The Meaning of Community
Community is everything in the world of Web3.. — This is more than just another sound off about how community is important to us. This time, we’ll try to help you understand why. — TL;DR. — As a member of our community, you are our favorite., You are even more important than you know., Our best people, ideas and resources come from your world., Thank you., — Web3 is a Small World - Not to sound like a broken record here*, but y’all are early to this party. *a record was a primitive but technologically impressive vinyl disc that was used in ancient history to store and reproduce sounds by scratching a needle across its spinning, grooved surface. Sometimes the needle or the record would malfunction, resulting in a small repeated portion of sound… kind of like a Tik Tok. Out of 7.75 billion people in the world, only about 17 million own a blockchain wallet, which is about 0.219%. Source If you feel like all you see is Web3, it’s only because that’s your world. For every person like you, there are over 450 more people who are still oblivious to the ways blockchain tech is beginning to transform their lives. — Web2 Doesn’t always Love Web3 - This is an important point that isn’t often considered by those asking themselves what’s taking so long with mass adoption. Without going into too much gritty detail… Large Web2 social media companies have worked hard to cultivate an internet where they’re the ones who benefit from your attention, your spending, and your support. They didn’t want you to discover that your time and energy can have real value, and that value can sometimes be converted into rewards. Basically, Web2 is afraid of Web3 because those calling the Web2 shots will lose profits as more consumers become empowered by Web3. They’re interested in keeping the lid on that Pandora’s Box as long as they can. This is why communities are so powerful (and so crucial) in the Web3 world. Our community proves that, even while mainstream media advertisers are often stacked against us, the word of player empowerment will always spread. That’s the easiest way to tell that we’re onto something huge here. — What is a Movement without a Community? - Have you ever noticed that people rarely rally behind and build communities in support of bad ideas? The ideas that tend to effectively grow communities are those that have real world-changing potential. Web3 is a huge paradigm shift that will leave no industry unaffected. It’s bringing power and control back to regular people everywhere. When we stop to consider the limitless future extensions of this empowerment, it’s easy to see why Gala Games has grown into one of the most solid and sincere communities on the planet. — Rewarding Our Community - At Gala, we believe that in the past, communities have rarely been cultivated and cared for as they deserve, especially in the gaming industry. This is why it’s so important to us to do things differently. We have an open Discord community in which people are encouraged to express themselves (for better or worse), and many members of the Gala teams are readily reachable there anytime. We hope you realize how strikingly rare this is for a gaming community of our size and scope. You still must be polite and follow the rules of course, but unpopular opinions are always welcome. We even have a special VIP lifetime membership club called Gala Gold. Membership gets you access to a smaller, more exclusive Discord area with easier access to the team, frequent leaks, AMA opportunities, and more. We’re not here today to talk about the multitude of benefits to Gala Gold membership, but trust us: Becoming a member is a good decision. We think that communities should be rewarded not only with attention and engagement, but also with literal rewards. As a member of the Gala community, you’ll usually find a plethora of opportunities to receive rewards for participating in the community. The earlier you’re here, the more grateful we are for your support of the Gala Ecosystem. You’ll also find that early adopters have even more reward opportunities than those who discover us later. If you haven’t gotten to know the Gala community yet, you’re still early. Join us in Discord! — Recent Articles - Benefits of Running a Founder’s Node: Token Rewards One Tree? How About Millions?

