The fact that Telegram will not be responsible for managing the service, the developers said on the eve of Pavel Durov’s testimony in court on January 7 and 8. Pavel Durov was in the court as a witness in the case of creating his own cryptocurrency.
Telegram denies control over the Telegram Open Network blockchain platform. This is stated on the service website.
It is noted that the TON code will always be open and public. “After the launch of the platform, Telegram will take the same position as any other side regarding TON” – the developers said.
It is also reported that Telegram employees will not have any relation to voting or authorization through the blockchain. “This voluntary decision was made in order to avoid the idea that Telegram or its employees can get a control over TON after the launch of the platform” – the text says.
