TON Labs, a startup that helped Telegram run the test network for the Telegram Open Network (TON), launched its own version of the blockchain Thursday, with the support of professional validators.
To distinguish itself from the original TON project, this forked version is named Free TON, and its tokens are called “ton crystals,” not “grams,” as Telegram’s were dubbed.
Telegram was not involved in the launch, according to Alexander Filatov, CEO of TON Labs.
Some of the validators came from the TON Community Foundation (TCF), also supported by TON Labs.
However, Filatov said “TCF didn’t become a truly international movement,” and thus didn’t succeed in leading the blockchain launch.
