Usecases for Toncoin

As the ecosystem expands, we see a huge potential of Toncoin and numerous ways for it to work in the new economy. We expect it to go beyond a means of payment.

  • Commission («gas») paid for processing transactions and smart contracts
  • Cross-chain transactions commission in The Open Network
  • Payment for services provided by apps built on the platform (TON Services)
  • Payment for storing data securely in a decentralized way (TON Storage)
  • Payment for registering blockchain-based domain names (TON DNS) and hosting TON-sites (TON WWW)
  • Payment for TON Proxy
  • Payment for creating extra currencies
  • Payment for creating new workchains
  • Stakes deposited by validators to be eligible to validate transactions and generate new blocks and coins
  • Capital lent out to validators in exchange for a share of their reward

When testnet2 later renamed as Mainnet was launched, 5bn coins were generated with a small fraction (1.45% of the total supply) distributed between testers and developers.
After the court ruling prohibiting Gram, the Telegram team gave up TON blockchain development with the most part of testnet2 coins (98.55% of the total supply) transferred to Proof-of-Work Giver smart contracts. So, mining coins is only possible through calling these smart contracts which takes a solid computation capacity.
At the point when testnet2 was renamed as Mainnet coins had already been organically distributed between a large number of various users. The price was determined by the cost of mining hardware.
