This article explains the importance of understanding what a Transfer Code is and how it’s different from passwords and seed phrases. It also briefly touches on why all three are crucial parts of securing a Gala Games Account and GALA wallet.
This article assumes the reader understands the information in the following articles:
The Transfer code is what allows a user to transfer GALA, Ethereum, and BAT.
A Transfer Code is the password for a person’s wallet, which is a different kind of password compared to an accounts password. While an account’s password is to log into a Gala Games account, a Transfer Code allows the user to interact with an account’s wallet.
A wallet contains any NFTs, GALA and other crypto currencies that a person may own. A Transfer Code is a powerful password and is the key to control the funds in a wallet. This is why it is absolutely crucial for all Gala Games account holders to write down and secure their transfer codes so that they are not lost, forgotten, or stolen. Gala Games does not store a Transfer Code or Seed phrase. This means that if both are lost, a person will not be able to interact with their wallet.
An account owner must have their seed phrase in order to create a new transfer code. It is recommended that users keep the seed phrase and transfer code separate so, if one is accidentally lost or destroyed, there is still a way to access the account.
