The TON Blockchain development team is no longer actively involved in the project. Information about this appeared on the official website of the blockchain.
Pavel Durov had to close TON after the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York forbade the distribution of Gram tokens. TON was supposed to launch in late April, but it didn't happen, and on April 30, Durov offered all investors a refund by selling Telegram's equity in a year.
Some of the almost finished components, including TON Storage, TON Payments, and CPS Fift, have been moved from the private development branch to the main public branch on GitHub. The efforts of Telegram employees who developed the TON blockchain platform will be redirected to other projects of the company.
If members of the original development team have free time, they will be able to answer some community questions and make minor corrections. From now on, the TON code becomes freeware.
