€ 400K for questionnaire creators

"With 2 billion students currently not in their schools, the world is in dire need of online educational tools. We want to help solve this problem by creating a database of educational tests for all subjects and levels. To do so, today we announce an open collaboration initiative in which we will distribute EUR 400.000 to creators of educational questionnaires".

20.000 stickers

"While Telegram has been the go-to place for stickers since they first appeared, until today there was no easy way to see the best stickers in one place. To solve this we created the new stickers directory, where you can browse and search among the more than 20.000 free high quality Telegram stickers that have been created in the last 5 years".

    The problem is always the same. No matter how good an app is, people don't want to change because of the network effect. In the end they are worth as an alternative when the first fails.

      Greetings Manson! Thank you for your successful comment, however personally I have seen that my close circle of family, work and professional acquaintances now use Telegram and WhatsApp. And every time I see many more join, therefore, it is not only in case it fails, it is already becoming fashionable, therefore its continuous increase.

    Go if it is useful, everything that gives visibility to free software (at the app level if it is, although later the question of servers is questioned) because the more visibility you have, the more people you can reach. So articles like this become essential, without any doubt.

      Greetings Arazal! Thanks for your comment. It would not surprise me at all, that over time, and as Telegram accumulates users, it becomes completely a free and open app, down to the server level, since it is a technological trend that yields much commercial fruit at the business level.
