Chief among these is a high-profile partnership with The Open Network (TON) blockchain which was announced on Nov.

Siu also notes that Animoca’s acquisition of social casual gaming platform Gamee in July 2020 is set to capitalize on its growing presence as a gaming platform on Telegram.

“There were no advertising and in-app purchases, and nothing was allowed in Telegram until recently with the integration of TON.
