Durov makes money
Telegram said that it needs to generate revenue from to keep the business going. Telegram may not remain free for users in the days to come. The founder and CEO of the company Pavel Durov said on Wednesday that it needs to generate revenue from to keep the business going.
Telegram will soon get around million active users but in order to continue services, the company needs appropriate funding. But now that the company is growing with billions of active users, it needs adequate funding.
He also assured that the 8-year-old project would sustain for a long time, and keep on adding to the features it has already brought in, viz, encryption, simplicity, speed, functionality as well as the design. He then announced that in order to continue the pace of growth, Telegram would start making revenue fromwhich he assured would be done in a non-intrusive manner with most users not even noticing any changes.
We will do it in accordance with our values and the pledges we have made over the last 7 years. Thanks to our current scale, we will be able to do it in a non-intrusive way. Most users will hardly notice any change.
Indeed, although they had launched a successful startup in Russia their country of originthey had to sell it and fly out from the country eventually. Indeed, back in the early s as Facebook was becoming popular, Pavel Durov heard about this social network idea.
No additional charges will be implied on them. We will add some new features for business teams or power users.

Some of these features will require more resources and will be paid for by these premium users. Durov said that one-on-one messaging would remain ad-free.
As he feels that displaying ads in the middle of the chats is not a very good idea. For example, If we monetize large public one-to-many channels via the Ad Platform, the owners of these channels will receive free traffic in proportion to their size.
Or, if Telegram introduces premium stickers with additional expressive features, the artists who make stickers of this new type will also get a part of the profit. Durov said that in order to generate revenue it does not plan to sell Telegram like the founders of Whatsapp.
