Telos is a Blockchain. Blockchain is one of the most significant inventions of our time it will likely sit alongside the other great advances humans have made like taming fire, inventing the wheel, the printing press, steam power, electricity, engines, computers and the Internet
The Telos Blockchain Network is the latest generation Blockchain. With Telos you can send and receive funds anywhere in the world instantly for free. Telos is about more than this though, with its in-built continuous voting system for electing the producers who run the network, the arbitrators for arbitration cases, and for selecting which worker proposals should receive funding, Telos is a completely independent end-to-end self-governing system capable of running an entire community, civilisation or planet!
Telos has no owners, no managers, and no centralised control which means it cannot be shut down, censored, blocked or acquired. Telos is run by independent Block Producers (BPs) voted for by token holders. There are 21 Active BPs globally, 30 Standby BPs and a potentially unlimited number of BP candidates of which anyone at all can declare to run as a candidate.
Learning more about Telos is a great investment of time, because as the world starts to adopt Blockchain technology those who were motivated to learn about it will be at an advantage, and those who do not will be at a disadvantage. The difference is similar to the void between the banked and unbanked populations of the world right now, where having a Visa debit card gives you access to a whole range of life-giving facilities not available to the unbanked.
In the future as traditional banking becomes only ONE of the financial systems that people can choose from, blockchain based systems will become commonplace. Learning about the Telos Blockchain Network is available below for those who are not satisfied with the current systems or who do not have access to them, and want to safely explore how blockchains work.
