Telegram’s new blockchain task will be appropriate with ethereum, according to a tech startup building tools for the network.
The messaging business is expected to launch the code to operate a node on the Telegram Open Network (TON) on Sunday, allowing for customers to trial its task in progress of the project’s expected mainnet start on Oct. 31.
TON Labs, a tech startup helmed by investors in Telegram’s token sale, is building a quantity of tools for developers to aid them build on the new network. 1 of these tools will be a Solidity compiler, which will permit decentralized purposes developed for ethereum to also operate on TON, said TON Labs CEO and controlling partner Alexander Filatov.
Filatov advised CoinDesk:
“That was in all probability the most difficult thing we developed. It will permit the innovative Ethereum community to pull anything they wrote for ethereum into TON.”
The compiler has been in tests considering that July, he said.
As described, TON is expected to start by Oct. 31. If it does not, Telegram will have to refund investors in its token sale, according to its person settlement. Sunday’s launch, hence, is expected to be the past in a collection of testnet releases.
Filatov said Sunday’s code launch will be the most vital phase of TON’s rollout, expressing:
“We have really small time concerning the node launch and the mainnet start to examination, detect and deal with possibly bugs and vulnerabilities.”
Code for a gentle consumer was shared with investors previously this yr and instantly leaked to the basic community, according to Filatov. He said this consumer authorized customers to perform all around with some of the TON blockchain’s essential functions.
“You can perform with GRAMs [the network’s token], produce a simple intelligent agreement speaking to the node through a gentle consumer [and] create a wallet,” Filatov said.