Freedom in Web3 Gaming
Let’s talk about one of Gala’s most important values: Freedom. — The decentralized gaming world we’re creating at Gala brings you a greater degree of freedom as a gamer than you have ever known. Your ability to list and sell digital assets on the secondary market is massively important, but what we’re working toward goes way beyond just the freedom to sell. Let’s explore what freedom means to Gala, in terms of our mission to empower the gamers of the world. We’re gamers ourselves, and freedom is why we’re building an entire Web3 gaming Ecosystem, instead of just a few games. — Owning vs Not Owning - Let’s say back in the nineties you purchased a cartridge video game, played it for a little while, then got tired of the game. You had a couple options. You could try to trade with a friend for one of their worn-out games. You could put it away in a box for future generations, accepting the fact that you’ll never see that 50–70 bucks again. You could even try your luck at the local pawn shop or second-hand store, where they’d give you pennies on the dollar for what they‘d’ turn right around and sell for 75% of retail as “lightly used.” Although it’s easy to look back on those days and remember the good times, gamers were a long, long way from truly owning their assets. This is evident in the near impossibility to get any future cash value out of your game “ownership.” Remember that in those days, to “own” a game simply meant that you had the ability to play it whenever you wanted, provided that you had the appropriate console, TV and accessories. Remember the old dime-a-dozen conversation with schoolmates? “Have you ever played Game X?” they would say. “Played it? I own it,” you’d reply. That was never real ownership. In fact, we had the wrong idea of ownership entirely. We never should have assumed that the ability to enjoy a game experience meant that we somehow “owned” that game. Until players could transfer and trade the items from the games (not the games themselves), they could never be truly empowered through ownership. It’s been a long road to gaming ownership, but now thanks to Web3 tech, the path ahead is much clearer than it was in the cartridge days. — What is Freedom? - We preach a lot about lofty conceptual ideas like freedom and empowerment, but what does it really mean to maximize gamers’ freedom? Freedom is about readiness. The more freedom you have, the more ready you are to go with the flow, pursue your goals, and achieve your dreams. Freedom is the thing that allows you to move forward unencumbered, to grow and change. The more freedom you have, the easier growth becomes.from the Oxford English Dictionary — Gala’s Freedoms - — Freedom to Play. — The earliest days of video games created a stigma that gaming was a non-value pastime at best, but we are overturning these generational preconceptions at last. People all over the world who were unwilling to give themselves time to play are now realizing that thanks to various incentives and rewards, playtime is back. Gaming is not just for kids anymore. In fact, it never was. We are playful creatures, and the idea that we are supposed to “grow out” of playing by our teenage years is not only incorrect, but rather heartbreaking. — Freedom to Play Free. — The games we are developing at Gala are AAA quality, built by some of the most experienced and skilled people in the industry. Still, many of these games will offer players a way to enjoy the game with no purchase obligations. How is this possible? It’s all part of the freedom of Web3. The more traditional mobile free to play, in-app purchases game model relies on a certain portion of free players enjoying the game to the point of upgrading their experience at their own cost. In a similar fashion, Gala can work with top developers to create extremely high quality games with options for free players to enjoy. Thanks to the early support of those who wish to own in-game items for in-development projects, we can create the highest quality free gaming experiences the world has ever seen.* *NOTE: Not all Gala Games will always be free to play. — Freedom to Own. — By building gaming ecosystems around player ownership of scarce in-game assets, we can level up the freedom of every single member of our community. They are no longer simply players and supporters; they now have the option to become owners. Being owners in this way does not mean that you literally “own” a portion of the company or the game. It simply means that you own what’s yours, and for the first time ever in video games. You earn it, it’s yours. You buy it, it’s yours. You work hard to upgrade it over dozens of campaigns, it’s yours. We’re pretty proud of this aspect of what we do. — Freedom to Earn Rewards. — How are we so confident in our games that we’re able to give you total freedom to own and sell your items on secondary markets? The root of that confidence is in the reward-based gaming economies we create. They are multi-layered webs of gamifications, incentives, and rewards that ensure your decision of whether to keep or list for sale will almost always be a tough one. There are lots of different perspectives from which you can experience and enjoy the Gala Games Ecosystem, and they come with different levels of potential rewards and unique opportunities. — Freedom