17 Mar Bitfinex Lists Gala Games Amid Crypto Gaming Boom
ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands, March 17 2022 10:00 AM UTC – Bitfinex, a state-of-the-art digital token trading platform, has listed Gala (GALA), a decentralized gaming ecosystem. The addition of GALA broadens Bitfinex’s support for gaming tokens, a sector poised for significant growth this year amid an explosion of interest in digital gaming and Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
Gala Games uses decentralized ledger technologies to give players back control, enabling players to own their in-game items and have a voice in how the Gala Games roadmap develops. Items in the games function as NFTs, providing players with ownership of their tools.
Furthermore, players and node owners will be enlisted, via distributed voting mechanisms, to help determine what games should be added to the platform or what should be funded by the decentralized Gala Games ecosystem.
“We’re delighted to add Gala Games to the tokens available to trade on our platform,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex. “We anticipate great interest in Gala among the exchange’s growing customer base.”
“I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t think this was literally the next phase of the internet,” said Eric Schiermeyer, the CEO of Gala Games, in a statement on its website. “Everything that touches ownership is going to be affected by what’s happening here. Art and music and everything that has a digital life is going to be touched by this. Anything that you thought was digital that you thought you owned but didn’t really own — that’s what’s about to be revolutionized.”
Trading of GALA commenced from 17/02/22 at 10:00 AM UTC. GALA will be available to trade with US Dollars (GALA/USD) and Tether tokens (GALA/USDt).
There are now about 398 active blockchain games, defined as having at least one active wallet in the past 24 hours within the game, according to the data tracker DappRadar. That’s a 92 percent increase from a year ago. The total number of blockchain games, including those that are inactive, has climbed by 71 per cent over the past year to 1,179.
Gala Games has a community first model whereby the input of users shapes the direction each game’s design takes. Gala Games’s growing community is evidenced by a burgeoning Discord community with 150,000 members, while it has 333,000 followers on Twitter.
