What is a Distribution
A Node license refers to a particular license a user buys from the Gala Games store. Some of these licenses can include a Founder’s Node license and a Town Star Node license. By purchasing a license, a user is able to help support the Gala Games 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 licenses available, as long as they are not the same licenses. If for example a user has purchased 2 Founder’s Node licenses and 1 Town Star Node license, the user will be able to run the Gala Node software on 1 computer for 1 Founder’s Node license and 1 Town Star license and will need an additional computer to run their additional Founder’s Node license. Users that choose to run the Gala Node software without a license will not receive any rewards from the distribution.
