The initiation of The Open League, integration of stablecoin Tether (USDT), and other rewarding airdrops in April line up as factors that catalyzed the ecosystem’s traction and growth. As per Santiment, the wallets across the network surged 110% in the past 6 months to 16.8K wallets.

April saw a 90% increase in the count of smart contract deployments on TON, highlighting the increased developers’ activity. TON has seen the deployment of over 300 projects to date, with a significant portion being applications integrated with Telegram, a cloud messaging platform with 900 million monthly active users (MAU).

Notably, over the past 24 hours, Toncoin, the native token, has surged 12%, reaching back into the $5 range. This bullish rally emerged on the charts after the announcement of crypto VC firm Pantera Capital’s investment in the TON ecosystem. Time to examine the ecosystem’s token performance in the market.

Will TON Sustain its Momentum or Face Correction?

In April, Toncoin rallied to hit its all-time high (ATH) of $7.65. But the momentum was short-lived, as the altcoin gradually began falling and bottomed at $4.6 on Wednesday. The 24-hour price gain catalyzed the altcoin’s entry into the $5.3 zone. But will it test and onboard an upward trend?
