TON Foundation adds crypto payments to Telegram

April 29, 2022

TON Foundation has enabled a feature that would allow users to send Toncoin on Telegram.

The new crypto payment feature would work without any transaction fees.

The TON Foundation announced the feature on Twitter saying that users would no longer need to enter long wallet addresses and wait for confirmations.

The crypto payment feature is similar to Twitter's Bitcoin payment feature.

Toncoin platform has seen over 52 million transactions so far with nearly half a million wallets.

The encrypted messaging platform had abandoned the TON foundation after a long legal battle with the US government.

Telegram had raised over $1.2 billion in its ICO before the US court ordered the company to return the raised funds back to investors.
