentials. All of your behavioral data in Web2 counts towards your credentials and companies like Google and Facebook run algorithms on your credentials so that they can send you targeted advertisements.

Credentials are important due to the high use case they provide. Applications can use your credentials to calculate credit scores, find target audiences, reward community contributors, etc. With the advance of Web3 and DAOs, there will be an explosion of behavioral data generated by waves of new users. This will provide the necessary infrastructure to help these new users build digital credentials that will be of paramount importance.

What’s the problem with the current credential system

Credential data today is segregated across closed databases that are owned and permissioned by applications, government organizations, and financial and credit institutions. This has led to a fractured landscape that is not open to the individuals who should own that data or the applications that need it. Galxe aims to solve this problem using an open and collaborative credential data network which will help Web3 developers leverage credential data to build better products and more engaging communities.

Galxe Solution

Galxe aims to build an open and collaborative credential data network that is accessible to all developers in Web3. We provide the infrastructure for community members to curate and contribute digital credentials to our data network. Our infrastructure supports curating credentials through multiple data sources. For on-chain credentials, curators can contribute with subgraph queries or static snapshots. For off-chain credentials, we have integrated with data sources such as Snapshot.org, Twitter, and Github.

By contributing to Galxe’s Credential Data Network, curators are rewarded when credentials are used in Galxe’s Application Modules, Credential Oracle Engine, and Credential API. Because there are users consuming (paying to use) data in our ecosystem, this incentivizes more users to come curate for our data network.

To this day, over 100 partners have already launched over 500 campaigns on Galxe. here are some case studies to provide more info:

Galxe ID

With Galxe Credentials, we will be able to build a Web3 DID system that not only gives you a multi-chain identity but also lets others know more about you through your past achievements/credentials. Projects like Cyberconnect, Unipass, and Salad Venture are already utilizing Galxe Credentials within their products and we look forward to exploring this more in the future.

Build with Galxe

If you want to contribute credentials to the Galxe data network, or leverage Galxe Credentials in our product/community, you can apply for access for Closed Beta here. We are also hiring! If you are interested in becoming part of the history in building Web3 Credential Data Network, check out our job openings here. We are super excited for the journey ahead.

About Galxe (previously Project Galaxy)

Galxe is building a protocol that powers on-chain credentials with plug-and-play NFT modules. The permissionless infrastructure allows everyone to create, distribute, and gamify NFTs with customized on-chain data. Developers can build their own loyalty programs, and individuals can issue and claim the NFTs backed by their on-chain achievements.

With Galxe, NFTs become more than just collectibles, but also forms of identification, empowering developers and community members to build more engaging communities together.