to Sell. — Finally, the ability to sell your in-game items on peer-to-peer secondary markets lives at the core of the Web3 freedom we hope to provide the gamers of the world. You’ll find a game that you absolutely love (probably more than one) in the Gala Games Ecosystem. You’ll put your time and energy into following the development progress, honing your skills, and exploring your reward opportunities. You may even decide to purchase in-game property for that game. Once you have taken that leap into ownership, you have leveled up your freedom as a gamer. You may be able to use your purchased item for in-game advantages or to unlock rewards for playing. In some games, you can even allow free players to use your property (sharing some rewards with you, of course). Most importantly though, you can take your asset to a secondary marketplace like OpenSea and list it for sale whenever you want. The freedom to sell is always yours. Freedom to sell is freedom from commitment. Let’s say you buy an asset for your favorite Gala Game, then use it for a while to enhance your reward potential. Suppose a few months later a new game shows up that you’ve got to try, and you’re ready for something new. You can list your in-game item on the secondary marketplace, and if it sells, there’s your spending money to make some asset purchases for the new game.* *NOTE: Gala Games does not predict, control or speculate on secondary market pricing of in-game items. Listing items for sale never guarantees sale. With Gala, you’re absolutely free to game on your terms. We have dozens of AAA quality games in development, and every one of them has all the empowerment and freedom of Web3. We’re glad you’re here. Stick around. Play a while. — Recent Gala Games Articles - Building Gala’s Blockchain: Project GYRI GALA Smart Contract Audit Report Official Gala Collections on OpenSea Freedom in Web3 Gaming was originally published in Gala Games Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
Smart Contract Audit Report | GALA
Check out the results of our security contract audit from Anchain.AI for GALA, the core cryptocurrency of the Gala Games Ecosystem.. — With a recent series of articles (listed below), we have been publishing the official smart contract audit reports for the various tokens of Gala Games. Today, we’re delivering the report for GALA, the main crypto token of the Gala Games Ecosystem. Contract Audit — MTRM Contract Audit — TOWN Contract Audit — SILK — The Importance of Audits - With technology moving as rapidly as Web3, it’s important for smart contracts to be heavily scrutinized by professionals such as the ones we trust at Anchain.AI. While decentralization plays a huge role in the Web3 future we’re creating together, it also brings its own special risks. Blockchain transactions typically cannot be undone, and they allow users the freedom to move large quantities of assets quickly. Small vulnerabilities in a smart contract may not be discovered for years. Regardless of when they are discovered, even the smallest weakness can be devastating if exploited by a bad actor. At Gala, we understand the importance of security and the risks of developing in the Web3 space, so we take the time and energy necessary to build our smart contracts right. Then, tapping on the experts at Anchain, we confirm the contracts are as secure as possible. — GALA Contract Audit Report. — — Anchain.AI - Anchain is an AI-powered cybersecurity company enhancing blockchain security, risk, and compliance strategies. They specialize in thorough reviews and audits of smart contracts, blockchains and cryptocurrencies, serving hundreds of clients worldwide, and securing over $100 Billion in daily transaction volume. Basically, when Anchain puts their stamp of approval on a contract, the industry sees it as an undisputed sign of security and legitimacy. Said Dr. Victor Fang, CEO & Co-founder of AnChain.AI, of the auditing process, “Since 2018, the AnChain.AI has been relied upon by both traditional financial institutions, leading DeFi projects, and even government regulators to certify the security of some of the world’s highest-traffic smart contracts. Gala Games’ proactive approach to securing their smart contracts and commitment to protecting their users has been evident since our first conversation. Our auditing team’s efforts are made all the more effective by the Gala Games team’s meticulous approach to resolving even the most minor vulnerabilities discovered in the auditing process.” It’s already been a long and adventurous road for Gala Games, and with over a dozen Web3 games in development, we’re just getting started. Imagine your own world of gaming, where you have more power and control over your experiences than ever before. Gone are the days when you committed to a small number of games upon which you were left sitting once the enjoyment wore away. Web3 gives you the freedom to play it all, choose what to own, and strategically maximize your rewards. Finally, if the enjoyment ever wears away (unlikely), you can just list your in game assets on the secondary market and start with a whole new game. We’re building a Web3 home for all gamers, and we’re glad you’re here to share in the adventure with us! — Recent Articles - Benefits of Running a Founder’s Node: Token Rewards One Tree?

