It became known that in mid-August, Telegram had removed public addresses of channels linked to channels that had been empty or inactive over the past year.
He added that almost all of these addresses would be gradually returned to the general public, but with algorithmic and geolocational limitations that prevented a narrow circle of people from using them.
The fact is, until recently, 70% of all Telegram's nickels were reserved in inactive channels by cybersquatters from Iran, which created an entire "bugyard" name. This prevented millions of Telegram users from choosing suitable addresses for their own records, groups and channels.
With regard to the most valuable short addresses, Durova believes that they can be sold through auction, recalling that last week he spoke of the benefits that the creation of a marketplay on the TON block with its smart contracts for the sale of digital products, ranging from emoticons to nickels and domain names, could bring.
It should also be added that, according to vc.ru, on 29 August, Telegram Info issued a petition calling for Telegram to return the seized nickels to the owners because such channels were used as "".
