This article aims to provide a clear differentiation between the GalaChain Seed Phrase versus your Ethereum Seed Phrase for Web3 wallet users.
This article assumes you understand the information in the following articles:
For newcomers within the Gala Ecosystem, an important step in creating a new Gala Games and Entertainment account involves the connection of a Web3 wallet. This wallet comes with its own unique seed phrase, which we will refer to in this article as your Ethereum Seed Phrase.
At a later stage, you might find it necessary to set up your GalaChain Transfer Code. This involves a separate procedure wherein you will be provided with a different seed phrase, referred to as your GalaChain Seed Phrase. The GalaChain Seed Phrase serves the specific purpose of resetting your transfer code.
It is important to keep in mind that you now have two sets of seed phrases linked to your Gala Games and Entertainment account:
The Ethereum Seed Phrase - is linked to your Web3 Wallet. Losing this seed phrase would result in your inability to access your Web3 wallet.
The GalaChain Seed Phrase - is linked to your GalaChain Transfer Code. Losing this phrase would result in the funds and NFTs stored in your GalaChain wallet becoming inaccessible. This seed phrase is required whenever you choose to make changes to your GalaChain transfer code.
Additional scenarios could be:
1) Users with accounts established prior to Web3 Wallet integration and later on connected a Web3 wallet using THE SAME wallet address provided during the initial creation of your Gala account, the same seed phrase will be required when changing your GalaChain transfer code.
2) If you created an account before Web3 Wallet integration and later on connected a Web3 wallet using a DIFFERENT wallet address, you will still need the original seed phrase provided during the setup of your account to reset your GalaChain transfer code.
