Telegram allows crypto payment

These days, Messengers are embroiled in fierce competition for using cryptocurrencies. Telegram, which was once ranked first in the competition, has now returned to the race, providing the ability to pay in cryptocurrency in chat, using The Open Network and its coin.

Telegram lets users send Toncoin directly from chats within the messaging app in its latest update.

Telegram was the original designer of the TON (The Open Network) crypto blockchain.

But in October 2019 it had to stop its development and return the money raised back to investors.

In 2021, a group of blockchain open-source developers restarted the TON blockchain project and brought it here.

To use the feature, you have to add Telegram’s Wallet bot to your attachment menu.

It allows you to purchase cryptocurrency by bank card, exchange, and transfer to other wallets.

To send crypto, you can pull up the Wallet from your attachment menu while in a chat.

Enter the amount of Toncoin you want to send, confirm all the details, and then hit send.

Your recipient will receive the Toncoin through the chat.

Toncoin (TON) price now stands at $1.23 with $1,510,518,450 Market Cap.
