An ode to a reliable utility blockchain.
There was zero social distancing in the hall,
This gathering would be attended by all;
A cryptocurrency bonanza,
A blockchain – extravaganza.
Bitcoin veterans suave as could be,
Buterin’s boys singing Ethereum Me.
Binance reps were strutting the floor,
Litecoin ladies gave greeting at the door.
Ripple was there, but feeling unwelcome up-back;
with the Monero men, all shrouded in black.
Tezos was seated, Zcash was too,
NEO and NEM had just stepped out to the loo.
As Satoshi softly keyed the grand piano,
Closely nearby stood the likes of EOS, Xaya and Cardano.
The Tron team was all in here of course;
Along with the Hive guys, showing little remorse.
All-in-all the turnout was Stellar,
regardless of this being one huge crypto Tether.
Because soon a bombshell, was about to drop,
Which nothing short of an Exodus could readily stop.
A familiar and experienced architect walked out on the stage,
Matured and wise; made Ivan on Tech look a simple young page.
And though this audience could sense his forlorn,
He swore he would take this crowd by the Horn.
‘Ladies and gentlemen, this point I unveil,
Proof of stake and decentralised governance will ultimately prevail,‘
And as the sounds in the hall rose and swirled,
‘Telos will save the world’.
What started as mirth, soon became laughter,
Even B1 and Larimer were rolling on the floor.
How could this unknown EOSIO blockchain,
Possibly lay claim to be anything more?
Undeterred by the shreeks, the jeers and the heckling,
the MC threw just one question back –
‘Name the single biggest problem all the world faces?
And give this here Telos blockchain a crack.‘
Crypto-enthusiasts are curious by nature,
And will never let a problem go unsolved.
So the room went dead quiet in this moment.
And would remain this way until problem resolved.
‘Covid19’ was the response from the gallery,
Some Theta fan from within the BAC rank,
The reply however was swift and decisive,
‘Telos keeps all the virus data for Genobank.’
Dogecoin weren’t taking this matter too lightly,
the world’s biggest problem was ‘Fake News‘, of course.
‘And this is why Telos has ‘Unbiased’,
to gather the news and the facts from the source.‘
‘The problem is Social media censorship,’
Berwick and the libertarians proclaimed.
‘And this is why Telos has Murmur,
Peeranha and Unbiased again.‘
‘Come on, get real’, said the Steem crew,
‘Unrewarded content creation’ is the problem that breeds.
‘You are right’ replied this grinning conductor,
‘And Telos has Newlife, Zeptagram and Seeds.’
Tensions were beginning to rise now,
And the frustrations you could cut with a knife.
For everyone knew where this was going,
and the urgency had just become rife.
According to Xaya – ‘Game Worlds and human mining was the solution,
And, Telos doesn’t have games!’
‘Well actually, we’ve partnered with Unity through Qudo,
We’ve also got Angry Warlords, Blox and V8 Planes.’
‘Our journey with games doesn’t stop there though,
we have dRealms coming soon, prey tell.
Not to mention our last massive announcement,
the Steam Gaming Platform, via Farm Game, has started using Telos as well.’
You could have heard a pin-drop,
with the room in a complete state of shock.
This Maestro had picked up a hammer,
to decisively crushed the last block.
‘Decentralised and trustless document storage,
we are calling this our dStor,
Quick, uncensored and interplantary,
it is IPFS, plus video, plus more.‘
‘Do we need to remunerate musicians and lyrical artists?
Well Telos has Zeptagram for this.
Crowdsourcing and rights trading; it is,
New art, new sound, new world bliss.‘
‘You are forgeting the poor and disadvantaged,‘
Called out one mislead member of Dash.
‘No way – we are most certainly banking the unbanked,
And for this we have Sesacash.‘
‘Or are you talking food assistance?
Another “world saving” place to start,
Telos is scaling All_EBT’s public welfare programs,
A virtual card with a heart.’
‘Worried about the real world communities?
We’ve got them here at Telos too.
Africans, South Americans and Christians,
Our blockchain based societies – just to name a few.‘
‘We’ve got a working foundation, worker remuneration,
and double digit REX staking rewards – does it get any better?
Yet we never had the need for ICO money,
So we are not a security – and we even have a legal letter!
‘Please excuse the brief off-topic, sorry to digress,
Saving the world needs free and fair elections, to ensure true democracy.
For this we have Telos Decide – blockchain ballots and voting,
End intimidation, illegal voting and political hypocrisy.’
‘Why don’t we cut to the chase and be honest,
Blockchain is let down by one major theme.
Twelve transactions per second….
Would always stop us from going mainstream.’
‘Telos has solved this problem,
Thousands of transactions per second have been seen.
All for free on our decentrized blockchain,
With our efficiency keeping the environment green.’
‘Forget about a lightning network,
Forget about Ethereum fast,
Now through our Transledger partner,
You can transfer Bitcoin and Ether on Telos…
instantly… en masse… for free… at last!’
