LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 26, 2019
BUTTON Wallet, a leading messenger-based cryptocurrency solution for trading and buying digital assets, officially unveils the first free cryptocurrency testing playground on the Telegram Open Network (TON). In anticipation of their launch in October 2019, BUTTON is giving Telegram users a chance to buy and trade digital assets without the risk of losing real money.
“Cryptos biggest obstacle is mass adoption and what we’ve created will help people comfortable with trading cryptocurrency without using real money,” said Alex Safonov, CEO and Co-Founder, BUTTON Wallet. “With all the fanfare surrounding Facebook’s Libra digital currency, there hasn’t been a way to explore digital assets without risk, until now with BUTTON Wallet and the Telegram Open Network. Our goal is to give people an avenue to participate in peer-to-peer transactions without risks on one of the largest messenger platforms, Telegram. This will help teach consumers the ins and outs of how the messenger banking ecosystem works, creating consumer confidence and furthering mass-market adoption of digital assets.”
“There’s common fear around crypto which is preventing some people from becoming new users. Giving them the ability to practice performing transactions helps remove fear around trading real digital assets,” continued Rachael McCrary, COO at BUTTON Wallet.
Fift, TON’s smart contract language, is the only base language that can be used to build on the platform. Given the known challenges associated with TON implementation, it would be impossible without advanced infrastructure that would help software developers build and utilize GRAMS. BUTTON Wallet has made it possible for any user to try TON directly in Telegram. Any Telegram user can activate the TON wallet and receive the 6.6 testnet GRAMS on the account, making it one of the easiest and fastest ways to start using cryptocurrency.
How users access the TON testnet with BUTTON:
1) Download and install Telegram app on device
2) Search and find @BUTTONWalletBot
3) Tap Start and follow the creation steps to get your own multi-currency wallet
4) At the main menu, tap Activate TON Wallet
5) Agree with current rules and you are ready!
6) Tap Balance - you will see that you have a non-zero balance. The BUTTON Wallet team has provided some GRAMS to start with
7) Tap SEND and follow the steps. You can use @sendMeGrams as the destination address to send GRAMS via @nickname
8) Confirm the transaction
The TON release is one of the most valuable events since the arrival of Bitcoin, bringing cryptocurrency to a new level of mass adoption, thanks to Telegram Messenger’s 300 million users.
