Smell the Flowers
This week has been a bit slow on Telos news compared to most. That’s actually fine with me. After a slog of a winter at my house where the snow still hadn’t melted in many parts of my yard, I’m really happy to have spring arrive. (Can crypto spring be far behind?)
At GoodBlock we are preparing for a number of conferences and presentations where we will be talking about Telos and what we are building on it (like Drakos Keep) in the hopes of igniting a lot of interest. I know a lot of us are on the edges of our seats to hear what new exchanges have been brought in by the Telos Foundation board to help push TLOS onto CoinMarketCap. That’s probably some big news for next week. Having a little downtime from big news just lets me spend more time getting ready for these new things. So enjoy the short read, smell the flowers this weekend, and don’t be surprised if there’s tons to discuss next week.

Worker Proposals of Note
WP #6 “WordProof — Open Source WordPress Telos Plugin”
Voting closes: March 30 0:46 UTC
300,000.0000 TLOS times 4 cycles to ‘wordprooftls’ to fund an open source Telos WordPress plugin.
There was an error in submitting this proposal. The proposer meant to submit 4 cycles at 75,000.0000 TLOS each for a total of 300,000. Since the proposal cannot be modified, the proposer has made an update on-chain, asking for the full 300,000 TLOS for the first cycle which will get the WordPress plug-in created quickly for an upcoming conference and for any additional cycles that pass, he will return 225,000 TLOS and use the remaining 75,000 TLOS to further develop WordProof.
Yes: 2,827,304 | No: 794,730 | Abstain: 3,251,944
About to end:
