How do I find the best places to buy GALA?

Cryptocurrency exchanges offer similar services, but differ in a few key ways – mainly fees, the range of cryptos available and payment methods. You can use our table to compare the features of popular cryptocurrency exchanges available in South Africa to help you choose the one that's right for you.

Some other factors you may want to consider are customer support, user reviews, ease of use and whether or not the exchange is registered with a local regulator. This information can be found by clicking on the exchange name in the table which will take you to its review page.

What will I need to buy GALA?

To create an account on any cryptocurrency exchange you will need an email address. Some exchanges may also ask for a phone number and photo ID, so it's a good idea to have those ready.

An increasing number of cryptocurrency exchanges will ask to verify your identity before you can deposit funds and start trading GALA.

  • This process is known as Know Your Customer (KYC) and usually requires photo ID and a webcam or smartphone. You may also need to prove your address by uploading a copy of a recent bank statement or utility bill.
  • Some exchanges allow you to deposit and trade cryptocurrencies without passing KYC, but they will not allow you to transfer local currency from your bank account. So if you are planning on purchasing GALA with your local currency then you will need to pass KYC.
  • Once you have verified your identity, it is a good idea to enable 2-factor authentication (2FA) before depositing any funds. This will increase the security of your account and help keep your funds safe.

What are the best ways to buy GALA?

Once you've created an account, you will need to deposit funds to buy GALA with. You can either deposit local currency from a bank account or credit card, or transfer cryptocurrency from another exchange or wallet. Here are some popular ways to buy GALA:

  • Bank account: Transfers from local bank accounts are usually free, but you will need to double-check this with the exchange you choose – this information can be found in our table by clicking on 'view details'.
  • Credit or debit card: Linking a card to your account is another convenient way to top up your account, but be aware that it usually attracts an additional fee. An advantage, though, is that you can use a card to make instant purchases or set up a recurring purchase.
  • Cryptocurrency: You can usually purchase GALA by trading it for another cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or a stablecoin. This varies between exchanges though, so you will need to search for GALA on the spot market to see what cryptocurrencies it can be traded for.

What is the easiest way to buy GALA?

The easiest way to buy GALA is by placing an 'instant buy' order to purchase it for a fixed price but not all crypto exchanges offer this feature.

Alternatively, you can open a trade on the spot market which allows you to set your own price – this is the most common way to purchase cryptocurrency. Using the instant buy feature is straightforward but typically more expensive than using the spot market.

Before buying GALA, you may want to check the market conditions. To help you decide if now is the right time to buy, you can take a look at our Analysis tools to get an idea of how the price of GALA has been performing recently.

Best GALA wallets to store your GALA

You can keep your GALA on the exchange you purchased it on, or move it to a personal wallet:

  • Some people like to use their own wallets to guarantee total ownership over their assets, or to use them with other applications like DeFi services.
  • Hardware wallets are typically considered to be the safest type of cryptocurrency wallet, as they use a physical device to enhance security in a number of ways. You can take a look at some of our top hardware wallet picks for self-custody of your GALA below.

Is GALA a good investment?

Given there are billions of 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 of 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, the price took several months to match its early boom times. However, at the time of writing (29 November 2021) GALA has reached $0.66.
  • Two games are currently live and the company claims several more are in development, but there is no guarantee all of them will launch.
  • GALA is available at Coinbase Pro, Crypto.com, 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.
  • Buying GALA directly with fiat cash is possible via Coinbase Pro and HitBTC.
  • Bear in mind that while you can buy NFTs within the Gala Games ecosystem, they are distinct from the GALA cryptocurrency.
