Recently founding EOS Mainnet block producer Cypherglass officially joined Telos. We spoke with their new CEO Adrianna Mendez to find out more.
So Adrianna, firstly congrats on your new role as CEO of Cypherglass! It seems you’re not wasting any time making moves joining the Telos blockchain shortly after the CEO change. In the past we’ve seen Cypherglass keep their distance from EOSIO sister chains, why did you choose to start producing blocks for Telos?
Thank you, this new role has been challenging and exciting already. I’m looking forward to continuing to shake things up in 2020.
When we launched Cypherglass in 2018 we understood this project was a marathon vs. a sprint. Collectively we chose to focus on EOS Mainnet to learn and grow as a block producer. It takes time to build a good reputation and earn respect as an ethical project, as well as how to identify one.
After watching the Telos Community over the last year and getting to know my fellow EOSio chain block Producers, I feel confident to stand up a node and represent Telos as a block producer.
At what capacity will Cypherglass be working with Telos over the next year, will you only be producing blocks or is the idea to also support the network in other ways?
We are currently focused on the infrastructure of our node and campaigning to Telos token holders and proxies. I’m now gathering ideas from the Telos Foundation PR & Marketing Team and community for topics and ideas as I explore a Telos Series on the Cypherglass YouTube channel.
Telos has an exciting use-case for the study and implementation of smart contracts and digital governance in the real world. These technologies could very well change what it means to be an attorney or how we litigate these systems and contracts. I would like to see the Telos Network studied and discussed by law students around the United States. It seems to be a growing topic as Congress gets ready to vote on the Cryptocurrency Act of 2020.
Do you see a future were EOSIO sister chains peacefully coexist with the EOS Mainnet? At the moment there seems to be a bit of animosity between the communities?
I think it is too soon to fully understand the dynamics between EOS Mainnet and any sister/side chains yet. Emerging tech thrives under competition, and that is okay. There is more than enough business to go around. Project owners, developers, and community members should focus on carving out a niche and becoming the best at it, not bullying each other. I do support a blockchain agnostic perspective and don’t see the point of tribalism when we can learn so much from each other with a little bit of tolerance.
Where do you ideally see Cypherglass and Telos relationship 12 months from now?
I hope the relationship between Cypherglass and Telos is as strong as our current relationship with EOS Mainnet is, and both are well known and respected technology brands known around the world.
EOS Mainnet holds so much value, figuratively and literally, it’s not the easiest or most affordable place to launch independent ideas or projects. I’m excited to begin working with Telos knowing WPS funding is available.
Any other plans or announcements from Cypherglass you’d like to share with us?
No other announcements at this time, however, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the people working in the eosio community, especially the ones who’ve reached out these past few weeks during my transition into CEO. I’m very proud and grateful to be apart of something global and innovative. Our door is always open if you need us!
Thanks for your time Adrianna, you have our vote!
