- Crypto / Web3
- BNB Chain
- DAO / Community
To be recognized as a highly credible and innovative platform in building a more efficient and safe ecosystem for the Web3 community.
Chainnels was inspired by the different yet segregated communities in the crypto space and the variety of Fungible and Non-Fungible Tokens(NFT) out there.
One day, the team sat down and discussed what makes a good community and we all came to the same conclusion: a space where project owners and token holders could discuss with the builders of the project about their next update and the future of the project.
We researched many different communities and found that a lot of them are segregated and more than half are filled with either bots or mixed in with scammers and fake socials trying to steal their hard-earned money.
It is at that moment we decided to build Chainnels.
What it does
Chainnels is the Ultimate native Web3 Social Platform that automatically onboards all your Fungible and NFTs into a channel of its own. Forget about searching for the right channel as it is brought to you as long as you own the NFT or the token of that particular project.
Project owners themselves are able to moderate these channels by setting a minimum threshold for members to access the exclusive channels. If you just want to get to know the project, users are also able to search for the token that is available and access the public channel.
Chainnels also has a Discover section for people who are new to the Web3 world. In this section, users are able to keep up-to-date with latest crypto news, follow trending fungible and NFTs and check out projects or news that we find informative in the Spotlight section.
Asides from just checking out trending projects, users are also able to join the public channel directly and see the project's rating to give them a sense of what kind of community they will be participating in.
How we built it
We built Chainnels Native Web3 Social platform from the ground up using several libraries and technologies.
For the cross-platform app, we the used following libraries:
Wallet Connect Secure Storage
Flutter Secure Storage
Wallet Connect Flutter
Ethereum Signature Utility
We built 5 different smart contracts to handle the SocialFi aspect of Chainnels including for memberships, NFT staking and token emissions.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest challenge we faced thus far is the complying with Apple App store and Google Playstore as both of these have restrictions when it comes to blockchain apps. Even with these challenges, we are able to release our beta app and pending approval to release the full version on both platforms.
What we learned
In our journey into creating this app, we have learned that there are so many undervalued projects out there that are gems in the rough. Given time we believe these communities will require a space where they can chat directly with project owners without the fear of being scammed along the way.
What's next for Chainnels
As we grow Chainnels, we will be including more support for known blockchains such as Binance, Polygon, Avalanche, and many more!
