LAPO Core Stable repository

Build Status GitHub version

LAPO (LAX) is the native token of the LAPO Network Protocol, all the transactions running on the network are expressed in LAX and the cost of the transaction is paid directly in LAX. The services offered in the LAPO ecosystem (ePlatform and eFinance) have a cost expressed in LAX and might require a locked minimal amount of LAX in order to work.


The classic Bitcoin approach is essentially a way to synchronize a distributed system through common transaction logs. It requires that each network node store the full copy of the transaction history. Obviously, this does not scale well, since eventually not every node will be able to store the full history.

LAPO Network Protocol works in a “2 Tier” Model where each tier has a specific function

The First Tier is used by the miner to secure the Blockchain using Lyra2zz Proof-of-Work algorithm until the Q2 2019. After that date the First Tier will work only on Proof-of-Stake mode inherited from PIVX.

The Second Tier is the “Masternode” level: Masternodes are used to process the transactions and the Blockchain. This approach produces the best performance possible using a robust and highly serviceable network in the most critical part of the Blockchain. The Masternode process all the Proof-of-Service algorithm.


Unlike Bitcoin's single-tier network, where all jobs on the network are performed by miners, LAPO Network Protocol utilizes a two-tier network. Certain network functions, such as creating new blocks, are handled by the miners. The second tier of the network consists of "Masternodes" which perform more critical tasks like: Lightning Payment Confirmation and governance functions. Masternodes require 1’000’000 LAX as collateral to prevent sybil attacks. That collateral can be spent or removed at any time, but doing so removes the associated Masternode from the network.

For running a Masternode we recommend: 2GB of RAM, 2GHZ of Processor, 40GB of HD, Ubuntu 18.04 and a dedicated IP.
