Ultra-Fast Blockchain technology from Telegram messenger.
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.
At the core of the platform is the TON Blockchain — a scalable and flexible blockchain architecture that consists of a master chain and up to 292 accompanying blockchains. Below are some notable design choices that allow the TON Blockchain to process millions of transactions per second.
Launching in 2018, this cryptocurrency will be based on multi-blockchain Proof-of-Stake system — TON (Telegram Open Network, after 2021 The Open Network) — designed to host a new generation of cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications.
Bitcoin has established itself as the «digital gold», and Ethereum has proved to be an efficient platform for token crowd sales. However, there is no current standard cryptocurrency used for the regular exchange of value in the daily lives of ordinary people. The blockchain ecosystem needs a decentralized counterpart to everyday money - a truly mass-market cryptocurrency.
Despite their revolutionary potential, existing cryptocurrencies lack the qualities required to attract the mass consumer. There are three main hurdles in today’s environments:
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:

Can securely handle millions transactions per second, thanks to unique Multi-Blockchain Architecture
Hypercube Routing, TON Blockchains can quickly exchange data using a smart routing system.
Uses direct payment channels to transfer value in milliseconds
Efficient and Flexible
Processing nodes do only useful work maximizing efficiency and each block in a TON blockchain can become a blockchain of its own, making the structure immensely flexible.
