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.

Telos UK achieves another world first today in contributing to the launch of the new WordProof Blockchain plugin for WordPress.
will be the very first site to use the Telos Blockchain to time and date stamp published content on a WordPress website. So cool!
Time and date stamping your content is important because it is no longer sufficient to be able to point to the WordPress publish date on a page as a means to determine when something was published, in the case of a plagiarism claim for example.
Unless you have cryptographic proof that is the equivalent of being digitally written in stone, any other kind of proof is meaningless because it can be easily faked in our technologically advanced age.
At 13:37 CEST (that’s 12:37 in the UK) Telos UK, EOS Writer and Everything EOS were the first websites in the world to time and date stamp content on the blockchain, as they performed a coordinated publishing of time and date stamped website content. Telos UK using the Telos blockchain, and the other two using the EOS blockchain.
This coordinated campaign also demonstrates the power of building on eosio because it can be deployed on either EOS or Telos blockchains, another huge benefit for developers.
Telos UK are delighted to be part of the WordProof Beta Group bringing the WordPress community to eosio blockchains EOS&Telos.
Sebastiaan van der Lans and the WordProof team are making great progress and have been funded, in part, by the Telos Worker Proposal system as discussed by our very own Roger Davies and Douglas Horn from GoodBlock in Carshare 48 filmed last week in London. Follow the link to the post to learn more and see the time and date stamp itself at the foot of the page.
Thank you Sebastiaan for your special Telos Community video. It has been great working with such a professional on this project.

In Carshare 48 Roger manages to capture a rare opportunity to have Douglas Horn riding shotgun as guest presenter but unlike his previous appearance in Carshare, this time he is in the flesh!
As one of the UK’s most prominent BPs Telos UK is contributing at the Telos Foundation booth at the 2019 Blockchain Expo, and as the team assemble for another day of back to back conversations with potential Enterprise users, there is a window of opportunity to have Douglas in the car to give us an update on the current Telos news
Today Roger and Douglas talk about the new Telos enabled mobile wallets from EOS Lynx for Telos and My EOS Wallet who are bringing Telos to mobile with these great wallets and bringing the power of blockchain to your wallet.
Roger is particularly excited about the new opportunities this will bring to the ACORNs community project https://www.acorns.fun because more and more people will be able to get free access to create and use blockchain based services.
Next up is a thorough introduction to the Telos Worker Proposal System from Douglas as he explains how anyone can receive TLOS funding for their projects if token holders vote for them. Some notable projects are featured.
https://wordproof.io/ – WordProof starts as an open source WordPress plugin, enabling you to timestamp your content in the Blockchain, for free. Brought to you by the creators of the WP GDPR Compliance plugin (100,000+ active users).
The first version of WordProof will be released in Q2 2019.
“In five years from now, if you don’t timestamp your articles on the blockchain, you’re going to be considered a fraud.”
Chronicle and History Indexer
eosio Chronicle and History Indexer is an end-to-end solution for hosting the history archive and serving the queries.
The purpose of the work proposal is to deliver a solution that scales from a low-cost server to a large cluster serving thousands of requests per second. This will be achieved by means of efficient indexing, caching, and data replication.
CJ and Katie Marketing for Telos? Yes please!
Telos Foundation – Marketing and Outreach Strategy by CJ Anders and Katie Roman. Their proposal is a response to many conversations and observations made as participants in the Telos Community and they submit this worker proposal to give the community the opportunity to hire them to bolster the marketing and public relations efforts of the Telos Foundation in collaboration with the board members.

In this episode we learn that Jim gets holidays and new Sys Admin team member David is worried about trying to fill his shoes as the guest presenter. No need to worry though David did a great job as the following topics are explored
- The Telos FLAME token – demonstrating the ability to transfer a cryptocurrency instantly and for free. The Telos FLAME token was created by Telos 21 Zephyr, who ‘lit’ it by deploying the tlosflamelit smart contract. Since being the first recipient of the FLAME they passed it to Douglas Horn, the Telos white paper author, who then passed it on, to help it on its way.Read more on Fungibility and divisibility at https://www.worldcryptoindex.com/fungibility-explained/
Where will it go next? Follow the FLAME on its journey https://telos.eosx.io/account/tlosflamelit
- ACORNs – The new free cryptocurrency is now available, for everyone! To get your ACORNs visit the www.acorns.fun website for step by step instructions of how to get your free Telos account and activate the ACORNs smart contract. With an ACORN community account you can access the blockchain for free and learn how to manage private keys and blockchain based services in the future. Using the ACORNs website users can get certification to 1GSS (Gold Star Squirrel!). Only if you follow all the instructions exactly will Big Squirrel confirm your certification on-chain. Roger hints at a potential future where allegiance to a brand or community through a common account naming convention could give access to services or even rewards from advertisers who want to show their appreciation for your loyalty. Maybe that will even be the future of Universal Basic Income systems. Meantime the roster of squirrel users who have achieved on-chain certification can be found at https://www.acornsexplorer.com/get-1gss . Will you be next?
- When CoinMarketCap ? Roger line’s it all up for us and explains the process for getting on CMC. Starting with the latest development that Telos trading with USDt is now open on CoinTiger one of the 3 new exchanges which are being connected to the Telos Blockchain at the moment. Once 2 of the 3 exchanges are live then Telos will be one step closer to being listed on CMC. The CMC website is considered the industry standard starting point for all cryptocurrencies. It is assumed a CMC listing is an essential component of a successful new blockchain like Telos. It should be noted that other coin information resource sites are springing up all the time in order to cash in on this fledgeling new industry.
- Blockchain Community Events – Next up is the Blockchain Expo event in London and of course Roger, Jim and David are going to be in attendance on the 25th and 26th April and looking forward to connecting with the community in person.
Telos is really starting to ramp up now and it will be fascinating to watch its organic growth in the weeks and months ahead.
