I hope you are all enjoying the last summer weeks of the year. As promised you during our July updates, we are back to update you with the latest activities we have been up to over the last month.
A lot has happened over the last month, let’s dig into it!
Highlights of August:
🎉🎉🎉 WAX Galaxy website is now live — Yayyyy! 🎉🎉🎉
Our new website features our activities, products, services and the cool things happening in the ecosystem.

Before further diving into more of our activities, let’s look at some of the highlights in the WAX ecosystem over the last 30days:

WAX Galaxy Updates from August
As a Guild, our primary objective is to provide a stable infrastructure to the network. Our the last couple of months we have been working hard to upgrade our infrastructure and monitoring systems. We have made a lot of progress and now our infra is passing all the checks now.
- You can find information about our endpoints here.
- Our Hyperion public API is now live and we are serving more than a million requests per day.
- Our block producer node on the testnet also maintained 100% Round Availability though we missed some blocks.
Upcoming for September:
- We will migrate our proxy server to Cloudflare and use its global network to optimise and scale our API endpoints.
- We are also working on launching metered API services to support Dapps.
- We have launched and will scale the services to provide standalone nodes to support Dapps.
If you have any custom needs or want someone to offer standalone API nodes, feel free to reach out by sending a message to @sukeshtedla on telegram.

Our community engagement contributions:
In addition to the above, we also actively engage in growing the community through content creation, marketing and promotional activities. Here is a quick summary highlighting our activities:
During last month, we covered the OIG elections very actively and this time around, we identified that there is a lack of awareness & information on WAX Defi and decided to work on it:
- Potential of WAX DEFI — https://waxgalaxy.io/blog/wax-could-offer-the-best-nft-defi-option-this-decade [We will also get this promoted and shared this coming month with a giveaway NFT for WAX defi]
- WAX Defi Summary — WAX DEFI has been returning high rewards averaging around ~70% APR! yet awareness is still very low. In order to help raise awareness, we created a page on our new website that lists out the rewards distributed to date. People can now easily see the consistent rewards WAX has distributed over time when making the decision to enter WAX DEFI. We will continue to promote WAX DEFI using stats from this page and add charts to help the visualisation. — https://waxgalaxy.io/wax-blockchain-defi
Marketing Campaigns & Giveaways:
- We are regularly creating graphics to highlight the stats: https://twitter.com/waxgalaxyio/status/1428076725129285641?s=20
- We distributed the rewards to users of the WAX Sales Bot — https://twitter.com/waxgalaxyio/status/1426122464728285190?s=20
- Also did a Twitter giveaway to promote the new website and to gain community insights on what content they would like to see (2x standard FUNKOpacks) — https://twitter.com/waxgalaxyio/status/1425925875816562690?s=20
- We also promoted the carbon offset launch https://twitter.com/waxgalaxyio/status/1427386708014731274?s=19 and our team member bought a “save the planet” pack for $200 and burnt the contents which is the equivalent of 200 tonnes of carbon whilst also taking the chance to create awareness for the project https://twitter.com/Waxtronaut_/status/1428137911476654080?s=19
