What is the Gala chain looking for?

 

According to Jason Brink, President of Blockchain, Gala Games, there are three main areas focusing on and giving extra attention to projects that use $GALA as the gas within the system.

 

  1. DePin projects focusing on potential gaming applications: BitBender is keen to see more exploration in this area.
  2. IoT projects: BitBender is intensely interested in this area. He previously worked with universities in Southeast Asia on using IoT devices for seismic sensing and wants to see what others have in mind.
  3. Logistics Applications: BitBender has invested in blockchain projects related to logistics, but many have failed due to Ethereum’s limitations. He’s eager to see someone tackle this challenge.
