Cryptocurrencies and other blockchain-based technologies have the potential
to make the world more secure and self-governed. owever to this day
no consensus-backed currency has been able to appeal to the mass market
and reach mainstream adoption.
his paper outlines a vision for a new cryptocurrency and an ecosystem capable of meeting the
needs of hundreds of millions of consumers including  million elegram users.
aunching in  ­ this cryptocurrency will be based on multi-blockchain Proof-of-€take system —
ƒ„ …Telegram Open Network, after 2021 The Open Network† — designed to host a new generation
of cryptocurrencies and decentrali‡ed applications.
The protocol and other components of TON are described in detail in the Technical White Paper, while this document focuses
on a general overview of the proposed technolog and its uses
Problem Statement
ˆitcoin has established itself as the «digital gold» and Ethereum has proved to be an efficient
platform for token crowd sales. owever there is no current standard cryptocurrency used for the
regular e‹change of value in the daily lives of ordinary people. he blockchain ecosystem needs
a decentrali‡ed counterpart to everyday money — a truly mass-market cryptocurrency.
Œ Ž Œ

Despite their revolutionary potential, existing cryptocurrencies lack the qualities required to attract
the mass consumer. There are three main hurdles in today’s environments:
The established blockchain networks — Bitcoin and Ethereum — play important
roles in the ecosystem, but don’t have the capacity to replace VISA or Mastercard.
In their current architecture they are limited to a maximum of only 7 transactions
per second for Bitcoin and 15 transactions per second for Ethereum, resulting
in insufficient speeds and higher transaction costs.
Regular users starting to engage with Bitcoin and similar technologies often get
confused when trying to buy, store, and send their coins.
The market of goods and services that can be bought with cryptocurrencies
is limited, and the demand for crypto-assets comes mainly from investors,
not consumers.

The current state of blockchain technology resembles automobile design in 1870: it is promising and
praised by enthusiasts, but inefficient and too complicated to appeal to the mass consumer. As a
result, no cryptocurrency or decentralized platform has gone truly mainstream, and centralized
solutions continue to dominate the market.
Outline of the Vision
Exchanging value should be as easy as exchanging information, and blockchain technology offers
the ideal foundation to make this a reality. To reach mainstream adoption, a cryptocurrency —
and its underlying blockchain design and ecosystem — requires:
Speed and scalability that allows for processing millions of transactions per
second and accommodating hundreds of millions of active users and millions
of applications.
Intuitive user interfaces that enable an average user to easily buy, store,
and transfer value, as well as use decentralized apps in a natural way.
An engaged user base that serves as the pre-existing critical mass necessary
for the ecosystem to grow and eventually become adopted by hundreds of millions
of users.
4 / 23

Telegram is uniquely positioned to establish the first mass-market cryptocurrency
by providing a platform that combines these properties.
Telegram will use its expertise in encrypted distributed data storage to create TON, a fast and
inherently scalable multi-blockchain architecture. TON can be regarded as a decentralized
supercomputer and value transfer system. By combining minimum transaction time with maximum
security, TON can become a VISA/Mastercard alternative for the new decentralized economy.
The Telegram Team will rely on its 10-year experience in building user-friendly interfaces for
tens of millions to create light wallets, exchanges, and identification services that will allow users
to get on board with cryptocurrencies in an intuitive way.
Integrated into Telegram applications, the TON wallet will become
the world’s most adopted cryptocurrency wallet.
Telegram will leverage its existing ecosystem of communities, developers, publishers, payment
providers, and merchants to drive demand and value for TON cryptocurrency. A whole new
economy saturated with goods and services sold for cryptocurrency will be born — similar
to WeChat’s fiat-based marketplace, but not confined to a centralized service.
A Brief History of Telegram
Telegram was founded in 2013 by libertarians to preserve freedom through encryption. The
project has declared not-for-profit goals and remains independent and self-funded. Like
Wikipedia, which for years has been a role model for the Telegram founders , Telegram has
chosen a .org domain to emphasize its non-commercial status.
The physical infrastructure of Telegram reflects its founders’ belief in larger decentralization.
Telegram deploys a distributed server infrastructure to synchronize encrypted data across multiple
independent server clusters spread across different continents and jurisdictions.
The resulting combination of speed, encryption, and independence attracted millions of users
within a few months after the project’s launch in 2013. Telegram kept evolving with an average
of 12 major updates a year. By February 2016, it had 100 million monthly active users and was
delivering 15 billion messages daily.

