A Web3 Credential Data Network.
  • Project Galaxy is a Web3 credential data network. Built on an open and collaborative infrastructure, Project Galaxy helps Web3 developers and projects leverage digital credential data and NFTs to build better products and communities.

    • Project Galaxy enables curators to aggregate credentials through multiple data sources on-chain and off-chain.
    • Project Galaxy empowers developers to leverage credentials through Application Modules, Credential Oracle, and Credential API.
  • GAL is Project Galaxy’s native utility and governance token, it has the following use cases:

    • Governance: GAL token holders can vote on Project Galaxy DAO’s governance proposals.
    • Paying for Fees: Developers who aim to utilize Galaxy’s credential data will be charged in GAL.
    • Curating Credentials: Curators are incentivized to stake GAL token to signal a credential data sets value. Each credential data set will include a revenue stream that will be split between credential stakeholders pro-rata.
  • Project Galaxy consists of the following major components working in conjunction:

    • Credential Data Network: Project Galaxy’s infrastructure supports curators contributing credentials through multiple data sources including:
      • On-chain Credentials: Contribute data from 7 different chains with subgraph queries or wallet snapshots
      • Off-chain Credentials: Contribute data through Galaxy’s integrated data sources such as Twitter, Github, or Discord
    • Application Modules: Project Galaxy offers several application modules to help Web3 projects build better products and more engaging communities.
      • Galaxy OAT (On-Chain Achievement Token): A solution to distribute NFT badges to communities as a record of participation in a gasless fashion.
      • Galaxy NFT: Enables communities to leverage credentials with gamified NFT campaigns to better reward and engage users.
      • Galaxy Vote: Enables communities to leverage credentials and credential-based NFTs on Snapshot to build a customized governance system.
    • Galaxy Credential API: Developers can utilize credential data from their off-chain applications to build Web3 LinkedIn, guilds, voting infrastructure, sybil attack prevention algorithms, etc.
    • Galaxy Credential Oracle: Developers can query credential data from smart contracts for customized on-chain use cases such as credit scoring, liquidity mining boost, allowlist for INO or IDO, etc.
    • Galaxy ID: Galaxy ID leverages Galaxy Credentials and acts as a Web3 LinkedIn. Galaxy ID can be users’ universal username that will represent their multichain/multi-wallet identities in Web3.

1. What is Project Galaxy?

  • Project Galaxy is a Web3 credential data network. Built on open and collaborative infrastructure, Project Galaxy helps Web3 developers and projects leverage digital credential data and NFTs to build better products and communities.

  • Credential data today are segregated across closed databases that are owned and permissioned by applications and 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. Project Galaxy aims to solve this problem by empowering developers with an aggregated credential data network in Web3.

  • Galaxy’s infrastructure supports curators contributing credentials through multiple data sources, including:

    • For on-chain credentials, curators can contribute data from 7 different chains with subgraph queries or wallet snapshots
    • For off-chain credentials, curators can easily contribute credential data with Galaxy’s integrated data sources such as Twitter, Github, or Discord
  • Project Galaxy also provides Application Modules, the Credential Oracle Engine, and the Credential API for data consumers to leverage credentials.

    • Use cases of the Application Modules include, among other benefits, Galaxy OATs (On-chain Achievement Tokens), NFT loyalty programs, growth hacking campaigns, gated community and customized governance.
    • Developers can also utilize the Credential Oracle Engine and Credential API for enhanced customized use cases such as credit scoring and sybil attack prevention algorithms.

1.1 Project Galaxy's Key Highlights

  • Galaxy ID: Users can display the credentials collected in the Web3 world and showcase the history of their achievements and contributions. Currently, there are more than 1.2 million users registered for Galaxy ID.
  • More than 300 protocols and organizations are currently using Project Galaxy’s credential data network and application modules. In total, Project Galaxy has launched more than 2300 marketing campaigns and loyalty programs. More than 500,000 credential-based NFTs are minted every month.
  • Galaxy OAT (On-Chain Achievement Token): OAT is a creative solution to distribute credential-based badges to communities as a record of participation. It is a lightweight NFT module created by Project Galaxy that enables users to mint in a gasless fashion.
  • Chain-Agnostic Credential Network: Project Galaxy infrastructure is currently aggregating credentials through 7 different chains (Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, Solana, Fantom, Arbitrum, Avalanche), and has integrated multiple sources such as Twitter, Discord, Github. Project Galaxy currently has more than 1500 credential data sets curated in the network, covering more than 4 million wallet addresses in Web3.
  • Earn from curating data: Curators will earn revenue streams when the data they curate is utilized in Galaxy’s Application Modules, Credential Oracle Engine, and Credential API. This creates a network effect because as more credential data flows into the system, the more developers will onboard to utilize such data, and in turn incentivize more curators to contribute credentials.
  • Incentivized Curation System leveraging GAL staking: Curators are incentivized to stake GAL tokens to signal a credential data set’s value. Each credential data set will include a revenue stream that will be split between credential stakeholders’ pro-rata. In the future, GAL stakers can also enjoy long-term benefits when using Project Galaxy’s Application Modules.
