GARI Network Introduction


Gari is Empowering Short Video Content Creators With Social Tokens.

The GARI Token offers Chingari App users a gateway to the blockchain space. The goal is to empower both creators and viewers on the Chingari App with technological tools to interact directly with each other and allow all users on the Chingari App to participate in the long-term direction of the social economy impacting the GARI Token.


The GARI Token is interconnected with the Chingari App, opening to Chingari App users a wider blockchain world where they directly control their assets and can use their tokens to connect and transact with their counterparties, place governance votes, and catalyze platform engagement and user base growth.

Key features:

Tipping: Users can use the Gari tokens in their in-app Gari wallet to tip their favourite content creators directly from the video feed as well as from the Creator’s profile. These transactions are completely on-chain.

Boost: Creators will be able to boost their profile and posts to 100M+ chingari users, while making the payment for the service through $Gari.

Token Gated access: Gari holders can access exclusive content on Chingari platform by staking their tokens on creator pools.

Governance: $Gari holders will be able to stake and earn yield as well as vote on proposals to decide the future direction of the platform.

NFTs: Chingari will be the world's biggest video NFT marketplace. These NFTs can only be purchased with $Gari tokens.

Audio Rooms Currency: Audio rooms is a feature on Chingari app, similar to Clubhouse, where creators can connect with their followers over audio meetings. $Gari will be used by users to purchase gifts for these creators.
