    Over the past two years, DeBox has committed itself to serving the Web3 community, generating over 10 million posts and attracting more than 690,000 mobile users. The platform offers a range of features such as the formation and governance of DAOs, networking and social trading opportunities, the setup of decentralized identifier (DID)-based profiles and NFT avatars, and ability to earn tokens for publishing content, among others.

    DeBox also offers a token swap solution, DeSwap, which allows users to swap tokens across seven supported blockchain networks. These include Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, Optimism, Arbitrum, zkSync Era and Avalanche.
