Announcements regarding our community
I'm happy to announce that today marks a turning point for Kapu's growth and community, today marks the day where we show off the Kapu Community Hub idea which will be a way for all of the community to get together through development, proposals as well as access a very cool automatic monthly faucet for everyone who holds Kapu. We're excited to be able to get everyone together and we believe now more than ever it is important for all of us to connect and engage with each other in order to grow Kapu.
As a team we are excited to deliver both on the community front but also be a place for archaeologists & historians to connect and see just how important blockchain can be to their industry. Going forward we expect the hub to be built within the next three months and the first main tool will be the Kapu Faucet that will allow anyone with a Kapu wallet to get automatic free Kapu providing they have Kapu in their wallet when they sign up and after each month.
We are also launching the Community Delegate program along with the Kapu Community Fund which will not only help further projects amongst the community but to provide ways to further expand Kapu's reach in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world. We have successfully got three of Ark's most popular delegates on board to help grow Kapu's delegate network and I'm happy to announce that The Foundry, Dutch Delegate & Ark Land delegates will be opening their proposals and offering incentives not only to current Kapu voters but to those voting for them on their Ark delegation and future delegate systems such as with persona to join Kapu and connect with us :slightly_smiling_face:
Now that we are only a short time away from the livecoin listing, it will be easier than ever to organically grow Kapu's outreach and I look forward to seeing the potential of this community be reached over the coming months and years! If you guys have any questions please feel free to let me know and if you currently run a delegate and are interested in joining our Community Delegate program please let me know!
Thanks for your continued support

Delegates & Proposals
Are you running for a delegate? Get your votes here with your proposal!
Dutchdelegate is proud to present their proposal for the Kapu network. Under guidance of Charles, Rudy and Rhmral a Dutchdelegate node will now run on the Kapu network. With the expertise gained from running a delegate on the Ark Ecosystem, we can ensure our voters the best quality. For the ones who don’t know us yet, all three of us live in the Netherlands and are graduate students at the Radboud University. Rudy and Rhmral both have a background in Information Sciences and Cyber Security. Charles specializes in Data Science and Bioinformatics.
We are early Ark investors and big fan of the Ecosystem. Last few months we have been busy promoting Ark at meetups, deploying tools for the Ark community, organising our own Ark meetups as well as representing Ark at the Cambridge hackathon. Read more about what we do for the Ark Ecosystem on our Medium account https://medium.com/@Dutch_Delegate/. We now want to contribute our services to more DPOS ecosystems like the Kapu network. Besides our 85% payout to voters, we want to contribute more to the community by supporting the Kapu Community Faucet.
What does this entails?
“With the Kapu Community Faucet (KCF) voters will be able to enter their wallet address and sign up to the faucet. At the end of every month you will get a small amount of Kapu that you can retrieve from the faucet. The faucet rewards holders of Kapu, when you sign up the faucet detects the amount of Kapu in your wallet, if when you check back in a month it detects that the value of Kapu has not gone below the initial amount then it gives extra Kapu from the faucet to the wallet address, this bonus scales the longer you hold that initial amount of Kapu.”

Let's get down to business, I don't got no time to play around what is this....
KAPU uses DPoS (Delegated Proof of Stake) consensus in order to produce / confirm blocks (read ARK voting explained to learn more).
You can use your KAPU to vote or un-vote a delegate. In this short guide we’ll show you how you can vote (cast a vote towards the delegate you choose — whether it is yourself or another community member you wish to support, like projects, pools, or a friend, or to un-vote a delegate you are already voting for in case you decide you want to change the vote to someone else. Voting with your KAPU can provide you with extra KAPU due to the forging rewards that are processed by delegates. Rewards are awarded to 51 top ranked active delegates.
First if you haven’t, you will need to download and install the Kapu Desktop Client from here: https://github.com/kapucoin/kapu-desktop/releases, and then import and access the wallet you want to vote from.
If you want to register a delegate yourself, you should follow this guide first :
Some basic voting info :1 KAPU ADDRESS CAN VOTE FOR ONLY 1 DELEGATE AT A TIME (if you wish to vote for more than 1 delegate, split you wallet in more KAPU addresses and repeat the vote process — for example, send the amount you wish to vote from the second wallet to the second wallet. 1 KAPU EQUALS A VOTING WEIGHT OF 1. The more ark you hold, the more weight you hold in your possession — but note that if you split the wallet your voting power splits with it. For example, if you have 1,000 KAPU your voting power is equal to 1,000 KAPU, if you split that in to 2 equal wallets each having 500 KAPU the voting power of the 1st wallet will be 500 KAPU and the 2nd one 500 KAPU. EACH VOTE OR UN-VOTE COSTS 1 KAPU. When you vote for a delegate it costs 1 KAPU. When you un-vote, the cost is the same 1 KAPU.
This guide is written for KAPU Desktop Wallet 1.5.0+ (https://github.com/kapucoin/kapu-desktop/releases) if you are using versions 1.4.3 or lower please watch this YouTube video on how to vote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftoGKaXdZy0Don’t know who to vote for or support with your KAPU?

Kapu Community Fund
This is a place for you to present proposals to the KCF board members, a proposal should be based around a community project which needs funding, these should be serious ideas and relate to Kapu. The board will decide which projects to fund and there will be update articles made on our official medium indicating any decisions made.
