The influence of blockchain on finance

Experts who understand the intricacies of financial systems, split in the opinions regarding the influence of the TON blockchain and Gram cryptocurrency on the financial system. First, inside TON blockchain will be a high transaction rate that determines its popularity. Secondly, there will be an opportunity to interact with other financial instruments, so the Gram and the TON platform will be able to compete with banks and other financial institutions.

There is another opinion, according to which the new Gram cryptocurrency will be popular only among the users of the Telegram messenger and will not be able to squeeze out state and commercial banks.
