Receive rewards for contributing to the network. All coinage received is a consequence of user participation.
Transactions are made instantly without the need for confirmations.
Coins are removed from transaction history before being spent. The result making CAP impossible to counterfeit.
Unlike other high supply coins, Capital uses a pure PoS consensus, thus consumes very little electricity relative to PoW coins. This results in a much more environmentally sustainable model.
Due to the bias in block rewards towards MN holders, inflation is kept to a minimum.
Capital Coin is backed and used as a utility token on our decentralized marketplace - CapBay.
Medium of Exchange
Used as a means to buy and sell items on the marketplace.
The project has strong connections to the East, with a QQ group approaching 1000 members.
Offchain Marketplace Governance
Moderators are elected via community governance and anyone with a CapBay account can vote their most supported coin into listing on the marketplace.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Who is part of the team?
Capital Coin is made up of 3 developers. We feel that for a privacy based coin like the one that’s been made and being developed, anonymity is important.
How does one participate in the coin vote?
Create a CapBay account and visit the following URL: https://capbay.net/CoinProposals
When will moderator elections take place?
Around early October. The site will be updated around this time with instructions on how to submit an entry.
What currencies are supported on the marketplace?
Currently CAP and BTC are available to deposit and withdraw from the marketplace. More coins will be added after the first round of coin proposals has concluded.
What is the early access program?
