Chingari Launches India’s First Cryptocurrency Token For Social Media Platform
Chingari has a firm grip on what consumers want. It is the first Indian social media platform to launch its own cryptocurrency called $ GARI, including a marketplace for non-fungible tokens, or NFTs. $ GARI will enable content creators to set up an e-commerce space for physical goods and NFT creations.
Additionally, the digital token will allow app users to support and fund their favorite artists and creators, which helps creators monetize their content.
Famous Bollywood actor Salman Khan has signed on as a brand ambassador for the NFT market. $ GARI was recently launched in October 2021 and raised $ 40 million in 24 hours of its direct sale on Republic, a crowd equity platform.
Chingari also raised $ 19 million from several crypto-based venture capitalists and an additional $ 6 million through an initial IDO or dex offering.
The $ GARI token is built on the Solana blockchain, one of the largest and fastest growing decentralized networks in the world. Chingari will use the funds raised to launch and expand avenues for creator monetization through various web tools.
Chingari was quick to capitalize on the ban on several Chinese video-sharing apps last year as Indian creators sought to find a new platform to share their content. Chingari’s creator-centric features, her monetization opportunities, and all the unique features that the app offers have set her on the path to great success.
