In Status Communities, you have access to dedicated spaces called channels. Channels bring the right people and information together for any project or topic. A channel conversation focuses on specific topics, and you can join and leave the conversation anytime.
As a community owner, you can use channels to break down a large community into smaller, more focused sub-groups. With Status, you can configure channel permissions based on token ownership. For example, you can make an open channel token-gated or view-only by only allowing holders of specific tokens to join or post.
All members in a Status Community can browse and join open channels. For token-gated channels, you must meet the token requirements to join the channel. To maintain access to token-gated channels, hold the required tokens at all times.
The #general channel is created by default when you create a community. You can use this channel for various purposes, including sharing news, discussing community policies and events or making announcements.
