Kapucoin - Archaeological Blockchain



  • History of the coin

    The Capua coins (KAPU in oscus alphabet) were forged during the Second Punic War (218 BC) in one of the few cities in Italy that decided to ally with Hannibal to fight Roman hegemony. Capua had definitively interrupted relations with Rome and, in order to finance its expenses, forged and spread the coin along Atella and Calatia. Coins were forged with all three metals (bronze, silver, gold), but Capua was the only one of the three cities to issue precious metal coins. KAPU was also famous for its gladiatorial school that, along Rome and Pompei, represented the excellence of the empire’s schools. There were solely gladiators with a great stature and strength and they were trained to give birth to bloody spectacles to entertain the people and aristocracy. During these spectacles the man who was defeated, not only lost the match, but also life. It is precisely in this context that the imposing name of the gladiator Spartacus distinguished itself, who, forced to fight inside the Amphitheater Campano, he led the revolt of the slaves in 73 AD.

    Another peculiarity of the city was to make and maintain multiple copies of the city’s popular records and to deploy them geographically at various places throughout the territory in order to preserve the integrity of the information. Historically speaking, it might be unsuitable but we could say that the first BlockChain of the world was born in Capua and it’s from this teaching that we can be inspired in order to preserve our history. From this philosophy come out KAPU, which, as a cryptocurrency based on the DPOS system, aims to make the history trackable, reachable and accessible to anyone, so people can see everything that contributed to building and enhancing the history of humanity.

    How it w orks

    Purposes, DPOS and chain explanation, coin etc.

    Delegated Proof of Stake is a method for securing a cryptocurrency network,
    processing transactions and achieving a distributed consensus regarding
    the ownership of funds without the need for a central authority.
    It is a variant of the Proof of Stake system, which itself was developed in
    order to reduce the cost and inefficient electricity usage associated with
    Proof of Work systems such as the one used by Bitcoin.
    The DPOS method, developed by Daniel Larimer and implemented for the
    first time by the Bitshares blockchain, diverge from the POS system.
    The difference between a POS system and a DPOS system is that POS
    involves the participation of the entire network to validate a transaction
    whereas DPOS involves only a limit number of delegates.
    These delegates perform the function of validating transactions, maintaining
    the blockchain and take the transaction fees as profit.

    sa

    Within this transaction validation system, each delegate receives a reward
    in KAPU token, in the form of transaction fee, in order to cover the operating
    costs needed to keep in efficiency conditions forgetting nodes (to which
    transaction verification is delegated) as well as maintaining the KAPU
    network in safe conditions.
    If delegates should conduct their job incorrectly or take advantage of
    their own authority, the votes may be revoked by voters and assigned to
    a new delegate. This system can guarantee the security of the network
    within a representative democratic logic.


    Unlike other DPOS systems, the KAPU network is composed of 51 delegates.
    The decision to assign the transaction validation to only 51 delegates was
    taken in order to allow us to guarantee a fast, efficient and stable network
    with an incredible time limit of 8 seconds per block.
    The KAPU DPOS based system is essential, safe and also compatible with
    energy saving.
    The KAPU project is also inspired by some innovators in this field like LISK,
    SHIFT, ARK in order to create the first archaeological blockchain and to
    gather information about history, finds, ancient artefacts and finally make
    them usable by the entire community.

    Network Security

    Technical details about DPOS

    Information is defined as immutable when, after being written or stored, it
    remains unchanged and the condition of impossibility of modifying it by a
    user occurs.
    For example, let’s consider a database, we know that it contains information
    that are accessible to read by the normal users but can only be edited by
    the user who manage the database itself.
    From the user side the database is immutable because he can not make
    any changes but it’s not the same for the database administrator, who has
    the ability to modify content as it likes.
    This problem is solved using blockchain technology.
    The blockchain is a distributed database that allows anyone to add
    information following presetted and approved rules.
    In the DPoS systems, of which KAPU is part, the addition of information
    into the blockchain (technically block validation), is made possible by
    delegates (or forgers, the equivalent of miners in POW systems) through a
    system of representative democracy of consensus, already covered within
    this document.

