Telegram investors have turned down the offer of a refund on their investment in the TON ICO despite an injunction by the SEC delaying the launch of the network.
Telegram, which is an important part of the crypto ecosystem due to its encrypted communication abilities, has been embroiled in a dispute with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, which argues that its planned blockchain, Telegram Open Network (TON), is a security, meaning the ICO was actually illegal. The commission issued an injunction last week preventing the company from launching TON as planned this month.
