In a post on X, research firm Delphi Digital referred to this as the “flippening.” According to Delphi Digital, the surge in the daily user activity on Toncoin over Ethereum has been “fueled by Telegram’s 900M user base.”

TON puts holders in profit

At press time, TON exchanged hands at $7.65. After plunging to a two-month low of $6.76 on 11th June, the token’s price rebounded and has since surged by 11%.

TON has seen considerable trading activity in the past 24 hours. Totaling $491 million as of this writing, the altcoin’s trading volume during the period has increased by over 100%, according to CoinMarketCap.

The 9% price spike witnessed in the last 24 hours has led many of TON’s holders to record profits.

AMBCrypto assessed the altcoin’s daily ratio of transaction volume in profit to loss. At press time, the metric’s value was 14.22, the highest level since February. 

This suggested that for every TON transaction that has ended in a loss, 14.22 transactions brought about a profit.
