“We aim for it to be able to host all reasonable applications currently proposed and conceived. One might think about TON as a huge distributed super-computer, or rather a huge “superserver”, intended to host and provide a variety of services”.

Although the release was scheduled for September 1st, the community is eagerly waiting to see the product in action.

The CTO of TON Labs has confirmed that the source code for a full node that can access Testnet, create and validate blocks was fully working. He added that the Mainnet launch for the Telegram Open Network is set for no later than October.
