Telegram entered the list of the 10 most downloaded and popular apps in the world, said the Creator of the messenger Pavel Durov.

“Telegram is one of the top 10 most downloaded and most popular apps worldwide. Thank you for loving us and telling your friends about Telegram. With each new telegram user, power returns from corporations to people,” Durov said in his telegram channel.

Earlier, telegram Vice President Ilya Perekopsky said that mobile app developers around the world have to pay a 30% tax to Apple and Google for placing their programs in their stores.

Durov noted that it is not easy to prevent two “supranational corporations” from collecting tax from all of humanity, and it is necessary to talk about the perniciousness of this state of Affairs for billions of users around the world.
