Thanks You To The A&Q Community For Participating In Ask Me Anything ( AMA ) With Gala Games On June 30th, 2021. This Guest Star Jason Brink ( Chief Marketing Officer )

First segment : Introduce

  • Questions :

Please Introduce your self and tell us about Gala Games and what makes you unique in the gaming industry?

EXCELLENT QUESTION! This is SUPER critical! Firstly, it is important to recognize that Gala Games isn’t a “blockchain game company” it is a mass-driven “game company that uses blockchain.” This is a hugely important distinction because it fundamentally changes how we look at things. Blockchain projects tend to measure users in the thousands… There are VERY few blockchain projects with more than a few thousand active users.

However...there are 2.4 BILLION gamers around the world...and it is THESE people we are working to attract. We aren’t sitting around talking about how cool blockchain is...we are building games first and innovating, while finding ways to use blockchain as a tool to serve these gamers. As such, we want to see users in the hundreds of millions, not the thousands. In order to do that, we have to build amazing GAMES first...our projects aren’t tech demos to prove that blockchain is usable, but rather top-tier games that use blockchain as an underlying technology.

Second segment : Questions from AMA hosts

  • Questions 1 :

Can you tell us any about how Gala Games have impacted people positively around the world?

People can supplement their income through gaming. There are quite a few members that have told us directly that they have been able to buy their very first home in the country that they live in by playing Town Star. I think this is an absolutely epic expression of our mission.

  • Questions 2 :

How can we contribute to the Gala Games Ecosystem?

The Founder’s Node is really the best way to jump into the ecosystem head first and really get involved. The Gala Games Founder’s Node is essentially a node which helps support the ecosystem by performing tasks that support that system, for which they are rewarded. Right now, you can buy a node here: https://app.gala.games/nodes/buy for about $11k USD. If you run your node, you may receive GALA daily, as well as the occasional NFT for the game network. Everything that gets dropped to the entire network has to go through the nodes, so node operators will receive something for each and every game which comes to the Gala Games Ecosystem.

You can read more about the Gala Games Ecosystem on our site at https://app.gala.games/nodes/ecosystem

  • Questions 3 :

Could you explain a little bit about the Founder’s Node distribution?

Founder’s Nodes are the backbone of the Gala Games ecosystem. These Founder’s Nodes will make it possible for games on the Gala Games ecosystem to run a decentralized platform for game hosting and many other features. They also are responsible for circulating GALA into the ecosystem. This is called a distribution. In the daily distribution, GALA and NFTs may be added to a Founders Node owner's Treasure Chest. These items and GALA do not exist on a blockchain when they are in a treasure chest, and minting is required to write them to the blockchain.
This “mint-on-demand” model enhances the decentralized nature of the network as it does not depend on any single entity to provide ETH gas fees for the whole network. In the long run, the Gala Games Ecosystem plans on transitioning to a multi-chain system, which will enable users to choose which chain they would like their NFTs to exist on. GALA itself will likely remain an ERC-20.

The current distribution system is calculated based on the points that are in each cycle. These points all share the total supply of GALA distributed to users each day. A Founder’s Node is 1 point in the distribution and is rewarded as long as the owner runs their Founder’s Node for at least six hours between 00:00 UTC and 23:59 UTC1.

The other way a person can receive points in the distribution is through referrals. If a person refers someone to the Gala Games ecosystem and they purchase a Founder’s Node, they will receive a 0.1-point referral bonus2. In addition to the 0.1 bonus, after 8 days a direct referral will give a person a one time 10-point bonus as well. The 10-point referral for Founder's nodes are given after 8 or more distribution cycles. This is a one time 10-point referral, but the 0.1 point continues as long as the referral runs their Founder's Node and gets credit in the distribution.

These points are tallied up at the end of the day and used to calculate the numbers for the Daily Distribution. Distribution happens at about 02:15 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)

  • Questions 4 :

Can you tell us about Town Star and the weekly tournaments?

Town Star is a play to earn farming simulation game. You would grow crops, gather resources, and build your farm and expand to earn points! It is a lot of fun, and you may choose free play to practice your strategy and get better at the game play before you choose to join our weekly competition.

Each week, players can enter in a competition against other players. The top 100 players will receive a certain amount of Gala Coins depending on the rank. It is truly a lot of fun, and it really gets players to think about the best strategies because there are a lot of factors that come into play, for example, the weather, the location etc.

  • Questions 5 :

Are there referral rewards for Town Star?

