Recent Developments in TON Ecosystem
Recently, TON released a press release about approved grant recipients of the TON Foundation for the first round of the second quarter of 2023.
This development will add significant value to TON, enhancing visibility of TON-based applications, enabling O-Chain credits, and on-chain contract management.
The project will also introduce new user-friendly utilities for TON core services and make Toncoin (TON) accessible to a larger audience through TON wallet Integration with KaiOS. All these events are likely to increase demand for TON, which can have a positive impact on price.
