Fake news has been making rounds on Facebook about being part of the Telegram Open Network platform.
Kommersant, the Russian news outlet reported that ads were appearing that promoted a certain “Successful Investor” account on Facebook. Upon clicking the ad, you are directed to a website that purports to be Russian economics and technology media outlet RBC.
You will find a publication that resembles an investigation article; it has links to a website. The site has got a video that shows “unique scheme” of getting cash and also provides you with a registration form that is allegedly for TON platform.
A domain search service, Whois says that the domain for that website was registered back on Aug 30. The scheme promises users that they could take home $150 to $235 on a daily basis after they have given out their telephone numbers and email addresses. It is to be treated as a fraud because TON platform is yet to be unleashed.
However, as we drew close to the end of August during the $1.7 billion initial coin offering for Telegram, three anonymous investors said that Telegram was prepared to sell the foremost Gram tokens by October of this year.
Telegram unleashed its node software and TON testnet explorer on its website earlier this month. This is already 2 months ahead of the scheduled instigation of the digital currency (Gram).
Cointelegraph in April said that Telegram had granted access to a testing version that was to be discreet on the TON blockchain to several developers. The blockchain platform had extremely high transaction speed according to the anonymous test developers. This meant that the technology would be useful and ease out stress on lengthy transactions.
TON Labs, a software startup, is allegedly developing a solidity compiler for this technology. The Labs is currently managed and run by token offering investors for Telegram. Solidity compiler is a programming language that is also used in unfolding smart contracts on Ethereum platform. This, therefore, makes the Ethereum DApps compatible with the TON blockchain technology.
