What is GALA Token?
GALA is an Ethereum token that powers Gala Games, a platform for blockchain gaming. GALA is used as the medium of exchange between Gala Games participants. For example, it can be used to pay for in-game items.
The GALA token runs on Ethereum and the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) blockchain. The network is secured by its own set of nodes called Founder’s Nodes. Gala Games specifies a maximum of 50,000 Founder’s Nodes that validate in-game transactions and secure the network.
Nodes can also vote about which games are released to the Gala Games platform. You can operate a node by purchasing an account and running it on your computer. GALA are rewarded to node operators according to a point system. Running a node for a minimum of six hours in a cycle scores 1 point and referrals running nodes for at least six hours scores 0.1 points. At the time of distribution, all of the points are added up and the GALA is split between these points.
What is Gala Gaming?
Gala Games aims to take the gaming industry in a different direction by giving players back control over their games. Gala Games mission is to make “blockchain games you’ll actually want to play.” The project wants to change the fact that players can spend hundreds of dollars on in-game assets, and countless hours spent playing the game, which could be taken away from them with the click of a button. It plans to reintroduce creative thinking into games by giving players control of the games and in-game assets with the help of blockchain technology.
Players can own non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and influence the governance of games within the Gala Games ecosystem. The Founder’s Nodes voting mechanism allows players to influence what games Gala should develop and what games should get funding. Besides buying NFTs for specific games, Gala Games also utilizes GALA – its own utility token. So far, Gala Games has released one playable game – Town Star and an NFT collectible series – VOX. It plans to release more games in the future, such as a fantasy RPG game, a sci-fi strategy game and a tower defense game.
Since launching in 2019, Gala Games has grown to 1.3 million monthly active users, and 26,000 NFTs have been sold, with the most expensive piece valued at $3 million.
