Part of the TON Foundation’s The Open League initiative, the rewards amount to over $115 million at current Toncoin (TON) prices.

The Open League’s first round will start on April 1, 2024 and follows the successful implementation of a pilot program, the foundation said in an announcement on March 20.

During the pilot, TON Foundation distributed a total of 650,000 Toncoin worth about $2.6 million to the community in what it termed as liquidity boosts. Overall, the program will see projects building on the TON blockchain and those that migrate to the network share a total of 30 million tokens ($115 million).

“The Open League’s pilot season led to 70% growth in TVL (Total Value Locked) and 370% in daily active wallets. Very crazy results for just 2 weeks. TON Community it’s time to double-down,” the TON Foundation wrote.

According to the foundation, TON projects will win prizes through monthly competitions, while TON-chain users will receive rewards based on their activity.

The rewards are thus split into four systems: the League, token mining, quests & airdrops and liquidity pool boosts. For instance, the League category will share $5 million in Toncoin, quests & airdrops $22 million and liquidity pool boosts $40 million Toncoin.

The project will reserve $38 million worth TON for an incentivization program targeted at an upcoming project.
