Pavel Durov intends to deeply integrate the TON cryptocurrency into Telegram

The founder of the messenger was admired by the success of the TON Foundation and shared his opinion that having a Telegram user base, the cryptocurrency could achieve more.

Durov described scenarios such as the transfer of @username's using smart contracts in cryptocurrency, as well as the creation of stickers and emojis, which would form a market based on TON.

In 2020, the US Securities Commission banned the issuance of the TON cryptocurrency. After that, Telegram officially disowned the platform, and stopped participating in its development.

Since then, the TON Foundation has been organized, which officially has no ties to Telegram, although it is apparently in close alliance with the messenger team. The cryptocurrency from this organization is positioned as independent of Telegram and created by the community of enthusiasts in order to circumvent the prohibitions of the American regulator. Telegram intends to integrate TON into its application in such a way that it looks like the TON team independently brings its services to the messenger in a partner way.

Judging by the reaction of users to the post, most do not welcome the introduction of elements of the "Web3" philosophy into Telegram. Earlier it was already proposed to integrate NFT into the messenger, to which the audience of the messenger also reacted negatively.

TON was an original attempt to monetize Telegram. Given that the messenger now has an advertising platform and a paid subscription, it's hard to say how ready Pavel Durov is to go against the interests of users for the sake of another source of income.

Integration of the TON wallet into the Telegram client

Thanks to WebApp bots, the @wallet service has implemented the integration of the wallet into the attachments of Telegram clients.

Now you can transfer Toncoin cryptocurrency to users directly from the messenger. Without long wallet addresses, commissions and waiting for transaction confirmation.

We already wrote earlier that probably the entire Web bot platform was created specifically for the integration of TON Coin with Telegram.

2022-04-05 14:55:09 The TON investor lost the lawsuit against Telegram - he demanded to return $280 thousand, and now he must pay $700 thousand

In court, the plaintiff insisted that he had “hurriedly” decided to invest in TON and did not receive documents listing the risks from Telegram. The arbitration decided that Chuprin either got acquainted with these documents, because they were freely available, or "understood all the risks, and it did not bother him." Also, in the signed agreement on the purchase of the Gram cryptocurrency, it is indicated that he has read the information about the risks.

The court concluded that Zotobi "obviously would have been better off accepting Telegram's alternative offer" for a loan. But Zotobi "wasn't sure about the safety of the money."

The court rejected all Zotobi's claims and demanded to cover Telegram's legal costs for $700,000 and court costs for £55.9 thousand.

2022-01-20 21:31:48 New services from TON COIN and possible integration into Telegram

The team that develops the Toncoin cryptocurrency promises to introduce several new services by the end of 2022 - for storing files, bypassing locks, transferring funds, etc. These services were supposed to become part of Durov's TON blockchain project.

A source close to the Telegram team confirmed to Telegram Info that the messenger team does not rule out the possibility of integrating the aforementioned services into Telegram if they are launched.

Earlier, Durov raised the cost of Toncoin by almost 50% by supporting the developers of the altcoin. In January 2022, its price jumped again thanks to Morgenstern. The artist invested 10 million rubles in cryptocurrency.

According to the plans, the TON Payments payment system will be launched first, after that - a service for bypassing TON Proxy locks, TON Storage, an analogue of the anonymous Tor network - TON Sites and other products, Oleg Andreev, developer of the Tonkeeper crypto wallet, told Forbes.

In the near future, Andrey Rogozov, Vice President for Social Platforms of VK, should join the TON Foundation.

2021-12-23 13:30:10 Pavel Durov wishes best to the maintainers of the Toncoin project

The founder of Telegram and the TON project, Pavel Durov, explained what happened to TON after the Telegram team abandoned the project, cut any relations and disowned it.

In the post, Pavel tells how he hoped other developers will keep developing the project and how Telegram Contest champions took the project to keep working on it, by rebranding it as Toncoin. He insisted again that Telegram is not related to Toncoin by any means, but he still hopes it will succeed.

2021-08-03 16:12:41 Domain TON.ORG and the TON project repository was transferred to the open source developers community

The Telegram team agreed to transfer the domain ton.org and the repository to open-source to the developer community in response to their open letter:

«We are glad to see the high level of continued interest from the community to support and develop the TON technology.

Since Telegram itself no longer has any involvement in the project and we no longer use related resources, we are therefore ready to consider their transfer to a representative of the community to be utilized going forward.
», — TON team wrote in GitHub.

At the address ton.org there is already new information from The Open Network team and an announcement.

Previously, the community that has now taken over the management of the domain and repository was called Newton, now it is called The Open Network. Developers from different countries have joined together to continue working on the technology.

In May, the testnet2 test network became the main one.

2021-05-24 15:03:02 Da Vinci Capital announced a lawsuit against Telegram in London
⁠⁠⁠⁠
«Our foundation received this offer about 24 hours before the deadline, and many of our investors simply didn't get a physical opportunity to analyze the documents and, accordingly, to receive an adequate return on the investments that were made», - said Oleg Horniko.

The investors in the Da Vinci Capital Foundation claimed damages of several tens of millions of dollars for a failed project. Then the RBC source close to Telegram reported that investors were asking for $20 million, and according to Skadden lawyers in London representing Telegram interests, such claims had little chance of success, «since the contract clearly covered both costs and risks».

2021-04-12 14:48:37 Telegram started returning funds to TON investors who decided to don't take money back immediately

Telegram started paying out funds to TON blockchain platform investors who didn't take money back after the platform failed, but waited a year to take 110% of their investment, according to two investors from The Bell article [ru]. A part of the investors already received their money, while other received letters stating the payouts already started.

To return funds to the investors who decided to wait, Telegram raised over $1B in March by selling bonds to select investors.

2021-03-02 10:32:34 TON investors demanded from Durov to return tens of millions of dollars

Investors of the Da Vinci Capital fund demanded that Pavel Durov return tens of millions of dollars to them for the failed project of the Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain platform and at the end of February notified him of their intention to file a corresponding claim. Forbes writes about this with reference to a source familiar with the investors involved in the class action lawsuit.

A Telegram source close to the company's top management confirmed the receipt of such a letter, but it indicated a different amount of claims - $ 20 million. In case of refusal, investors will go to court in London within two weeks, "then other jurisdictions will follow."
