Tencent Cloud

Tencent Cloud has already successfully supported TON validators and plans to expand its services further to help meet TON’s high compute intensity and network bandwidth needs.

Tencent Cloud and TON Foundation are devoted to supporting web applications and bots built within Telegram. For example, Telegram games built on TON can benefit from Tencent Cloud’s enriched gaming solution and reference cases. For all projects built on TON, Tencent Cloud will offer, subject to approval, a dedicated amount of cloud credits and product discounts made available through the Tencent Cloud Startup Program. Find out more here.


Leveraging their extensive experience in data indexing and querying, Chainbase will offer the first data indexing product on TON. This will allow for the free utilization, querying, and analysis of all TON data per developers’ unique use cases. Chainbase’s enterprise node deployment service will deliver low-latency and highly reliable blockchain connectivity for Web3 projects and developers on TON

Chainbase is an all-in-one data infrastructure for Web3 that allows you to index, transform, and use on-chain data at scale through diverse tools we provide, such as pre-defined APIs, SQL studio, data syncing, subgraph hosting, and more. With an OPEN, FAST, RELIABLE platform and a suite of seamless developer tools, Chainbase’s ultimate goal is to increase data freedom in the crypto and unleash better data utilization and full data ownership. Over 5,000 developers actively utilize our platform as their data backend and integrate our service into their main workflow. Additionally, we are working with ~10 top-tier public chains as first-tier validators and managing over US $500Mn tokens as a validator node provider. Find out more at:

We want to sincerely thank Awesome Doge, a GitHub contributor, for helping us establish this important partnership.

Developer Tools

We recognize that developer tools are required to boost TON's adoption and development. That’s why the TON Foundation also supports independent contributors and teams who continuously work on providing more tools.

TON Connect Update

Last month, we updated the TON Connect user interface to a more intuitive design and enhanced its usability. Additionally, we integrated the new non-custodial TON Space wallet support from the TON Wallet project.

Migration of TON Libraries

Many popular JavaScript/TypeScript libraries in the TON Ecosystem, like ton, ton-core, blueprint, and ton-crypto, were developed by different teams, such as TonWhales, Orbs, and Ton Tech, and maintained by them - credit given where credit is due. But now, those libraries have successfully transitioned to shared ownership, where multiple contributors from multiple entities can collaborate.

  • The shared ownership version of main JS/TS libraries are hosted on ton-org GitHub
  • The shared ownership versions of those packages are published on NPM under the @ton organization

We urge all developers to transition to the new NPM packages, as the old ones will soon cease to be supported and be marked as deprecated.

In the spirit of decentralization, we call on teams to support this transition of popular shared libraries to shared ownership and move the original repositories to avoid unnecessary forks.

Latest Updates

  • Integration of Blueprint and IntelliJ IDEA – Two great tools for developing TON smart contracts are now integrated into each other. They allow you to create a new TON project in one click, use the code editor with everything you need, run tests, and compile the contract with a hotkey or, with a click on the toolbar, deploy the contract just by scanning the QR code.

Education & Onboarding

The key focus of the TON Onboarding initiative is to develop learning materials and tools to ease development on the TON blockchain. The last quarter was very successful, with tons of new published materials.

We performed a major upgrade of the Developers Portal as a key entry point for any developer on TON.

TON Blockchain Course Release

The new TON Blockchain Course was published on Stepik in beta, with over 40 lessons, lasting almost 10 hours. With the support of the TON Foundation, the course was designed to be as close to reality as possible so that participants can work on their projects on the TON blockchain or get jobs at existing startups and funds.

Mini Apps Documentation Updates

Thanks to the experience of the latest hackathon participants and the community, we’ve hugely improved TON Connect documentation and released Mini Apps documentation with practical examples.

Telegram Web3 Grants

The Telegram Web3 Grants program is our strategic initiative to amplify the TON Ecosystem within Telegram Messenger. Envisioning Telegram as a comprehensive hub for everything from payments to messaging, we've tailored the program to cater to various developmental stages: grants for initial deployments or proof of concept applications, for live TON-based projects not yet integrated with Telegram, and for projects on other blockchains eyeing a transition to TON. Depending on the project's nature and category, grant amounts can range from $10,000 to a substantial $50,000 in TON.

"Today, we're launching the new grants program to encourage and support developers building within the Telegram Web3 ecosystem," said Anthony Tsivarev, Director of Developer Relations at TON Foundation. "TON's speed, scalability, affordability, and the unique user-growth opportunity afforded via Telegram is a helping hand no other blockchain system provides today. Now, more developers than ever can harness the garden of possibilities on TON and grow their ideas into real-world solutions."

For those interested in diving deeper, guidelines are available on our GitHub. We invite you to apply for a grant for integration with the Telegram Web3 infrastructure directly on Questbook.

Acceleration & Investments

Over the course of Q3, hundreds of projects contacted us for intake calls seeking acceleration, investment, or for an informational chat to understand how they can leverage the extra design space of TON and Telegram to build revenue-generating products.

Time and time again, projects referenced distribution and the ability to build a business on TON and Telegram that could reach customers that were not currently onchain as reasons that they have chosen to build in our ecosystem.

In Q3, we provided numerous acceleration and demo opportunities to raise the visibility of key projects.

You can now view these events on YouTube:

Participants in the TON Foundation Accelerator will become early integrators into key TON and Telegram infrastructure like @wallet and will also receive access to Telegram Ads, TonTech audits, and other strategic opportunities.

In addition to our internal efforts at TON Foundation, many community members hosted events to find best-in-class entrepreneurs who want to build on TON and Telegram.

TONx/BlockTempo Demo Day Taipei attracted over 100 participants from 10 teams who competed on the stage in the DeFi and NFT categories. The teams were judged by a lineup of professionals from the TONCoin Fund, TonX Studio, TON Foundation, Fritagebird Studio, and even honorable guest Sun Shisheng from the Department of Information Science. The winning team, TonFura, created a convenient Web3 infrastructure for dApp developers on TON, lowering and simplifying the threshold for accessing TON data. The runner-ups were Bulleton and Eventon. Click here to watch the event aftermovie.

We also expanded our circle of investors and partners, with TonX joining our list of accelerator partners and continuing to onboard new partners each quarter.

Finally, members of our Accelerator Cohort 1 continued to thrive and progress on their roadmaps:
