Telos has been on a decline since the beginning of December 2021, after a few accounts were compromised by a private key-sniffing malware (Telos Sign). However, the launch of Telos EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine), an $8m strategic deal, listing news, and DeFi partnerships boosted the crypto in November. At the time of writing on 6 January, the telos token price was at $0.54, 57.81% below its all-time high on 23 November 2021 was $1.28.

This third-generation blockchain platform that aims for building fast, scalable distributed applications with feeless transactions, launched its mainnet in December 2018. Telos has a  current CoinMarketCap ranking of #347.

A TLOS price prediction could depend on the team that handles the malware attacks and promotes Telos EVM as a safe crypto gateway. Telos mainnet has been holding on strong for the last three, what is the telos price prediction for 2022 and beyond?

What is Telos coin? 

Telos is a blockchain platform, its tokens are used for DeFi, gaming, and social media for smart contracts, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralised applications. The Telos team aims towards “building fast, scalable distributed applications with feeless transactions.”

Developers can create blockchain applications on the TELOS network, with user experience similar to traditional applications. The crypto network also offers dApp developers 0.5-second block times (which is 24 times faster than Ethereum), over 1,000 transaction rates per second and free transactions. 

The blockchain launched its Telos EVM – Ethereum Virtual Machine mainnet in October. It runs existing solidity contracts without modification, just like Ethereum. But it’s faster than Ethereum, has higher capacity and is 1/100 of the cost of Ethereum gas fees with no front running. Telos EVM’s transaction fees are so small that sub-dollar trades are feasible, making DeFi trading accessible for everyone.

The Telos Network is based on the EOSIO software, and is around 17,000 times more energy-efficient than other networks. The telos coin is marketed as an environmentally friendly coin and part of a sustainable world.

Since the mainnet went live in 2018, launching with no ICO or venture capital funding has helped the blockchain network grow in a decentralized fashion. The cryptocurrency’s founders were given 18 million tokens at the launch and the Telos Foundation 6 million. As of 6 January 2022, there was a total supply of 355 million TLOS, with 270 million TLOS in the circulating supply. You can purchase the coins from KuCoin, Gate.io, Uniswap, MEXC and Bitfinex.

Telos news

According to the Telos’ whitepaper, its governance structure gives developers and the community members significant control of the blockchain platform, compared to other cryptocurrencies. Telos coin news has been focused around three major themes in the past few months: Telos EVM, DeFi partnerships and Telos Foundation board elections. 

Elections will be complete by 4 January 2022, and the new Telos Foundation board will roll out. Telos EVM has been live since November 2021, bringing high-speed DeFi. While Guido Vranken of Sentnl was auditing the Telos EVM smart contract, he discovered a security vulnerability in Go Ethereum (Geth) code. 

Additionally, Telos announced DeFi partnerships last year. It partnered with SushiSwap, allowing users to take advantage of Telos EVM’s speed and scalability. The DeFi platform currently moves over $500m in daily trading volume. It also partnered with Multichain (formerly known as AnySwap) to enable community members to easily move tokens, like USDC, USDT, ETH, BNB, MATIC, FTM and AVAX, via the Telos EVM.

One Telos project is TelosPunks. The concept is based on CryptoPunks. It will feature 10,000 collectible characters, created for the Telos EVM, courtesy of NFT artist The Big Gooey. Initially, TelosPunks will be airdropped to random Telos EVM wallets and be available from the TelosPunks.com website. The goal is to generate approximately 10 million TLOS in revenue by the time all 10,000 TelosPunks have been sold.

Telos price analysis

Telos has been on an uptrend since the beginning of 2021. The blockchain team has been attracting users and investors with the Telos EVM launch, giving sneak peeks into the process, being named the most energy-efficient blockchain, and receiving an audit certificate from Sentnl

On 9 November 2021, Telos raised $8m in funding from a group of five prominent crypto investors, led by ConsenSys and Polygon investor John Lilic. According to reports, the strategic deal could provide a major capital boost to the blockchain before the launch of the Telos EVM platform. 

In the deal, 8 million tokens were sold at $1 each, TLOS was trading at $0.90 that day. Investors paid a $0.10 premium on the market price. The total amount was distributed to the Telos Ethereum Gnosis safe. It will be dispersed between the Telos Foundation, Telos Core Developers and the liquidity fund.

Positive news, the launch and adoption of Telos EVMs, and strategic partnerships helped TLOS to move higher in November. The token hit an all-time high of $1.28 on 23 November 2021.

The telos price started dropping in December amid a malware attack. Douglas Horn, chief architect of Telos blockchain, addressed the community on 7 December 2021. The report noted that Telos Sign was the commonality between the 10 users that were attacked by private key-sniffing malware. 

The malware accessed users’ private keys. The Telos EVM and the Telos blockchain were not compromised. A lot of metadata was left behind and the Telos team is running an investigation on it.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
