Right now the requirements are very light. A Founder's Node is extremely light weight, and does not "mine" in the traditional sense. A Founder's Node secures the game blockchain that Gala Games uses for games at the moment. You accumulate 1 point per node running them for 6+ hours each day (one point for running 6+ hours every 24 hours [no extra points past 6 hours]). No crypto mining is involved. You get gala based on number of points you get. If one of your referrals buys a Founder's Node, you also get a one time 10 point bonus and 0.1 recurring points as long as your referral ran their Founder's Node for the required time in each distribution. This 10 point bonus is rewarded after 8 days from purchase. The supported operating systems at the moment are Windows and Linux (64-bit required). However, in the near future, there will be additional requirements in terms of computational capacity and speed placed on nodes. Lighter nodes will likely still function, but they will be given rewards in proportion to their contribution to the network. More information will be released on this when it is available.
The supported operating systems at the moment are Windows and Linux (64-bit required). For Windows, you can download the software from "My Nodes" under your account page on the Gala website. For Linux, you can find the install guide here: Gala Games Headless Linux Node
