The Teloscope Weekly report: 13 May — 2 June
Although you’ve heard less from us than usual, that doesn’t mean we haven’t been working for the Telos community. Read on and we’ll surprise you with some very interesting news.
Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been working with GoodBlock, Infinity and Blindblocart BPs on deploying some test T-IPFS infrastructure. This will be the foundation of further tests in the road to a complete T-IPFS platform. Kudos to Stephanie from GB who has built most of the core tools and helped us a lot in the deployment process.
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 May 23rd we were first in the BP ranking for a few hours. It was also the first time that a Telos BP that was neither part of the TLG nor is a member of the TF board has achieved this position on the Telos blockchain network.
We are very grateful 🙏 , and sincerely believe that this is one of the best ways to show the most critical people how Telos really solves the “cartelization” issue. There is greater equality regarding the chances of progressing in Telos for any BP who works hard 💪 .
Applications and Tools
As you probably already know, on May 15 several Telos BPs launched the Telos Economic Development Plan (TEDP) proposal for public discussion (RFC). Two weeks have already passed in which various controversial points have been discussed. Now the initial proposal is being modified and completed taking into account the most sound and popular contributions made by the community.
Then the next logic step will be to propose the revised TEDP as Telos’s first ratify/amend campaign. This requires a new version of Sqrl Wallet to be able to load the proposal, and a voting portal.
Since we already offer in Chainspector app the possibility to view and vote for Worker Proposals, it seems reasonable to use some similar design and code a new functionality to view and vote for governance documents such as the TEDP. We are already working on it and hope to have it ready in time for the publication of the final TEDP.
Traceability in agri-food products
The main reason you haven’t heard a lot about us lately is that we’ve been developing a new application prototype for Telos blockchain network.
Almost everyone will agree that one of the best ways to bring value and new users to Telos is to create applications for real business use cases. And we have decided to start with one of the use cases that currently seems to have more acceptance: applying blockchain technologies to the traceability of goods. More specifically, we will focus on agri-food products 🍏.
The main objective of this application will be to prevent and detect agri-food fraud. This fraud can be explained by the complex nature of our globalized supply chains and the economic motivation to provide cheaper products.
Our aim is to create a Telos-based solution that can give confidence to final consumers on the origin of the raw materials, and compliance with quality standards in the processing and preparation of the final goods. 🚛 ✔️
Best of all, we already have an agreement with an official regulatory body that cooperates with us in the definition of app functionalities and field tests. We hope to start very soon the first real tests with some producers of a natural drink widely consumed in our area.
We will keep you informed of further details when possible.
Unfortunately the ABCC 2019 conference that was scheduled to be held on May 25 in Oviedo, Spain, has been postponed. No new date has been set for the time being.
Opportunity comes to pass but not to pause, so we quickly have switched our focus to another blockchain event, where we can promote Telos for an even larger audience.
The 2nd edition of the NON Central CONF will take place again in León, Spain, during 22–24th June weekend.
We have contacted the organizers and will participate with one or two talks (depending on the final agenda). In any case, members of The Teloscope team will represent the Telos network to show the audience why it might be the best option for their blockchain-based projects.
