Main Question or Discussion Point

Now that quantum teleportation of atoms has been achived via quantum entanglement, what are its implications for our world(reality)? Is information the fundamental building block of the universe and not matter?

Don't be fooled by the term "Information" as used in physics when the media and "gurus" talk about it. It is a blanket term and is not meant to imply that beyond quarks lies "informationons".

Example of practicle "information loss" in a QM/Thermodynamix process would be the famous Information Paradox.

You have misspelled the text. Text says: "Scientists have performed successful teleportation on atoms for the first time, the journal Nature reports."
They say they teleport properties of atoms (information about atoms) not atoms themselves.
