Telegram Introduced a Desktop Wallet for the TON
Telegram introduced a user-oriented version of the Gram Wallet wallet for the TON test network with support for the Windows, macOS and Linux operating systems. The source code for the wallet is available on GitHub.
Using the application, you can create a new wallet or import an existing one. When creating a wallet, a seed phrase of 24 words will be generated, which will allow you to restore access in case of loss of a password or device.
To get test Grams, you should contact other users of the wallet or Telegram-bot, which credits from 5 to 20 tokens.
Currently, Gram Wallet allows you to receive and send tokens in the test network. Also, the application settings provide the ability to change the network in which the user is located.
The launch of the main TON network was supposed to take place before the end of October but was postponed due to proceedings against the company initiated by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Hearings in the case are scheduled for February 18–19, 2020. TON investors agreed not to demand a refund and wait until April 30th.