    By design, blockchains are inherently resistant to modification of the data.
    Once recorded, the data in any given block cannot be altered retroactively
    without the alteration of all subsequent blocks and a collusion of the
    network majority.
    KAPU’s blockchain guarantees high security and remain public, accessible
    and completely transparent to everyone.
    The KAPU network uses 10 seed nodes installed on dedicated servers to
    support the network and keep it running without any slowdown even in the
    remote possibility that all 51 delegate nodes should go down simultaneously
    (ex. DDOS attack).
    After the mainnet launch, the seed node number will be progressively
    increased.
    The main seed node runs into a dedicated high performance server
    managed by an important European farm.
    In order to have an high security of the KAPU network we have decided to
    entrust the protection of our seed nodes to cloudflare services
    that provide a complete protection against denial of service attacks
    (DDoS attacks).
    We’re glad of having invested in the security of the KAPU network to offer
    the best services to our users.

    ICO details

    The KAPU’s pre-sale began on 15 June and will end on 31 August 2017.
    In order to have funds to develop this incredible project we decided to
    launch an ICO that will start on 16 September and will end on 16 October
    2017.
    The ICO’s goal will be to raise funds that will allow developers to make
    various implementation and improvements of the KAPU project. All ICO’s
    details can be found on https://kapu.one
    During the ICO, investors will be able to participate using various DPOS
    cryptocurrencies such as LISK, Shift, ARK, RISE and also with BTC and ETH.
    MainNET launch at 21 October 2017

    The KAPU’s team had a long cooperation with the ARK’s team and during this
    cooperation both teams maturated a solid confidence and collaboration.
    Thanks to this cooperation we decided to entrust ARK the escrow’s role of
    the ICO.
    During the ICO will also available an online shop where users will be able
    to buy various gadgets such as mousepads, brooches, cups and the
    legendary KAPU’s shir ts!
    The distribution of KAPU coins will be as follows:
    In total will be distributed 115,000,000 KAPU coins


    Reward system

    Every day 10,800 blocks are forged by 51 active delegates.
    • 1 active delegate proceeds on average 211 blocks each day
    • 1 active delegate forge on average (it could be a bit more or a bit ‘less
    depending on the missed blocks and the average block time):

    • 422 KAPUs every day
    • 12.800 KAPUs each month
    • 154.030 KAPUs every year
    • 51 active delegates will forge about 7,747,920 KAPUs every year
    The reward of 2 KAPU will be maintained for the foreseeable future.
    Unlike some other blocks, KAPU will not reduce forging prizes every year or
    simplify the size of a given block, but because of the same prize, inflation
    will drop each year.

    The technical description of KAPU Blockchain is as follows
    • DPoS (Delegated Proof of Stake)

    • 51 active delegates
    • Delegates chosen with the DPOS voting system
    • 110.000.000 KAPUs - Seeded Genesis Block
    • Multi-signature wallet
    • Constant block reward
    • Inflation (with 8 seconds per block)                                                         
    • 6,31% for the first year
    • 5,93% for the second year
    • 4,02% for the third year
    Inflation rate over time
    (Ethereum and Lisk for comparison)
    • 8 seconds for block
    • Possible reduction of block time with future updates to the core.
    • 25 transactions for block

    The blockchain in the ar cheological world

    The archeological blockchain

    The blockchain isn’t only the cryptocurrency. The virtual currencies are
    only one of his numerous and possible applications.
    Thanks to a decentralized management the blockchain allow to send
    any data safely, without any middleman and permitting a data exchange
    without risks between two entities.
    And that’s the kind of safety that with its characteristics of immutability
    excludes the need to use third party means such as an e-mail provider,
    a cloud computing service, external certifiers etc.

    For the development of the archeological blockchain data relating ancient
    artifacts through a shared system that will permit to different entities to
    share, in a fast and safe way, information about all artifacts.

    Such information sharing mode will ensure a concrete support to those
    professional user that operates in the archeological world; at the same time
    it will be a useful aid also for Ministry, university, schools and museums but
    specially it will allow the creation of an ‘ad hoc’ service of which will benefit
    citizens to which will be offered the consultation service of a particular
    artifact and about all the relevant information with many tools like 3D
    viewers, augmented reality, 3D printing etc

    The technique of “Notarization

    The most important changes are happening right in the legal notary activity, a sector intended to be subject to a radical rethinking and of a substantial revision. In the case of the Archeological blockchain, the technique of data notarization aims to exploit the security principles and immutability provided natively by the public blockchain to purpose to respond more effectively to the regulations required in Europe and America. Our TEAM has observed that the Approach of traditional notary services are basically based on trust in the counterparts and go through iter and complex process that involve both risks and high costs. Unlike above, the intrinsic logic of blockchain with the opentimestamps, can guarantee independence from any third part provider, as well as a higher level of security.
