The launch was previously scheduled for Sept. 1, according to the sources knowledgeable about the job's progress, but has been postponed a couple of days for uncertain reasons.According Mitja Goroshevsky, CTO of TON Labs, that will be currently focusing on resources for devs, there are 100 nodes preserved by Telegram itself.
Several more are preserved by his own startup, helmed by shareholders in Telegram's token sale, which increased $1.7 billion in ancient 2018.«Source code for a complete node that could access testnet, make and confirm cubes was published. Lite customer was released.

THE GRAM TOKEN

This usefulness token will be used as a member of the in-app ecosystem on Telegram, although use cases will be discharged later on. This currency will also function as the«reward» compensated to TON validators for processing network trades and contracts that are smart.

If this release is not possible, Telegram will have to refund investors of its Gram token in full. The coming months will be very crucial for this project, as a great deal of people are keeping tabs on the event. If Telegram should happen to fail regarding this deadline, the job may be doomed from day one.
