Durov couldn’t do that. Users have raised and donated over $1 billion to develop the TON ecosystem

The TON Foundation was formed by members of the blockchain community who wanted to keep the project alive after it was announced by Telegram in August 2020 following a lawsuit from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Durov couldn't do that.  Users have raised and donated over $1 billion to develop the TON ecosystem

Donations were made in TON, the native cryptocurrency of the ecosystem. In the 10 days since April 7th, nearly 530 million TON have been donated, worth just over $1 billion. The funds came through 176 individual donations, most of which came from large holders. Among them, 18 donations amounted to more than 10 million TON and 37 – more than 4 million, a representative of the TON Foundation told CoinDesk.

Of course, the TON Foundation does not disclose the names of such wealthy donors, but the organization’s spokesman noted:

“We think that all donors are well aware that the success of TON is helped by having a well-capitalized fund to support the ecosystem.”

TON also recently received a $250 million investment in its first ecosystem fund, with Huobi and Kucoin as venture investors.

Although toncoin is independent of Telegram, the project was approved in December 2021 by Telegram founder Pavel Durov. In early 2021, Andrey Rogozov, a founding member of the TON Foundation, said that toncoin was on track to be fully integrated into the messaging app, which would make the coin available to Telegram’s 500 million monthly users. A spokesman said on Wednesday that no such plans had been “explicitly confirmed”.

The car is one of the prototypes created by the Mercedes-Benz racing department led by Rudolf Uhlenhout in 1955. The ability to accelerate to almost 290 km / h made it one of the fastest cars of that time.

The auctions were held behind closed doors, so only a narrow circle of authorized persons, including collectors, could participate in them, one of which eventually became the owner of a rare coupe.

The all-time auction record has so far been a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sports car sold four years ago for $48.4 million.

For the first time in eight years Xbox surpassed PlayStation

Japan is the birthplace of Sony and the PlayStation, so it is not surprising that in this market, the Sony console often outperforms the Microsoft set-top box in sales. However, the situation changed last week.

For the first time in eight years, Xbox surpassed PlayStation.  In Japan, Xbox Series S outperformed PS5 last week

According to sources, last week the Xbox console was ahead of the PlayStation in sales, and this happened for the first time in eight years.

We are talking about weekly sales, so in a normal situation this information would hardly be interesting, but still such an important achievement for Microsoft is worth attention.

True, the point is not at all in the decline in demand for the PS5 and the growth in demand for the Xbox, but simply in the availability of one or another set-top box. Actually, it is the offer that has been the main factor for the entire year and a half since the launch of the current generation consoles.

So, to the numbers. Last week, only 2693 PS5 consoles were sold in Japan, only 105 Xbox Series X consoles were sold, while the Series S sold 6120 units. That is, it was the younger Microsoft console that bypassed the Sony consoles.

For comparison, in the two weeks from April 25 to May 8, more than 46,000 PS5 consoles were sold. That is, their availability was simply many times higher. And the Xbox Series S sold 10,610 units.

In any case, the undisputed leader remains the Nintendo Switch. Last week, 35,868 Switch OLEDs, 20,443 Switch units and 9011 Switch Lite units were sold.
