“That was probably the most difficult thing we built. It will allow the advanced Ethereum community to pull everything they wrote for ethereum into TON.”
Tests before the launch
The expected to launch date of TON is Oct. 31. According to the user agreement, Telegram will have to refund all of its investors in their token sale if they fail to launch at the said launch date.
Coindesk also reported that there is an expected code release today, September 1.
Filatov said Sept. 1’s code release will be the most important stage of TON’s rollout.
“We have very little time between the node release and the mainnet launch to test, identify and fix possible bugs and vulnerabilities.”
There was a light client code shared with investors earlier this year and was immediately leaked to the general public.
Filatov said this client allowed users to play around with some of the TON blockchain’s basic functions.
“You can play with GRAMs [the network’s token], write a simple smart contract talking to the node via a light client [and] create a wallet.”
