How to vote

(Election 2019)

1. Download Agama or Komodo Ocean - official link

2. Activate VOTE2019 Coin

3. Import your KMD private key or seed

4. Send your VOTE to one of the addresses listed




* Only first transaction will be counted as a valid vote therefore if you have multiple KMD addresses don't consolidate before sending your VOTE. Instead send your VOTE from 1 address at a time

* If you have multiple KMD addresses you will need to import each private (WIF) key 

* If you keep your KMD in an exchange you will not receive the VOTE2019 air drop as you do not own the private keys - to avoid this you will need to withdraw your KMD to and address in your wallet before April 13th - VOTE2019 air drop will happen on April 13th or 14th

What is a Notary Node?

Excerpts from the original documentation

* 64 special nodes which can create a network of its own dPoW (delayed Proof of Work) peer-to-peer network and communicate with each other exchanging the latest blocks and dPoW consensus information related to the blockchains it is securing. The nodes in this dPoW peer-to-peer network are called Notary Nodes (NN).

* Since dPoW was first created, there have been 4 Notary Nodes reserved for Komodo’s developers. This is still true today.

* The other 60 Notary Nodes are elected based on the votes of KMD holders and how they vote for the Notary Node operators.

* In the second year of Notary Nodes, the top 30 Notary Nodes that completed the most notarizations (of Komodo to Bitcoin or Assetchains to Komodo) are automatically re-elected. In other words, the best-performing notary nodes are automatically re-elected. This gives notary node operators incentive to do their job well, rewards diligent operators, and ensures a smooth transition from one cohort to the next.

* The lowest 30 Notary Nodes positions are opened to the community.

* The location of Notary Node servers must be diversified on all continents. That is why you see the existing Notary Nodes categorized in the following locations: Southern-Hemisphere (SH), Asia-Rusia (AR), North-America (NA), Europe (EU).
