In a move signaling confidence in the future of Telegram’s blockchain network, Pantera Capital, a leading venture capital firm specializing in blockchain technology announced its largest ever investment in TON. The exact amount of the investment remains undisclosed.

Pantera Capital views TON as a project in its early stages and expresses optimism for the future. They anticipate the Telegram user base to drive significant adoption of the TON ecosystem and its upcoming features.
