Brought to you by the Liquid team to help you make sense of crypto.
The Gram Token Sale is coming to Liquid on July 10. Here's your complete guide to everything you need to do to prepare.
What is the Gram Token Sale?
Telegram is taking crypto mainstream. The secure instant-messaging service boasts more than 200 million users sending more than 70 billion messages a day. At the heart of it all: The Gram token.
The Telegram Open Network (TON) will expose Telegram’s huge user base to the Gram token, making it potentially the most adopted crypto in the world.
Until now, the only way to buy Telegram's Gram tokens was through private sale rounds. That's about to change with the first public offering of Gram tokens – only on Liquid.
The sale begins at 5PM JST (8AM UTC) on July 10.
Here's what you need to know:
- Sign up for a Liquid account
- Set up your 2FA
- Verify your account
- Fund your account with USD or USDC

- Eligible customers can deposit USD from a bank account.
- USDC is an ERC20 stablecoin that can be deposited straight into your Liquid account.
- Use your credit or debit to deposit EUR to your Liquid account and use it to buy BTC or ETH.
- You can use BTC or ETH on Liquid to buy USD or USDC.
- There are several other USD markets you may also consider using.
- With our Quick Exchange feature you can swap any asset for another – an easy way to get your USD or USDC.
QASH is our utility token on Liquid. QASH holders will get the best effective prices on Gram tokens. QASH holders will be entitled to QASH rebates off the token purchase price.
There will be a number of holder tier levels. The more QASH you hold, the higher your rebate and the better deal you'll get on Gram tokens.
Don’t miss out on the best prices - get your hands on some QASH.
Buying Gram tokens isn’t the only way to fill your bags.
