The web has information that the collection of applications for participation in the ICO of the Telegram has been completed. Initially, the organizers intend to raise $ 850 million, but the bids were eventually raised by $ 3.8 billion. This is reported by Russian media "Vedomosti".
According to "an employee of a venture fund familiar with ICO participants and a member of an investor syndicate who is going to invest in Telegram", the proposal caused an agiotage among investors. It is noted that those who could not invest at this stage intend to buy back shares from more successful funds in the future. Different interlocutors of the newspaper say about the premium reselling in 20-30%, and some believe that with $ 0.3 per token, the price may rise up to $ 3.5.
Approved by the owners of Telegram payments for pre-ICO should be held before February 1, Vedomosti's interlocutors added. The collected funds Telegram will spend on the future block-platform Telegram Open Network (TON).
In addition, on the evening of Sunday, January 21, Pavel Durov first mentioned the Gram Cryptocurrency in his Twitter.

It should be noted that Pavel Durov himself has not officially confirmed the information about the crowdsdale of the TON project, however, scammers have already appeared on the network offering users to buy the non-existent crypto currency of the Telegram messenger.
Earlier it became known that due to the excitement around the ICO of its project, TON Telegram was forced to turn down a number of investors. As an unnamed negotiator with the company's managers noted, Pavel Durov does not seek to attract Russian funds.
