When it comes to web3, growth hacking, and reward-based loyalty campaigns are considered go-to strategies to gain followers and build a vibrant community around your project. And platforms like Galxe, Zealy, and Link3 are among the top sources that many projects use for membership campaigns, holding giveaways, and distributing NFTs. But as we ran campaigns on these platforms, there’s one thing that has been disturbing us, and we are sure many projects in the blockchain world alike – inorganic activities during the contests, giveaways, NFT distribution, and airdrops. We have seen multiple examples of Sybil’s attacks on projects trying to build communities through these activities.
In this article, we will focus on Galxe campaigns, a popular and leading web3 marketing platform with over 10 million users. We will also discuss how projects can use BotBasher for Sybil-resistant Galxe campaigns. So let’s get on to it.
The practice of “incentive farming,” or earning rewards through multi-accounting and the use of bots, isn’t new to Web 3 marketing campaigns, it’s been around since the first airdrop in 2018-2019. Regrettably, even Galxe campaigns have not been immune to the activities of these farmers.
For those of you who don’t know about Galxe “Galxe is the leading platform for building the web3 community. With over 10 million unique users to date, Galxe has propelled the growth of Optimism, Polygon, Arbitrum, and more than 2100 partners with reward-based loyalty programs”.
In the quest for Sybil-resistant campaigns, platforms often turn to KYC solutions or other methods that involve collecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Galxe, too, offers its Galxe passport, which securely stores users’ personal information in encrypted form to be used for verifying their uniqueness. However, even with encryption in place, concerns persist regarding the potential risk of data falling into the wrong hands, and not everyone is comfortable sharing their PII even if it’s encrypted. So is there an alternative solution? This is where Humanode’s Discord BotBasher comes in.
BotBasher as a Solution
BotBasher pioneered a Sybil-resistant approach to Sybil Protection by using its unique biometric verification technology. Discord BotBasher brings user-friendly anti-sybil credentials to Galxe campaigns as Galaxe natively supports Discord roles.
By using BotBasher, you can ensure that there’s a unique and actual human behind a Discord account. It implies confidential facial recognition to check the person is unique and alive.
The verification process takes no more than one minute and is done directly in your discord server. One of the best things about BotBasher is its commitment to privacy. Unlike other anti-Sybil tools that require participants to share personal information, BotBasher uses confidential facial recognition technology to confirm the unique identity of each user. No KYC or other personally identifiable information is collected or stored, ensuring that participants can take part in your campaign with peace of mind.
You can use it to make sure 1 person gets 1 reward, 1 OAT, or NFT, or whatever rewards you set up on Galxe. No chances of bots or multi-accounts attacking your campaigns.
