By giving players ownership and control over games Gala games is doing something completely new in the space. Their mission statement is to ‘make blockchain games that you actually want to play’. Hinting at the many blockchain games that purely revolve at somehow integrating NFT’s. A lot of projects do not focus on delivering a quality gaming experience. Gala is not developing a single game, instead they are they are developing many exciting games. These games place fun first and the blockchain in the background, mainly for its utility. Finally allowing players to actually own and trade their in-game assets and take ownership of the development of their games. The native GALA token connects all of these Gala games.
How does it work?
By giving players the ability to own non-fungible-tokens or NFT’s for the in-game items which they can trade with other players. Players can also participate in the development of games by using governance tokens and voting within the Gala games ecosystem. Even further, the Nodes voting system allows for players to decide on which games Gala games will develop. Giving players control of not only their games and in-game assets, but the entire eco-system and direction of the gaming company. It’s truly a revolutionary way of democratizing the gaming industry.

What is P2E?
P2E stand for play-to-earn. This is a concept which makes it possible to earn cryptocurrency by playing blockchain games. Blockchain technology allows for the minting in-game items on the blockchain and giving players ownership of their avatars, skins & items. These items can then be traded and transferred between players. Usually using the native token of the game or eco-system. Because these tokens are normally also listed on centralized or decentralized exchanges it connects real-world finance to the in-game economy.
Is Gala games building a metaverse?
To answer this question we would first need to define a metaverse. A metaverse is a digital world connecting people around the world through the internet. Ideally this would include VR headsets making this world almost indistinguishable from the real world. In other words, what would make an ideal metaverse is if in the future there would be a gateway in between these different digital worlds uniting all metaverses. Gala games is not exactly building a Metaverse like Sandbox or Decentraland is doing. Instead they are releasing multiple high quality games and incorporating blockchain technology into these games. In game assets have real world value and in-game currency also has real world value. Gala games is doing their best in making blockchain games popular and their token is profiting from every game they build.
Gala Games price
At the time of writing GALA had a nice correction of 80% after it’s initial metaverse pump of 1000% gain back in november. With the recent pump in overall crypto prices it has done very well. It has outperformed most other metaverse and P2E projects with a similar market cap with an almost 100% pump after this dip. Will we see bullish continuation to the upside from this level? We can only guess that this depends on the broader crypto market. Above all Captain Inu will be watching these metaverse and P2E tokens very closely.
