Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve put together some of our most frequently asked questions on the Gram token sale. For support, chat to our 24/7 support team or join our community on Telegram. We’re always here to help.

Telegram Open Network (TON) is a blockchain network project designed to be fast, secure, scalable and capable of handling millions of transactions per second. TON is designed to be a competitor to Ethereum’s smart contracts and decentralized applications while also being extremely scalable.
According to Telegram, TON has been created in response to the inability of existing blockchain platforms to push for mainstream cryptocurrency adoption. TON’s solution meets the speed and scalability needs required for mass adoption of cryptocurrency while retaining its decentralized nature.
The Gram token is the native utility token of TON and it is denoted by the TON triangular symbol. Gram will serve as the principal cryptocurrency for the in-app economy on Telegram and will also be available for external use. Until now, the only way to buy Gram tokens has been through private sale rounds, which were not open to the public. The Gram Token Sale on Liquid will be the first opportunity for the general public to buy Gram tokens. We anticipate Gram becoming one of the largest cryptocurrencies by market cap, as well as potentially the world’s most adopted cryptocurrency with the coming launch of TON to Telegram’s 260 million active users.
Gram will be used for a variety of services on TON:
  • Commission ("gas") paid to TON nodes ("validators") for processing transactions and smart contracts.
  • Stakes deposited by validators to be eligible to validate transactions and generate new blocks and coins.
  • Capital lent out to validators in exchange for a share of their reward.
  • Voting power required to support or oppose changes in the parameters of the protocol.
  • Payment for services provided by apps built on the platform (TON Services). Payment for storing data securely in a decentralized way (TON Storage).
  • Payment for registering blockchain-based domain names (TON DNS) and hosting TON-sites (TON WWW).
  • Payment for hiding identity and IP addresses (TON Proxy)
  • Payment for bypassing censorship imposed by local ISPs (TON Proxy).
  • Gram will also be available for use outside of TON like any other cryptocurrency currently in the market.
We are working with Gram Asia for the purposes of this sale. Gram Asia is the largest holder of Gram tokens from Asia, and a trusted partner of Liquid, with a long-standing relationship forged through strong business ties. Gram Asia supports the TON ecosystem by deploying its considerable capital and vast network of strategic partners to provide operations in the form of an Incubator, Node, Liquidity and Payment. To foster widespread integration with the TON ecosystem, Gram Asia works with licensed financial institutions to provide safe, secure and stable payment gateways for merchants in Asia. For more information, please see: https://gramasia.com.
The tokens being sold will not be released until after TON goes live (mainnet release), in accordance with the delivery schedule. Purchasers will not be able to transfer, withdraw, or trade the Grams before they are released.
You will be able to buy Gram tokens starting from July 10th 2019, 11am UTC, until July 12th 2019, 11.30pm UTC. Sales will be completed when Grams are delivered in accordance with the delivery schedule.
USDC and USD
Gram tokens are priced at 4 USD per token, but with the Qash rebate, you can effectively pay as little as 3.50 USD by holding Qash.
Grams will be reflected in your Liquid wallet as soon as you pre-order in the Gram sale. All buyer funds from the sale will be converted to USDC and kept in a segregated wallet under escrow until the Gram tokens are delivered. Grams will be minted and delivered to your Liquid Gram wallet as per the delivery schedule following the TON mainnet launch planned for October 2019.
