Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Hello Satoshiclubbers welcome to another AMA session

Pavel P

Hello everyone and welcome to Satoshi Club AMA Session with GARI!

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Let’s welcome our guests from GARI

@siduprising @geekyaman

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Hello welcome to satoshi club

Pavel P

@siduprising, @geekyaman, Welcome to Satoshi Club!

SiDUprising

Thank you Satoshi Club for having us here.

We are very excited to let Satoshi Community know about GARI Network.

Geek

Hello, Thanks for welcoming! @Jonahapagu

Glad to be here with Satoshi Club!!

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

We are Excited to have the both of you here

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

How are you doing?

Pavel P

Glad to see you here, guys!

Geek

Absolutely fine ? How are you guys

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

We are doing fine as well

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

So let’s start our AMA

Pavel P

We’re looking forward to have a great AMA today!

SiDUprising

We are doing really very good ! Last few days have been really busy, also currently we are actually running with a lot of things which includes new listings.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Let’s start with an Introduction Can you please introduce yourselves to us, how you got into crypto, and how the project GARI started?

Pavel P

We’ll know it better in details in the next hour or more

SiDUprising

Sure !

SiDUprising

I am Siddhant Chowdhry handling marketing and community for GARI Network. It has been exciting journey in the crypto space. We saw crypto space something very exciting and thought of bringing our users of Chingari App to this space.

Chingari happened in 2020 around May-June. When TikTok was banned in India, our CEO Sumit Ghosh suddenly saw a huge surge in our user base. In Jan 2021, Sumit came across web3 and DAOs and clearly saw them as the future of social media and the internet in general. That’s when we started working on GARI.

Geek

I’m Aman handling the product side of $GARI as product manager.

Personally I got into crypto back in 2018 bear market.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

So can you tell us what GARI is all about?

SiDUprising

Definitely, I can take this up !

SiDUprising

Gari is a social token. Like I said when I saw web3, DAO’s and the concept of a community and creators owning the platform which they are creating. I think that is a very strong fundamental idea. The goal of gari is to give ownership, governance and a way of democratically uniformly earning back to creators. So imagine owning or being an early adopter of TikTok, or owning a stock or a stake in Facebook, how powerful is that.

The GARI Token introduces a gateway into the blockchain space, to Chingari App users. 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.

Pavel P

Great idea!

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

This is an impressive Idea

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Thank you for the introduction

SiDUprising

Social tokens are the future of social media

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

We have selected some community questions are you ready for them?

Pavel P

Q1 from telegram user @thisistoyin

I understand that Gari was Built on a Web 3, & have been building a project extensively and its moving in the space of Play to earn, watch to earn and Engage to earn on Chingari App. Now given that other Contemporary Social medias out there are somehow based on the Web2, and the vast Majority of individuals out there doesn’t yet know about the Advantages of the web 3, which the Changali app was Built on, could you please extensively give us the strategies in which you plan to Further Enlighten the General public about the Benefits to which your platform Provides? How many Countries apart from India have you been able to Reach out too? Please i would like to know if you have any Ambassador program going on.

SiDUprising

Yes, Bring it on

We would be happy to answer them

Geek

Woaw that’s pretty solid question!

Pavel P

And this is the first one!

SiDUprising

That’s a good question.

Chingari in general has a lot of potential. We as a social media company can get hundreds of millions of social media users into crypto.

India’s leading short video sharing app with more than 32 million daily active users, has reached another important milestone in its journey. Chingari is now India’s number one social media app on Google Play, surpassing popular apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.

Founded in November 2018 by Sumit Ghosh, Deepak Salvi, Aditya Kothari, and Biswatma Nayak, the Chingari app has rapidly risen from relative obscurity over the years to become India’s hottest social media platform, thanks to distributed ledger technology and crypto.

Pavel P

32M in just 1.5 years! Impressive!

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Huge indeed

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Will you partner with other social media platforms??

SiDUprising

The users can come to our platform, make videos and get rewarded on the basis of no of views.

We are spreading it across globe. We have recently been introduced to Indonesia and we have plans to capture all the regions.

As of now, we are not running up with a ambassador program. But if anyone feels that he/she can add value to the project, we would be happy to onboard him on the platform.

SiDUprising

We have a vision to currently keep building Chingari and GARI network, but we are open to such proposals.

Honestly, we haven’t thought on this line yet.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Thank you for your answers

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Ready now for the next question?

SiDUprising

Absolutely

Pavel P

Q2 from telegram user @iceVermithraxx

I understand that Changari is a social media app and using the Changari App users can earn GARI tokens, in three different modes namely: play to earn, watch-to-earn and engage to earn. Can you explain more on these three different modes in which users can earn GARI token in Changari App? What are some on the games which users can earn while playing in Changari App? Can you elaborate on some of the activities which users can engage in Chingari App to start earning? What are the requirements for users to start earn GARI tokens using these three earning methods in Chingari App?

SiDUprising

That’s a nice question ! Good to see that people wants to learn in deep about GARI Network

Chingari is empowering video content creators worldwide with Blockchain.

Creators are incentivised to create better content with $GARI tokens.

