At the Token2049 conference, Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram, outlined ambitious plans to evolve the platform into a comprehensive crypto empire.

He discussed introducing several innovative features aimed at revolutionising how users interact with digital assets.

Among these features are the capabilities for users to purchase assets and create Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), signaling a significant shift in Telegram's functionality towards more financially-oriented services.

Furthermore, Durov announced the integration of the stablecoin USDT (CRYPTO:USDT) on the Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain, showcasing Telegram's commitment to becoming a major player in the cryptographic space.

This development marks Telegram's transition from a messaging app to a multifaceted ecosystem catering to the burgeoning demand for digital currency and blockchain solutions.
