Telegram Launches A New Programming Language For TON Network
Telegram, Privacy-focused encrypted instant messaging service creates a new programming language for its Telegram Open Network (TON) as per a post on the project’s Telegram channel published on May 23.
Dubbed as Fift, the new language is specifically designed for developing and managing TON blockchain smart contracts and to interact with the TON Virtual Machine (TVM).
The TVM will execute smart contract code in the TON blockchain that in turn will support all operations required to parse incoming messages and persistent data, further to create new messages and modify persistent data. The post provides a brief overview of Fift including the basics about the language and TON-specific operations.
