Gab's Parallel Economy Is Growing

Gab's Parallel Economy Is Growing

Gab - the free speech alternative social media platform - is growing its Christian parallel economy. CEO Andrew Torba just sent out a fresh email detailing recent progress.

He reveals that here are now over 3,700 businesses in Gab's Parallel Economy. 

On the Gab Marketplace there are over 5,000 active listings of products for sale with everything from books to cars and even houses! Many businesses have grown in the Parallel Economy and many more have actually been started on Gab. The platform has a growing ecosystem of business owners engaging in commerce, networking, and growth with people on Gab who share their values. 

Mr. Torba's message continues: "As many of you know Gab operates on cash flow. We don't have some big hedge fund or billionaire backing us. We are building our business the old fashioned way by keeping our costs low and generating revenue by providing value. We also own and manage our own server infrastructure so that we do not need to use Big Tech cloud services like Amazon AWS. We've invested heavily this year into expanding our hardware and data center capacity, but we need to ramp up these efforts even more to prepare for the 2022 midterm election, which we expect to drive a significant amount of traffic and growth for Gab. 

"In the coming weeks we will also be opening up Gab TV, our YouTube alternative, for all users to upload to. For the past year and a half Gab TV uploading has been strictly limited to GabPRO users only mainly due to the cost of hosting large video files at scale. We are looking to purchase additional servers and a large amount of hard drive storage for this effort, which we believe is crucial for Gab's continued growth. 

"We need your help in order to do this. Servers and hard drives are incredibly expensive. If you would like to contribute to our efforts in expanding our server infrastructure please consider upgrading to GabPRO, making a purchase from the Gab Shop, making a donation, or running Gab Ads for your business."
