TON is an ambitious project which is more than a cryptocurrency integrating within the Telegram app. To support these features, TON uses a dynamic sharding scaling model, consisting of a master chain with primary consensus and up to 2 92 side-chains. These side-chains can split and merge dynamically to spread the transaction load evenly over the network. The blockchain will eventually be fully decentralised, with validator nodes maintaining consensus through a proof-of-stake mechanism and earning Grams for their contribution to the network. TON light wallets will be built into Telegram mobile applications, allowing users to store their funds on the blockchain with minimal hassle. The platform will also allow Telegram users to transfer and spend cryptocurrency. The Gram cryptocurrency will be the central medium of exchange on the TON blockchain. Commission paid to TON validator nodes. Stakes deposited by validators to be eligible to validate transactions. Capital lent to validators in exchange for a share of their reward. Voting power required to support or oppose changes in the parameters of the TON protocol. Payment for services provided by apps built on the platform. Payment for storing data securely in a decentralized way. Payment for registering blockchain-based domain names. Payment for using the TON-based proxy. Payment for bypassing censorship imposed by local ISPs.
