As recently announced on the dedicated channel, the Telegram blockchain, TON, will be launched at the end of October 2019.

After raising $1.7 billion from investors, some of whom are established companies within Silicon Valley, the ambitions of the messaging platform, a direct competitor of WhatsApp, are very high.

In addition to the news regarding the launch of the blockchain, according to the post, TON investors will receive the public keys by October 16th. These will be required to receive the Gram tokens.

But there is more: the code of the TON blockchain and the software for the generation of keys have been published on GitHub.

The source, as we said, is TON Board, a private channel created by investors and for investors of the Telegram Open Network and for future holders of the Gram token, which is why this is the place for receiving the latest news and updates about TON.

Meanwhile, Coinbase is evaluating Gram’s listing on its exchange, as stated in a blog article dated late September 2019.

TON will be compatible with the Ethereum blockchain in order for smart contracts to integrate with TON. This is made possible also thanks to the fact that both blockchains have been developed with the Solidity programming language.

Moreover, as announced today, Crypterium has started the pre-sale of the Gram token. The payment methods accepted are different and obviously in cryptocurrencies: bitcoin (BTC), USD Coin (USDC) and CRPT, the native token of Crypterium.

The value of the Gram token will be set day by day. Gram’s initial price is €3.50.
