Giant instant messaging service provider Telegram has stated that its wallet for its native token, Gram (GRM), is now accessible in alpha version on iOS.
The messaging app reported that the Gram wallet is now available on alpha version but will only be accessed on iOS. However, the wallet at the moment only operates only in Telegram Open Network (TON) testnet. At the moment, those willing to use the wallet will only be able to delete the wallet, receive as well as send Grams, and sharing their wallet address.
According to Fyodor Skuratov who works at TON Labs, which is a subsidiary of Telegram’s token providing investors, stated that the wallet is still under development and as such the Telegram’s in-built wallet will consist of just the basic features. In addition, Skuratov explained that users who are willing to access moe advanced functions like buying and exchanging Grams will have to contact third-party developers.
Early this month, Telegram launched TON testnet explorer as well as node software. In April, the firm rollen on its private beta to test the TON blockchain but was only accessible to a handful of world developers. At the time two unnamed testers stated that the blockchain proved to have very high transaction speed.
In the recent past, Cayman’s Island based crypto exchange platform known as Blackmoon said plans are at an advanced stage to list the yet to be released Gram token via a partnership with Swiss-based crypto custodian Gram Vault.
Before Blackmoon came out with the news of listing the token, a crypto exchange known as Liquid which is based in Japan had stated that it would act as a sales representative of Gram tokens for the Asian Market. However, sources close to Telegram dismissed the announcement afterwards.
Cointelegraph reports that Telegram intends to roll on the Gram token next month after the public testing for its underlying blockchain TON is finalized.
