From TON Wiki (En)
The Open League

The Open League (TOL) — is a large-scale competitive program of the TON community, aimed at attracting five million new active users to the TON ecosystem within a year.

The idea for The Open League was born in the community, it was voiced by Jack Booth, Chief Marketing Officer of the TON Foundation at The Gateway conference in the fall of 2023:

«It's the Premier League for Web3 projects, where TON is the country and Telegram is the stadium».

The initiative was supported by ~99.5% of voting community members.

SBT for the completed task in the TOL Pilot Season

The main focus is on attracting new users and supporting development teams launching their projects on TON or migrating from other blockchains.

Program Plan and Objectives

  • Pilot Season started in January 2024 and was a run-in before the start of Season I. The goal is to attract 500,000 new users to the TON ecosystem.
  • Season I — April 2024. The goal is to attract 1,000,000 new users to the ecosystem.
  • Season II is scheduled for September 2024. The goal is to attract 3,500,000 new users to TON.

Between Seasons, periods are set aside for analytics and coordinating the continued progress of the program, during which time additional initiatives within «The Open League» may also work.

Rewards structure

The Open League's innovative reward structure at Level 1 includes SoulBound (SBT), which are non-transferable tokens earned by completing various tasks.

At Level 2, the program should introduce XP (experience points) rewards that can be exchanged for Toncoin.

It was originally intended that XP would be raffled off in a weekly lottery, and SBTs would be used as lottery tickets for those drawings. However, details on XP distribution and other details are not yet available. It is expected that more details about future actions for the next one to two months will be known in April 2024. What is known is that the XP program is designed to last a year or more. Changes in terms and mechanics are possible, as they are still being fine-tuned and tested.
