The previous edition of the telokanda white-paper posted on 26th November 2019 before the launch of telokanda 1.0 can be seen on this steemit post ( and it has been reviewed and edited, today 24th December, 2019 for modifications and better adjustments.

The content of this white paper would be made effective after the telokanda 1.1 dapp has been launched.

Read any of these articles below in order to understand telokanda 1.0 which is already operational on word press prototype for telokanda.




Telokanda is a community to attract Africans and other interested people from various part of the world to TELOS in order to create deeper engagements. Telokanda will attract Africans and other people interested in blockchain technology, EOSIO, and steem (including large existing steem communities) to the telokanda platform. Telokanda will create a hub of content and community for African blockchain fans. Our focus on social education and entertainment will create a rich environment that will retain users and focus their passion for crypto towards Telos and Telos-based dapps like Sesacash, SEEDs, Havuta, and more.

The Telokanda team is a group of brilliant young minds, creatively working together as a smart team to build Telos based projects in order to give more use case to TLOS and add more value to the Telos network.

Telokanda was co-founded by two west Africans (From Nigeria) and an American (From USA).

“Telokanda is a community that rewards their users with TEDA, KANDA and TLOS for just taking some certain actions and completing certain tasks on the telokanda platform. The rewards are given with respect to the type of telokanda account a user has and the type of action or task the user completes!”

TEDA is the native token of the telokanda platform and it is meant to reward users respectively for some of the specified actions they take on the Telokanda platforms. TEDA will have a maximum supply of 1,000,000,000 tokens and each token will be payed out socially with transfers and would serve as rewards taken on the telokanda platforms.

KANDA is a steem-engine token meant to reward post shared on the tribe of telokanda, which uses telokanda tags and other telokanda related tags on steemit.

TLOS is the coin of from the TELOS blockchain of which telokanda is being built upon. This is the coin users of telokanda have to buy and stake in their accounts in order to gain TEDA or KANDA rewards. The higher the stake, the higher the rewards.

Telokanda will encourage, the buying and holding of TLOS tokens and TEDA to upgrade a telokanda account into a higher version. (Read more on “types of telokanda accounts below) is the web address for the Telokanda’s main website!

The telokanda website is already in operation as a word-press website giving telokanda related task to telokandians perform and get reward explained carefully on this posts: nicked Telosads and it is known to be the first advertisement network on Telos network. It is also the first project that telokanda community will launch on their website, where users can buy and sell adverts and also get rewarded for taking actions on other people’s advertisement. which would be a section on the dapp, citizens of telokanda (called Telokandians) can get educated about TELOS network, blockchain/cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrency trading.we will post video contents on YouTube and the URL to the video will be available on so Telokandans can click the video, watch and learn about the topic being discussed and will also get rewarded for taking such actions. will be an entertainment platform that integrates music, comedy, TV shows and other forms of entertainments by Telokandians and for Telokandians, and telokandians that takes parts in creating the entertainment or gets entertains will get rewarded respectively.

Many more ideas will to come from Telokanda as time goes on and they will all be launched as a sub-domain on the telokanda website.

Each ideas has different purposes and different use cases but each one will always create a new portal for on boarding more people into the cryptocurrency sphere, to buy and hold TELOS native tokens, TLOS in order to add more value to it.


Telokanda is really a great project which needs to be funded by TELOS foundation as soon as possible.

From telokanda social media pages on telegram, twitter and steemit users are on boarded into TELOS community to perform TELOS and telokanda related task and get rewarded with kanda tokens from steem-engine!

PROJECT 1 is called “telosads” which would be available on the telokanda mobile application and website through this domain, where users would buy and sell ads and also get rewarded for taking actions on ads which will vary with respect to the type of telokanda accounts they own.

PROJECT 2 is called the “teloseducation”, available on telokanda mobile application and website this is where new users of telos and telokanda which has just been on boarded into the sphere will get education for free about blockchains, cryptocurrencies, telokanda and of course TELOS foundation.

PROJECT 3 is called the “telosentertainment” available on telokanda website and mobile application. Where Telos based entertainment and blockchain entertainment would be broadcast to telokanda users and this will really help to promote Telos through various entertainments like comedy, music etc.


We are currently promoting TELOS on all our social media pages, beginning from our telegram group chat which has over 300+ active members to our discord channel, twitter page, medium blogs, steemit blogs, Facebook page, and Instagram page. We try to tip every new member of telokanda on our telegram channel with at least 1TLOS and are catching up the requirements for a balance of ease of use and active engagement (So we aren’t just tipping without getting something in return). We fill in the gaps of this early phase of Telos making social media posts, inviting new users to our telegram and we promote TELOS Blockchain, telos dapps and try to adhere to Telos Foundation principles in the process. We also have a word press website (Steempress and Wordproof ready) that we use as the telokanda 1.0 network launchpad, ready for Scatter/SQRL integration.

The Telokanda 1.0 Launchpad starts from the Word press site, and extends to into an advertising dapp built on telos. This is where Telokanda development bounties come in and the TLOS requested in this proposal will be used to pay Telokanda developers to build the telokanda hub of contents!

We even have plans to have KANDA and TEDA tokens added to Sesacash and allow African Users to withdraw KANDA and TEDA to local mobile money MTN local fiat and utilize the SQRL Telos Bancor liquidity pool

We also have a word press website that we use as the telokanda 1.0 networks to task and reward our users who help in Telos promotion. Check and read this post which explains Telokanda 1.0 better (

Users will be given a referral links that corresponds to their unique registration IDs in order to on board their friends and family (more people) into the platform and each time his/her referred user earns tokens on the platform, he/she will be rewarded 5% of what his/her referred user earns. This 5% of the reward does not in any away affect the real rewards of the referred user.

The person who got referred to the telokanda platform will automatically get 20 TEDA token as sign up bonus on telokanda and the person who also referred another user equally gets 20 TEDA tokens as referral bonus, after which the referrer continues enjoying the 5% of reward for every reward his/her referred user earns.

(Formula: earning from referred user in a day multiplied by 0.005) = amount earned from each referred user


To downgrade a telokanda account from a upper kanda grade to a lower kanda grade, the amount of TLOS token a user is holding in his/her account would be divided by 5 and would be released weekly in five different fraction with respect to the amount TLOS token the account is holding, Then within five (5) weeks the TLOS or TEDA tokens the user was holding in his/her kanda account will become available for liquid transactions when they are released after 5 different .


l The downgrade of any kanda account can be canceled at any time!

l Users can choose between which staked tokens to withdraw, TLOS or TEDA and the same downgrade process will take place.


The token economy of TEDA a native token on telokanda is used to reward users of the Telokanda and other teda platforms, to pay for ads, for transactions like bill payments etc. Just like any other currency.

The inflation of this token will be controlled at good annual printing rate, (APR) to avoid hyper inflation.

The rewards in TEDA tokens given to each telokanda user reduces by 5% each KANDA YEAR (each kanda year is made up of 15 months and the TELOKANDA new year start after every 15 months). This will help reduce the printing of TEDA tokens to add more value to it as time goes on.


The reward in TEDA tokens which each user of Telokanda receive per specified action on telokanda is calculated this way:

0.5% of the amount of TLOS tokens each user’s account is holding

Formula: (0.5/100 × amount of TLOS token a user is holding)


(0.005 × amount of TLOS token a user is holding) = (n TEDA) in rewards!

(0.005 × nTLOS) = nTEDA


For a Kanda account holding 1000 TLOS

(0.005 × 1000) = 5 TEDA per action for users holding 1000 TLOS

NOTE that users can only be rewarded with respect to their type of kanda accounts for a maximum of 10 actions/tasks per day.


TELOKANDA management rewards a maximum of 10 actions per user in a day following GMT+0, making it a minimum of (225 ×10)TEDA tokens a day for Kanda 5 accounts. There is no limit to what amount of TEDA a Kanda 5 account can earn in a day but the rewarded actions are limited to 10.


These are users whose telokanda accounts are holding below 1,000 TLOS tokens (0–999 TLOS).

There is no maximum reward for president accounts of any kanda account level and kanda 5 accounts.

The same process for calculating the maximum profit a kanda account can make in a day is shown using the example above which follows the same process for all as far as the correct formula is used to do the calculations.
