What is a Distribution
A Node license refers to a particular license a user purchases from the Gala Games and Entertainment store. Some of these licenses include a Founder’s Node license and a Last Expedition Node license. By purchasing a license, a user can help support the Gala Games and Entertainment ecosystem in various ways and get rewarded based on what license a user purchased.
The Gala Node software allows a user with one or multiple types of licenses to support the network from one computer. This software can allow a person to run one of each type of license available, as long as they are not the same. If, for example, a user has purchased 2 Founder’s Node licenses and 1 Last Expedition Node license, the user will be able to run the Gala Node software on one computer for 1 Founder’s Node license and 1 Last Expedition license and will need an additional computer to run their additional Founder’s Node license. Users who run the Gala Node software without a license will not receive any rewards from the distribution.
