Telegram Messaging App Founder

The Telegram app is a multi-platform messaging service. Pavel Durov is a Russian entrepreneur who founded the app in 2013.

Users can create bots to perform functions on the Telegram. The encrypted services allow investors to exchange cryptocurrencies and make payments to friends.  Currently, more than 800,000 users are using the Ton bot, says the TON Foundation. We hope to make it easy for users to send Toncoin, just like sending a text message say authorities from the Foundation.

In June 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged Telegram Group Inc. to resolve its unregistered offering of Grams, its digital token. The company had to repay around $1.2 billion to its investors.

The TON Foundation helped to keep the project alive after being shut in August 2020. TON received $250 million as an ecosystem fund. Huobi and Kucoin are their backers. Kilo Fund, Orbs, and 3 Commas Capitals have lent a supporting hand to support the fund.

Founder Durov says that the Toncoin is a new project independent of Telegram. It is a blockchain that offers verified payment services, says Durov.
