According to the GitHub client, the new light client of the TON blockchain network would allow developers to test the version of the TON blockchain. Apparently, Telegram allowed Russian developer teams and other global developers to test the network.
At the same time, this document makes reference to the same content of the GitHub repository that is currently present on the test.ton.org domain. However, the domain was registered with privacy-protecting options, which means that it is not possible to know the identity of the register.
The developer that created and contributed to the repository is called Kiku Reise, he is based in Ukraine and has been working on other projects such as the mobile and windows versions of proxy software shadowsocks.
At the same time, there is a Telegram channel that is dedicated to TON that shared this GitHub link. However, the authenticity of this link has not yet been confirmed by the company. During a conversation with Cointelegraph, Kiku Reise said that he does not work for Telegram and that the material is most likely leaked.
Moreover, the repository includes an introduction to the programming language that has been created in order for developers to deploy smart contracts on the TON blockchain.
Michael Novogratz, the recognized crypto investor and the founder and CEO of Galaxy Digital, said that the crypto asset created by social media giants such as Telegram and Facebook could eventually succeed.
