Telegram "force majeure" clause is activated or not, without the need to postpone investment funds due to postponement of the network release

According to Cointelegraph, although Telegram promised that "if the blockchain network is delayed, it will return funds to investors," but the SEC's lawsuit may activate the "force majeure" clause in the acquisition agreement. As the Russian media agency the Bell emphasized in a report on October 14, the force majeure clause includes natural disasters, terrorist threats and war outbreaks, as well as legal or regulatory actions by the relevant authorities. Therefore, even if Telegram delays the release of the network, it may not be necessary to return funds to investors.
