Telos UK are a Founding Block Producer on the Telos Blockchain Network

Block Producers process the transactions on a blockchain. A blockchain is a hard-to-hack, distributed ledger, for recording transactions and events in an encrypted and immutable form. Blockchains enable trust-less transactions to occur, without middlemen or their commissions, and without unnecessarily sacrificing your privacy. All this is deployed on a distrubuted, scalable & high speed computer network comprising of 21 Active Block Producers, 30 Standby Block Producers and Block Producer Candidates.

Blockchains can handle thousands of transactions per second and are the underlying technology empowering the people who are committed to driving the next chapter in our evolution. Telos UK are your Block Producer team, join and support us as we journey into this exciting new world of fair and open source solutions for currencies, commerce and perhaps one day even governance.

President Jim! Carshare #43 : The Telos Foundation Board elect & Telos UK BP Update

Welcome to Carshare #43 and Happy New Year for 2019 and may it be your best year yet!  We want to make a special thank you to all our supporters on both the EOS and Telos mainnets who have supported us with votes in 2018 and we thank you in advance for your continued support into 2019.

So much has happened since Carshare #42 with both Roger and Jim having valiantly fought off double man flu, Telos has launched and activated, Roger has moved house again, it was Christmas and New Year,  and Jim has not only been elected to the Telos Foundation Executive Board but also to the post of President! A double-busy few weeks then!

In this short episode en route to the workspace in Nottingham town our dynamic duo get up to speed on:

The set up of the Telos Foundation

The Telos Foundation is an apolitical body with a mission of promoting the Telos Blockchain Network. It is voted as a decentralised autonomous organization (DAO) voted by holders of Telos Foundation Voting Tokens as described in its Telos Foundation (PDF) Governance Document.

Jim’s Election to Office

For his sins Jim volunteered to be President of the Telos Foundation and he was unappossed because of course who better than our Jim to do that job?!  Expect to see a lot more of Jim out and about as the Telos Foundation gets established and he heads out in to the world, performing his duties as one of the first official envoys for Telos, from the new Foundation. Such an historic moment!

The confirmed Telos Executive Board

As per the official press release the 12 elected board members are as follows

Jan Smith (DutechEOS) – Interim RAM Director
JT Buice (Kainos Technologies) – Board Member
Mark Cohen (Telos Vancouver) – Board Member

Telos UK Block Producer Update

Telos UK secured a place in Telos launch history by becoming the very first Block Producer to ever get paid block rewards on the Telos blockchain. The magic of blockchains means you can actually link to that individual transaction itself on the public blockchain, as shown in the image below

The Block Producer to write the first block after activation was CalEOS who took things over from the eosio system account and wrote block 1,000,040

BP Ranking on Telos

Since launch Telos UK have been an active Block Producer continously (except when switched out to standby periodically) and ranked in the top 10.

Telos UK are delighted to be ranked No.4 by voters in the Telos Blockchain Producers table at the time of recording this episode of Carshare

Ranking above our BP colleague Josep of EOS.Barcelona was a big surprise to us!

BP Ranking on EOS

The much more plutocratic EOS Producers table has us ranked only 89 on EOS, one day if voting on EOS becomes fairer then perhaps our skills on Telos can help to demonstrate our abilities enough to get us ranked in the Active BPs on EOS too?

Telos Fastrack FAQs: Carshare #42 Your Telos Questions Answered. ‘I Want My Telos’

Answers to your Telos Frequently Asked Questions

OK, so Telos is good to go but that’s only half the story it seems. In this episode, your friendly neighbourhood BPs Jim and Roger of EOS and Telos UK answer the top Telos questions being asked across the cryptosphere about Telos.

If you are reading this shortly after launch or activation then please first of all read this article What Happens when Telos Votes to Launch from the team at Goodblock for the Telos Foundation.

