Saturday, March 19, 2022 — India’s fastest-growing short-video app, Chingari, has joined World Blockchain Summit Dubai 2022 as the presenting sponsor. The 22nd global edition of World Blockchain Summit will be held on March 23 to 24. As one of the biggest gatherings of elite global crypto and blockchain leaders and enthusiasts, the mega-event is taking place at the Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai. 

Launched in 2018 and powered by crypto, Chingari entertains over 130 million users across India and has videos in more than 15 languages.
