The free version of the decentralized blockchain network derived from the TON blockchain on Telegram is launching the first community competition to provide power for its network. Starting this Monday, the free version of TON plans to invite users, developers and validators to participate in three separate contests and distribute a large number of TON tokens as rewards.
The proposal for the first community competition was formally introduced at the Free TON forum on Monday. The community plans to allocate at least 50,000 TON tokens between winners, participants and the jury for each competition. The competition is expected to end on May 25.
Participating in the free version of the TON community competition is currently the only way to obtain TON tokens
The first free version of the TON competition includes a soft voting (SMV) system for developers, a DevOps tool competition, and an airdrop mechanical competition. The SMV and DevOps competitions are designed for developers and ,, while the airdrop mechanical competition is for everyone who wants to participate.
The free version of the TON community told Cointelegraph that participating in the free version of the TON competition is currently the only way to obtain TON tokens. This also means that only those who contribute to the network can get Tons. The task of these contests is to “distribute tokens in an elite way”, and the free version of TON indicates that the community plans to launch more contests in the future.
According to reports, the total number of TON tokens exceeds 5 billion, of which 85% are planned to be distributed to the free version of TON partners and users, 10% are allocated to developers, and the remaining 5% will be obtained by community verifiers.
The free version of TON hopes that American users can participate in the future
As mentioned above, users from the United States cannot currently participate in the free version of TON’s network. The free version of TON’s airdrop machine competition mentioned:
“Anyone can participate, but the free version of TON cannot distribute tokens to any U.S. citizen or corporate entity.”
Obviously, due to existing regulatory issues with the TON blockchain, American users cannot be invited to join the free version of the TON blockchain. Telegram CEO Pavel Durov officially terminated Telegram’s participation in TON and Gram tokens on Tuesday, on the grounds that U.S. courts prohibited Telegram from distributing its tokens anywhere in the world.
Despite the complex regulatory situation, the free version of the TON community still hopes that the United States can join the network in the future. The community said at the free version of the TON conference held on May 7th: “As we achieve complete decentralization, all obstacles will be removed.”
