TON Foundation, the steward of the cryptocurrency project, will make sending TON feel like sending a text message. The bot has been used by 800,000 Telegram accounts and aims to make transactions more user-friendly.

"We anticipate that this functionality will extend into the consumer to business payments so that people can easily acquire goods and services by sending toncoin via bots in the Telegram app," the foundation said.
