What is Toncoin (TON)?

Toncoin (TON) is a decentralized layer-1 (L1) blockchain developed in 2018 by Telegram, an encrypted messaging platform. After its founding, the project was abandoned, and then taken over by the TON Foundation. It was renamed to “The Open Network,” from its previous name “Telegram Open Network.”

This project focuses on serving the average consumer, and is a community-driven blockchain with a flexible architecture. One of the reasons it stands out for some is its quick validation/processing of transactions per second (TPS). In September 2021, the network processed 55,000 TPS during a contest, setting a then-world record. However, its current TPS could be in the hundreds of thousands, or more.

Such a feature can allow the project to avoid performance losses while maintaining rapid growth, and remaining simultaneously environmentally friendly.

What to know about TON

Toncoin (formerly known as Gram) is the native cryptocurrency of the TON network. Since 2020, the technology has been developing thanks to a non-commercial group of supporters, and an independent community of enthusiasts referring to themselves as the TON Foundation. 

The project’s original goal was to integrate TON into a user-friendly application that empowers holders to buy, send, and store funds. Clients use TON to validate transactions, settle payments, and pay transaction fees. 

Toncoin uses the proof of stake (PoS) consensus mechanism to ensure network reliability and scalability. According to the website of the project, the platform “provides its users with secure, transparent, and fast payment services, facilitating transactions with minimal third-party applications and fees.” 

Also, the developers’ mission is “to build a full-fledged ecosystem with decentralized storage, decentralized services, a domain name system (DNS), an anonymous network, an instant payment platform, and fast/affordable transaction processing.
