Telegram Formally Unveils Test Client For TON Blockchain
According to documents published on test.ton.org, encrypted instant messaging service provider Telegram formally published a test client for its Telegram Open Network (TON).
The readme information file reveals that the latest downloadable file registry is intended to distribute the first version of Lite Client for TON Blockchain Network, in addition to the appropriate sections of TON Blockchain Library.
The design of the Lite Client is a streamlined stable variant. A GitHub customer appeared to have posted a Lite Client version on May 25.
As per the readme folder on GitHub, the Lite Client, if correctly configured, links to a full node for the TON blockchain testnet and send some inquiries to it.
In addition to the Lite Client itself, customers can also create a smart contract after deploying a configuration file that links the Lite Client to a an exclusive server.
Users can thus begin developing unique smart contracts, check the status of prevailing smart contracts, and transmit messages to smart contracts, among other alternatives.
Customers can also employ Fift to compile, process, and debug smart contracts. Fift is a unique TON programming language published last week. The language is specifically intended to develop and administer TON blockchain smart contracts and interact with the TON Virtual Machine.
In April, Telegram supposedly conducted a confidential TON blockchain beta trial to a restricted amount of programmers across the globe. While no inferences were made based on the trials, two anonymous testers disclosed that the blockchain showed an “exceptionally high transaction speed.”
