Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in its beta stage. This means the application is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable within the app.
info
You can only customize community permissions using Status desktop.

In Status Communities, Owners can customize community permissions using tokens. Tokens are digital assets in a blockchain (such as the Ethereum blockchain), including virtual coins, collectibles and ENS domain names.

Once you set up token-based permissions, certain actions within your community are only available to users who own a particular token. For instance, Owners can restrict access to their community or delegate admin functions to specific token holders.

info
In Status, your tokens are securely stored in your Status Wallet.

    Who holds
    option, the permission isn't bound to a token. This option only applies to channel-level permissions.

    operator instead, create additional permissions.