SILK Smart Contract Audit Report
Here are the results from Anchain.AI’s smart contract audit of the official reward token for Spider Tanks.. — In the world of Web3 entertainment, innovations are possible thanks to two separate, yet equally important groups: The crypto enthusiasts who think outside the box, and the communities who spread the word. These are their stories. Have you been paying attention to Spider Tanks? We hope so, because these are incredibly exciting times, especially for early adopters of the world’s first Web3 esport. First, the team dropped the Spider Tanks Lite Paper, with extensive plans and details for the game’s ecosystem. Shortly after, the Planetary Node Atlas was released, with all the details for Spider Tanks Planetary Nodes, the second Game Specific Node in the Gala Games Ecosystem.

TOWN Security Contract Audit Report
Here is the report from Anchain’s security audit of TOWN, the official reward token of Town Star.. — In the world of Web3 entertainment, innovations are possible thanks to two separate, yet equally important groups: The crypto enthusiasts who think outside the box, and the communities who spread the word. These are their stories. As a gaming platform, Gala Games is in the business of bringing you the highest quality and most empowering Web3 gaming experiences around. As a creator of Web3 reward-based ecosystems, we also understand the importance of security when it comes to the creation and deployment of smart contracts through which massive amounts of real money will flow. In THIS RECENT ARTICLE we shared Anchain’s newly published audit report for Materium, the official token of Mirandus that was recently listed on several crypto exchanges. Now, we’d like to share the audit report for TownCoin (TOWN), the official reward token of Town Star, which was completed in January of this year. — TOWN STAR AUDIT LINK. — townstar.com — Why are third party smart contract security audits so important? - Blockchain transactions create opportunities to move large quantities of assets very quickly. As implied by the name “smart contracts,” we must rely on these contracts to be so smart that they are unexploitable. There are some really smart people out there, many of whom do not share your ethical code, and some who always look for security flaws from which they can benefit. We cannot fault people for their innate drive to find ways in and to look for loopholes. What we can do is acknowledge this aspect of human nature, then make sure our systems and smart contracts are as secure as they can possibly be. By carefully scrutinizing our smart contracts with the help of an industry leading expert like Anchain, we can reduce not only a hacker’s ability to exploit them, but the likelihood that they’ll even try. — Anchain.AI - Anchain is an AI-powered cybersecurity company enhancing blockchain security, risk, and compliance strategies.

One Tree? How About Millions?
