๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฟ This week I visited Uzbekistan โ€“ and thoroughly enjoyed it ๐Ÿ‘

โค๏ธ Uzbekistan loves Telegram: over 70% of the countryโ€™s 37 million people is on Telegram and their entire economy is run on our platform (every business in the country has a Telegram bot or channel). We are proud of this popularity and we love Uzbekistan back โค๏ธ

โœจDuring my trip to Uzbekistan I was amazed by the modern infrastructure of quickly developing Tashkent, the mountainous landscapes of Eastern Uzbekistan, and the rich history of Buhara and Samarkand ๐Ÿ’–

๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ Iโ€™ve met lots of young and talented people with good hearts. I am grateful for the warm welcome and hope to stay more in the sunny Tashkent later this year ๐Ÿ˜Ž

๐Ÿท The recent Telegram update revolutionizes how people interact with mini apps. Now people can collapse apps and switch between them. In the future, this new bottom bar will also store web pages and other content for later reading.

๐Ÿ’ซ This update also introduces the ability for channel owners to publish paid photos and videos, which users can buy with Stars. Like mini app developers, channel owners can convert the Stars they collect into Toncoin, with virtually no commission from Telegram.

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ฟ I recently returned from Kazakhstan โ€” the economic powerhouse of Central Asia. I visited majestic Astana, vibrant Almaty, picturesque Burabay, and the scenic Charyn Canyon ๐Ÿฅบ

โฌ†๏ธ The beauty of Kazakhstan can only be rivaled by its ambitions. The country attracts international companies and tech startups with business-friendly policies and favorable taxes. It also improves its edge in education and science by supporting innovative schools and universities ๐Ÿ“˜

๐Ÿ“ž 12.5 million of 20 million Kazakhs use Telegram monthly, a 25% increase from last year. We are proud to serve as the main communication platform for the Kazakh people and hope to continue to be a tool that accelerates its rapid economic and digital transformation๐Ÿซก

โšก๏ธ 2024 will go down in history as the year when hundreds of millions of people became familiar with blockchain. Weโ€™re proud that Telegram is at the epicenter of this societal transformation ๐Ÿคต

๐Ÿ”ฅTo keep the fire going, this month, we will introduce a mini app store and an in-app browser with support for Web3-pages ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

โ—๏ธ We will also step up our efforts to fight the scammers seeking to defraud new entrants into the crypto realm. Soon, Telegram will begin displaying the month of registration and principal country for public accounts (similar to Instagram). We will also allow organizations to use their mini apps to issue labels for channels, creating a decentralized marketplace for third-party verification โœ”๏ธ

๐Ÿ˜ Thanks to more transparency and decentralization, Telegram users will know more about the opportunities and the dangers of this new world ๐Ÿ’ช
