What is Gala?
The Venn diagram covering people into crypto and people into gaming is probably very close to being a circle, so Gala Games and its project to unite the 2 worlds make sense. The GALA coin is the utility token for the Gala Games ecosystem: at present it’s used for in-game purchases of both conventional items and NFTS in Town Star, a mobile game similar to FarmVille. Gala boasts the involvement of Eric Schiermeyer, one of the co-founders of casual gaming giant Zynga – which created FarmVille – so there’s some deep experience to draw on. The USP is that, unlike the traditional model, in-game assets encoded as NFTs means players truly own what they buy inside the game, rather than having them restricted to the original game’s platform. According to VentureBeat.com, the company is planning to launch Mirandus, a more sophisticated role-playing game, later in the year. This is likely to offer the same system for in-game purchases.
Gala (GALA) is in the top 1,000 cryptocurrencies in the world by market cap, valued at $4,782,949,465. The current price of Gala is $0.634867, which is 2.598% higher than yesterday.

What to consider when buying GalaGiven there are an estimated 2.8 billion gamers around the world, creating a crypto specifically aimed at them would seem a no-brainer – especially given their enjoyment of both collecting digital items and enthusiastic spending their disposable income on doing so. That said, there are still a few things to think about before you invest:
- After a huge spike in interest following its March 2021 launch, at the time of writing (22 July 2021) the price hasn’t come close to its early boom times, as it currently hovers at about a third of its peak.
- One game is currently live and the company claims 7 more are in development, but there is no guarantee all of them will launch.
- GALA is available at Uniswap, Bitrue, DigiFinex, Polyient DEX, Hotbit, MXC, SushiSwap, and BitMart.
- Pooled staking rewards are, at the time of writing, not available. However, daily rewards and random NFT drops are available in return for running a node on the network. The price of these nodes increases for every 100 sold, with the pool of rewards on offer becoming diluted in proportion. The number of nodes is capped at 50,000, with the final 100 set to be priced at a hefty USD$33,000.
- You can’t buy GALA directly with fiat cash – you’ll have to convert to ETH first.
- Bear in mind that while you can buy NFTs within the Gala Games ecosystem, they are distinct from the GALA cryptocurrency.
