What is TON?

The Open Network (TON) is putting crypto in every pocket. By building a Web3 ecosystem within Telegram Messenger, TON is giving billions the opportunity to own their digital identity, data, and assets.

Our Role

Established in Switzerland in 2023, The Open Network Foundation is a non-profit organization funded entirely by community contributions. The Open Network Foundation acts in the interests of the community by supporting initiatives that help achieve The Open Network's mission.
The Open Network Foundation empowers TON projects without controlling TON technology and is one of many network contributors in the decentralized TON Community. TON operates on an open-source codebase, allowing contributions from anyone, and has no single controlling authority.

Grants Program

The Open Network Foundation empowers community-driven initiatives to reach their full potential by offering coordination, support, and grants. This assistance is extended to projects identified, demanded, and valued by the wider TON Community.
