Whitelist on the next round

Introduction

Poolico-platform.com is a platform for uniting investors into pools, for participation in ICO projects, on the most favorable terms at the early stages of the initial offer.

We are not employees of Telegram and do not conduct ICO on behalf of Telegram and its founders. The only official source of information about the telegram project is the website and the official twitter channel

The essence of our project is that we unite private investors in the pool, to participate in a closed primary offer of TON tokens. Each investor has the opportunity to invest his share through our platform. By registering and using your personal office, everyone can refill bitcoins or ether and buy the share in the pool. The funds are daily sent to the escrow account in US dollars, since participation in the primary offer of TON tokens is impossible by the crypto-currency. Your share is fixed in US dollars according to the average rate of bitcoin or ether at the time of receipt of funds. At the end of the fund-raising, all raised funds will be used to purchase the TON tokens at the price set at the time of purchase. After that, all tokens will be distributed among participants of our platform in proportion to their contributions in US dollars.

All funds are transferred to the escrow account on a daily basis, and in case of impossibility to participate in the TON initial offer, all funds will be returned to their investors. But we plan to participate in the next round of sales, which, according to our data, still going to be.

At this stage, the idea of ​​our platform is that we are raising a certain amount of money in the crypto currency and transferring them to the USD to participate in the next round of the closed offer of TON tokens (since it is known that participation in the primary offer of TON tokens is possible only in US dollars). Softkap in 20 million USD was established based on information received from participants in previous rounds. Also, based on the information described in the TON project white paper, you can see that the price of the TON token depends on the date of its purchase and the amount of tokens allready purchased, from this, making a one-time purchase in a larger volume is a more reasonable decision than buying by parts.

Problem Statement

There are three main hurdles in today’s environments:

  • Bitcoin and Ethereum don’t have the capacity to replace VISA or Mastercard, resulting in insufficient speeds and higher transaction costs.
  • Regular users starting to engage with Bitcoin and similar technologies often get confused when trying to buy, store, and send their coins.
  • The market of goods and services that can be bought with cryptocurrencies is limited, and the demand for crypto-assets comes mainly from investors, not consumers.

Outline of the Vision

Exchanging value should be as easy as exchanging information, and blockchain technology offers the ideal foundation to make this a reality. To reach mainstream adoption, a cryptocurrency — and its underlying blockchain design and ecosystem — requires:

  • Speed and scalability that allows for processing millions of transactions per second and accommodating hundreds of millions of active users and millions of applications.
  • Intuitive user interfaces that enable an average user to easily buy, store, and transfer value, as well as use decentralized apps in a natural way.
  • An engaged user base that serves as the pre-existing critical mass necessary for the ecosystem to grow and eventually become adopted by hundreds of millions of users.

A Brief History of Telegram

Telegram was founded in 2013 by libertarians to preserve freedom through encryption. The project has declared not-for-profit goals and remains independent and self-funded. Like Wikipedia, which for years has been a role model for the Telegram founders, Telegram has chosen a .org domain to emphasize its non-commercial status.

In October 2017, Telegram reached 170 million monthly users, delivering 70 billion messages every day. At least 500 000 new users join Telegram daily. At this rate, the service is expected to hit 200 million monthly users in Q1 2018. These users can provide the required critical mass to push cryptocurrencies towards widespread adoption.

Telegram Open Network (TON)

Telegram Open Network — a fast and secure blockchain and network

TON Blockchain

Below are some notable design choices that allow the TON Blockchain to process millions of transactions per second.

  • Infinite Sharding Paradigm
    To achieve scalability, TON has built-in support for sharding: TON blockchains can automatically split and merge to accommodate changes in load.
  • Instant Hypercube Routing
    TON blockchains use smart routing mechanisms to ensure that transactions between any two blockchains will always be processed swiftly, regardless of the size of the system.
  • Proof-of-Stake Approach
    TON uses a Proof-of-Stake approach in which processing nodes («validators») deposit stakes to guarantee their dependability and reach consensus through a variant of the Byzantine Fault Tolerant protocol.
  • 2-D Distributed Ledgers
    TON can «grow» new valid blocks on top of any blocks that were proven to be incorrect to avoid unnecessary forks.

TON Platform

The following components are scheduled to be released after the TON Blockchain core and will further increase the potential uses of the TON infrastructure.

  • TON Storage
    TON Storage is a distributed file-storage technology, accessible through the TON P2P Network and available for storing arbitrary files, with torrent-like access technology and smart contracts used to enforce availability.
  • TON Proxy
    TON Proxy is a network proxy/anonymizer layer used to hide the identity and IP addresses of TON nodes.
  • TON Payments
    TON Payments is a platform for micropayments and a micropayment channel network.
  • TON Services
    TON Services provides a platform for third-party services of any kind that enables smartphone-like friendly interfaces for decentralized apps and smart contracts, as well as a World Wide Web-like decentralized browsing experience.
  • TON DNS
    TON DNS is a service for assigning human-readable names to accounts, smart contracts, services, and network nodes.

