The TON blockchain and Grams are rejecting being securities as it doesn’t fall under those criteria.

The question raised on telegram why the lockdown on digital assets in the first round of purchase agreement to which telegram did not provide a clear answer.

Telegram locked up its Gram for more than a year after the private sale. That lockdown was the reason SEC accused telegram that it provided reasonable conditions for the initial purchasers to resell their presale tokens and created a secondary market.

Bur Judge pointed out the restriction on the reselling grams pre-launch in the telegram purchase agreement with investors shut SEC. The hearing concluded with Judge assuring telegram that the judgment will be passed before April 30.

When gram investors are expecting to see the TON blockchain launch. The Judgement was reserved in the recent hearing cause of the primary injunction.