Gala works closely with OneTreePlanted to support shovel-ready projects in reforestation and restoration all over the world.. — In the world of Web3 entertainment, innovations are possible thanks to two separate, yet equally important groups: The crypto enthusiasts who think outside the box, and the communities who spread the word. These are their stories. Gala Games is heavily driven by the ideas of empowerment, abundance and sustainability. Player empowerment on the decentralized scale we’re building doesn’t come easy or cheap, and as fellow stewards of Earth, we are acutely aware of the impact our decisions have on the future of our planet and our people. When building a new world of Web3 entertainment, we must always remember our responsibility to care for the planet. While each of us is only here for a short time, the world will endure. The consequences of our current choices will drastically affect the lives of future generations.The Cake Squad is here to share lots of exciting behind-the-scenes news just like this! — Partnership that Grows - The most important way that Gala has given back to the Earth is by planting a tree for every single NFT sold. This is arranged through our partnership with the world’s leading reforestation charity, OneTreePlanted. When you purchase an NFT from the Gala platform, a single tree is contributed to one of our shovel-ready projects. It’s that simple. This time around, we’re taking it even further by letting you decide which projects we’ll support first! How about that for community in action? By working closely with OneTreePlanted, we are able to select real shovel-ready projects, allocating our support exactly and directly where it is needed. Like any tree, our partnership with OneTreePlanted will continue to grow, but we’ve already made an incredible start. Take a look at all the projects we have already supported with thousands of new trees. — 2021 - — Philippines — Mangrove Reforestation. — Mangroves are in rapid decline in many parts of the world, due to climate change. It’s likely that we’ll see more and more mangrove restoration projects. Good thing we’re ready to mobilize Gala’s community in local areas to help face this challenge! — South Africa — Cape Town. — — Philippines — Indiginous Bamboo Reforestation. — — Andes — High Andes Polylepis Project. — This project is part of a multi-year, multi-partner initiative to restore 1 million hectares of Polylepis ecosystems throughout the high Andes. Polylepis forests are extremly important as they are a major source of South America’s water system including the Amazon basin. — India — Sundarban Mangrove Project. — Hastened degradation of the Sandarban ecosystem, consisting of over 100 Indian islands, has been catastrophic for mangrove cover, which is relied upon for the sustainability of the entire ecosystem. — British Columbia — Yunesit’in Fire Guard Rehabilitation. — — British Columbia — Old Growth management areas. — These efforts are gradually restoring the massive damaged areas from the 2017 Plateau wildfire, which burned a total of over 12,000 square kilometers in British Columbia. These long-term restoration efforts are just as important as new plantings; often even more so. — 2022 - — Thailand — Baan Ba Community Reforestation Program. — — Uganda — Albertine Rift. — The Albertine Rift is the western branch of the East African Rift, covering parts of Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania. It extends from the northern end of Lake Albert to the southern end of Lake Tanganyika. — Iceland — Dragon’s Nest Forest. — This is a more rare afforestation project, in which a new forest is begun in an effort to renew healthy farmland or grazing land. — Endless Possibilities - Look for more fruit of Gala’s OneTreePlanted partnership coming in the near future, including ways that you may be able to get involved in your local area. With the rate at which the Gala Ecosystem has grown, we have our sustainability work cut out for us, and working with OneTreePlanted is only the beginning. While we work out the details of future projects and initiatives, we will continue to donate to OneTreePlanted by contributing a one tree for every NFT sold on the Gala platform. — #GrowWithGala - Remember that everything grows. The simplest and most effective thing you can do to support this effort is to plant a tree yourself. The Cake Squad would like to challenge everyone in the Gala community to not only plant a tree locally, but monitor and record its progress from time to time to share with the community. Imagine years from now. There are hundreds of games on the Gala Games platform and players throughout the world are empowered like never before with ownership and rewards. Wouldn’t it be nice to see photographic and literal reminders that our efforts bear fruit? The small things we do today to protect and secure the planet will have profound and lasting effects greater than we could imagine. — To participate…. — Plant a tree — Please don’t break any local laws to do this., Take a picture where you planted your tree., Share on social media with #GrowWithGala., Visit your tree later when it has grown., — How You can Help - Here’s where you can really get your hands dirty, without literally getting your hands dirty. The reason we love OneTreePlanted is they give money directly to specific projects where trees are needed. In the interest of even greater transparency and community inclusion, we thought it would be fun to involve everyone in the selection of projects for Gala’s next donation. Thanks to the magnitude of your ongoing donations, we are able to truly make a difference, checking off these shovel-ready projects one by one. Visit the one-tree-planted channel in Discord to vote for projects you’d like to support with this round of tree planting. We have laid them out as individual posts, and sheer numbers of emoji reactions on each post will be used to determine the order in which shovel-ready projects are funded. Voting will close at the end of this week, so get those emoji fingers ready! Thanks for all your support. Let’s make the world a better place in as many ways as we can! — Recent Cake Articles - — Clap, Clap, Clap Your Hands. — — New Exchange Listings. — — Benefits of Running a Founder’s Node: Token Rewards. — — Gala on OpenSea. — Remember that when you clap for Gala, Medium shows our content to even more of their readers!

