LYKA is a digital platform that’s becoming more and more popular in the Philippines these days. Even famous personalities like Billy Crawford, Bella Padilla, Ivana Alawi, Khalil Ramos, and Liza Soberano have been using the social app as a way to connect with their fans.
Aside from being a social media app, LYKA is also an e-commerce platform. Here’s how it works: for every picture or video that you share, every message that you send, and every post that you “rate,” you get a reward. This reward comes in the form of LYKA Gems, which you can use to buy different kinds of items. Each LYKA Gem is equivalent to Php 1.
