According to the online publication “Durov’s Code”, a trading platform for usernames in Telegram, which was called Fragment, has been launched.
On this platform, users can buy and sell names in the messenger, including short nicknames. The username will be given to the one whose maximum bid is not outbid within a week.
The purchase of names is carried out on the principle of an auction – users make bids, the username is received by the user with the maximum bid at the end of the auction, its duration is one week from the moment of the first bid. The minimum bid depends on the length of the username – the shorter it is, the higher the initial bid. The minimum amount for a 4-letter name is 10,000 Toncoin (about $19,000). The initial rate will decrease daily if the first potential buyer is not found.
Names such as @casino, @bank, @auto, @fifa, @dior are already up for sale. Most of all so far they offer for @casino – more than 50 thousand TON (more than 30 million rubles).
