Telegram boasts an impressive monthly active user base of over 900 million. Indeed, the number provides a promising environment for TON’s expansion and development.

“We believe the TON network is still in its early stages, and we are excited to witness the adoption of its ecosystem and new features by the Telegram user base,” the firm said.

The messaging giant recently enhanced its platform by allowing users to make purchases and payments with the TON token, including new features like Tether (USDT) stablecoin transactions. Before the funding from Pantera Capital, TON announced its integration with stablecoin issuer Tether.

Tether expanded its USDT and XAUT stablecoins offerings to the TON blockchain. Additionally, TON developers have committed $5 million in TON tokens to promote the adoption of a novel palm-scanning identity verification technology among users.
