MoonRealm Express Accelerator: Empowering Web3 Builders Worldwide
MoonRealm Express Accelerator is a comprehensive program designed to empower Web3 builders across the globe. It aspires to accelerate development in emerging sectors such as decentralized identity, SocialFi, and GameFi. The program encourages builders to cultivate fresh ideas and solutions within the Mocaverse ecosystem. Those interested can sign up for updates and notifications regarding the accelerator program here.
The primary objective of MoonRealm Express Accelerator is to assist aspiring builders in translating conceptual ideas into tangible real-world solutions. The program spans the entire growth cycle of a Web3 startup, offering support from the conceptualization stage to Web3 masterclasses, builder-centric hackathons, and the incubation of high-quality projects.
MoonRealm Express Accelerator: Focus on Mocaverse’s Ecosystem Expansion
The inaugural cohort of the accelerator will concentrate on building and extending Mocaverse’s ecosystem. This aligns with the recent launch of Moca ID and Realm Points on the Polygon chain. An upcoming hackathon in early 2024 will challenge builders to devise protocols that utilize and enhance the Moca ID on-chain identity ecosystem while integrating Realm Points as integral assets.
MoonRealm Express Accelerator: AWS’s Strategic Investment
As a key technology enabler, AWS has committed to investing $1.1 million to support up to 500 eligible startups under the inaugural cohort. Through AWS Activate, startups will gain access to cloud resources, technical masterclasses, exposure to venture capital, go-to-market support, and more.
Web3 has the potential to revolutionize various sectors and it’s already driving innovation and growth on a global scale. We’re excited about supporting Web3 startups to boost their growth and innovation by leveraging the power of the AWS cloud in collaboration with Animoca Brands and Polygon Labs. Yaniv Donenfeld, AWS’s global head of Web3 GTM, expressed enthusiasm about supporting Web3 startups and leveraging AWS’s cloud capabilities
MoonRealm Express Accelerator: Polygon Labs’ Contribution
Polygon Labs will play a vital role by providing workshops to participating Web3 startups, equipping them with essential knowledge and skills. Additionally, Polygon Labs will contribute cash bounties for hackathons, and solution providers in the Polygon ecosystem will offer vouchers for services beneficial to these startups.
This is an exciting opportunity to further advance the Web3 ecosystem and drive innovation within it. Polygon Labs is fully committed to supporting this initiative as it embodies our value to see ecosystem participants collaborate to foster a thriving Web3 community and accelerate the growth of innovative projects. Polygon PoS has been a preferred chain for founders and we are excited to help a new generation to build the next big disruptive Web3 project. Ajay Ponna Venkatesha, SVP, Developer Studio at Polygon Labs, sees this collaboration as an exciting opportunity to advance the Web3 ecosystem
MoonRealm Express Accelerator: Strategic Vision for Mocaverse

The collaboration with AWS and Polygon Labs aims to provide ambitious builders with the tools, resources, and knowledge to contribute to and co-create on the major Web3 identity and loyalty platform.
With the first hackathon slated for early 2024, MoonRealm Express Accelerator aims to elevate Mocaverse as the premier platform for Web3 loyalty programs.
