What is GALA token?

GALA is the utility token of Gala Games, which aims to give players control over their in-game assets using blockchain technology.

The GALA token can be used in any of the GALA Games. GALA can be used to purchase in-game items, participate in the management of games, and earn money by running a node to secure the Gala network and validate transactions.

The gala (GALA) token runs on Ethereum and the Binance Smart Chain. As well as peer-to-peer transactions, it is rewarded to the nodes that power the Gala ecosystem. Gala Games has built a blockchain network powered by GALA coins in order to accomplish its stated purpose. The system is based on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain network, and users have a complete choice over how to spend GALA tokens, which are transferable between users.

The GALA cryptocurrency was launched in September 2020 at $0.001, and for the first three months struggled to get past its launch price. On 17 September 2021, GALA coin managed to break past the $0.1 barrier. Since then, GALA price kept going up and reached its all-time high of $0.83 on 26 November 2021.
