Guapcoin developers are hard at work testing new features on the testnet. As a result, the roll-out of the Rosewood update will be delayed and combined with the Tulsa update. The Tulsa update is the next major upgrade to the Blockchain and will require extended testing on the devnet before implementation onto the main-net. Developer testing is expected to continue until the end of August. If testing is a success, the Guapcoin 4.0 software upgrade to all Masternodes will be required.
Masternode(MN) holders will have 20-30 days to upgrade.
Once at least 90-95 percent of the network is upgraded, a softfork will occur automatically. Any Masternode that has not upgraded within the deadline will be rejected from the network and will not receive Proof of stake rewards. 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
4. Rewards increase and update: 25 guap will extend to block 2,000,000
