What is a $GARI token?
Short-form video app Chingari has entered the cryptocurrency realm with its crypto token GARI. GARI, a fungible blockchain token, will function “both a future in-app money and a governance token,” according to the company. The token will be created in collaboration with the Solana blockchain.
Social tokens are digital assets that are backed by a person, brand, or community. “They allow creators to receive more equitable pay and forge deeper relationships within audiences,” the company said.
“We introduce GARI as a social token for the community of Chingari creators that will give them governance authority over the future platform developments through the DAO and create a circular economy,” the video application further elaborated.
Chingari’s GARI tokens are intended to incorporate cryptocurrencies into the daily lives of content creators and audiences. The gradual use of tokens or coins will enable the long-term seamless adoption of tokens. The basic mechanics of the Chingari app will also assist new users in entering the realm of cryptocurrency with a “familiar short-term tool.” Also Read: DMart CEO Ignatius Navil Noronha is now a billionaire, here’s what made him so wealthy

Viewers can also use GARI tokens for international purposes, including as buying goods and services directly from a video or author profile. GARI tokens can be used to purchase the things seen in the video. “Every video that gets uploaded to Chingari is parsed frame by frame and all detected objects are then matched with a live catalog of products and each video becomes shopping enabled in real-time by the time it hits your feed. All these social video commerce transactions will be done using Gari Tokens in the future,” the company said.
