The Teloscope Weekly report: 10–30 June
Summer has just started and we are still in full activity mode… attending events, developing Telos-powered applications and planning future actions
At the end of each month we report here about the monthly performance and status of The Teloscope Telos Block Producer. The data shown here is mainly sourced from two apps/tools: our own creation Chainspector, and Aloha BP Benchmarks.
As you can see, on June 5th we were again first in the BP ranking. The rest of the month we’ve been positioned alternately at 3rd and 4th places. It should be noted that between second and fifth place there are less than 100K votes difference. And within that group, sometimes the difference between being ranked one above or one below depends on less than 10K votes.
Applications and Tools
The Teloscope Bot
On June 14th we launched a reward campaign to translate our bot into more languages.
Translate The Teloscope Telegram Bot to Your Language, Win 500 TLOS!
A little spare time and English text strings sourced from us is all that you need
Several people responded immediately and got down to work. As a result we were able to include 4 new languages: German, Hindi, Dutch and Indonesian.
The Teloscope Bot speaks 4 new languages
What language do you want to use? German? Hindi? Dutch? or maybe Indonesian?
In total the bot can be used in 9 major languages, but we want to expand the list even more with the help of the Telos community. 💪
On May 15 several Telos BPs launched the Telos Economic Development Plan (TEDP) proposal for public discussion (RFC). A revised TEDP was proposed as Telos’s first ratify/amend campaign. And a new version of Sqrl Wallet that is able to display multiple clauses within a single ratification/amend proposal was launched.
Now we have included a ratify voting portal in Chainspector app, released in a new update.
Beware that there are currently some compatibly issues with the latest release of Scatter ( v11). This does not only affect Chainspector but many other apps.
As soon as Scatter releases a fix, we will update Chainspector. In the meantime please use Scatter 10 or Sqrl Wallet (1.0.7 ver. and above) to log-in so you can vote for WPs and Ratify Proposals.
In this new voting portal the users can see all the details of the ratify proposal, and explore the new clauses.
We hope that the design will broadly satisfy users, and Chainspector remains the leading application when it comes to community participation in Telos on-chain governance. As always, your feedback will help to us to keep on improving this application.
Traceability in agri-food products
We have concluded the first phase in the development of a Telos-based solution poised to prevent and detect agri-food fraud. Having passed our internal tests, now the solution is about to be tested on a real environment.
The Regulatory Board of the Designation of Origin is the official entity that cooperates with us in selecting the businesses that will run the first tests.
The concept of a Designation of Origin alludes to the usage of specific terms (names of places, cities or regions) in order to refer to a product especially valued by consumers due to its origin and production method. Europe’s competitive advantage lies in providing high-value foods, not in erecting import barriers.
In EU, product names registered as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) must be dispatched with a numbered control label issued by the corresponding Regulatory Board.
The Regulatory Board of the product handled by our Telos-based solution wants to be the first in making an announcement to the media, and only when everything is ready for public launch. That’s why we can’t give more details yet, but we’ll keep you informed. 😃
Blockchain Expo Europe
If on April we were at the Blockchain Expo Global in London, helping at the stand of the Telos project, on this occasion we repeated for the Blockchain Expo Europe held on 19 and 20 June in Amsterdam.
You can read more below in our report back from this event, where The Teloscope demoed two PoCs that we have created for Telos.

NON Central CONF
The 2nd edition of the NON Central CONF took place again in León, Spain, during 22–24th June weekend. It is “NON central”, as León is not at the centre of Spain, and “NON CONF” as it arose as a friends meeting.
Four members of The Teloscope team went there to “evangelize” and show the event participants why Telos network is the best option for their blockchain-based projects.
We offered at the NON Central CONF a couple of interesting talks. One of them focused on traceability systems based on blockchain, which included a live app demo at the ‘OPENnonCONF zone’, a space open to the general public and free access.
The second talk took place at the main stage, where we presented in detail Telos public blockchain network. It should be noted that the Telos Foundation has been involved with this event by providing some small financial support. We took with us and strategically placed at the venue’s networking area a big roll-up banner promoting Telos.
Andrés Berdasco and Luis Meijuero, described the main features and novelties that Telos brings when compared to other blockchain platforms. We also talked about what the life of a Telos BP is like, and concluded with a live demo that proved the suitability and superior performance of Telos for IoT environments.
The audience was thrilled with the demo, and we had very positive feedback from people who approached at networking time (coffee breaks and lunch).
We look forward to the next edition of NONCentralCONF, where we will surely bring along new projects and app demos that we will share with all attendees.
