Telegram Updates: Accounts Need No SIM, but Blockchain-based Number

  • Telegram updated the platform with a new feature to enhance its privacy policy.
  • The new update allows users to create accounts without SIM cards but through blockchain-based anonymous numbers.
  • The numbers and usernames can be purchased from Fragment in exchange for TONS.

The centralized instant message service app, Telegram, has been updated with a new feature that allows users to create accounts without sim cards but using blockchain-based anonymous numbers.

On December 7, the Telegram team announced that the platform has decided to start a new phase of privacy:

Today starts a new era of privacy. You can have a Telegram account without a SIM card.

Significantly, the new feature is a part of the privacy policy of the messaging platform, which already had security features enabling the application to hide personal phone numbers from the non-added users on the platform.

Since the introduction of the platform in 2013 by Nikolai and Pavel Durov, Telegram has been embedded with security and privacy features including self-destructive messages by which the users can delete the messages without a trace. In addition, they could also set auto-delete timers to remove chats after a specific time.

According to the new update, the users are supposed to purchase “blockchain-powered anonymous numbers” from the decentralized auction platform, Fragment, founded by Pavel Durov, the creator of Telegram.

Notably, Fragment issues anonymous numbers and user names that adhere to the privacy policy of Telegram. The name and number can be purchased in exchange for The Open Network (TON), Telegram’s affiliated token.

Though the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a case against the use of TON in 2019, the platform settled the issues soon and has been permitting users to send and receive the coins directly within the chats.
