The Teloscope
Jan 14 · 3 min read

Telos may boast a good start for a blockchain network. But for many a blockchain is just a blockchain, which could just be replaced by many competitors. But a strong community is much more difficult to leave, specially if there are plenty of useful (d)applications available. This is why The Teloscope team has been focused this week on fostering DApp development among the community.

Tools

We launched a new update of The Teloscope Bot with the addition of some new and requested features: now you can subscribe up to five Telos accounts. Other improvements were made towards achieving gains in speed and stability of existing features.

We also updated The Teloscope Bot user guide with the latest screen captures, the description of recently added functionalities, and reworked some paragraphs to improve the readability.

We still have some really cool features in the works but if you have any suggestion please let us know. The feedback we’ve received so far has helped us a lot.

Community

Finally we managed to launch the SensorDApp tutorial, dedicated to DApp develoment for Telos Blockchain Network, being it the first of its kind ever published by a Telos BP.

And as a way to facilitate discussion and direct communication with the group of creators and developers we opened the Telos DApp Development channel on Telegram.

We also updated our compilation of Telos and blockchain abbreviations and acronyms with many new terms. Now there are 40 of them, so you might want to bookmark the list for future reference!.

Misc

We’ve been following the privEOS project for a while and with the launch of the TestNet this week we couldn’t miss the party. We’ve set up a node, at the time of this writing one of the 10 functional ones, and we expect to be able to further test the platform in the coming weeks.

We’ve also noticed there were some Telos BPs sending small transfers with vote requests in the MEMO field (aka spam).

What goes into the blockchain, stays in the blockchain…

We asked the rest of the BPs for their opinion about this practice. After some discussion the general sentiment seems to be that there’s nothing inherently wrong with it, although it may cause more harm than good with some users.

This report has been produced by members of The Teloscope team.

The Teloscope is an independent nonprofit Telos block producer — our work is free from the influence of crypto whales or other BPs. The revenue we get from any service we provide to the Telos network is fully invested in our Telos BP infrastructure, as well as in tools and services for the blockchain community.

You can support us by including theteloscope among the list of BPs that deserve your vote.
