Imagine the concert tickets or NBA tickets you bought or any events you’ve been to, come with an NFT, wouldn’t it be interesting to have a credential to showcase for it?

Well, wait no more. Today, we are excited to share with you a new NFT badge feature added to the Galxe platform — introducing Galxe OAT (On-chain Achievement Token, or you can just call it GOAT) co-launched with Polygon Studios powered by Polygon and NFT.Storage powered by IPFS and Filecoin.

Brother, may I have some OAT?

Introducing Galxe OAT

Galxe OAT aims to be a light-weight solution for event organizers and community managers to utilize Galxe’s NFT infrastructure and on-chain credential data network to build and distribute NFT badge campaigns easily and reward their community members.

  • Event organizers can create their dedicated pages on galxe.com, create events and credentials just by submitting the parameters and the design of the badge.
  • Users or event participants will be able to claim their NFTs just via their email with gas-less minting experience.
  • OAT is currently only available on Polygon as ERC-721 token, and will have native support with OpenSea and most of the wallet apps.
  • The metadata of all OAT NFTs will be stored on NFT.Storage powered by IPFS and Filecoin.

For event organizers, apply for Dashboard beta access to create your first event now: https://to.galaxy.eco/application

“We’re thrilled with the launch of Galxe OAT — if 2021 was the breakthrough year for NFTs as culture, 2022 is the year for NFTs as utilities. On-chain credentials are powerful signaling tools for communities — and to be truly accessible require driving the cost of creation, storage, and bandwidth to be negligible. The immutable linking of IPFS and verifiable storage of Filecoin are ideal choices to support the massive amounts of NFT data communities will generate and ensure their data is never lost.” — Jonathan Victor, Growth Lead for NFT.Storage

Galxe OAT will not only be limited to loyalty programs for NFT, DeFi, Metaverse projects but also for real-world events and life experiences as well. In order to better prepare for future demands, we will continue to update OAT with the following features:

  1. Open API for Integration within other Web3 apps
  2. Claim badge by scanning QR codes
  3. Notifications for users when there are OATs available for you
  4. And more!

We look forward to receiving any valuable feedback from our community. We encourage our community, either Developers / Non Developers to experience OAT as our Beta Tester today.

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.
