The Guapcoin Core Dev Team is hard at work applying the latest patches to the DAO. In the meantime, the phase 1 roll-out of the Rosewood update is expected to be released in December. This update will introduce an increase of 20 Masternode and 5 staking rewards until the Tulsa update is publicly released ( Guapcoin 3.0). Tulsa is the next major upgrade to the Blockchain, it requires security patching and additional testing on the devnet before implementation onto the main-net. Developer testing is expected to continue until the end of January, with the official release expected in February. After all code updates, patches and testing is a success, the Guapcoin 3.0 software upgrade will be required for all Masternode and desktop wallet users.
Masternode(MN) holders will have up to 21 days to upgrade.
Once at least 90-95 percent of the network is upgraded, a softfork will occur automatically around block height 1,260,000. Any Masternode that has not upgraded within the deadline will be rejected from the network and will not receive Proof of stake rewards or the ability to participate in DAO voting.
In March of 2021, Masternode owners voted and approved the Tulsa update which is designed to deliver the following features.
1. Treasury funding:
2. Governance: Onchain masternode voting
3. The ability to submit proposals on chain via Desktop Wallet
4. Rewards increase and update: 25 guap will extend to block 1,350,000
