The popular Russian instant messaging service Telegram has just officially launched a test client for its TON blockchain, according to the files published on its repository, test.ton.org.
According to the information contained in the readme file, the new files available for download are a distribution of a preliminary version of the TON Blockchain Network Lite Client along with the relevant parts of the TON blockchain library. It is basically a simplified stable version of the Lite Client platform.
A GitHub user uploaded a version of the client to the repository on May 25. According to the readme file, the client — provided it is configured correctly — connected to a full node of the test network of the TON blockchain.
Among the files available for download there is also a configuration file for the development of smart contracts that users can install and that connects the lite client to a special server.
Telegram released in April a private beta testing version of its blockchain to a limited number of developers around the world.