1) Play to Earn – We are building into Metaverse and structuring our space to bring Play to earn games for the folks on Chingari App.

People on the app can play games and get rewarded in $GARI Tokens.

2) Watch to earn – We are making it possible for the users where in a user will get paid in $GARI for watching and spending time in Chingari App.

Pavel P

So, the games will be integrated into the app? is it available on all types of devices?

SiDUprising

3) Engage to Earn – The users in the Chingari App can make engagement in the videos in the app by Liking it or commenting on it and you get rewarded in $GARI tokens.

SiDUprising

That’s correct .It will be integrated in the app and it is being worked upon.

It will be available on all type of devices. Anyone who wants to have a look at our app can download the app from Play Store/App store.

Currently, a user can native centralised coins ‘Chingari coins’ by making Videos, it is Indian version of Tiktok.

You make videos, depending on the number of views and followers in the account, you get paid in Chingari Coins.

SiDUprising

But soon, these coins will be replaced by GARI tokens and it will be all decentralised.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

All this models are entirely for free to participate?

SiDUprising

We are building on this feature and currently we cannot disclose much of the information about this.

I am also sharing the link to download Chingari App for the Satoshi Club community members.

https://app.adjust.net.in/6nf4nha

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Great.. All the models are exciting, I’m sure the community are eager for when all is set

Pavel P

Let’s proceed to the 3rd question!

SiDUprising

Sure, Let’s Go

Pavel P

Q3 from telegram user @Cheriemike

I will like you to talk on some of the key features of $GARI token,you mentioned that $GARI will be used for Tipping, Governance,Boost,Token Gated Access etc.So in terms of Tipping,are users allowed to tip their favorite content creators from the video feed voluntarily or you placed a fix amount of $GARI for that?For Governance,what is the amount of $GARI users are to stake as they vote on proposals to decide the future direction of the platform including the % yield earned?For Token Gated Access,you said users are to stake their tokens on creators pool.So can you elaborate more the creators pools and the amount to stake in the pool?For the Boosting part,creators are to pay for such service to boost their profile.Can they use any other token aside $GARI and will it be a one time payment?Please explain Thanks

SiDUprising

Good Question !

Focused on utilities of GARI

There will be no restriction in the app for tipping $GARI to the creators. 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.

$Gari holders will be able to stake and earn yield as well as vote on proposals to decide the future direction of the platform. There will be certain number of tokens to be staked in order to participate in the governance based on the holders.

For the staking, there will be 7% APY earned.

These features will be soon integrated with Chingari App.

Pavel P

Could you share your tokenomics to see the distribution of $GARI?

SiDUprising

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

The creator pool will be decided on the basis of number of holders.

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

We will be allowing payment via $GARI token. It will be the in-app currency in Chingari ecosystem.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

BTW As regards the staking will there also be a Minimum amount? And what will the rewards for staking be?

SiDUprising

Definitely, we will be keeping a certain minimum amount for folks to stake $GARI. Let’s say I find a creator early in his journey and I stake my Gari tokens to him — these tokens go to a staking pool and the creator can take a loan from the stake pool and he can buy a better camera, better equipment, better clothes and become a better creator. One basically earns 7 percent of all of the revenue that this creator earns in future from the NFT and the creator economy flourishes. So if one of these videos goes viral and let’s say that NFT gets millions of dollars of trade in a month, the user will get 7 percent of that for staking him in his journey. Imagine you stake 10 creators and overall these 10 creators and they make 10 million dollars in the next one year you will get 7 percent of that. We are basically bringing staking to the next level on social media. We are calling it social staking. This is the first time that any social media company is still thinking about this feature and Chingari is the first one to implement it.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Thank you for your Answers

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Ready now for the next question?

Geek

Sure! I will be taking the next one

Pavel P

Q4 from telegram user @sunny_steel

As far as I understand, Chingari is a stable community of 75M+ members primary used in India. You say it has been ahead in taking initiatives for the greater good of society as well as its audience under one roof. How would adapt the app and the project in general to expand outside of primarily market? What additonal and unique features will it include compared to Telegram, WhatsUp and other identical apps? Please also talk the services you succeeded to integrate into the application. Thanks!

Geek

Sure

We would say that we are not competing with the Apps you mentioned. Chingari is the fastest-growing short-form video app. The app lets users make short-form videos, share them with their friends or fans, and earn at the same time.

Talking about the unique features, we plan to integrate Chingari Audio Rooms, GARI NFT Marketplace, Multiplex, and the GARI Token itself, in the upcoming updates.

All-in-all, we plan to leverage the power of Blockchain Technology and the Community of Web3 for the advancement of our Platform. Hope that answers the question!

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

These are great and unit features

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

But what is the Multiplex all about?

Geek

Well, Chingari Multiplex is all about providing multiple entertainment platforms to the best user experience to its through Chingari App.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Thank you for your answers

Do you want to add anything to this?Or can we proceed to the next question?

Geek

Well that’s it for now, yes we can go to the next one.

