On January 8, Gala Games tweeted that they will have a significant collaboration with Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), and its business model has changed. Besides that, GALA token now serves as the gas token in Gala Films and Gala Music as well.

The Rock and Mark Wahlberg, two of the biggest figures in the entertainment industry, are now working on two movies with the producers. According to a statement from the app developers, movie ticket buyers will be able to scan a QR code to win digital rewards. Another aspect raising the price is the current developer shift toward mobile. Users will find it simple to download and play its games, earning native tokens in the process.

Update: Gala Games has nonetheless removed the news tweet without providing any further information. The Rock and Wahlberg’s involvement in the NFT sector has led to a lot of skepticism in the cryptocurrency community.

Closing Thoughts

The new collaboration with The Rock is a milestone in the blockchain gaming industry. I personally believe blockchain gaming is the future of games. The Play-to-Earn (P2E) model allows gamers to play and earn tokens with full control of in-game items. It provides gamers with more incentives and motivations to play.
