Have you ever heard of TON Labs? As you can see, the name refers to the Telegram Open Network, which means that it is directly related to the Free TON ecosystem. A new crypto wallet? Cryptocurrency exchange platform? Or maybe a Telegram bot? Read this post to find out!
So, TON Labs is the international company behind the development of the TON blockchain protocol, the predecessor to Free TON, which was forced to close in May 2020 due to the actions of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The company was founded in 2018 and now its team counts more than 60 high-class developers, engineers and professionals working remotely from all over the world.
The story of its creation is quite simple: in 2017, several independent professionals met with Pavel Durov and his team. The decision was made as a result of the negotiations that there should be created a team that will develop tools to simplify TON coding in order to increase the project’s chances of revolutionizing the whole blockchain world.
Following this, a team of top developers was founded, and they began to create complementary infrastructure for TON: compilers, SDK and other tools that could significantly simplify the creation of applications for the platform.
How can we tell if the team succeeds or not? Its well-coordinated work allows countless developers and entrepreneurs to create their own decentralized applications based on TON and watch their success. Isn’t that an excellent result? At the same time, preference is given to open source – according to TON Labs, this is the best way to implement the company’s mission, because this way the success will belong to the entire community. Their mission is to create accessible and secure TON Dev and TON Surf systems to enable the implementation of nodes for the TON protocol, as well as to provide users with a fundamentally new way to interact with financial technologies.
As for the team’s expectations regarding the development of the platform, of course, they set as their main goal the rapid growth of the TON developer community. Two heads are better than one – and if their count goes to tens of thousands, even more so. The company continues to grow and even now their vacancies can be found on job search sites. Now their main projects is Free TON, the cutting-edge blockchain, on the development of which more than 6,000 developers and companies are working in a decentralized manner.