Pavel P

Q5 from telegram user @Arisabela

As I was able to investigate, Gari offers a “Token Gated access” which means that only Gari holders who stake their tokens in creator pools will have access to exclusive content, I would like to know if the staking process must be with a minimum amount of $Gari? Will features like Live Streams be completely disabled for non-staker users or will they have limited access? What other benefits does the staking system provide to users?

Geek

Pretty interesting question !

We’ll let the content creator to choose if their video is a premium one (for which they’d like only Gari stakers to have access) or if its a part the of essential feed (available to non-gari stakers as well). There would be a min. staking amount. This will encourage creators to create better content which in turn will create a better experience for users.

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Great so in other words the Creator decides on this

Geek

Live stream feature will also be not only limited to Gari stakers. However influencers may choose to allow Gari stakers or provide only limited access to non stakers.

Staking will have several other utilities like a discounted price on any in-app purchases etc which we’ll roll out gradually

Geek

Yes totally creator based economy, what we are focusing

Pavel P

Satoshiclubbers, please make notes!

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Do they also have the choice of deciding how much Tokens users must have staked to get access to their contents or will the minimum be based on what you decide?

Geek

Well this will be live soon as we cannot share much of the information about this, but yes we are 100% focusing on our community and creators !

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Thank you for your answers

Ready for the last question for this part?

Geek

Yes totally, Loving the questions by the Satoshi Community !

Pavel P

Q6 from telegram user @Ask4unik

I read about Chingari’s Clubhouse clone FireSide but was shut down and live audio was integrated with parent app by January 2022.And you stated that you started FireSide because you realized that internet audio has a future. So, when you launched FireSide, it was just an experiment to build the technology.So can you tell us the new features of Chingari’s ClubHouse and its difference from the Clone FireSide?What languages are available in the Clubhouse?And what can users actually discuss in the clubhouse any specific topics?Did you impose any rules to keep chats in the club house clean?To use your audio rooms you said users can purchase various UI options and send virtual gifts,so can users make payments with both $GARI tokens and Fiats?Please kindly share more informations about Audio Room. Thanks

Geek

Sure! I will explain this in detail.

Geek

Chingari audio rooms will allow major differentiation in terms of:

a. Allowing creators to connect with their followers and build a more engaged community

b. Chingari Audio rooms will have a lot of gamification and virtual gifting enabled

c. It will have monetization features for people who are spending time wherein they can convert the gifts received

Geek

Since it is audio, it will be on basis of the user’s choice. From an app language perspective, it will support all languages that chingari is currently supporting. Users are free to decide the topics for themselves.

We have enabled room owners to have supporting admins and mods in the room to monitor the conversation and remove and ban people from the rooms. In long term, we will have automated solutions for moderation.

The purchase of room themes, gifts etc are powered by in-app currency Diamonds (which is bought with fiat) and Gari. However we’ll eventually discard diamonds from Chingari app and there’ll be only one token to rule them all, Gari

Well, I hope this was detailed answer

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

Impressive, I like how you’ve thought out all this in detail

Thank you for your answers in this first part

Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club

We will now like to proceed to the second part of our AMA

What is the main reason for you to dump Ethereum erc-20 blockchain and build the project with the Binance Smart Chain BEP-20?

GARI is deployed as an SPL token on the Solana blockchain to support cost-effective and fast on-chain transactions. Also, Solana is one of the most robust layer-1s in the industry, with an evolving community.

Q4 from Telegram user @canserven

I read that most of the GARI community is in India. Do you plan to carry out targeted marketing campaigns in other parts of the world to achieve mass adoption of GARI?

SiDUprising

We are across globe, we have recently tapped markets of Indonesia and planning to widen our reach. India is one of the country that we cater to and since tiktok got banned, this gave way to Chingari being popular in India.

Q5 from Telegram user @Khalinai

Most investors only focus on the price of short term instead of the real value of the project. Can you tell me the benefits for long-term for project investors?

Geek

Totally as we said we have tons of utilities in our product and we are not promising anything over futuristic product.
Our App is already live with over 100M downloads and 35M+ Monthly users so you can expect how big we are going to be once we expand ourselves globally ! Lastly, we are backed up some top backers in the investors as well, so in long run $GARI will grow

Could you tell us ?

Geek

This is because the Web3 space is built by the community, and for the community. We, at GARI, believe in a business model which leverages the power of community. The creator economy exists and flourishes only with Community Assistance and mutual understanding.

Q10 from Telegram user @tanish19078

I saw your projects promotion done by Salman khan are you hiring more influencers and i saw you had vacancies but why did you have no indian vacancies ?

SiDUprising

So we have Salman Khan as our brand ambassador. Salman Khan is like the Brad Pitt of India, with more than 100 million followers across all social media platforms — Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. He is our brand ambassador and Chingari is one of the fastest-growing social media apps in India today. If you go to Google play store in India and check the top app on social you will find Chingari in the number 2 or number 3 app just before or after Facebook. So we are growing really really fast as a social media app. We have partnerships across and for music, we have T — Series, Saregama all of the biggest music labels. A lot of Bollywood celebrities are on Chingari promoting their content and promoting their movies. We are basically taking the Bollywood angle where we involve Bollywood celebrities to promote Gari and Chingari. Most of them are already promoting Chingari and by default, we are promoting Gari as well.
