Gala (GALA) Price



Before trading any crypto assets it is important to understand the risks. This overview summarizes certain risks associated with GALA. 

No securities regulatory authority has expressed an opinion about GALA, including an opinion that GALA itself is not a security and/or derivative.

Token Description & Project Background

Gala Games is a blockchain-based, play-to-earn gaming development platform. Its mission is to make blockchain games people "actually want to play.” The Gala platform launched in 2020 and at the time was considered an early mover in the play-to-earn space.

Eric Schiermeyer, Gala’s CEO, helped co-found Zynga, a successful game developer.

The Gala Games platform aims to give players control over how games get developed. Earned GALA utility tokens allow users to participate in decisions. Gala ecosystem participants can also create non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for use within games and also for trading outside games, on secondary markets.

GALA is the platform’s native token - it is used to secure the platform and incentivize users.

The project eventually plans to migrate to its own native blockchain, Messari said, but for now Gala and its in-house GALA asset runs on Ethereum (as an ERC-20) as well as on Binance Smart Chain and the Polygon Network. 

Risks of GALA

Like an investment in other crypto assets, there are some general risks to investing in GALA. These include:  (i) volatility risk and liquidity risk, (ii) short history risk, (iii) demand risk, (iv) forking risk, (v) code defects, (vi) regulatory risk, (vii) electronic trading risk, and (viii) cyber security risk. For additional information of these and other general risks associated with crypto assets and Uphold’s platform, please refer to the Risks Specific to Holding Digital Assets statement.

In addition to these general risks, an investment in GALA is subject to the following specific risks:

  • Any potential success associated with GALA depends on the Gala Games’ rate of adoption by users. Investors should be aware a number of competing blockchain gaming projects have entered the field since GALA’s launch in 2020.
  • Any potential success associated with GALA is dependent on a number of external factors such as the growth and increased adoption of the metaverse and the continued popularity of NFTs as digital collectibles.
