Fast and cheap blockchain

The Open Network (TON) blockchain, crafted by the Telegram team in 2020, embodies a focus on delivering swift and seamless scalability, fostering enhanced cost-effectiveness, and ensuring a smooth user experience.

There are four main characteristics that any blockchain should possess for their potential gaming audience: scalability, decentralization, transaction speed, and cost efficiency. TON addresses every aspect.

Wallets serve as one of the fundamental building blocks of blockchains. Players must have a wallet linked to their account, which acts as a gateway to handle digital assets and tokens within the blockchain ecosystem.

The primary wallet in the TON ecosystem is the Wallet bot right in Telegram, which provides all needed functionality for a player – account creation, purchases, on-ramp, asset management.

There are other wallets available in the TON ecosystem. Those can be easily integrated using TON Connect 2.0.

Community building tools

Create Telegram channels or groups to manage your community. With a wide list of features, members won't miss your updates.
Community building tools

Telegram channels are tools for broadcasting your public messages to large audiences. They offer a unique opportunity to reach people directly, sending a notification to their phones with each post. Examples — @Bloomberg, @toncoin.

Telegram groups are a powerful tool for building communities and can support up to 200,000 members each. Group admins can inform all members about important news using pinned messages that are displayed at the top of the chat screen. All members will get a notification — even if they muted ordinary messages from the group.

Monetization

You can monetize the game by selling NFTs, create in-game tokens, or accept payment for additional features.
Monetization

Telegram and TON allow developers to create and launch high-quality games, grow audiences, retain players, and monetize. Monetization best practices vary depending on the genre of a game, but in general there are 3 most common revenue sources for games in the TON ecosystem:

NFT sales

Primary sales of NFTs using crypto or on-ramp solutions. Secondary market with royalties.

In-game tokens

Fungible tokens (jettons) can be minted, sold, and listed on DEXes.

In-app ads

Any game can be monetized by showing ads to its players.
