“When Telegram said goodbye to TON last year, I expressed the hope that future generations of developers would one day carry on with our vision of a mass-market blockchain platform.
So I was inspired to see the champions of Telegram’s coding contests continue developing the open TON project, which they rebranded to Toncoin… I wish its team the same success. Coupled with the right go-to-market strategy, they have all they need to build something epic.”
