Telegram Finally Releases Code for Its $1.7 Billion TON Blockchain
Telegram’s blockchain project, TON, has entered the last preparation stage before going live.
The code for running a blockchain node was released on the test network portal late Friday. Now developers and community members interested in the messaging app provider’s blockchain can start kicking the tires of a full node, a validator node and the blockchain explorer.
The release had been previously scheduled for Sept. 1, according to the sources familiar with the project’s progress, but was delayed a few days for unclear reasons.
