Telos is an independent network of computers operated by different block producer teams from around the world.
The block producers organise the user’s commands into time and date order, and process them by writing them into a block.
Each block is inextricably based on the content of the block before it, creating a blockchain record of transactions that cannot be tampered with and whos transactions are publicly accessible to everyone with internet access, forever.
Blockchain is one of the most significant inventions of our time it will likely sit alongside the other great advances like taming fire, inventing the wheel, the printing press, steam power, electricity, engines, computers and the Internet.
Using the Telos network any two people can send and receive currency to each other directly, with no intermediaries except the block producers. Transactions can be made from anywhere in the world, instantly, and for free!
The Telos Blockchain Network is the latest generation of blockchain. Not only is it instant and free to transact, but it is incredibly power efficient compared to the first generation Bitcoin blockchain, overcoming power consumption concerns completly.
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 is where purpose meets people, chekc it out https://www.telos.net/
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 the actual TLOS 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.
