What is Gala?
Gala (GALA) is an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that powers Gala Games. It is a platform that aims to revolutionize the gaming industry by giving players back control over their games.
History of Gala
Founded by Eric Schiermeyer (the co-founder of Zynga and gaming legend), Wright Thurston (one of the first major miners in the cryptocurrency space), and Michael McCarthy (the Creative Director behind viral gaming hits such as Farmville 2), Gala Games was launched in 2020 to redefine both the gaming and blockchain spaces.
The first game released by Gala Games, Town Star, is a deceptively simple looking but incredibly deep farming simulation in which users build a farm to compete in weekly competitions. At various places, NFTs can be used in the game to provide bonuses but are not required to play, have fun, or compete. Mirandus, the MMORPG/Adventure Simulator currently under development by Gala Games is working to completely redefine both the game development pipeline, as well as the gameplay model by putting the power in the hands of the players and giving them ultimate control over the in-game economy.
What is Gala (GALA) used for?
The decentralized Gala Games ecosystem aspires to blow the doors wide open and give players back the control they deserve. Through decentralization, players not only own their in-games items, but they have a voice in how the Gala Games roadmap develops. Players and node owners are enlisted via distributed voting mechanisms to help determine what games should be added to the platform or what should be funded by the decentralized Gala Games ecosystem.
The GALA token is the digital utility token of the Gala Games ecosystem. It is cryptographically secured and native to the Gala Games ecosystem. GALA is transferable between users, and they have full control over how to use it. GALA powers the Gala Games Ecosystem.
How does Gala (GALA) work?
Gala Games is somewhat similar to the Steam store or GOG, in that it features a wide variety of games for users to pick and play. However, unlike these stores, all games are 100% free-to-play and are accessed over the blockchain through a decentralized application (DApp)
