Information

Capital coin is a decentralized, p2p currency that utilizes masternodes to create an ultra secure network.

CAP centres its values around the ideas of libertarianism and crypto anarchism. The core features added to the coin, have been included to rebel against the idea of big government, for example, zerocoin implementation to anonymize transactions and prevent tracking of your funds. In addition to this, using decentralization to reject statism, which concentrates power in the hands of a few government institutions.Ultimately, CAP values unregulated, free market capitalism as a means to determine the allocation of resources within a market.

The cryptocurrency space has grown significantly over the past 6 months. It used to only be attractive to a fringe group of anarcho capitalists, who realized early on, that blockchain could radically alter the system we live under today. However, we feel that the new influx of users into cryptocurrencies are not here for ideological reasons, but mainly as a means to make a quick buck. Capital Coin aims to change this, by bringing awareness to the masses on the benefits of blockchain.

FAQ

General FAQ

Can you mine CAP?

Capital uses a pure POS consensus, thus mining is not possible. The main reason for avoiding the inclusion of miners is because of how inefficient the Proof Of Work consensus is. The only way for the chain to function under POW is by miners solving increasingly complex, cryptographic hashes. There is a strong correlation between network adoption and hash rate, making it very difficult to ever scale Bitcoin sustainably to a point where it would become the main global means of exchange.
Currently, the electricity consumed from mining Bitcoin worldwide is enough to power every single home in Nigeria, a country that houses over 185 million people. If this continues over the long term, it will undoubtedly have catastrophic consequences for the environment.

How can I buy CAP?

A private p2p sale was conducted several hundred blocks after the launch of Capital Coin. The funds for this have been put forward towards exchange listings, marketing costs and future development.

All coins were purchased with the intention of being used as a medium of exchange within the Capital coin ecosystem and not for speculative purposes.

CAP can now be purchased from the following 3 exchanges:CryptoBridge, Escodex, TradeSatoshi.

What exchanges are planned for Capital Coin?

In the future, DEX’s will gain popularity as people look to avoid the heavily regulated KYC requirements that come with a normal exchange.
For this reason, the prime concern has been getting CAP listed to an upcoming DEX like CryptoBridge. On top of this, there are planned listings to Stocks.Exchange and Yobit. By listing to at least 3 mid-tier volume exchanges, we hope that interest and liquidity will increase slowly over time.

Masternode/ Staking

How do I run a masternode?

Is it possible to stake and run a masternode at the same time?

Any coins that are not locked into a node will automatically begin staking as long as your wallet is kept open and running on a PC 24/7.

What is the required amount of coins to run a masternode?

10,000 collateral.

Technical

Why is 50% of the CAP premine not in circulation?

Half of the premine from the genesis block is being dedicated to airdrop and bounty distribution.

Other

Who is part of the team?