Here are the latest updates from the development team working on Gala’s blockchain, Project GYRI. — Project GYRI is the code name for one of Gala’s most prized projects: The creation of a games-first layer 1 blockchain, built for Web3 entertainment. As Gala’s new blockchain moves steadily toward full launch, the team behind it would like to update the community on the latest progress. We hope you can share in the excitement of this moment with us by fully understanding its significance for the future of the Gala Ecosystem. Let’s talk Chain! A lot has happened this year and we’re entering a new era for Gala’s chain. In the spring we performed a number of Town Crush test releases with the chain integrated in the backend. May Mayhem launched Project GYRI’s first involvement in a competition and resulted in some tough but necessary learnings. Now, games are queued up to have our chain integrated throughout the rest of the year on a production network! — Town Crush - Warren Marshall’s creation of a fun, lightweight match-3 game coincided perfectly with our need to test out game integration. We were able to try out a number of different types of functionality and contract configurations. We distributed Project GYRI-native Fungible Tokens and NFTs, fulfilled token purchases from the Gala platform, and even used Project GYRI tokens as payment in-game on the assets contract. Our Town Crush game contract proved out creating and validating match stats and results, player profile stats for measuring progress, and in-game purchasing of profile inventory items. All in all, it was a great exercise of many Project GYRI features. Of course, when you’re testing and pushing the limits of what your tech can do, you expect to run into problems. We definitely hit some snags during the May Mayhem competition. Although there wasn’t more traffic than expected, our systems (on test infrastructure) did not hold up to the onslaught of rabid Crushers. Our team was together in-person working on getting things shored up for the competition but ultimately realized that we needed to take a step back. This led to us taking extra time to build out robust analytics and performance testing apparatus and allowed us to diagnose the (quite unexpected) source of the problem. Now we can be much more confident in our infrastructure and better able to quickly find the source of any bottlenecks or other trouble. Once we felt confident in these upgrades, we were able to re-release the competition in June and reward over 5000 players with over $400,000 in GALA prizes. — Infrastructure Improvements - Along the way we’ve been continuously improving our infrastructure. During this testing phase the Project GYRI network has been running on docker containers. We now have the ability to run our network in Kubernetes. This aligns with the way workloads are run on Nodes and will pave the way for our network to eventually be hosted on them. It’s a huge step toward our goals of increasing decentralization and getting Node operators involved in running the chain. — Core Functionality - From a bit more technical perspective, we’ve continued to beef up the core functionality. For us this means reviewing and refactoring existing utilities, making sure our code is readable and efficient, and most importantly secure. This is all part of moving from a testing and proving stage to a production-ready phase. — Bridging - A critical part of Project GYRI being ready for production is bridging. It’s important that players can safely and simply move tokens between Project GYRI and other networks. Bridge work is ongoing and will allow players to take tokens from the Ethereum network to Project GYRI and back. It’s no secret that bridges have been targeted and exploited to the detriment of ecosystems and communities so we’re spending a lot of time and effort, getting third party audits and really focusing on making sure bridged assets are safe. — What’s Next? - Of course we’ll continue to improve infrastructure and core features, tightening bolts, greasing wheels and so on. But the really fun part is already in progress — Game Integration. You may have already heard that Spider Tanks has integrated a Project GYRI contract and we’re working closely together to make sure that works great and enables some of the cool features we’ve all been anticipating. Town Crush is going from proof of concept to full blown product so there’ll be work to do to enhance the contract and add features there too. In addition, more games have started the process of designing their integration strategies and I for one can’t wait! Thanks to the Project GYRI team for offering this extensive progress update to the community.

