Art meets History: Pawel Durow #6
The founder of VK and Telegram
Age: ~37 years
At the age of 22, Durow had already developed his social network VK, but at 28 he had to leave the project due to disagreements with shareholders. However, this also had good things, because it allowed him to focus on Telegram, the #messenger that made Durow famous worldwide.
However, until 2018, Durow's name was not yet associated with cryptocurrencies. But then it happened that Telegram announced the #development of Telegram Open Network, a secure embedded #proxy and #blockchain #platform anonymizer. Thus, Durow had his foot in the #blockchain and #cryptocurrency world. Durow plans to start messaging and data storage services and payment tools on it in its own cryptocurrency of #GRAM project.
2018 was also the year that Messenger received $1.7 billion from more than 170 investors to develop two new projects. Namely, the cryptocurrency Gram and the blockchain platform TON.
Thus, Durow is also a well-known name in the blockchain world, although possibly few really know it consciously.
