Zug, Switzerland, October 13th, 2023, Chainwire
The Open Network (TON) Foundation has today announced the support of Elliptic, a leading blockchain analysis firm, to provide the network with data intelligence and additional ecosystem security, supporting TON Foundation with its goal of putting crypto in every pocket by building a web3 ecosystem in Telegram.
Elliptic will screen all TON wallet addresses and flag those associated with bad actors, helping to prevent the exposure of TON users and projects to these accounts. Elliptic will also promote Toncoin to have it listed on reputable exchanges. This will provide greater visibility and security to the ecosystem as TON Foundation expands the range of on-ramps available for new users to enter TON’s ecosystem and experience true asset ownership.
This latest step follows the announcement of TON Foundation’s collaboration with Telegram providing the infrastructure for the messenger’s growing Web3 app ecosystem. TON’s community has grown rapidly over the past year, with the number of registered accounts on TON having grown by 165%. The collaboration will ensure that users across TON’s ecosystem are protected from accounts associated with illicit or malicious activities.
“Elliptic’s support will ensure that TON’s ecosystem remains secure as it continues to scale at pace, with users protected from malicious or criminal activity,” said Justin Hyun, Director of Growth at TON Foundation.