Benefits of Running a Founder’s Node: Token Rewards
Founder’s Node operators whose Nodes were active during the recent Mirandus playtest have now received MTRM.. — In the world of Web3 entertainment, innovations are possible thanks to two separate, yet equally important groups: The crypto enthusiasts who think outside the box, and the communities who spread the word. These are their stories. Recently, there was a Mirandus playtest in which all Exemplar owners could experience the latest developments in the Web3 MMO. Everyone who was able to destroy at least one goblin in that playtest received some Materium (MTRM) as a reward. The goblin-slaying players weren’t the only ones to receive MTRM rewards. When Gala Games mints and distributes tokens, a percentage of those tokens is almost always distributed to active Founder’s Node operators as well. Of course there can be exceptions, and the percentage of tokens allocated to Founder’s Node operators can vary. — The Tokens of Gala Games - — GALA. — GALA is the core cryptocurrency of the Gala Games Ecosystem. It is distributed to operators of active Founder’s Nodes on a daily basis, and listed on dozens of crypto exchanges worldwide. Each year, the amount of GALA distributed to Founder’s Node operators is halved, gradually reducing the amount of new GALA introduced into the circulating supply. — Reward Tokens. — Each Gala game also brings its own economy with its own cryptocurrency, such as Town Star’s TOWN, Mirandus’ MTRM and Spider Tanks’ SILK. These tokens are distributed as rewards for Web3 gaming, according to the details of the various reward ecosystems. Whenever these tokens are minted and distributed as rewards, a portion is also distributed to operators of active Founder’s Nodes. — In-Game Items. — Many of Gala’s in-game items are also blockchain-backed tokens. Similarly to the reward tokens for each individual game, a portion of minted in-game items is always allocated to the operators of active Founder’s Nodes. — Distribution in Action - Yesterday, Materium was distributed to a group of Founder’s Node operators. The following is a broken down explanation of how and why this MTRM distribution took place. First, Exemplar owners participated in the playtest, slaying goblins to their hearts’ content. Once the playtest ended, the total quantity of MTRM to be distributed was divided among those players who completed the challenge. Next, the MTRM was distributed to the players, following completion of the playtest. Finally, all Founder’s Node operators whose Nodes met their activity requirements on the day the playtest MTRM was distributed to players received their portion of MTRM. In this case, the MTRM allocated for Founder’s Nodes was 20 MTRM per Founder’s Node. — Gala Games Founder’s Nodes - A small number of Gala Games Founder’s Node licenses are still available until the total supply of 50,000 has been reached. Founder’s Nodes live at the core of Gala’s decentralized network of Web3 games. By purchasing a license, members of the Gala community can contribute computing resources from their home PCs to earn rewards. Operating a Founder’s Node is like getting your home PC a lifetime job for the Gala Games Ecosystem. You provide the computing resources, and in turn you receive a share of the rewards. The amount of GALA distributed to active Founder’s Node operators is reduced by 50% each year (halved). As the GALA distribution is gradually reduced over time, more and more games will be added to the growing Gala Games platform. To learn more about Founder’s Nodes, visit THIS SUPPORT ARTICLE. — Let’s Talk About It - Join us in Discord if you’d like to know more about how owning a license and operating a Founder’s Node supports the Gala Games Ecosystem and earns rewards. We’ve got people from all over the world, so it’s basically a 24/7 party in the Gala Games Discord. See you there! — Gala Games Discord community. — — Gala Games on OpenSea. — — Gala Games platform. — If you clap 50 times on this article, Medium will show it to even more people. Talk about a great way to show your Gala support! — 👏👏👏👇👇👇 - Benefits of Running a Founder’s Node: Token Rewards was originally published in Gala Games Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

|Technical Analysis: THETA, GALA, and SAND Lead Weekend Crypto Bears
THETA, GALA, and SAND were some of Saturday's biggest cryptocurrency casualties, as an onslaught of bearish pressure pushed prices lower. This came whilst market bulls were few and far between to begin the weekend.
