Telegram introduced a preliminary version of its desktop cryptocurrency wallet for the TON blockchain.
Anyone can now download the application for the 64-bit OS from the official website of the project and get the keys for working in the test network. A choice of options for Windows, MacOS and Linux.
After installation, it traditionally generates a 24-word passphrase needed to restore access, and asks for a password to confirm transactions. After that, the wallet is ready to go.
So that users can experience the new product, the chatbot distributes Gram tokens for free, from 5 to 20. Funds arrive within a minute, but with a high load of the TON test network this may take longer.
The wallet was launched despite the fact that the US Securities and Exchange Commission recently banned the company from selling tokens.
