“With a vision to establish ‘Social Tokens’ as the future of community platforms, $GARI aims to transform the creator ecosystem of the Indian sub-continent by enabling creators to set up their ecommerce space that includes physical merchandise, NFT creations and the ability for the fan community to fund their favourite artists,” Sumit Ghosh, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Chingari, said in a statement.

Founded in November 2018, Chingari lets users download and upload short videos and shop for merchandise within the app, among other things. The Bengaluru-based rival of Instagram Reels, MX Takatak, Josh and Moj boasts of 50 million monthly active users and 85 million downloads to date and the co-founders are confident that it will be India’s fastest growing ‘Social Token App’.

Since its redesign in June 2020, Chingari worked to fill the vacuum created by TikTok’s ban in India. Ever since, the number of Chingari users is claimed to have increased exponentially.
