Interplanetary File System (IPFS) Explained by David Pence
Leslie Haas interviews David Pence, both of EOS USA, to discuss and explain IPFS in simple, easy to understand language. IPFS is beginning to see a ton of new attention. Liquid Storage and dStor have recently launched, both utilizing IPFS. The Interplanetary File System, or IPFS for short, has been touted as the future of decentralized file storage. However, it has some drawbacks. It's said to be a bit slow. Now for companies like GoodBlock of the Telos Blockchain, or LiquidApps of the Dapp Network, they have purposefully chosen IPFS for use in each of their new decentralized storage solutions. The big difference now is that these guys know how to make it lightning fast! EOS USA is a paid block producer on the Telos Blockchain. As well, EOS USA offers DSP services on the DAPP Network. We feel confident in the advantages both of these projects bring to our new decentralized world.

TLOSFAIRVOTE Proxy Announces October Voting Results for Telos BP's
TLOSFAIRVOTE is a proxy on the Telos Blockchain. TLOSFAIRVOTE uses verifiable metrics to determine our voting results. We begin by totaling the scores for each BP. The EOS Nations BP Validator Tool can be found at https://validate.eosnation.io/telos/producers. The scoring mechanism for (1) Reg Producer, (2) Organization and (3) Endpoints is as follows: 5pts - Green Check 4pts - Yellow Triangle 3pts - Orange Triangle 2pts - Red square 0pts - Red circle Next, multiply the final score for each category by the below weighted factors: Reg Prod - x2 Organization - x1 End Points - x3 Tally the scores and this is our first course of determining the top 30 BP's on Telos. Next, we use the Aloha EOS Block Producer CPU Benchmark tool to determine the outcome for any ties. Ties for the 30th spot have been common thus far in our research. The CPU Benchmark provides a fair metric to further compare two or more BP's. https://www.alohaeos.com/tools/benchmarks#networkId=5&timeframeId=2 Visit our website at eosusa.news for more information related to EOSIO, Telos and other cryptocurrency news.

Telos Introduces Two Gigantic Reasons To HODL TLOS!
The Telos Economic Development Plan has recently passed with overwhelming support from the Telos Community. The TEDP represents 5 separate but important moves that attempt to bolster the entire community. Coupled with TREX, the Telos Resource Exchange, these two dynamic programs are likely to increase the utility of Telos several times over. Leslie Haas and Michael Bohnen discuss the recent events on the Telos Blockchain. Telos can process over 4,000 transactions per second (TPS) on its public blockchain, and can process even more transactions when established as a private blockchain. Compare this to Visa which maxes out at 1,700 TPS. With the ability to process thousands of transactions per second, the Telos Blockchain is extremely low latency. For comparison, Bitcoin is at 7 TPS and Etherium is at 12 TPS. The Telos blockchain allows for proprietary software applications to be launched on its public network. Additionally, businesses can also launch permissioned and private networks utilizing Telos. Unlike other blockchains that run on a POW based software, Telos is powered by a DPOS based software that is 66,000 times more efficient than Bitcoin, and 17,000 times more efficient than Ethereum. This energy savings puts Telos on par with a regular centralized server. Telos provides the highest level of security with base layer governance controls built in, utilizing transparent processes that determine how users can interact with the network including: arbitration as a service, and code enforced standards for network custodians. While legacy blockchains charge users for transactions, Telos has completely eliminated transactions fees for users. What’s more, launching with Telos means low cost and abundant resources including RAM, CPU and Bandwidth.

EOSIO is the Linux of Blockchain - It Will Produce Thousands of Copies
HISTORY OF LINUX Linux is the best-known and most-used open source operating system. Linux is software that sits underneath all of the other software on a computer, receiving requests from those programs and relaying these requests to the computer’s hardware. Linux is different from other operating systems in many important ways. First, and perhaps most importantly, Linux is open source software. The code used to create Linux is free and available to the public to view, edit, and contribute to. Linux is also different in that there are many distributions of Linux, which include a multitude of software options. This means that Linux is incredibly customizable. EOSIO is also open source. It shares this most important trait with Linux. Will EOSIO become the new Linux of Blockchain? EOS USA is a block producer for many of the EOSIO chains such as Telos, EOS, BEOS, BOS, Instar, WAX and soon Lynx. Please consider voting for EOS USA on your next EOSIO ballot!

Telos REX Launching Soon
Find out more information with this link: https://medium.com/@teloslogical/telos-rex-faqs-573634b1dd7b Telos is a third-generation blockchain that runs smart contracts at very high speeds (2 blocks per second) with high capacity. Telos charges no transaction fees. Telos is based on the EOSIO software and features advanced voting for dapps, decentralized storage, and a scarce resource model. What is TLOS? TLOS is the system coin for the Telos blockchain and is used to reserve network resources like CPU, NET, and bandwidth. It is also used as a currency. Because TLOS was never sold in an ICO or tokensale, but was instead launched grassroots like bitcoin, many consider it to be on better regulatory footing than cryptocurrencies that ran an ICO.
