Original article written by the dmail team.
The dmail team is happy to announce that our block producer is live on the Telos mainnet.
What is a Block Producer you ask?
We like to think about it as a bank that processes transactions, but the bank is decentralized and run by people you like!
Block Producers are also kind of like the Citadel of Ricks for blockchains, just more decentralized (probably).
dmail Telos Block Producer Values
We promise to:
✅ Advocate for dapp developers.
✅ Advocate for dapp users.
✅ Advocate for use of open web standards for blockchains and dapps.
✅ Bring great dapps and users to the Telos mainnet.
In summary, we are like Tron, we fight for the user!
What is Telos?
Telos may be the one to carry us through the long night.
That was a Jon Snow reference.

Telos has always been interesting to us as a chain where you could have more freedom to innovate. Telos has cheaper resources, for example, by a factor of around 20x from EOS mainnet, at the time of this writing.
From dmail’s viewpoint Telos came about from the great technologists who helped deploy EOS mainnet but wanted to make blockchains more accessible and user friendly.
Forks, side chains and spoons are all good for the open source ecosystem we are building, so all we see are wins on the horizon.
Why does dmail need a bp?
The dmail dapp heavily uses blockchain infrastructure to achieve it’s goal of connecting user’s through an email-like service.
Because we are constantly working with a blockchain based architecture, it only makes sense for us to spool up our own architectures to test, improve, and understand first hand how our application works, also how the upgrades to the network code affect the entire community.
BPs make a lot of decisions in a blockchain ecosystem like Telos, so we want to be right there to help, and to represent the values in our mission.
