Your various channels have gained a large number of participants. However, engagement seems to be low. What are your plans for increasing engagement within these channels?

Great plan, I’m very excited, it’s just 2 months now and the channels are active, maybe not in the way people think. Many people want information and when you share it they keep track of it instead of commenting on it. Many people in the Dutch chats are reading the posts that has been shared. Also people are excited when the price will go up and when we get big news!

Keep up the great work and I’m very positive on the way that the team is working with this.

It is a very interesting and effective program. It has been about two months since the Persian group started and many enthusiastic people and Persian-speaking investors have joined it And they can be fully informed of the announcements and all the news about the secret of the network in Persian.So far, the Persian group has found 800 members in just two months, which is due to the impact of this work, which has gathered so many members only among Persian speakers, and you can be sure that more.

@Dalton Really excited to see the progress! I think this will dovetail nicely with some of the incredible work being done on the Secret Agent program revamp and rearchitecting. We’ll be able to better connect new community members with ongoing missions and opportunities :slight_smile:

It is remarkble to see the Network’s efforts to connect not just all blockchains but also all users,potential users and communities around the globe through its I.G.C.

The growing support from the International communities that’s keep on expanding to new locations and languages every month reafffirms that the Network is on track for greater things. And it is just the beginning.

I am greatful to be part of it and excited to see and contribute in what is more to come. And i am sure, it would not be less than awesome!

Hi Elie!

So it is very dependent channel to channel. We know that we want an agent in every chat as soon as we can, so we hope this helps due to questions being answered/moderating/having translated content and such. We also encourage agents to do events when they can to increase how much people are interacting with one another, and so that they continue to grow the channels.

Great work and the initiative to reach out to communities and build a following is not missed. This kind of thing hits at the heart of what it means to be active.
