Ton Chain, the Layer 1 blockchain with a deep connection with Telegram, published its 2023 roadmap. Major product developments this year include building a token bridge between Ethereum, BSC, and Ton, developing Ton connect, a unified protocol for interaction between TON apps and wallets, designing a tokenomic deflation mechanism and more. On the chain itself, it will update the Elector and Config system smart contracts to make it easier to develop staking smart contracts and to allow staking pool participants to vote in network-wide votes onchain and a universal DAO smart contract and a new staking pool (nominator pool) smart contract with almost no limits.
A vote is also set to take place this month on the TON blockchain in which validators will decide whether inactive miners’ wallets are to be suspended, which currently hold about 21.3% of the total Ton coins supply. Inactive mining wallets will not be subject to the vote if they are activated before the voting. If the vote passes, the proposed suspension of wallet addresses would last for four years, with transactions unable to be made from the wallets during that time, which means 21.3% of total $TON will not be tradable.
