Telegram Implements Toncoin Payment Integration For Ads, TON Price Sees Impact

Telegram, the renowned messaging platform, recently unveiled a new feature that allows users to promote their channels through advertising. With the launch of this feature, users can now purchase ad space using Toncoins (TON), the native cryptocurrency powered by the TON blockchain.

Telegram Implements TON Blockchain For Ad Payments

Acknowledging the potential for channel owners to generate advertising revenue, Telegram’s announcement highlighted that channels collectively accumulate over 1 trillion views each month. 

Realizing this opportunity, Telegram has implemented a revenue-sharing model, enabling channel owners with a minimum of 1000 subscribers to receive 50% of the ad revenue generated from ads displayed on their channels.

The decision to integrate the TON blockchain into this feature was driven by various reasons, as noted in the social media platform’s announcement on Sunday:

We chose the TON Blockchain because it has low fees, high transaction speeds – and holds a record for the number of transactions it can process per second. Anyone can now promote their bot or channel – with budgets as low as a handful of Toncoins. When creating a Telegram ad, you choose the exact channels where you’d like it to appear, so you have full control over their context.

Telegram CEO Pavel Durov had previously emphasized the importance of fast and secure ad payments and withdrawals, expressing that the TON blockchain would be the exclusive platform for these transactions. Durov stated:

To ensure ad payments and withdrawals are fast and secure, we will exclusively use the TON blockchain. Similar to our approach with Telegram usernames on Fragment, we will sell ads and share revenue with channel owners in Toncoin. This will create a virtuous circle, in which content creators will be able to either cash out their Toncoins — or reinvest them in promoting and upgrading their channels.

TON Shows Bullish Momentum

As Telegram unveils these new features and developments that can significantly boost the adoption and usage of the TON token, the cryptocurrency has responded positively. 

Over the past 24 hours, TON has surged by more than 5%, reaching a current trading price of $5.30. This surge adds to its impressive 100% price increase over the past 30 days alone.

Notably, the announcement has also caused a substantial increase in the trading volume of TON, which has soared to $234,869,370 in the past 24 hours. This represents a rise of over 74% compared to Sunday’s trading volume, according to CoinGecko data.

Furthermore, the TON token is approaching its all-time high (ATH) mark of $5.69, reached on March 25. With the introduction of these new features in Telegram and the notable increase in trading volume, the token appears to be on the verge of setting a new ATH in the coming days if the demand continues to rise.

However, the token must surpass the significant resistance level of $5.45 for this scenario to unfold. This price level has proven to be a hurdle for the token, as it has attempted three times to break through and consolidate above it to reach a new ATH but has failed. Overcoming this resistance level is crucial before the token can approach new ATH levels.

On the TON/USD 4-hour chart, the support level that could potentially halt a price correction following the recent uptrend is $5.26. This support level acts as a buffer to prevent a significant downward correction in price.
