Gala Games is a new gaming platform that allows players to earn crypto and non-fungible tokens by playing video games. As users participate in gaming tournaments and play games available through the Gala platform, they are rewarded with blockchain-based GALA tokens.

GALA is an ERC-20 token, which means that it primarily runs using the Ethereum network. Users not only earn GALA by playing games but also gain access to exclusive digital assets and NFTs as rewards. While options to buy and sell GALA are limited for players in the United States, Gala helps players overcome the challenge of taking ownership of items and achievements they own in-game.

How Does Gala Games Work?

Unlike most video games, which are based around a central server, ownership of Gala Games is shared by users and owners of the GALA token. Owners who have enough GALA tokens in their possession can provide computing and coding resources by creating a node. Node operators put up their GALA holdings in exchange for the power to validate transactions and generate user activity. 

In exchange, node operators have the power to vote on community proposals in accordance with their node’s history and the total number of GALA tokens they have. This decentralized, blockchain-based approach comes with a number of benefits for both users and node operators, including increased anonymity and a decreased chance of hacking or improper use of customer payment data.

What Types of Games Does Gala Have?

Gala Games produces its video games in-house as well as in partnership with artistic studios like Ember Entertainment and Certain Affinity. Some of Gala Games’ most popular offerings include the following:

  • Town Star: Town Star is one of Gala Games’ first offerings, and is a farming and ranching simulator. In Town Star, players compete using limited resources to create a sustainable farm plan, with those creating the most crops and other in-game items receiving a share of a weekly GALA pool. Players who prefer a less competitive experience can complete daily challenges to earn in-game rewards and exclusive NFTs. To date, more than 600 million people have played Town Star.
  • Spider Tanks: Spider Tanks is a player-versus-player skill game that allows users to battle using armored tanks and a variety of map locations. Much like Town Star, players can compete in tournaments and earn GALA tokens based on their performance.
  • Superior: Superior is a third-person shooter game that takes place in a fantasy realm. Superior was recently released to the Steam marketplace.

In addition to these active titles, Gala Games has several additional titles in development. Some upcoming releases include a survival-based first-person shooter called “Last Expedition” and a turn-based RPG that will be compatible with iPhone and Android devices.

Final Thoughts 

Investors who would like to begin earning GALA can sign up for an account on the company’s web application. While investing in a reasonable amount of cryptocurrency can be a fun and exciting way to enter the sphere without spending thousands, investors should be cautious and remember that cryptocurrencies are exceptionally volatile investments with no guarantees of return.
