Telegram released a test version of the TON crypto wallet

Telegram released a test version of the TON crypto wallet

Telegram has released a test version of a desktop wallet for storing Gram tokens. Users can download the application for MacOS, Windows and Linuxon the official Telegram website and get the keys in the TON test network. After creating a seed phrase of 24 words and a password for making payments, the wallet is ready to receive and send digital currency.

Now you have a wallet directly controlled by you - without intermediaries or bankers, Telegram claims.

Users can also get Gram in testNetworks from a special Telegram bot (from 5 to 20 tokens). A transaction on a testnet takes about 1 minute, although the bot warns that a transaction may take longer.

Recall that in September the team released a code for a full node, validator nodes and a block explorer, confirming the fact that the project is partially ready for launch.

In early October, the project published the terms of use for the wallet application and provided investors with access to public keys using the TON key generator, which is now built into the application.

However, the launch was delayed after filing the SEC lawsuitto court on Telegram for violating the US Securities Act. Subsequently, Telegram received investor approval to postpone the launch until April 31, 2020.

The company is going to meet with the SEC in court on February 18 and 19, 2020 in New York.
