Alien Worlds
5 min readAug 11, 2022


The Galactic Hubs team chose individuals independent of Dacoco with a unique combination of skills, backgrounds, and experience in NFTs, software development, communications and real-world applications to represent grant categories. Judges are tasked with selecting candidates from a pool of verified applicants whose proposal illustrates public benefit to the ecosystem, execution skills, clear deliverables, and a clear use of funds. Following a four-week development period, category judges are then to evaluate, and score projects with consideration to the application’s intended goals. Throughout the process, their aim is to guide and support projects that inspire others and perfectly blend the interests of our community and the Alien Worlds ecosystem.
