Picking up Steam
After a couple of slower news weeks for Telos, we are suddenly swimming in good news. We announced our big partner project to Drakos Keep — called dRealms — this week. That has been a project I’ve been excited to tell people about. We have some more information about it coming soon that will help people understand just how revolutionary dRealms will actually be.
We have a new multi-platform mobile wallet that’s “Telos First” from EOSZA, and in the TCD update, you can read that Telos Miami is planning a Sqrl mobile app with the same great Telos governance features of its desktop wallet. And now you can use your Trezor to store your TLOS!
There’s so much news this week, I won’t dwell on much here. But there’s one story that is really center for me, which is the completion of our first Ratify/Amend governance vote on Telos. This is a historic vote. If you haven’t voted yet, you have a few hours still to get in on the fun. Currently, the proposal is over the needed threshold and leaning towards a Yes vote by 97% with about 17.6 million TLOS voted. The TCD and BPs are already working on a plan to start implementing the TED Plan. In fact, there’s already code running on our testnet. We won’t be able to implement everything immediately. (Read the Telos Core Devs update linked below for details.) Our goal is to do as much as possible as quickly as possible without ever endangering the Telos mainnet. I realize that we are all looking forward to those T-REX staking rewards and the additional TLOS holders we expect it to bring.
Have a great weekend and…Go Telos!
