Chingari GupShupp


It has been a star-studded affair for Chingari this season. The last 2 months have been nothing but a fun Bollywood parade for the Chingarians – All thanks to its newest segment, Chingari GupShupp powered by $GARI. 


Chingari GupShupp, a Talk Show interviewing the who’s who of Bollywood, has been gaining great traction and appreciation from viewers across various social media platforms. Hosted by our very own Simrata Singh, the segment is filled with a lot of glitz and glamour, sensational questions, fun & entertaining games and ‘Chingari laga dene wale’ celebs.


The very first interview of this segment was with Bollywood’s most-intense and versatile actor, Ajay Devgn, and the stunning Rakul Preet Singh for the promotion of their movie Runway 34. Just like the movie, even the interview received great appreciation and engagement from viewers and users in-app as well as on other platforms. 


The second and most entertaining interview was scheduled with India’s current crush and heartthrob, Kartik Aaryan, for his movie Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Making it to a successful hattrick was Chingari GupShupp’s third interview with the most renowned comedian and the winner of Lock Upp Season 1, Munawar Faruqui. His hilarious and heart-to-heart conversations won many hearts over social media as well as in-app, making it the most-watched video of Chingari GupShupp. 


The most recent leg of interviews was conducted with the starcast of Escaype Live – The latest web series introduced by Disney+ Hotstar. From very senior actor, comedian Javeed Jaaferi and girl next door Shweta Tripathi Sharma, to India’s most-loved Krishna-turned Darkie, Sumedh Mudgalkar, all 3 interviews were a great success and received an overwhelming response from the viewers, especially the videos with Sumedh Mudgalkar, who enjoys a huge fan-base across India. Based on these candid conversations, Chingari’s YouTube channel has, in the last 2 months, gained a great subscribership of around 4-5K.


For the Marathi cinema lovers and movie buffs, Chingari has yet another gem in its store. Chingari GappaTappa has been constantly pleasing Marathi fans with great content and candid interviews of Marathi artists, celebrities and directors that come on Chingari GappaTappa for their movie or work promotion. Our youngest talent Neha Prabhu is the host and dost for this amazing segment that you can check on Chingari Marathi.

Audio Rooms Launch!


Chingari Audio Rooms was officially launched on May 17, 2022, at an event hosted by the Internet & Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) at Hotel Sahara Star, Mumbai.


Over 300+ industry delegates attended the IAMAI – Voice for Bharat event, where professionals offered key views on the newest voice-based technologies presented in the Indian market that would prove to be game-changers in the voice industry’s future, including Chingari Audio Rooms.


Mr. Deepak Salvi formally announced Audio Rooms, speaking about the expanding consumption trend of audio features and how Audio Rooms would fill the gap, particularly for consumers in Tier 2, 3 & 4 belts, consequently heavily boosting regional content through Audio Rooms. The keynote presentation was followed by a 5-minute AV that discussed the USP and benefits of Chingari Audio Rooms and was warmly welcomed and enjoyed by the audience present during the launch. The ‘IAMAI and Chingari presents Voice for Bharat event’ was a major success, highlighting how creators, companies and professionals can utilize the platform to better interact and engage with their audiences in a live environment via Audio Rooms.


Simrata Singh anchors a weekly show called Kahi Unkahi on Chingari’s Audio Rooms. The podcast, which concentrates upon modern-day issues and their solutions, is a tremendous hit among audio listeners. It has become the most popular audio show amongst all Chingari users, airing every Thursday at 9 p.m. The show’s pertinent subjects allow listeners to communicate and engage with the anchor and each other, making the session relatable to everybody. Music Director Sajid Khan from the Sajid-Wajid duo also attended the latest Kahi-Unkahi session to promote his new music album through Chingari Audio Rooms. The session received a resoundingly positive reaction from the audience and was greatly appreciated by everyone.


So, if you haven’t tried Chingari Audio Rooms yet, we can only repeat after Poo, “What are you waiting for?” Christmas?”

Chingari AI said so…!


The annual Weather Report states that by 1st week of June, India should be prepared to receive moderate to heavy rainfall.


But the twist for Chingarians is that, along with the monsoon, we will also have GARI Tokens raining all over India, and gradually the globe.


GARI Mining starts on 10th June, 2022.

Chingari users have been enjoying Chingari Coins for over a year and the adoption metrics have been astounding. Their familiarity with token mechanics predicts a smooth learning curve while switching to fully-blockchain tokenomics with more alternative monetisation opportunities coming to the platform.


GARI was introduced as a Social Token for the community of Chingari creators and viewers that will give them governance authority over the future platform developments through the Community Reserve and create a circular economy. Being distributed to the contributors for the platform value they created, GARI on the other hand benefits from the value of the network itself. Distribution of the tokens to the contributors will be done through a process of “GARI Mining” and contributors will be known as “Miners” 🙂


How does GARI Mining work?

A block of 50,000 GARIs will be created out of the community reserve every day. The community reserve has 250 million tokens and at 50,000/day, this mint will last for 14 years. However, to refill the community reserve, a percentage of GARI Tokens from the DAO treasury earned by the DAO via various in-app mechanics inside the Chingari app will be contributed back to the community reserve.


Any GARI Wallet user can become a GARI Miner and earn rewards for their contribution in the GARI ecosystem. In the second month of mining, one needs to be a GARI badge holder.


Just because you guys are our close friends, you all are entitled to the below-mentioned information that tells you the 2 best ways to mine $GARI 🙂


There are 2 types to mine $GARI: 


Login Rewards includes Login, Updating GARI Wallets and Completing KYC 


Contribution Rewards includes Video created, Video views received, Likes received, Shares received, Follows received, Comments received, Videos watched, Videos liked, Videos shared, Users followed, Videos commented, Time spent, Video watch time, Users referred, Audio total spoken, Audio total listen, Effects applied and Gifts sent.


So are you ready for the season of $GARI Mining?
