Encrypted messaging app Telegram will launch its digital currency, the Gram, in October, investors have told mainstream media.
As the New York Times reported on Aug. 27, three anonymous investors in Telegram’s $1.7 billion private initial coin offering (ICO) said the company had confirmed it would issue the first tokens in two months’ time.
The long-term goal for executives is to make Gram available to all of Telegram’s roughly 300 million users, the investors added.
If true, Telegram would beat Facebook’s Libra in launching a public global digital currency. As the New York Times notes, little is known about Gram on a technical level, and little attention has come from regulators compared with the giant reaction to Libra.
Telegram would also beat another entity keen on issuing a Libra competitor, the People’s Bank of China, or PBoC, which this week announced a rollout for its digital currency would begin on Nov. 11 this year.
Do you think Telegram's GRAM coin will be used by Telegram's 300M+ userbase?

Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse will be interviewed by Julia Chatterley of CNN today on September 11th, 2019.
The interview will be a question and answer type interview and will be focused around XRP and Ripple's plan for global adoption.
Members of the Ripple community took this piece of news eagerly, many trying to found out the exact time when the interview will take place. However, that information remains unclear.
Recently it was reported that the Ripple-backed MoneyGram payment service and the Visa giant have joined forces to launch a P2P debit card deposit service.
Many in the Ripple community assumed that since MoneyGram is using XRP now, after the recent accusation of the international payments provider by Ripple, the new debit card service is going to start utilizing XRP as soon as the debit card expands its area of service beyond the US.
However, there has been no official confirmation or denial on behalf of Ripple so far.
Perhaps the coming interview will shed light on this matter as well as many others.
