    After court ‘win’ Telegram claims will abandon TON blockchain, gram token  

    A small win in court is overshadowed by messaging service turned blockchain developer Telegram’s announcement that it won’t maintain its own TON blockchain. But is it all hot air?

    Telegram’s victory in court over the Securities and Exchange Commission Monday wasn’t much of a victory. In fact, it could prove to be the undoing of its planned Telegram Open Network blockchain platform and gram cryptocurrency. The simultaneous announcement that it won't integrate gram payments into its Telegram Messenger platform signals a recognition that its fight to keep the $1.7 billion in gram tokens it sold in 2018 from being declared a security is faltering.
