Why Are We Building Telenova?

Telenova is a TApp (Telegram application), meaning we have now brought an incredibly user-friendly Polkadot wallet to Telegram’s 800+ million Monthly Active Users (MAUs). The fact that Telenova is built directly into Telegram means that users do not have to install any additional software or applications to get started in the Polkadot ecosystem!

Telenova is the very first Polkadot application that is a fully functional web3 application on Telegram, this leverages Telegram’s brand new application platform that has built-in discovery and promotional capabilities, allowing the Polkadot ecosystem to be seen by every Telegram user.

And one more thing — Telenova fills an obvious gap in the Polkadot ecosystem, by providing a simple and user-friendly Polkadot wallet for web3 newbies.

What’s Next?

We first revealed Telenova at sub0 2024 and the community response has been nothing short of amazing!

We plan to keep updating Telenova further, ensuring that it has all the features that you need whilst it remains clean and simple. Expect more tokens to be supported and some new exciting features and improvements!
