About Telos UK

Telos UK is the Block Producer candidacy name of Advanta Productions Limited on the Telos Blockchain Network. Advanta is an Internet solutions provider founded by Roger Davies in 2004. For over 13 years Roger and his team have been gaining crucial experience vital to being a robust Block Producer. This experience has been gained in the field, working for real-world paying customers, with very high standards. The company operates in the following areas on a day to day basis:

Infrastructure

  • Linux server management
  • Bespoke Web application development
  • Mission critical web application hosting

Advanta, the legal entity behind Telos UK, has been established and built on the premise that even though it is specialising in new and often cutting-edge technologies, traditional business practices such as accessibility, accountability, reliability and dependability, still need to apply. This approach has enabled Advanta to develop a strong and loyal customer base since 2004.

As a Telos token holder voting for Telos UK as a Block Producer you will in effect become an indirect customer of Advanta and benefit from these same traditional business values that the company is established on.

Having developed numerous web applications, Advanta are all too aware of the scaling limitations within traditional development platforms. Having learned about the potential technical capabilities of eosio, it has become obvious to us that the eosio ecosystem will be significant in the mass adoption of blockchain based technologies, since it promises to solve many of the issues inherent in early blockchains.

One of the most exciting aspects of the Telos Blockchain Network is the new economic and governance mechanisms which it introduces. These mechanisms are what will enable the creation of organisations that are owned and managed by communities so that one person’s great idea and their passion for it, can spread to other people who share those passions and, together with Telos and their aligned interests, they can help change the world, one great idea at a time.

Telos UK is privileged to be a Telos Block Producer and to have the opportunity to be part of the Telos Blockchain Network revolution.

The unique combination of technical expertise, project management experience and old school traditional business values makes Telos UK the ideal choice for your Telos Block Producer vote because our mission is to protect and nurture the Telos Blockchain in a professional, transparent and accessible manner.
