Explore with Saros #6: Everything you need to know about Project Galaxy (GAL)

Getting to know Project Galaxy

Project Galaxy is a crypto project that facilitates the infrastructure for Web 3.0, and digital credentials specifically.

To achieve the idealogy of Web 3.0, which is decentralization, users have to be able to freely manage their own data and actively participate in Web 3.0 themselves. Project Galaxy provides the tools for developers and users to accomplish that.

Project Galaxy Business Model

Project Galaxy creates a Credential Data Network that involves both users who are willing to buy the data Project Galaxy provides and curators who are incentivized to provide such data for the network.

By contributing to Galaxy’s Credential Data Network, curators are rewarded when credentials are used in Galaxy’s Application Modules, Credential Oracle Engine, and Credential API.

Use cases of the Application Modules include:

  • Galaxy OATs (On-chain Achievement Tokens).
  • NFT Loyalty Programs.
  • Growth Hacking Campaigns.
  • Gated Community.
  • Customized Governance.

Use cases of Credential Oracle Engine and Credential API include:

  • Credit scoring.
  • Sybil attack prevention algorithms.

Curators can provide their credentials in 2 types:

  • On-chain: With subgraph queries or static snapshots.
  • Off-chain: Via partnered data sources like Snapshot.org, Twitter, and Github.

Another feature of Project Galaxy is Galaxy ID. Galaxy ID is basically a Web 3.0 Linkedin where users can put up their digital credentials and identities. By setting up a profile on Galaxy ID, users can showcase their crypto achievements and information, which can possibly be expanded into the metaverse for more diverse use cases in the future.

Recently, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that our very first NFT line - Sarosism - will be featured on Project Galaxy Campaign.
