We are excited to announce that Chingari, one of the world's fastest-growing on-chain social apps, is going xChain powered by Wormhole. The social media platform is expanding to the Aptos Network, where it aims to benefit from Aptos’ scalability, security, and speed. A platform as significant as Chingari going cross-chain offers a tremendous opportunity to advance social media and Web3.
Chingari is a vibrant social platform that entertains millions of users worldwide with short-form video content in over 15 languages. The app has already been downloaded more than 175 million times on the Google Play Store and ranks among the top 20 most downloaded apps worldwide. Chingari is powered by the GARI network and aims to enable content creators to monetize their videos using its native $GARI token.
By leveraging Wormhole's messaging protocol and bridging its native token to Aptos (while staying native to Solana) Chingari aims to significantly expand its social token ecosystem, while providing a hassle-free user experience and the following advantages:
Users who onboard to Chingari will not experience forced migrations in the Chingari app. Instead, the Gari Network's core contributors will utilize Wormhole’s token bridge to transfer the required community and ecosystem emissions, powering the soon-to-come Aptos-backed Gari wallet.
As mentioned above, by utilizing Wormhole to reach new markets, Chingari is signifying a new era for both social media and the Web3 ecosystem. When the Aptos-backed Gari wallet goes live in May, creators and power users will be able to monetize their content more effectively.

Wormhole is - and always has been - open source: see our Github for more.
If you’re new to Wormhole, here’s what you need to know:
Wormhole is an interoperability protocol that allows projects to build on top of its generic message-passing layer. Currently, it connects to more than 20 high-level blockchains. Wormhole functions by emitting messages from the source chain that are observed and verified by validators in the Guardian network. After verification, relayers optionally submit these messages to a target chain for processing. This message-passing primitive enables xChain (cross-chain) functionality: users interact with xDapps (xChain dApps) to transfer xAssets (xChain assets) between networks or access their xData (xChain data) to provide them services on their current network.
