Pavel Durov may present the TON blockchain project at the World Economic Forum 2019, which will be held from 22 to 25 January in the Swiss Davos. Durov had previously visited this forum, but did not participate in official events.
According to some sources, the official launch of the platform is scheduled for the second quarter of 2019. Thus, the presentation of the TON blockchain at the World Economic Forum can have a much greater effect than a simple announcement in the middle of the year.
As previously reported, the TON blockchain platform was launched in test mode in the fall of 2018. The developers have successfully completed the development of most of the critical components needed to run the test version, and the platform is already 70% ready.
In case of failure with the launch of the TON platform and its own cryptocurrency until October 31, 2019, Telegram is going to return the money to investors.
