## KuCoin Ventures Bolsters TON Ecosystem with $20,000 Grant

KuCoin Ventures, the investment arm of the renowned crypto exchange KuCoin, has recently announced a groundbreaking partnership with The Open Network (TON) Foundation. As part of this collaboration, KuCoin Ventures is set to provide a substantial grant of $20,000 to support the development and expansion of the TON ecosystem. The initiative aims to focus on the advancement of five TON-based mini-apps, with a primary emphasis on revolutionizing payment systems and pioneering innovative GameFi platforms within the Web3 space.

This strategic move signifies a significant milestone in fostering relationships between exchanges and public blockchain networks.
