Jan 31 · 3 min read

We are happy to announce that EOS Amsterdam is joining the Telos network! Our nodes are currently up and running, and we are ready to receive votes. With the strength and experience of our team, we aim to be both a reliable and continuously contributing block producer.

What is Telos?

As described by Cypherglass in their latest post, Telos is a blockchain built on the EOSIO software developed by Block.One. Launched by more than 120 people from around the world in December of 2018, with specific goals in mind.

Goals Included:

  • Built-in dispute resolution contract
  • Clear and enforceable on-chain node operator standards
  • Worker Proposal System
  • An inverse-weighted voting protocol to discourage collusion and increase voter participation.
  • IPFS (Telos Interplanetary File System)
  • Resources administration program
  • The Telos Foundation: A neutral network support and promotion organization.

Why we are joining Telos

As a founding block producer on the EOS mainnet, partner in Europechain and active block producer on various other EOSIO-based networks, we have always been involved with EOSIO-based blockchains. The members of our team are well known in EOSIO communities. We believe we can leverage the expertise and experience we have gained over the past years, in order to become a trustworthy and reliable block producer in the Telos network. You can view our current and past performance on other EOSIO blockchains here.

Additionally, we aim to be more than just a reliable block producer. Using our diverse team, we plan on continuously adding value in many different ways. We will describe some of our plans below. You can also view some of our previous contributions here.

How we plan on adding value to the Telos ecosystem

As said earlier, we aim to continuously contribute to the Telos ecosystem during our block producer candidacy.

Two of the things we offer, are the Light API and State Track API for both the Telos mainnet and Telos testnet. These APIs provide various key functionalities, and are used by almost all popular (EOSIO) block explorers and Scatter. We will continue to maintain and host these APIs.

We are also performing research and innovation. Behind the scenes, we are always looking for new and exciting ideas which improve the Telos/EOSIO experience and accelerate mainstream adoption. Some of our ideas can be found here.

To further test our equipment and future updates, we will actively participate in the Telos testnet. One of our nodes is already live and participating in the testnet.

Of course our contributions are not limited to the above three points. We aim to contribute in various other ways as well, ranging from the creation of educational content, to community support, to the promotion of Telos on blockchain events.
