Former vice-president of the most popular Russian social network "VKontakte" Ilya Perekopsky moved to another project of Pavel Durov - Telegram. According to sources of Russian media RBk, the appointment is due to the ICO of the messenger.

Perekopsky himself confirmed his appointment to Telegram, where he will be responsible for "business development". He also noted that he joined the new position of vice-president of the company from the beginning of this year.

Two sources of RBK in the market of cryptocurrencies told that Perekopsky is also in charge of ICO of Telegram, but he himself declined to answer the question about whether the development of the TON and ICO  will be part of his task.

Ilya Perekopsky worked in VKontakte from 2008 to January 2014 - he was responsible for business operations of the social network. He is familiar with Durov from the university, where they studied on the same course of the philology department of St. Petersburg State University. After VKontakte, Perekopsky became Business Development Director of Blackmoon Financial Group, and in 2017 took part in the creation of the Blackmoon Crypto.

In late March, Telegram's CEO Pavel Durov reported to the US Securities and Exchange Commission on attracting $ 850 million from 94 investors in the second phase of the closed ICO of TON. The minimum investment amount was $ 1 million. The document is published on the SEC website.

Earlier in the pre-sale phase, Telegram attracted $ 850 million from 81 investors. At the pre-sale stage, some sources claimed that Telegram received bids for $ 3.8 billion.

The user of the service for hosting IT projects GitLab under the nickname "Jérémie" reported on block freezing for 45 minutes. Later in Riot chat he learned that developers are aware of the problem and they are working on its solution.

Bug between the baker and the node. The two communicate over json but the json serializer incorrectly handled some control characters. Immediate fix was to patch the serializer. Medium term fix is that the baker and node really should communicate using the binary RPCs instead.
