The TON Blockchain Platform Launched Without Pavel Durov And Telegram
The developers of the TON blockchain platform launched it under a different name and with their own cryptocurrency. They claim that telegram founder Pavel Durov, who was banned from issuing cryptocurrency by the US authorities, did not participate in the launch.
The Free TON Community (consisting of developers and potential TON users) has launched the Free TON blockchain platform. Instead of Gram, project participants will be given free tokens called TON. This should be the message of the community that entered the RBC.
Community members signed the "Declaration on decentralization." A total of 5 billion TONS will be released, one of the community members, technical Director of TON Labs Dmitry Goroshevsky, told RBC. Of this amount, partners and network users will receive 85% for free, developers — 10%, and validators — 5% (they will be responsible for confirming users ' transactions). "User" 85% will be distributed according to the referral program-TON that can be obtained for attracting new users to the blockchain platform.
According to the Declaration, TON tokens give the right to participate in the discussion of the development and management strategy of the blockchain platform.
