Mainnet

    • Centralized exchanges such as Probit, CoinTiger and others

    • Crypto Locally: find someone in your country to purchase TLOS from

    • NewDex: decentralized exchange with support for multiple wallets

  • Worker Proposal System: the TLOS blockchain designates a fixed amount of TLOS tokens per month to be awarded to work proposals that receive enough votes. This feature gives projects that would otherwise have difficulty raising funds through traditional avenues the ability to persuade TLOS voters that their project is worthy of financial support by the community. Types of projects that have received funding in the past include event, DApps, core TLOS development, marketing efforts, charity, wallet development, education initiatives, and many others.