In October 2017, Telegram reached 170 million monthly users, delivering 70 billion messages every
day.3 At least 500 000 new users join Telegram daily. At this rate, the service is expected to hit
200 million monthly users in Q1 2018. These users can provide the required critical mass to push
cryptocurrencies towards widespread adoption.
3. Push notifications delivered on iOS and Android devices daily.

Open Network (TON)
ˆecause taking cryptocurrencies mainstream in  ­ would not be possible using the
e‹isting blockchain platforms4 elegram co-founder ‘r. „ikolai ‘urov set out to find
a novel solution to meet the speed and scalability re’uired for mass adoption. is
research resulted in the design for the elegram ƒpen „etwork — a fast and secure
blockchain and network pro“ect.
TON Blockchain
”t the core of the platform is the ƒ„ ˆlockchain — a scalable and fle‹ible blockchain architecture
that consists of a master chain and up to  accompanying blockchains. ˆelow are some notable
design choices that allow the ƒ„ ˆlockchain to process millions of transactions per second.
Infinite Sharding Paradigm
o achieve scalability ƒ„ has built-in support for sharding– ƒ„ blockchains can
automatically split and merge to accommodate changes in load. his means that new blocks
are always generated ’uickly and the absence of long ’ueues helps keep transaction costs
low even if some of the services using the platform become massively popular.

™. €ee section  in the echnical ˜hite Paper.
š Ž Œ

Instant Hypercube Routing
ƒ„ blockchains use smart routing mechanisms to ensure that transactions between any two
blockchains will always be processed swiftly regardless of the si‡e of the system. he time
needed to pass information between ƒ„ blockchains grows logarithmically with their number
so scaling to even millions of chains will allow them all to communicate at top speed.
ee « percube ­outing» and «nstant percube ­outing», 2.1.4, 2.4.19, 2.4.20
Proof-of-Stake Approach
ƒ„ uses a Proof-of-€take approach in which processing nodes …«validators»† deposit stakes
to guarantee their dependability and reach consensus through a variant of the ˆy‡antine ›ault
olerant protocol. his allows ƒ„ to focus the computing power of its nodes on handling
transactions and smart contracts further increasing speed and efficiency.
ee «Proof€Of€take ‚pproach», 2.1.16, 2.6
2-D Distributed Ledgers
ƒ„ can «grow» new valid blocks on top of any blocks that were proven to be incorrect to
avoid unnecessary forks. his self-healing mechanism saves resources and guarantees that
valid transactions will not be discarded due to unrelated errors.
ee «‚ccount chains», 2.1.1, 2.1.17

TON Platform
”s a multi-blockchain pro“ect ƒ„ re’uires sophisticated network protocols — such as the ƒ„
PP „etwork used to access the ƒ„ blockchains — that can be reused to give a significant boost
in fle‹ibility to the platform. he following components are scheduled to be released after the ƒ„
ˆlockchain core and will further increase the potential uses of the ƒ„ infrastructure.
T Storage
ƒ„ €torage is a distributed file-storage technology accessible through the ƒ„ PP
„etwork and available for storing arbitrary files with torrent-like access technology and
smart contracts used to enforce availability. his component not only enables storage services
akin to a distributed ‘ropbo‹ but also paves the way for more comple‹ decentrali‡ed apps that
re’uire storing large amounts of data such as œoutube — or elegram.
ee «TON torage», 4.1.8 and «s it possible to upload ƒacebook into blockchain„» 2.9.13
T Proy
ƒ„ Pro‹y is a network pro‹yŽanonymi‡er layer used to hide the identity and IP addresses
of ƒ„ nodes. €imilar to IP …Invisible Internet Pro“ect† this layer can be used to create
decentrali‡ed žP„ services and blockchain-based ƒR alternatives to achieve anonymity and
protect online privacy. In con“unction with the ƒ„ PP „etwork and ƒ„ ‘„€ ƒ„ Pro‹y

Telegram Messenger-TON
elegram-ƒ„ integration will provide a clear path to cryptocurrencies for millions
of people. elegram Messenger will not only serve as an e‹ample of the possibilities
offered by integrating with ƒ„ but will also add uni’ue features to the ƒ„
platform leveraging elegram’s massive user base and developed ecosystem.
Light allet
he ƒ„ architecture supports light clients that can run on mobile devices without consuming
significant resources. ƒ„ light wallets will be built into elegram applications allowing millions of
users to store their funds securely in the ƒ„ blockchain. he wallet owners will be the sole holders
of the corresponding encryption keys.