As of writing, DOGE and LUNA were both marginally higher, however it was XRP that made the most gains within the crypto top 100 this Saturday.
Despite the majority of cryptocurrencies remaining in red, XRP is up nearly 6% as of writing, following two days of strong bullish sentiment.
XRP/USD rose to an intraday high of $0.8237 on Saturday, following a low of $0.7603 during the session prior.
The move came as prices extended their climb from support at $0.7550, and they now seem to be heading for a resistance level near $0.8505.
Despite XRP being potentially set for many gains, this could be thwarted by the 58 level on the 14-day RSI, which appears to be a point of uncertainty.
Should prices manage to reach resistance, however, history has shown that a significant amount of bearish activity takes place at said level.
GALA and the sandbox were some of the biggest cryptos to fall on Saturday, as the red wave was truly present to start the weekend.
However, the price of THETA fell for a third straight session, and now sits below its recent support level of $3.25.
THETA/USD fell to an intraday low of $3.09 during today's session, and is down close to 5% as of writing.
Prices fell by almost 10% earlier today. However, following t...
|Technical Analysis: GALA Climbs 16%, Qtum Leads Tuesday's Bulls
GALA was one of Tuesday's big gainers, as cryptocurrency markets were once again trending upwards. Overall, the cryptocurrency market capitalization is around 4% higher as of writing.
On Tuesday, crypto markets were green across the board, as traders once again re-entered the marketplace following the uncertainty caused by the tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
Gala (GALA) was one of these bulls, climbing by as much as 16% earlier in the session, however it was qtum (QTUM) which led today's gainers.
QTUM/USD, which was trading at a low of $6.33 on Monday, climbed to an intraday high of $8.15 earlier today.
Today's move came as the price of QTUM rallied from support of $6.35, all the way towards resistance of $7.90 and beyond.
However, as prices hit the recent ceiling, profit-takers began to liquidate their positions, which led to QTUM falling from its high.
This came as price strength also found some resistance, with the 14-day RSI hitting its ceiling of 56, an area which has acted as a point of uncertainty in the past.
Some bulls are likely to still remain in QTUM/USD, in hopes that a breakout of this resistance will take prices above $9.
As the majority of the crypto top 100 was trading higher on Tuesday, finding a bear was no mean feat.
Tuesday's biggest loser, relatively speaking, was symbol (XYM), which fell by close to 0.70% on the day.
The price of XYM/USD, which hit a high of $0.1782 yesterday, fell to an intraday low of $0.1725...
|Technical Analysis: Gala Jumps 37% Higher, as Crypto Bulls Return
During the weekend, when bitcoin rose to a two-week high, it was Gala that stole the show after climbing 37%. Bulls returned to action on Saturday, as the global crypto market capitalization was around 8% higher.
Following a huge week of news in the gaming and crypto space, it was only a matter of time till traders turned their attentions to gala (GALA).
Crypto bulls flocked to GALA to start the weekend, pushing prices of the gaming-based blockchain almost 40% higher
GALA/USD, rose to an intraday high of $0.2668, following its low of $0.1865 during yesterday's session.
Today's move has come just as the price of GALA broke out of its 2-week resistance level of $0.2115, which has been held since January 21.
As seen from the chart, this rally led to two consecutive breakouts of recent ceilings in the 14-day RSI, firstly the 35 level, followed by 41.
Overall, GALA is significantly below its ATH of $0.8415, which was established on November 26, despite this, some still have hopes of this eventually reaching $1.
Similar to yesterday, there were not many bears at the start of the weekend , with around five of the top 100 cryptocurrencies marginally falling.
However, the two biggest to remain red today were quant (QNT) and maker (MKR), with QNT stealing the honor of biggest loser on Saturday.
Following four consecutive sessions of rallies to start the week, QNT/USD was down by almost 5% as of writing, hitting an intraday low of $130.77 in the proce...
