Join a Status Community

Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in beta. This means the app is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable in the app.

A Status Community is a virtual space for like-minded people to exchange ideas and collaborate.

There are different types of communities in Status, and how you join them can be different. Check out About the different types of Status Communities for more details.

  • The aggregated balance of the shared addresses must meet the token requirements of the community or the management role you are to take.
  • After you send a request to join a community, you may become a member immediately, or you need to wait until the owner accepts you if the community requires join approval.
  • For communities that require join approval, you can view your request status or cancel your join request on the community page.
  • Status notifies you when the community owner accepts or rejects you.
  • If the community owner rejects you, you can send a new join request.

When you join a community, you share one or more of your Status Wallet addresses. This action confirms you have the tokens for token-gated communities or channels and lets you participate in airdrops or fulfil a management role.

No matter which type of community you want to join, you must share at least one Wallet account address (or address, for short) with the community control node. If you have only one address, it's automatically selected when joining the community and you can't unselect this address.

The addresses you share are stored in the community control node and never revealed to the community owner or members. However, the community owner might discover the address and owner indirectly.

Consider creating dedicated addresses for specific communities to protect your security and privacy.

To join token-gated communities, you must hold the required tokens by buying crypto or receiving them from others.
