Telegram has around 700M users from all over the world. Durov believes an NFT marketplace will be a huge success where users can put up usernames, groups, and channel links for auction.
Telegram is still exploring various aspects of NFT technology that the platform could adopt for its users. Durov’s opinion on the NFT marketplace might hint at a possible launch in the future.
Telegram was also involved with The Open Network (TON) to create the layer-1 blockchain to auction domain names. The founder’s interest might’ve perked after the success of this project.
