Aptos India expands with Chingari

Chingari, the world’s fastest-growing on-chain social app, is coming to Aptos! Chingari’s addition to the Aptos ecosystem adds fuel to the global Aptos fire, solidifying the Aptos community’s presence in the emerging India Web3 market.

The Chingari community is over 2.2M members strong. Based in India, Chingari’s platform entertains millions of users across 15+ languages and has more than 5 million Daily Active Users (DAU) and 40 million Monthly Active Users (MAU).

As Aptos continues to grow around the world, Chingari’s expansion to the Aptos Network signals that Web3 is a momentous force in India and beyond. Together, we’re excited to raise the bar for the future of decentralized social media 🤝

Solving for the Next Generation of Social Media

Looking back at 2022, the Aptos vision was focused on community. This year, we’re excited to build the Aptos social layer to encourage even more connections, conversations, and media on the network. We know modern end-users live life fast, so their network must be even faster to execute at a truly, social level. Aptos offers the proven speed, credibility, and most performant Web3 network to take on this challenge.

Aptos co-founder and CEO Mo Shaikh said it best in his recent op-ed for Fast Company:

"It’s time for companies and entrepreneurs to bring social media to Web3 in a user-centric, decentralized, and inclusive way."

Web3 is leading the way in repairing the broken, social media landscape that has emerged on Web2 today.

We’re excited and optimistic to work with Chingari to bring this vision to life! Chingari offers seamless, social-first UX – we’re confident that Aptos’ security and speed will support their strong social foundations in onboarding weary Web2 users onto their best social experience on Web3.

Web3 Mass Adoption and Beyond

‘Intent’ is the name of the game in 2023. Last year, Aptos laid the groundwork to propel Web3 use cases across social, gaming, NFT and DeFi. We dreamed of turning heads and changing minds, and now the moment has come to bring Web3 to mass appeal. Our intention for Web3 freedom for all is becoming a reality.

“While [Web2 social platforms] flail, the digital economy flourishes. Creators are looking for opportunities to show bold pursuits, grow audiences, and sell merchandise across platforms. They want to bring swag on to Fortnite and distribute it during a virtual party. They want to livestream on YouTube and Twitch. And, yes, they even want to dance on TikTok.” - Mo Shaikh, Aptos co-founder and CEO in Fast Company

There are over 4.5 billion social media users who congregate on digital platforms for connection and creation. When Web2 social makes its way to Web3, mass adoption will be undeniable.

On-chain social media platforms like Chingari are set to pioneer the Web3 paradigm shift. Aptos and Chingari are committed to holding the torch for all those who want to join us!

The upgraded version of the Chingari app will launch on Aptos in Q2 2023, allowing users to become a part of the community by simply downloading the Chingari app & Wallet, powered by Aptos Network. Stay tuned for more information on the Aptos x Chingari roll out.

Until then, join us on Twitter, Discord, GitHub, and YouTube. We can’t wait to share more details about what’s in store for 2023.