Telegram Messenger-TON Integration

Telegram-TON integration will provide a clear path to cryptocurrencies for millions of people. Telegram Messenger will not only serve as an example of the possibilities offered by integrating with TON, but will also add unique features to the TON platform, leveraging Telegram’s massive user base and developed ecosystem.

Light Wallet

The TON architecture supports light clients that can run on mobile devices without consuming significant resources. TON light wallets will be built into Telegram applications, allowing millions of users to store their funds securely in the TON blockchain. The wallet owners will be the sole holders of the corresponding encryption keys.

External Secure IDs

According to Tokenmarket, 84 percent of blockchain-based projects have an active Telegram community, more than all other chat applications combined.Forbes and other media outlets have called Telegram the «cryptocurrency world’s preferred messaging app» and «as ubiquitous to the cryptocurrency world as Snapchat is to a teenager».

Ecosystem

Telegram’s existing ecosystem will offer simple ways of buying the TON coins (Grams), and a range of services to spend them on, driving demand and fundamental value for the cryptocurrency.

  • Bot Platform
    As of October 2017, more than 800 000 unique third-party bots are regularly used by 52 million Telegram users.
  • Groups and Channels
    The Telegram ecosystem includes millions of public group chats reaching up to 30 000 members and broadcast channels, the largest of which have several million subscribers.
  • Digital Content and Physical Goods
    Bots, channels, and groups provide a ready market for paid content and subscription services.
  • A Gateway to Decentralized Services
    Telegram will offer a searchable registry of decentralized services from its applications, providing a list of the most popular apps, as well as recommendations based on the user’s history of choices.

Uses of TON as a Cryptocurrency

In addition to payments for all digital and physical assets sold by individual merchants within the Telegram ecosystem and on other projects integrated with TON, the TON coins (Grams) will be used as:

› Commission («gas») paid to TON nodes («validators») for processing transactions and smart contracts;
› Stakes deposited by validators to be eligible to validate transactions and generate new blocks and coins;
› Capital lent out to validators in exchange for a share of their reward;
› Voting power required to support or oppose changes in the parameters of the protocol;
› Payment for services provided by apps built on the platform (TON Services);
› Payment for storing data securely in a decentralized way (TON Storage);
› Payment for registering blockchain-based domain names (TON DNS) and hosting TON-sites (TON WWW);
› Payment for hiding identity and IP addresses (TON Proxy);
› Payment for bypassing censorship imposed by local ISPs (TON Proxy).

Roadmap

The TON and Telegram technical roadmaps include the following milestones:

Token Distribution

To obtain the resources required to make TON a reality, Telegram is launching a token sale in Q1 2018. The token sale will likely use a SAFT10 to be converted 1:1 to native TON tokens (Grams) after the deployment of the TON Blockchain in Q4 2018.

After the TON Blockchain is fully deployed, the annual inflation rate derived from the fundamental parameters of TON is projected at two percent. This inflation represents a payment made by all members of the community to the validators for keeping the system functional.

Four percent of the supply (200 million Grams) will be reserved for the development team with a 4-year vesting period.

During the initial stage of active TON development, at least 52 percent of the entire supply will be retained by the TON Reserve to protect the nascent cryptocurrency from speculative trading and to maintain flexibility at the early stages of the evolution of the system.

The remaining 44 percent (2.2 billion Grams) can be sold in accordance with the formula below:

The price of the first token to be sold will be approximately 0.1 USD, with and each successive token will be priced one billionth higher than the previous one.

As a result, the additional supply coming from the TON Reserve will always be more expensive than the price paid by any of the existing buyers. This structure should allow the market to define the fair price and volume for the token sale.

Use Of Founds

More than 80 percent of collected funds will be spent on equipment, bandwidth, colocation, and user verification costs. The rest will be allocated for wages, offices, and legal and consulting services.

Telegram’s spending is projected at $400 million in the next three years (approximately $100 million in 2018, $130 millionin 2019, and $170 million in 2020).

Governance

The founders of Telegram will be responsible for the efficient use of funds resulting from any sale of tokens from the TON Reserve. Over time, all responsibilities related to TON and its Reserve will be transferred to the TON Foundation, a not-for-profit organization.

By 2021 the initial TON vision and architecture will have been implemented and deployed. TON will then let go of the «Telegram» element in its name and become «The Open Network».
From then on, the continuous evolution of the TON Blockchain will be maintained by the TON Foundation.
Telegram will serve as a launch pad for TON, ensuring its technological superiority and widespread adoption on the initial stages, but the future of TON is in the hands of the global open-source community.
