Revived Blockchain Project
The open-source TON blockchain’s native currency is called the TON coin. The initials TON stood for Telegram Open Network. The Durov brothers, who founded Telegram Messenger, created it in 2018. But in 2020, Telegram gave up on the endeavour. Later, it was transferred to the Open TON Foundation, which has developed ever since. The TON blockchain has undergone numerous changes over the last few months. The @wallet bot, which facilitates P2P cryptocurrency transactions directly from Telegram chats, received the most recent modifications on August 19, according to an announcement from the TON Foundation. Telegram also launched a tokenised username marketplace based on the TON blockchain. On the Flipside
In 2018, Telegram’s TON Initial Coin Offering raised nearly $1.7 billion from the sale of GRAM tokens. As a result, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) took a strong stance on TON due to its regulatory actions. To pay the SEC fees, the company had to return $1.2 billion to investors and pay $18.5 million in penalties.
