Telegram chose TON as the underlying blockchain for the advertising platform under development.
Telegram messenger has named The Open Network (TON) – the former Telegram Open Network – the underlying blockchain for its future trading platform. Simply put, the TON token can be used to pay for advertising through the upcoming Telegram branded marketplace.
Pavel Durov, founder of VK and Telegram, comments:
When it comes to scalability and speed, TON probably has the best technology to accommodate such decentralized sales. Our team can write bulletproof smart contracts for TON (since we invented its smart contract language), so we tend to try TON as the underlying blockchain for our future marketplace. Let’s see if we can add a bit of Web 3.0 to Telegram in the coming weeks.
