Learn-to-earn with Coin Gecko

“DeFi 101” NFT Campaign


The fast-growing DeFi space is quite overwhelming for new users entering the space and even for full degens, it’s hard to keep up with all the innovation and changes. Project Galaxy and Coin Gecko wanted to create a fun way to educate and incentivize DeFi beginners and enthusiasts on the Web3 ecosystem.


In collaboration, we created the ultimate DeFi course to reward and incentive users through a learn-to-earn formula. The “DeFi 101” NFT Campaign included 5 courses, each with its own task on different DeFi protocols. Users received badges for each accomplished task and honor student badges were given to users that completed all 5 courses.


A total of 16,730 users participated in the campaign and over 2600 OATs (On-chain achievement tokens) were minted for each course. The campaign also helped each individual protocol grow their communities and have new users learn more about the world of Web3.

About Project Galaxy

Project Galaxy is the largest Web3 credential data network in the world. Built on open and collaborative infrastructure, Project Galaxy helps developers and organizations leverage NFTs and digital credential data to build better products and communities in Web3.

Project Galaxy OAT

Galaxy OATs (On-Chain Achievement Tokens) are a creative solution to distribute NFT badges to communities as a record of participation. Brands and projects can use Project Galaxy’s infrastructure to create their own personalized OATs to reward their users. This includes anything from in-person events, various online interactions, or even AMA’s.

Galaxy OATs are used for validation that a user performed an action or participated in a specific event. You can transfer or sell your OAT, but the record of the action is stored on the Galaxy Credential data network. Available on Polygon and BNB chains, OATs appear in all NFT marketplaces so you can show them off.
