A very favorable environment for scamming and spamming

As soon as TON gained fame and became recognizable by a large group of Telegram users, scammers entered the ecosystem and started to profit at the newcomers’ expense. With tiny transaction fees, The Open Network became the hotbed for various fraudulent schemes aimed at stealing your crypto assets. It is the reverse side of blockchain’s advantages.

You might have seen these spam transactions convincing you to enter the seed phrase on a bogus site. Akin to spam mail at off-chain services, users continue to suffer from constant transactions consisting of malicious links. Unfortunately, the developers of The Open Network cannot forbid such transactions due to the asynchronous nature of blockchain. The best method to protect yourself from spam transactions is to do your own research and under no circumstances enter your seed phrase, except when activating your non-custodial wallet.

A bunch of popular wallet apps — e.g., Tonkeeper and Tonhub — started to hide small transfers of Toncoin. More likely, the number of such transactions will only grow, leading developers to build up a filtering system for incoming messages which will help separate the wheat from the chaff. Each day scammers come up with something new and unique: recently, users started to receive a spam jetton, i.e., a token on The Open Network, named “Account banned.” It is better to ignore these tokens and hide them if they disturb you.

We wrote a detailed article a few week ago about how to avoid becoming easy prey for scammers. It will help you not fall into the hands of scammers.

2023-01-17 20:34:36TON Grant Program: Fall 2022 review

In September, October, and November 2022, the TON grant committee approved a handful of projects to receive funding.

TONDaddy

TONDaddy is an analytics platform for ".ton" domain names. It is a project by TonX Studio, a developer of Web3 infrastructure on TON.

TONDaddy monitors TON DNS activity and helps users select alternative domain name options. For example, if you enter “user” in the search field, you’ll see open and closed auctions containing the word “user.”

The TON Foundation provided the grant for continued development of the (TON native) analytics service which will provide more useful insights to users in the future.

OpenMask

OpenMask is a browser-based TON crypto wallet, analogous to MetaMask. OpenMaks aims to set itself apart from the pack with its array of modern features.

It received a grant to expand wallet functionalities and build on the website documentation. Note that this (wallet) grant was specifically provided as this was a browser-based wallet project, which meets the community needs.

Rift (formerly dBuilder)

This is an instrument for Python developers providing a framework to create smart contracts on TON.

The service’s mission is to lower the entry barrier to TON development and make writing smart contracts more accessible.

Web3 Campus

A Web3 development education website.

Web3 Campus intends to create courses that educate various professions in Web3, including courses on the TON ecosystem. It aims to be the Web3 of Coursera, whereby freelancer Web3 content instructors can receive payments in crypto.

A grant was awarded to create more educational resources on the TON blockchain.

SmartSign

A service for creating electronic NFT signatures.

SmartSign develops unique use cases for TON NFT technology, such as minting blockchain signatures that can be used like regular signatures — i.e., to hand out autographs or sign documents.

SmartSign received a grant to advance its ideas and launch a full NFT signature service.

2023-01-16 20:45:24Pump-and-dump schemes as a means to manipulate the market — A message on how to spot them and avoid them

The TON DeFi segment of the ecosystem has been on a steady rise lately. Unfortunately, it’s also attracted some bad actors who want to swindle people for financial gains. Today, we want to talk about one common trading tactic used to manipulate crypto markets whereby unsuspecting investors may get burned.

The tactic is pump-and-dump (P&D) schemes, a method that artificially and rapidly inflates the price of an asset and crashes shortly thereafter.

How it works:

A group of people coordinates a massive buy of a cryptocurrency, which subsequently sends the asset’s price through the roof, with all of them selling simultaneously at the highest possible price.

The result is a painful crash in the asset’s price, leaving investors with deep losses and questions surrounding the true intentions of the project.

How to play it safe

The first thing to keep in mind always is that any investment in cryptocurrencies carries an inherent risk.

The next thing we recommend everyone do is to DYOR, “do your own research.” It’s best to set some time aside to dig into a project’s specifics.

Learning who is behind the project, their resources, how public they are, how transparent they are, how much experience they have, etc., would be a good place to start.
Another area to pay attention to is the liquidity of the project’s coin on DEXs — the lower the liquidity, the easier it is to manipulate it.

Any project can fall victim to this kind of nefarious trading activity — even those with a stellar reputation and a trustworthy dev team.

The only thing that needs to happen is putting in a sum of money big enough to move the markets upward.

Naturally, projects with low funding are the most vulnerable to P&D attacks because even relatively small injections of capital are enough to disrupt these markets.

Be careful of P&D schemes.

DeFi on TON has been expanding at an unprecedented rate, but market participants need to remember the risks when considering investing in projects.

We also recommend reading our guide to digital safety to learn about how to be responsible when investing.

Disclaimer:

This post is not reporting on a specific incident. The TON Foundation and TON Community do not conduct analyses of crypto projects and do not make official public reports.

Our task is to bring the issue of P&Ds to your attention because they may appear in the development process of TON DeFi.

First Native Staking

MyTonWallet becomes the first wallet to provide staking on the official smart contract.

Staking is wholly decentralized and managed by the official TON Nominator smart contract. Neither the developers nor anyone else has access to the funds on your deposit.

Reserved funds are used to keep the network operating using its proof-of-stake mechanism. Not only do the nominators receive passive income from holding TON, but also directly influence the overall growth and development of The Open Network by participating in voting.

TON holders with a balance of 10,000 or more can make their first deposits through the MyTonWallet interface. A new version of the official smart contract is expected soon, in which the lower deposit threshold will be significantly reduced.

We encourage new users to try MyTonWallet right now. In turn, we are getting back to labs to please you again with new exclusive features very soon.

SlowMist, an in-demand auditing firm, has audited the security of the TON blockchain’s core.

The audit was a resounding success because no vulnerabilities were found. The report can be found on Toncoin’s page on CoinMarketCap in the “Audits” section.

The latest @wallet bot update: a new interface, a QR code scanner, and t.me domains

The team behind the @wallet Telegram bot has released a new update that delivers quality-of-life improvements to make your crypto experience even more accessible.

A new interface

The user experience wouldn’t be complete without a streamlined interface. In this latest update, the UI now contains a “Paste” button, which makes entering long wallet addresses much smoother.

Moreover, the send crypto screen has a built-in QR code scanner.

TON Web3 addresses

Speaking of long addresses — @wallet has integrated support for short human-readable “username.t.me” domains to send and receive Toncoin, eliminating the possibility of bungling long addresses or copying the wrong one. You’ll have to visit Telegram’s domain platform, Fragment, to purchase a domain, but more information is available here.

Transaction history

Rounding out this line-up of solid improvements is a revamped transaction history. After making transactions with your Telegram contacts, you’ll now see their avatars instead of colored circles — a nice little touch making your history more visually pleasant.

To experience these new features, you must update the Telegram app to its latest version.
