Orbs, a public, open, decentralized blockchain infrastructure and a major player in the Telegram Open Network (TON) ecosystem, has released its TON Access service to the general public.
By using HTTP requests to the blockchain state from the browser, TON Access functions as a decentralized, remote procedure call (RPC) provider tailored to the needs of TON decentralized applications (dApps), according to information from Orbs shared with Finbold on March 23.
After a successful beta testing period during which over 100,000 unique users per month made an average of 1.9 million queries per day, TON Access has now been released to the general public.
TON Access has been developed as an alternative RPC provider in response to the centralization problems experienced by some of the most widely used decentralized applications on Ethereum.
TON Acess explained
TON Access is a decentralized RPC network that dApps may use to prevent introducing a centralized point of failure into otherwise decentralized projects.
Orbs Network, which powers TON Access, is a decentralized blockchain ecosystem that uses Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus to manage an estimated $100 million in staked assets.
TON Access makes it simple for developers to integrate an RPC endpoint into their dApps by providing a small code snippet that can be pasted directly into the dApp’s client code. This service works with TON’s most widely used RPC protocols, including TonCenter HTTP API v2, TonHub HTTP API v4, and Raw ADNL Proxy.
TON.vote, the official TON DAO governance platform, and TON.api, the top TON blockchain explorer, also use TON Access. Megaton Finance, the most significant decentralized exchange on TON by TVL, also uses TON Access.
Orbs is working on dApp development
Notably, the Orbs team has been hard at work creating dApps on the TON platform, which the TON Foundation has approved.
In light of TON’s growing integration with the Telegram messaging software, the business thinks it will soon become the blockchain of mass adoption.
Notably, back in February, Orbs hosted TON’s Hackathons in London and Tel Aviv, the first-ever worldwide hackathon for TON, with a $250,000 prize pool.
