    According to Telegram team "Grams are NOT investment products and there should be NO expectation of future profit or gain from the purchase"

    Yes it's not investment, it's "donation."

  • Nic Carter on Telegram Open Network Partner at Castle Island VC and Co-founder of Coinmetrics

    [The] TON [whitepaper] was just blockchain fanfic. Investors almost certainly got implicit or informal assurances there weren't present in the whitepaper from Telegram.

  • Spencer Noon on Telegram Open Network Investor at DTC

    Massive blow to TON investors as Telegram announces its cryptocurrency won't be integrated natively in the messenger app but rather in a standalone wallet.

    90+% of the investment thesis for TON was having Telegram as a distribution channel.

    There was never any reason or justification for Telegram to issue its own currency.

    The TON blockchain whitepaper made me wish I could unlearn how to read.

  • Ryan Selkis on Telegram Open Network Founder and CEO at Messari

    Telegram's gonna figure [out TON] because it's about team, community, and ripping OS code that works. Wish I had gotten a piece. [Long term] hold.

  • Lawson Baker on Telegram Open Network Head of Project Zero at TokenSoft

    Telegram has 200M users and no longer have the same startup and founder risks found in every new ICO project. Now with over $1B in funding they have the capital to copy + paste the best OSS ideas into GRAMS.
