The Teloscope Weekly report: 14–20 Jan 2019
This week Telos has reached another milestone: producing 6 million of blocks on January 17th, signaling the creation of the Telos Original Snapshot. But of course here at The Teloscope, we didn’t stop working!
On Sunday 20th we entered a new rotation as an active BP. Our machine performed very well, achieving an impressive 1.23 ms according to the Aloha Block Producer Benchmarks.
We have been also busy participating in the deployment of a new stagenet using the v1.6 codebase. Further testing will be performed this week.
Our main bot, The Teloscope Bot, received another update: now you can follow Telos premium names under active auction, even without placing a bid right away! This lets you follow that sweet name you have been looking for, to be sure no one steals it.
Obviously we updated The Teloscope Bot user guide accordingly.
We have also updated the BP Teloscope Bot. Here’s the new stuff:
- the ability to monitor voteproducer actions by proxies (we decided to limit it to proxies for now to avoid heavy notification traffic)
- a new link to get Tx details from TELOSTRACKER
On the other hand we also tried to help two more BPs, that have reached out to us asking for help with the development of their own Telegram bots.
The second part of our SensorDApp tutorial was published. This time we began with the trilogy of articles focused on smart contracts. For now, we focused on how to store data in a smart contract using Multi Index Tables, so be sure to check it out!
Save and retrieve data using Multi Index Tables
The second part of this tutorial series starts a trilogy of articles centered on the smart contract development.
Incoming DApps and future airdrops will use any of the sanpshots that will be created every 6M blocks . But the first one, the Telos Original Snapshot (TOS), is special because it will always be maintained as a way to honor and reward early Telos supporters. The Telescope created a special banner for community awareness on snapshots and the TOS, and the potential benefits derived from keeping engaged with Telos.
And as usual we were in direct contact with the Telos community answering some of their typical questions about account activation, key management, etc. It may seem a tedious task but we think it is a very important one in order to engage even more people in Telos!
