Conclusion: we made an experiment in China and it proved to be successful. Free TON will indeed have great interest in China and the potential opportunities for massive education (teenagers, students, millenial gen) !

SOME CHALLENGES:

  1. freeton.org is inaccessible for Chinese users due to Great Firewall

  2. TON Surf cannot be used in China (Firewall, Appstores, language, interface)

  3. Extraton has no mobile version. Mobile users in China – over 60%

  4. Free TON is not listed on any of the Chinese exchanges

PLANS FOR THE NEXT 1-2 MONTHS:

To retain the Chinese users who joined us during the Chinese New Year Campaign, we need to complete all the Free TON infrastructure for China to make it more user-friendly for the Chinese users.

Our plans:

  1. Proposal for the development Chinese localization of TON Surf

  2. Contest to Integrate voting mechanism into the Chinese website

  3. Partnerships with the Chinese exchanges (Hotcoin, MXC, etc) and Huobi/OKex

  4. Gather the first Depool in China

  5. Prepare original manuals, presentations and articles about Free TON in Chinese

  6. Promotion campaigns, Lantern Festival (元宵节), Wechat Promos

  7. Contests for the White Paper translation, best Chinese dapps on Free TON contests, etc

  8. Create non-profit FreeTON Academy in China with support all FreeTON activities, projects, promo, hackathons and education programs

OUR REQUEST:

In order to accelerate our efforts for Free TON adoption in China, we need to deploy the 2nd & the 3rd batch requested initially, namely: 400,000 TONs.

Hope to get affirmation.Thanks!!
