Sarah Buxton, COO, Gala Games CEO Gala Music

I have never had ‘a job’, in part because I always wanted power over my choices. My entrepreneurial nature, for better or worse, is driven by wanting to feel a true sense of freedom and ownership. That is something blockchain gives you and so Gala Games is a natural place for me.

Before joining Gala just over a year ago, I spent a lot of time in FinTech amongst other major industries and realised a real discrepancy between the people who have and the people who have not, and realised that technology alone is not going to fix that. Blockchain in a gaming environment really enables the general public who want to play games to access a fairer and more equitable world and that excites me. If games can do that, so can music and I’m delighted to be part of building a new decentralized future with Gala Music now too.