Thanks to all the Telos Block Producer candidates and community members who are tirelessly answering these questions over and over again on the various social media channels

  1. How do I get my Telos?
    Easy just download and install the Sqrl wallet or Scatter version 10 and connect to the “Telos Mainnet” using any EOS Genesis account and your Telos will be there waiting for you.
  2. How many Telos will I get?
    You will get 1:1 TLOS tokens for every EOS token you held in an account in the EOS Genesisi snapshot up to the maximum cap of 40,000 per account to limit whale influence
  3. When Airdrop?
    It’s done! Technically Telos is not an Airdrop, you will NOT see your TLOS tokens in your EOS account alongside your airdropped tokens because Telos is a totally seperate blockchain. Your Telos account should also receive its own Airdrops in the future from new tokens created on Telos. It is more cost effective for developers to deploy on Telos so a lot of dApps are looking at Telos instead of EOS.
  4. What do I have to do to get my Telos?
    The criteria for receiving TLOS is simply that you have an EOS Genesis account you can access. You do not need to actively do anything to claim them, unlike an airgrab or anything like that.
  5. How can I see my tokens?
    Simply enter your account name into one of the block explorers, such as is shown here on the Telos Foundation block explorer query of the Block1 account (capped at 40,000) https://monitor.telosfoundation.io/account/b1b1b1b1b1b1
  6. What’s the genesis snapshot?
    The Telos Genesis snapshot is a modified version of the EOS Genesis snapshot of June 2nd 2018. The Telos Genesis Snapshot has capped whale accounts at 40,000 to limit whale dominance and the potential for manipulation of the BP voting.
  7. What’s the ‘Original’ Snapshot?
    At block 6 Million of the Telos Blockchain, a new snapshot will be taken for use by future airdrops. The Block 6 Million snapshot will look to reward early movers who have taken measures to strengthen their position prior to block 6 Million.
  8. Can I buy more Telos?
    Yes you can buy as many as you like!
  9. When and where can I buy more Telos?
    As of 20th December 2018 you can trade TLOS/EOS on https://www.chainrift.com/trading?coinpair=TLOS/EOS#
  10. My new keys don’t work in the Sqrl wallet. How do I make it work?
    Have you changed your owner and or active keys on EOS since launch? If so this might be why, try using your original Active Key. Failing that please connect with us on the dedicated Telegram support channel https://t.me/sqrlwallet
  11. Is there a list of BPs?
    Yes, you can see them on https://monitor.telosfoundation.io/ or listed in the Sqrl wallet
  12. Are there any trusted proxies set up?
    Yes, these can be viewed in the Sqrl wallet or listed by most Block Explorers such as eosX
  13. Can I set up a proxy?
    Yes, see the excellent tutorial video from Telos Miami on how to do this (it’s a silent video fyi!)
  14. Can I vote for Block Producers?
    Yes! Please vote for telosuknodes and 29 other block producers, or proxy your vote to one of the proxies we are on such as goodproxytls (which Roger is a Govenor for).
  15. Why don’t my keys work in Sqrl?
    If you have changed or lost your keys since EOS launched then you will need to use the old key to access your Telos account and then you can change it as soon as you have got access. If your keys have been compromised please contact the Telos Foundation in Telegram at this link.

We will continue to monitor the channels for more questions. Please email us if you have a particular question you want to get answered outside of Telegram bp@telosuk.io

Telos Blockchain Network Launches: It’s a ‘Yes’ to Launch From Telos UK

Telos Blockchain Network Launches: It’s a ‘Yes’ to Launch From Telos UK

Yes, its official the Telos Blockchain Network is finally good to ‘GO’. Roger was privileged to be the first working group chair to vote for ‘GO’ on the TLG call on behalf of the Exchange Wallet Outreach Working Group to confirm that the team were “Go For Launch”.

Due to the sensible checklist launch procedure (another one of Roger’s brilliant ideas!) adopted by the Telos Launch Group (the TLG) the vote on Saturday 8th Dec 2018 was a foregone conclusion and despite Douglas Horn’s(Goodblock) stated aim of having a ‘boring launch’ there was an air of excitement on the call with champagne and comedy Gifs abound in offices all over the world with the dawning realisation that the chain was good to go.

Roger and Jim extend their thanks to everyone that has been part of the launch team for all the tireless work on this great project and for the honour of being part of it. However, this is only the start we will keep you posted on all the Telos news as this project grows.

Here’s the link to the official Telos press release for full details of the launch process.
