What else is known? Trading of the TONUSDT perpetual contract will be conducted in a 24-hour mode, the tick size will be 0,0001, the funding rate will be from +2% to -2% and funding settlements will be made every four hours.

Earlier, Binance announced the listing of the native token of the Axelar (AXL) cross-chain protocol on the spot market, resulting in a 76% increase in the asset’s exchange rate.

A day earlier, Pavel Durov announced that Telegram will start using TON tokens to accept payment for advertising banners in channels, and their authors will receive 50% of the income.

At the same time, he noted that Telegram does not intend to concentrate large amounts of TON on its accounts, as this would lead to centralization of the project. Thus, the share of supply of the asset on the accounts of the messenger will be limited to 10%, the surplus will be sold to long-term investors at a discount and blocking period for a period of 1 to 4 years.

At the time of writing the news, TON occupies the 15th line of the ranking of cryptocurrencies with a capitalization of $9,8 billion. Over the week, its rate rose by 36%.
