PravApp project is a plan to get a lot of people to invest small amounts to run an interoperable messaging service that is easier to join and discover contacts.
The prav project wants to offer this service under a Multi State Cooperative Society in India, and they need 50 members each from at least two Indian states.
Prav’s Mastodon handle summarized the project very well:
Imagine there are two dining mess (where students eat) in your college, one in which the menu is decided by the administration, and the other one in which the menu is decided by the students. The administration mess is under their policies over which students have no control, and the menu along with any other policies can be changed anytime without asking students, whereas every decision in the student mess is taken collectively by students.
Which one would you prefer as a student?
