Benjamin Ramo, managing partner of the fund, has said:
"The TON network is available to millions of users thanks to community efforts to integrate bots into Telegram and customize the interface. The Toncoin Fund is ready to support decentralized exchanges, stablecoins, NFTs and other TON-based decentralized applications."
In May 2020, Telegram founder Pavel Durov announced the closure of the Telegram Open Network (TON) project due to a legal dispute with the SEC and a ban on the distribution of Gram tokens.
