Case Study: Shadowy Super Coder

Challenge Developers of the Web3 ecosystem are often overlooked and underappreciated. Galxe wanted to design and reward developers with a special Shadowy Super Coder NFT to all of those who contributed to our ecosystem. We then thought of a way to also help the developers by recreating something similar to the GitHub education pack.

Solution Back in August 2021, Galxe along with Tenderly, Alchemy, Polygon, Gitcoin, Ankr, Parsiq, Torus, Quicknode, Curvegrid, and OneKey launched the “Shadowy Super Coder” NFT Pack to over 100,000 eligible blockchain developers. The package includes a specially-designed Shadowy Coder NFT, and various exclusive perks worth $300 million USD.
