Source codes and documentation for the Telegram Open Network blockchain platform

in: News

Telegram team sent investors another letter about the development of the blockchain platform.

The summary of the letter can be described as follows:

  1. Closed network testing with a selected group of developers was successful. The blockchain has confirmed in practice the previously stated in TON Whitepaper characteristics of transaction speed.
  2. Now we turn to the open testing phase for everyone. Testnet and platform code are published for public testing and discussion.
  3. The expected launch date of the TON blockchain platform is now scheduled for Q3 2019.

Recall that at the end of March this year, the Telegram team also sent a letter to investors. It said that the testnet TON launch is postponed to mid-April, and will be private, only with selected third-party teams.

In mid-April, one of those selected developers reported that each team was able to configure the TON node (decentralized server) and made sure of the claimed speed of transactions within the network.

After previous transferred open accessed TON testnet launches (at the end of 2018 and at the beginning of 2019), it seems that the Telegram Open Network team got into a rut and now really able to execute the promised launch of the blockchain platform in the 3rd quarter of 2019.

It’s important to mention the fact that TON has already sent GRAM tokens to Asian exchanges, such as Binance, Huobi and OKEx.
We believe that this will also help Telegram messenger to attract a new Asian audience thanks to the hype around TON blockchain.

Simultaneously with the letter to investors, the TON team posted the documentation and source codes of the testnet network. At the moment, anyone can try to run their own TON node and inform the developers about the found problems.
