Epic, the North Carolina-based video game and software developer and publisher known for titles such as Unreal and Fortnite and its battle with Apple over in-app fees, is to bring Gala Games’s Grit, described as “the first-ever Web 3.0 and NFT game”, to its Epic Games Store.

25 February 2022: GALA surges by 20% as Gala Network reveals details of new blockchain

Gala Games’ description of the network’s upcoming new blockchain as a ‘game-first blockchain’ sparked positive sentiment among investors with GALA price skyrocketing by 20% to around $0.25, putting it among the top crypto gainers on Friday, 25 February.

“Gala’s chain is the first blockchain developed by game developers specifically for the requirements faced in-game, but it also lends itself beautifully to ideas like Listen-to-Earn, Watch-to-Earn and more,” said the network.

The GALA token also witnessed an increasing transactions volume, despite low volumes witnessed by lead cryptos during the Friday trading session. At the time of writing, GALA reported a trading volume 7.2% higher in the last 24 hours with a market cap of $1.7bn (£1.3bn).

“Gala’s chain will increase efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and lower both cost and time of transactions in [the] Gala ecosystem. It will allow new functions and new opportunities for the Gala World to scale. It will enhance security for our players and make it easier for developers to interact with our Ecosystem’s assets,” said the network.

Gala blockchain test phase

The network also announced that its community-wide test program, a pilot play-to-earn game with no-value tokens, will be launched in the forthcoming weeks, although it did not reveal the exact timing of the launch of the blockchain. The test phase will help the network gather information from the community and fix potential bugs.

“We cannot yet announce an exact time frame or roadmap for the migration. [However] We’re very close to releasing Project GYRI, in the form of a community-wide playtest for a new game. This Town Star-themed game has been created entirely to prove the efficacy of Gala’s blockchain.”

“When testing Project GYRI, users will be playing to earn a temporary new token called TEST that will exist on the Project GYRI test net. It will have no real value and it will not be transferable,” explained the network.

A ‘permissioned decentralised blockchain’

Gala Games said its new blockchain, built for the Gala Ecosystem, will be become decentralised over time, marking the distance from the “not decentralised” Ethereum. The network also anticipated that the blockchain will be a permissioned one and will work with Node operators rather than operating with Proof-of-Work or Proof-of-Stake protocols.

The operators will ultimately empower NFT owners to get rewards by pairing their track with a Player Node in the Gala Music Listen-to-Earn economy.

“Gala blockchain was designed to leave behind the most unnecessary and inconvenient aspects of Ethereum while embracing the quintessential foundations upon which the player empowering vision of Gala Games is built,” said the network.

Moreover, “Gala’s chain will begin its existence as a permissioned blockchain, meaning that the game developers and platform curators of Gala Games will agree on any changes to the blockchain”.

“As the various functions of Gala’s chain are refined and proven in action, they will be gradually delegated to Node operators, coinciding with the increased workload expectations outlined in the Gala Games Nodemap”.

21 February 2022: Gala Games set to launch its own ‘games-first’ blockchain

Gala Games Ecosystem has announced the launch of Gala’s own ‘games-first’ blockchain.

The network said the blockchain, which will power the Galaverse, aims to provide users with faster transactions, lower network fees and lower minting costs, while reducing its impact on the environment, and allowing interoperability throughout the Gala World and transferability to and from Ethereum.

While the final and official name of Gala’s chain is not yet determined, the network chose to call the initial stages of the launch ‘Project GYRI’, after the folds or ridges in the cerebral cortex of the human brain.

The network said it is going to launch a fun community-wide test to introduce the new blockchain, a temporary play-to-earn game event, within the next few weeks.

“This temporary game will offer an excellent demonstration of how Project GYRI will operate. Players will be able to play-to-earn a token called TEST, then spend their TEST on a few different in-game upgrades and bonuses. TEST cannot be transferred or sold anywhere. There are no sales or real money involved in this test, but it should be both fun and enlightening for everyone involved,” said the network.

A new GALA token?

The development, which comes as Gala expands into music ‘and beyond’ and will see GALA rewards extended to listeners, supporters, artists, fans adn collectors, has received positive feedback from the community. However, it has cast doubt on the launch of a new Gala token alongside the blockchain and sparked investor fear over GALA, the current Gala Games coin that is held on the Ethereum blockchain.

But according to Gala Games, users “will have the option to lock their assets into the Ethereum blockchain, in most cases, but they won’t be as readily usable within the gaming platform”.

Despite recovering in the last few hours, soon after the announcement the GALA price fell from a $0.2953 level to a $0.2464 resistance, with sales further exacerbated by some profit-taking after the positive reaction to the Galaverse announcement.

At the time of writing, GALA is trading up by 2.4% at $0.2593 with a trading volume of $1.3bn (£955m), higher by 33% in the last 24 hours, with a market cap of $1.8bn.
