Telos (TLOS) Token Migration on Ethereum, BNB Networks and Beyond

June 10, 2024
min read

New TLOS token contracts are available on Ethereum and BNB networks.  

We are moving away from our third party bridge provider in ptokens to our own contract based on the Layerzero OFT standard. 

This change impacts the existing BNB Chain and Ethereum based TLOS.
The change will have no impact on TelosEVM and TelosZero based TLOS.

The existing ptokens TLOS but will no longer be the primary/official version of TLOS on BSC and Ethereum so all exchanges and wallets are being asked to transition. Although ptokens TLOS will continue to be pegged to native TLOS we are not sure it will remain operational past the end of 2024.

The new version of cross chain TLOS will be available on our official bridge interface: Users of the ptokens version of TLOS are encouraged to follow the migration guide included in this article.

Note: The Telos Foundation has extended the reimbursement fees charged by pnetwork until the end of June 30, 2024. 

Why we have made this move:

  • Better support: Moving to contracts maintained by the Telos community means better support
  • Unified Integration: The Move to OFT based TLOS means better support from and other Telos interfaces
  • Lower fees: No fees (beyond gas and external party oracle/relayer fees) are to be applied.
  • Easier movement between chains: the new standard allows minting and burning TLOS between chains.

The old and new contracts.
