This article explains what a Transfer Code is, the types of transfer codes, and how it’s different from a password and seed phrase.
This article assumes the reader understands the information in the following articles:
A Transfer Code is the password for a user's wallet, which is not the same as the account password. An account password is used for logging into a Gala Games and Entertainment account, while a Transfer Code allows the user to interact and control the funds in their wallet.
It is critical for all Gala Games and Entertainment account holders to write down and secure their Transfer Code and Seed Phrase to prevent them from being lost, forgotten, or stolen.
Gala Games and Entertainment does not keep a Transfer Code or Seed Phrase on file. This means that if both are misplaced, a non-web3 wallet user will be unable to interact with their wallets, and web3 wallet users will be unable to interact with their GalaChain wallet.
There are two types of Transfer Code:
GalaChain Transfer Code
The GalaChain Transfer Code is required on transactions that interact with the GalaChain Blockchain. Transactions on the Ethereum network will no longer prompt for a transfer code.
When a user disconnects a Web3 wallet, the GalaChain transfer code is unaffected.
This applies to users who do not connect a web3 wallet and continue to use their original $GALA wallet before the web3 wallet integration. The Transfer Code will continue to function in the same manner. It will be required to initiate transactions regardless of whether they are performed on the GalaChain or Ethereum networks.
Important: To change the Transfer Code, users must provide the 12-word seed phrase generated during account creation. This applies to all users, whether they use a Gala Games and Entertainment wallet or a web3 wallet.
It is recommended that users keep the seed phrase and transfer code separately so that if one is accidentally lost or destroyed, the account can still be accessed.
