Following an announcement by the developers of TON Society to dedicate $5 million in Toncoin for enhancing user identity verification with palm-scanning technology, TON’s value saw a notable rise. This initiative seeks to implement digital identity verification for Telegram users within the next five years, rewarding participants with 1 million TON.
