Notable progress has already been made within the Freechat ecosystem. Beyond the initial online chat and community operation modules, the platform has successfully launched features such as the creator plan, short video module, and community square.
This expansion aims to provide users with a multifaceted experience while ensuring the fundamental characteristics of Web3 – an open, free and safe social space.

“Next, we will provide incentive services for creators of graphics, text, videos and other content through the Creator Incentive Program.
