Grant for Education

Brief Description

Hey UMA Team (:

We are Galaxia Studios - a new & unique web3 gaming studio focused on on-chain gaming.
We are now live on the Polygon network with more than 5 games and dapps and are expanding to more EVM-compatible chains (Ethereum, Arbitrum, Optimisms and more) in the upcoming weeks!

We want to create educational content about UMA through gaming and would love to explore how UMA Grants can help us with this.

Our main principles are:

  • Fully on-chain applications.
  • Open-source development.
  • Focused on creating fun and innovative products.
  • Abstracting complex tech to everyday users.

Our team is composed of diverse and multidisciplinary individuals and our founders won a number of world-class competitions in the blockchain space (ETH Global hackathons in 2021 & 2022).


Detailed description
We will create an educational game that will guide users on how to use the UMA protocol.
The game 'Wizards of Willowdale’ will let users learn about the technical concepts behind UMA protocol and how to use it throughout the game. The game will include dynamically changing NFTs, and as the user makes progress in the game and completes tasks that are related to UMA protocol, it will receive more NFTs and the NFTs will change their appearance dynamically as they make progress.
