What is Syndicate? - Syndicate is a web3 community chat app. While Syndicate functions similar to traditional chat apps like Discord or Slack, it also takes advantage of web3 technologies such as ERC20 tokens.

On Syndicate you can instantly create a chat room where members of the community must own a particular asset. For example, if I want to create a community where only ChainLink Whales (people that have at least 1000 LINK tokens) are allowed to enter. I can create a chat room with such parameters.
