TON Network Garners Multiple Investments
Earlier this week, Web3 investment firm Animoca Brands made a strategic investment in the system, becoming the network’s largest validator. According to the announcement, the company plans to bolster TON’s gaming projects, including TON Play, aiming to launch Web3-based games directly on Telegram.
TON also recently raised an investment from a subsidiary of MEXC’s global cryptocurrency exchange MEXC, MEXC Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, MEXC and the TON Foundation have entered into a strategic partnership aiming to promote global Web3 accessibility by lowering the barriers of entry.
With the new grant, Web3 advancements within the TON network gain further momentum, suggesting a shifting emphasis towards the integration of decentralized and user-centric technologies that lead to a more interconnected, transparent and community-driven digital landscape.
