Gram tokens will appear on the Blackmoon platform's exchange, which Pavel Durov's messenger Telegram plans to release as part of its Telegram Open Network (TON) project. This was reported to vc.ru by a representative of the Blackmoon Financial Group.
One of the founders of the Blackmoon Financial Group is the former deputy general director of VKontakte Ilya Perekopsky, who has been Vice President of Telegram since April 2018.
Blackmoon users will be able to store Gram tokens and trade with each other in pairs with other cryptocurrencies and fiat funds. Gram tokens will be listed on the exchange from the Swiss company Gram Vault, with which Blackmoon agreed on a partnership. Gram will appear on Blackmoon after Telegram officially launches TON, a company representative said, but did not specify the timing and cost of tokens.
Among Gram Vault's clients are the largest investors of TON, a Blackmoon spokesman says but does not name specific investors. Gram Vault operates under Swiss anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing legislation under the supervision of the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
We believe in the prospects of the Telegram blockchain and plan to promote liquidity for Gram in every possible way. In addition, Blackmoon due to available resources will provide users with the opportunity to purchase Gram from bank cards, which at first will be a unique offer
,says Sergey Vasin, Operations Director of Blackmoon.
Blackmoon is not the first exchange to announce Gram token trading. But this is the only company that has a direct relationship with the leadership of Telegram. However, as is the case with other exchanges, in the announcement of Blackmoon there are no comments from Telegram representatives.
