Utility Nodes:

How much will a UN cost?

The initial staking requirement for a uPlexa node will be 2,000,000 UPX and will slowly decrease over time in accordance to our emission curve.

How long are the coins locked?

Staked coins are locked for 30 days.

Is there a maximum of Utility Nodes?

The formula for finding the maximum amount of Utility nodes at any given time would be to take the current circulating supply and dividing it by 2,000,000. At the time of writing, the circulating supply is 1,816,743,551 UPX, thus the maximum amount of nodes would be 908. Please keep in mind, that the premine will not be allocated towards Utility nodes. The team still controls ~580,000,000 UPX coins at this time, meaning the actual amount of Utility Nodes that could run on the network at this time are 618.

What programming language will be used to write the UNApps?


Free dVPN:

Why a free VPN?

The costs of data will be minimal due to the high amount of availability created by Utility Nodes, whom also receive a high amount of dividends for their participation on the uPlexa network.

Will the dVPN use the IP address from the UN?

Yes, Utility Nodes will act as exit relays on PlexaNet.

Will the dVPN use the data of the UN?

Yes, all data from the client will be passed through the Utility Nodes as the dVPN will be an overlay to all connectivity.
