Channel created
You can set up a public username on Telegram. It then becomes possible for other users to find you by that username — you will appear in contacts search under ‘global results’. This allows to message you without needing to know your number. Public channels and groups can also have usernames.

More in our FAQ:
https://telegram.org/faq#usernames-and-telegram-me

If you mention usernames in Telegram messages, they become a link that opens the conversation, group, or channel. Like this: @username (yes, this example is a little recursive 😁).

You can also use usernames outside of Telegram with the help of Telegram.me. Like this:
https://telegram.me/username

For some reason, you can also use this:
https://telegram.dog/username

Don't ask. 🐺
Starting this week, you can also use stylish t.me links for your profiles, public groups, and channels. Just three characters – the rest is your space.

t.me/username

Can it get cooler than this?

UPD: Yes, it can! 👇

THE WAIT IS OVER! 🥳🥳🥳

You can now buy short recognizable @usernames for personal accounts, public groups and channels.

The auction for the best usernames is live on Fragment:
https://fragment.com

The ownership of these collectible usernames is secured in the immutable ledger of TON, a fast and scalable blockchain network. Owners can add multiple username aliases to their personal account, group or channel.

Each collectible name can be accessed with its @username on Telegram, or outside Telegram using links such as username.t.me and t.me/username.

Telegram users can now list their usernames on Fragment for free without placing a starting bid:

• Once listed, the username will remain available for auction for an unlimited time – until the first bid is placed.
• A 7-day auction starts as soon as anyone places the first bid.
• After the auction ends, the platform fee and a one-time conversion fee will be deducted from the proceeds.

If you already own a collectible username, you can sell it or start a new auction at any time – without paying the conversion fee.
You can now make anonymous offers to owners of Telegram usernames – letting them know how much you’d be willing to bid if they put their username up for auction.

To encourage serious offers, sending an offer requires a small fee. If the owner chooses to auction their username, you’ll get a notification on Telegram.