It is not the intention of Gala Games to boost activity in a specific game, but rather to continue growing our ecosystem as a whole. We love Town Star. It is Gala Games’ first game and will always be one of our most popular games. But part of empowering gamers is giving them the freedom to decide which games they want to play, and we intend to have a wide selection for them to choose from. Gala Games wants to make sure that our policies are always as clear as possible, especially regarding matters of rewards. There have been multiple issues surrounding the Give 100 GALA, Get 100 GALA system that have left some players feeling left out, or even worse, confused by the wording. This was never the intention of Gala Games, and we promise to be as straightforward and transparent as possible if and when we revisit a new referral reward system in the future.

  • Questions 6 :

What are some of the upcoming games we can look forward to?

We have over 15 games currently in development with a variety of studios all destined for the Gala Games Ecosystem. Unfortunately, we can’t talk about all of these, but we can introduce you to TownStar (FarmSim), Mirandus (Fantasy MMORPG), Fortified (Tower Defense), and Echoes of Empire (Space 4x).

We also have partnerships in effect with some of the most awesome L2 and Baselayer solutions. We are working with Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Flare, Near, and others. SO MUCH GOING ON!

Third segment : Questions From Twitter

  • Questions :

From @Emilkyra

Do you have any plans for HACKATHON to check the safety of your ecosystem regularly and also invite developers to build your project?

Absolutely, we would like to crowd source community knowledge for something like this, and will likely do something in the future.

  • Questions 2 :

From @MsNazmul4

COVID 19 has slowed down many economies around the world, but as a cryptocurrency business, has it affected your project negatively or positively?

We have build most of our business in COVID, and have over 60 employees now. I am super proud of how we have built a whole decentralized company around the world, and it has made us stronger.

  • Questions 3 :

From @BENSTOCK26

Collaborations and partnerships are some of the most important cornerstones to help improve adoption. Can you tell us about your current partners, plans for partnerships and what everybody stands to gain from these partnerships?

We partner with a lot...just yesterday we announced a partnership with Opera Browser, which has 350m users, to create some NFTs for the world of Mirandus. We are very excited about this...we believe that the world is built on partnerships.

  • Questions 4 :

From @Max85003413

NFT is not just a trend! It is going to rule this decade and innovation has just started. So, with NFT what is your future plan?

We have a LOT of plans for NFTs in the future. Each game we release has NFTs that will be usable in-game. Some of these NFTs get distributed to node owners before release as well! A lot going on for NFTs!

  • Questions 5 :

From @g76974594

A Iot of bIockchain projects are on paper onIy and no product or product has no practicaI meaning. PIease teII us which products are currentIy focused on?

We are very different, because we are product-first...we don't talk about something until it is already there. We did ZERO advertising before we had a playable game on the platform.

Right now we are bringing more games to the platform. Can't wait for everyone to see what we are doing!

Fourth segment : Questions From member

  • Questions 1 :

From @cob_ba_ba

️We all know the downside of the ETH chain is the high cost of fuel. So, how does GALA Game solve this problem? Are you going to build bridges to other blockchain chains, for example to BSC or Polygon?

We are working with just about every L2 out there to integrate them into our platform. This is important to us, because we believe that people need freedom to have their tokens and NFTs wherever they want.

  • Questions 2 :

From @luckyboy0305

Audit is important for both trust and security? Have you done any audit of your project?

Yes, we work closely with AnChain.ai for regular audits of our smart contracts and source code.

  • Questions 3 :

From @Alok4546

Hello sir,

👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
success of the project also depends on how large the community is. Do you have plans to spread awareness to both crypto users d non crypto users in the world? Especially non-English speaking countries that may be restricted from accessing your Project?❤️

We have a very large community and are working on building communities around the world, especially in Asia.

  • Questions 4 :

From @ArekAdam

What is your Approach to the Blockchain Trilemma?
Or the Scalability + Security + Decentralized all at the same time?

I like this question because it shows you actually know a bit about blockchain. There are some challenges to development, but we look at them as fun puzzles to solve. Our main focus is UX with a drive towards decentralization. Security is obviously extremely important as well.

  • Questions 5 :

From @Kabirpate

What output is expected from the community? How do you expect the community to aid the growth of the project? Do you have big bounties or ambassadors program we can enroll for?

For us, we look at the community as being the heart and soul of the project...no project can exist without community. It is extremely important that we work to create opportunities for people to earn through promotion. We are going to revamp our referral program shortly.
