Telegram No-SIM Account:
By using anon-blockchain numbers, Telegram will support no-sim accounts.
By allowing support for anonymous, $16 blockchain-based phone lines, Telegram has improved its security measures.
A recent update to the messaging program Telegram now lets users create accounts using unknown numbers based on the blockchain rather than cell phone numbers.
However, users will now be able to hide numbers from everyone, gratifying consumers who value privacy-focused features. Telegram already hides people’s private phone numbers from non-added users on the app.
The texting service has gained popularity among cryptocurrency fans. The change is part of an update 9.2 that went live on December 6 and automatically allowed users to eliminate timers on messages in brand-new chats.

Users must purchase “blockchain-powered anonymous numbers” from Fragment, the decentralized auction website that Pavel Durov, the creator of Telegram, launched to take advantage of the functionality.
Fragment sells user identities and anonymous phone numbers that are exclusive to Telegram. The Open Network, a cryptocurrency linked with Telegram, is used for purchases on the site (TON).
Fragment regrettably does not provide its services to residents of the United States.
After acquiring a number, people can then use these private numbers to join Telegram and receive SMS with verification codes.
On Fragment, users can buy a random number for 9 TONs ($16) or participate in auctions to buy and sell them. As of this writing, “+888 8 888” has the highest offer of 33,075 TON ($60,527), suggesting that some specific numbers are drawing much interest.
In reaction to yet another instance of misbehaviour by a centralized crypto organization, Durov disclosed via his Telegram channel on November 30 that the business was developing a set of decentralized tools in the wake of the FTX fiasco last month.
Durov added to Fragment by saying that, among other things, Telegram plans to release noncustodial wallets and decentralized exchanges.
“The answer is simple: blockchain-based projects need to return to their decentralized origins. He added that users of cryptocurrencies should move to self-hosted wallets and transactions that any third party does not trust.
