Pavel Durov announced the launch of the blockchain marketplace in Telegram
The founder of Telegram Pavel Durov announced the possible launch of the market for the Ton blockchain for the sale of users, links to channels and groups in the messenger.
He noted that “impressed” by the recently conducted by the Ton team for the sale of domain names. Wallet.Ton sold for 215 250 Toncoin (~ $ 260,000), while Casino.ton – for ~ $ 244,000, he emphasized.
“Imagine how successful Telegram can be with its 700 million users, if we put up for auction reserved user identifiers, links to channels and groups. In addition to millions of catchy addresses like @storm or @royal, all four -book names can be available for sale (@Bank, @club, @game, @gift, etc.D.) “, – Durov believes.
On the new platform, owners of the names will be able to transfer them to interested parties in protected transactions on the blockchain through “similar to NFT smart contracts,” the entrepreneur explained.
According to him, subsequently other elements of the messenger ecosystem may appear on the marketplace, including channels, emoji and stickers.
“When it comes to scalability and speed, Ton probably has the best technology for the implementation of such decentralized sales,” said Durov.
He recalled that it was the Telegram team that created the Ton smart contract language. This was one of the reasons why the messenger decided to test the network as a database for a trading platform.
“Let’s see if we can add a little Web3 to Telegram in the coming weeks,” Durov concluded.
Recall that in May 2020, he announced the closure of the Telegram Open Network (Ton) project due to a trial of the US Securities and Exchange Commission and the prohibition on the distribution of tokens.
After the closing of Ton, several independent teams continued to work on blockchain based on https://gagarin.news/ project code. Among them are Free Ton (renamed Evescale), a Chinese project from Ton Community and Newton.
The latter in May 2020 launched the Newton Blockchain test network. In August 2021, the TON team was transferred by the Ton domain.Org and Github-Ro-Poster Project, which changed the name to The Open Network.
