TON’s blockchain operating system is about to be released publicly.
This has been reported by a Russian source, according to which the developers of the TON platform are about to publish their operating system to run services on its blockchain using any device and any cryptocurrency.
Already a month ago the hypothesis was made that the development and release of TON would continue despite the block imposed by the American SEC following the Telegram ICO, since TON is actually a decentralized and open-source project over which the SEC has no authority.
What is TON OS?
As a result, the development of the Gram token, and that of the TON blockchain, have been separated so that they can proceed on two different tracks. The one that could be released should be the TON OS App, which is the operating system of the TON blockchain platform.
The TON Labs website explains that TON OS is an end-to-end open-source infrastructure that will allow developers and users to work with the TON blockchain.
Applications for installing the operating system have already been developed and will soon be available for use.
TON OS will not be an alternative to existing operating systems but will be a specific component that will allow devices to use TON applications.
In this scenario, the blockchain is seen as the technological basis to manage tokens and wallets, while TON OS is seen to create, manage and use applications based on this blockchain.
The goal is that many innovative applications based on TON OS can be developed, for example in the field of finance or voting, to solve problems such as corruption, efficiency or citizen involvement through decentralized solutions.
In other words, it seems a kind of alternative to the Ethereum ecosystem, although in the absence of more specific details it is difficult to make comparisons.
Another analogy has been made with the Codius protocol launched by the developers of Ripple, which allows, among other things, to launch decentralized applications. Java is also cited as an example, although Java is not centralized at all.
One of the most important aspects, however, is that it won’t need the Gram token to work, and this makes its release possible even if the Gram project is currently blocked.
