Kulupu is a self-updating self-governed blockchain system, using proof-of-work as its consensus engine. Kulupu is built with the Substrate framework. It is one of the first blockchains that combine proof-of-work consensus engine with forkless upgrades.
Proof of Work parameters:
Algorithm: RandomX. Block time: 60 seconds.
Issurance: Voted by on-chain governance. No premine.
Fair, No Premine, Organic Community
Battle tested CPU only RandomX mining algorithm
Automatically execute, control events using Smart Contracts
On chain Governance, Council and Forkless Upgrades.
Kulupu was launched in September 2019, with 0 coin in its genesis block. It then emits 24 KLP per minute to miners, till today.
Kulupu uses the battle tested RandomX mining algorithm from Monero.
A democracy governance system allows Kulupu to build a public-good treasury system, with coin holders having the final say on how funds are spent.
Kulupu has an on-chain democracy system. Users and a democratically elected council can submit referendum proposals, which are voted by coin holders.
By using Substrate, building on the same framework that Polkadot is built on, Kulupu allows easy interoperaibility with Polkadot in the future.
Actor-based smart contract aims at solving some of the outstanding issues in normal call-based smart contract system, improving backward compatibility, fee payment and other areas.
Like any decentralized blockchain system, it is censorship resistant, accessible to everyone, peer-to-peer and permission-less.
Block reward lock and signed mining allows Kulupu to account for specific point-in-time security aspect. It also prevents hash-power rental attacks and botnets.
The majority of the governance process happens as referendum, ensuring that the network only enact changes when the majority of the stakeholders agree. Two assisted groups are also elected by stakeholders to deal with issues such as identity and emergency hard forks. They are the council and the technical committee.Learn More