External Secure IDs
According to Tokenmarket, 84 percent of blockchain-based projects have an active Telegram
community, more than all other chat applications combined. Forbes and other media outlets have
called Telegram the «cryptocurrency world’s preferred messaging app» and «as ubiquitous to the
cryptocurrency world as Snapchat is to a teenager».8

Based on data from for Oct 2017.
Because the majority of actors in the new digital economy already have active Telegram accounts,
it is natural for Telegram to offer a secure universal ID. After passing KYC-AML on Telegram
once, users will get a virtual passport to log into services that require user verification, thereby
eliminating a major point of friction for anyone engaging with crypto-assets.
All private data (such as passport scans) will eventually be stored end-to-end encrypted with a key
known only to the owners. Telegram’s distributed servers (and later the TON Blockchain) will
have no access to this information, but will instead store a hash of the value to be able to confirm
that the data was verified when the user obtained their secure ID. Third parties will be able to add
further verifications to these virtual passports.

Telegram’s existing ecosystem will offer simple ways of buying the TON coins (Grams), and a range
of services to spend them on, driving demand and fundamental value for the cryptocurrency.
Bot Platform
As of October 2017, more than 800 000 unique third-party bots are regularly used by 52
million Telegram users. These bots can already accept credit card payments from users in 200
countries via eight providers connected to the Telegram Payments Platform. In the future, by
using their verified IDs in conjunction with bots that accept credit cards, Telegram users will be
able to buy and exchange cryptocurrencies in a frictionless and legally compliant way.
Telegram will provide a unified entry point for users willing to connect with bots that offer
exchange services, effectively creating a competitive market.
Groups and Channels
The Telegram ecosystem includes millions of public group chats reaching up to 30 000
members and broadcast channels, the largest of which have several million subscribers.
Telegram’s public broadcast channels generate over 30 billion views by 80 million users each
month. Creators of large channels currently try to monetize them by posting advertisements
or promoting other channels and groups. However, they presently lack the necessary tools to
formalize their transactions with advertisers.
To fix this, Telegram will launch a TON-based ad exchange where parties interested in
promoting their projects can connect with the relevant channel owners and negotiate a price
in a transparent and fully automated way. All accompanying transactions will be made in
Grams on a per-view or per-click basis, with the necessary statistics and guarantees provided
to all parties.
Digital Content and Physical Goods
Bots, channels, and groups provide a ready market for paid content and subscription services.
Users will be able to support publishers and content creators by making donations or paying
for exclusive access. Bots can act as virtual storefronts and accept orders for the delivery of
physical goods. Telegram’s in-app economy will supply the TON market with a wide range of
goods and services that can be obtained with TON coins.

A Gateway to Decentralized Services
Telegram will offer a searchable registry of decentralized services from its applications,
providing a list of the most popular apps, as well as recommendations based on the user’s
history of choices. These steps can make Telegram a gateway to blockchain-based projects
for the masses — similar to how Google Play and the App Store currently work for centralized
Uses of TON
as a Cryptocurrency
In addition to payments for all digital and physical assets sold by individual
merchants within the Telegram ecosystem and on other projects integrated with
TON, the TON coins (Grams) will be used as:
› Commission («gas») paid to TON nodes («validators») for processing transactions
and smart contracts;
› Stakes deposited by validators to be eligible to validate transactions and generate
new blocks and coins;
› Capital lent out to validators in exchange for a share of their reward;
› Voting power required to support or oppose changes in the parameters
of the protocol;
› Payment for services provided by apps built on the platform (TON Services);
› Payment for storing data securely in a decentralized way (TON Storage);
› Payment for registering blockchain-based domain names (TON DNS) and hosting
TON-sites (TON WWW);
› Payment for hiding identity and IP addresses (TON Proxy);
r bypassing censorship imposed by local ISPs (TON Proxy).
› Payment fo
All of these services can be free for the users since the application owners may choose to cover the
corresponding fees, and adopt a freemium or an advertisement-based business model.
