Developers plan to launch TON without Telegram involvement

US courts have issued a preliminary injunction against Telegram's token issuance. The TON Community Foundation said that they are now discussing possible ways to launch the Telegram Open Network (TON) without the participation of Telegram. According to Fedor Skuratov, founder of the TON Community Foundation, all the code required to launch TON already exists, previously released by Telegram. The community only needs to generate the first batch of transactions, the genesis block, and provide at least 13 computers (called validators) to run the network.
