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: 1 KULU per second (60 KULU per block) 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.
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.
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.
Kulupu was launched in September 2019, with 0 coin in its genesis block. It then emits 1 KLP per second to miners, till today.
Kulupu uses the battle tested RandomX mining algorithm from Monero.
Like any decentralized blockchain system, it is censorship resistant, accessible to everyone, peer-to-peer and permission-less.
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
