Morgenshtern becomes an official TON ambassador
Morgenshtern is a hugely popular Russian rap artist who has officially become one of the biggest media figures in the country’s history. In July 2021, Spotify claimed that Morgenshtern had become the most streamed Russian musician in the service’s history.
In his recently released piece titled “Why?”, Alisher mentioned the Telegram Open Network Coin in one of the verses. In his song, the artist says that he sold all his Bitcoins and bought TON instead.
I sold all my bitcoin and bought TON, yeah
The day before the song was released, Alisher asked his followers to guess how he spent $10 million in a one-time payment. Only a few assumed that the Russian superstar spent his money on crypto. The next day, Morgenstern published an article, telling his followers about the existence of Toncoin and why he chose to invest in it.
Private TON Community
To support future development of the project, Alisher has announced a private community that will only be available to users who pay 1 ton for entry. The private Telegram channel contains exclusive content from the author including a new song that will be released to the general public at midnight.
At the end of his post, Alisher shared with his followers that he personally spoke with the TON team and decided to actively support the creation of Pavel Durov in the future. The artist also said that TON is currently run by “the brightest minds of our homeland”, referring to Russia. According to the post, Alisher will talk about the project even more in the future.
