Telegram intends to use its experience developing encrypted data storage systems to create the Telegram Open Network (TON). TON is an ultra-fast, scalable and inherently secure blockchain technology project that is aimed at reducing transaction times and provide storage and service hosting services to its clients. Its user-friendly and service-provider friendly interface combined with its decentralized multi-blockchain architecture will revolutionize the way payments are made in the financial industry. This will solve some of the current financial problems such as slow transaction times, transaction costs and network bandwidth.
- Telegram is already an established messaging platform around the world and hence has the technical expertise to develop a powerful blockchain system for the financial industry.
- The Telegram Open Network is intended to host a homegrown cryptocurrency and other decentralized applications.
- Telegram’s native cryptocurrency Gram will give its payment system independence from interference by government.
