Pavel Durov's blockchain project Telegram Open Network (TON) is 70% complete. This became known from the documents published in the network, dated the fifth of September. They were announced by Button co-founder Mike Dudas.

They confirm previously published information that the TON Virtual Machine (TVM) smart contract mechanism is “fully implemented and tested.” Its readiness is estimated at 95%.

It is also noted that at the completion stage there is a component for executing transaction requests in the TON network. At the same time, the software for block validation is only 10% ready.

TVM is fully implemented and internalyl tested. Minor modifications are likely to be necessary during the process of binding TVM with TON blockchain generation and validation software.

Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain platform can be presented at the 49th World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. However, there is no official information about Pavel Durov’s speech at WEF yet.

At the same time, according to The Bell, during January there should be a meeting of the largest project investors with a demonstration of the test version of TON. The launch of the main network is expected in March.

According to the latest TON roadmap, which appeared in the Telegram-channel @Tgram in early January, the launch of the main network may be postponed for 2-3 months due to the “innovative nature of the development”.

TON is about 90% ready, and the latest news about the platform will appear in February 2019. At the same time, an audit of Testnet is scheduled in order to find errors and flaws.

Pavel Durov hadn't provide any official comment on the situation.

Note that initially the launch of a test network for TON was planned for the second quarter of 2018. At the end of the same year, a full launch of the platform and the Telegram Wallet wallet was planned.

Earlier it became known that Pavel Durov filed an application for the liquidation of the Telegram Messenger LLP. According to the assumption of some experts, the decision will relate exclusively to changes in the corporate structure of the company.
