The TON Foundation and Codeforces, one of the leading competitive coding platforms, have become partners. They will hold regular competitions aimed at engaging the programming community in the TON ecosyste, according to Durov's Code.

The partnership between Codeforces and the TON Foundation began in March 2022, when Codeforces hosted the first round of CodeTON with support from the TON Foundation. More than 22,000 users registered and 12,000 submitted at least one entry to the competition.

Developers are one of the top priorities in the network's development, TON is convinced that the partnership with Codeforces will bring a lot of bright and talented professionals to the ecosystem.

Andrew Rogozov, Founding Member of TON Foundation said:

We strongly believe in the idea of competitive programming. It is in the DNA of TON blockchain. Codeforces is an unrivalled platform for developing the programming skills of coders all over the world. We share Codeforces belief that contests bring-forth a treasure trove of talent.

Today's continued sponsorship represents a deepening of the relationship between the two parties and forms the path for a long-term collaboration.

As part of the partnership, the TON Foundation and Codeforces will run a series of competitions to significantly increase the developer community's engagement with TON blockchain and its products.

Mike Mirzayanov, Founder of Codeforces commented: “The TON team is building an amazing infrastructure. Their support proves that our programming competition community is highly appreciated. We are pleased and excited for the opportunities that are opening up!”
