We’re excited to announce that Free TON has joined the Messari Research Hub. As a participating project, Free TON will join the industry’s largest research community starting with an in-depth profile of their native asset, TON Crystal (TON) on Messari.
Free TON Joins the Messari Registry
TON Crystal (TON) is the native asset for the Free TON blockchain. Free TON is a smart contract platform with certain commonalities with Telegram’s now-defunct TON blockchain project. Its network uses a multithreading technique called sharding that partitions storage and processing responsibilities to smaller validator groups resulting in a chain that has lower transaction latency and higher throughput compared to blockchains operating as a single state layer.
Free TON uses Proof-of-Stake (PoS) to achieve consensus and can support application development in several high-level computer languages such as C, C++, and Solidity. Network participants can use TON Crystals to pay for transaction fees or stake to secure the network and vote on governance proposals.
