Running a Founder's Node is a great way to help the Gala Games and Entertainment ecosystem and get rewarded. This article explains the benefits of running one.

What is a Distribution?
When a Founder's Node meets the daily uptime quota of at least 6 hours1, the operators are rewarded with $GALA and other game-related tokens daily. Each Founder's Node (paired with a license) rewards 1 point in the distribution.
For example: If a person owns 10 Founder's Nodes Licenses and fulfills the quota, they would get 10 points. The $GALA amount is not fixed and can change based on how many points are in the distribution cycle. Founder's Node owners are also eligible for random NFT distributions.
NOTE: NFTs are finite and are a bonus reward, not the main incentive.
