SEC Unveils New Names of TON Potential Investors
Employees of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) continue to study the internal documentation of the TON project, unveiling more and more names of the initial investors. More recently, it became known that an ex-member of the board of directors of the Bitcoin Foundation, Meyer Malka, entered into a partnership with TON back in 2018. Also, Durov was asked which of the investors could potentially be a validator, and he replied: “We didn't put together a separate list of the purchasers who we would assume have experience in validating other networks, although it was obvious that certain investors… such as, for example, Micky Malka that we have discussed earlier, might… have experience in these processes of validation or at least were closely affiliated with parties that had experience in such processes.” The founder and head of ABBYY Lingvo, David Yang was also interested in investing in the TON project. The vast majority of investors put on average 5 - 10 million US dollars, and Kleiner Perkins bought GRAM tokens for a total of 30 million US dollars. Earlier we wrote that the SEC ordered Telegram to disclose the financial details of the TON project.
