Can you start us off with brief description about Taki App and its major mission?

> Sakina Arsiwala:

Taki mission is simple — we want to empower users to share in the economic gains of social media. Think about it — we all spend so much time on social media. We are all creators . consumers. Your fame and influence though is tied to the platform. We make the revenue for the platform but don’t share in it.

> Sakina Arsiwala:

We obviously get lot of value and fun from social media. My hope is with tokenization, we can convert that into some ownership as well

> Sakina Arsiwala:

> Miss Futuristi:

Great

Wastage of time in social media can be a kind of monetised..😅

> Sakina Arsiwala: lol yeah

1. TomKantly

taki said on his website that he wants to add features that benefit the content and also build wealth. What differences can we observe in the Beta version compared to the official version speaking in terms of social functions? How long will the Beta version be on the market?

> Sakina Arsiwala:

Thanks for the question. So we are constantly iterating and building new features and launcing. We are less than 1 year old, but crossed over 800000 users. For us beta is for testing different ideas and taking the best ones and building on top of those

> Sakina Arsiwala:

we will continue to iterate

> Sakina Arsiwala:

Gmail / Google mail was in beta for 10 years ( 😁 ) NOT our plan

> Sakina Arsiwala:

in all seriousness, we feel that we will continue to build on top of the existing feautres and keep improving.

> Sakina Arsiwala:

come join us and see how it develops

> Sakina Arsiwala:

> Miss Futuristi:

🙌

> Miss Futuristi:

> Miss Futuristi: 3. PUPU654

I saw that you wanted to offer security tools that would draw in additional content producers. How much should a content producer pay Taki to use these tools, and what would be an ideal tool to help them in their work? Is using this free or charged?

> Sakina Arsiwala:

We are working closely with creators and want to build a platform that helps them. Right now ,we are building social media like tools so they can build their brands

> Sakina Arsiwala:

nothing is paid at the moment. We could do paid tools if they are specialized requests.

What does the “

@TakiApp

“name stand for? There are interesting stories behind every successful project, and of course you have to work hard ever day. Can you share one of these interesting stories with us?

> Miss Futuristi: interesting one 😁

> Sakina Arsiwala:

Taki is just a fun name that my cofounder Kevin Chou and i liked. It has funny meanings in various indian languages and others and is light hearted.

> Sakina Arsiwala:

some interesting stories. oh boy

> Miss Futuristi:

😆

> Sakina Arsiwala:

One crazy story is in the early days (6 months ago) we were worried about if we will get growth. So one day we reminded our user base that you can invite your friedns and you have 5 invites each. I got a call within 2 hours that our growth had gone so fast that we were having server issues — later we had to shut down invites. We grew 5X in 24 hours.

> Sakina Arsiwala:

> Miss Futuristi: lmao

> Miss Futuristi:

okay its time for the last one

> Miss Futuristi:

5. CD7978

Can you name a few remarkable characteristics of @takiapp

that sets it apart from the Plethori of market competitors? What is the competitive strength/advantage of your platform in which you have the most faith in to disrupt the existing financial and traditional systems?

> Sakina Arsiwala:

1. Influence ownership for creators- if brands like Nike can own their brand and take it anywhere — why should an influencer not do the same???? 2. Strong strong strong community — we have 100, 000’s of users engaging everday and HELPING eachother. 3. Skilled / dedicated ethical team — who are in it for the long run.

> Sakina Arsiwala: This is why we will win

> Sakina Arsiwala:

and build something of value in the long run

> Sakina Arsiwala:

> Miss Futuristi: perfectly done

> Miss Futuristi: this ends

> Miss Futuristi: twitter part

> Miss Futuristi:

Jean Pierre Hernández 🛸 👽 I have been taking a look at the statistics of the Taki ecosystem in general, and without a doubt it is incredible to be able to appreciate such optimal growth on the part of Taki, especially in the midst of a bear market that has been so present practically so far in 2022, therefore, I would like to know what kind of strategies and methodologies you have clear to implement to guarantee a sustainable and organic growth in the

medium and long term, and how will you ensure that this can work? Sakina Arsiwala

> Sakina Arsiwala:

Thank you We are seeing amazing growth. We rely on our exising community for growth. There is a referral program that gives you some Taki to invite others. Most users do it though because it helps the platform. We will continue to invest in creators and help them build community on platform
