Our history

is our greatest asset that we need to preserve for both current and future generations


The Capua coins (that mean KAPU in the oscus alphabet) were forged during the Second Punic War (218 BC) in one of the few cities in the Italian peninsula that decided to ally with Hannibal to fight against the Roman Empire.
To achieve this, Capua broke relations with Rome and, in order to finance its expenses, forged and spread its coins around the cities of Atella and Galatia. The majority of the coins were minted in bronze and represented a similar value to those circulated by Rome (Rutter et al, 2001: p. 9). Archaeologically, it is known that Capua certainly minted a silver coin called the Didramma (Sambon 1021; HN Italy 480) and possibly a golden coin called the dracma aurea (HN Italy 479, SNG ANS 145; Rutter et al, 2001: p. 64).
The coin on the left represents the reverse of an oncia with a board running to the right. The value (a “tortello”) is indicated by the dot that can be found at the top of the coin, whilst the inscription “Kapu" on the bottom indicates the mint. (catalogue: HN Italy 506, Sambon 1043). Reference: Rutter et al. (2001). Historia Numorum - Italy. London, p. 9.

Our Work

KAPU wants to use the blockchain to preserve the teachings of history and ensure that our present will be remembered by our children – in the future. This is our goal: to make traceable, accessible and usable – by anyone – everything that has contributed to building and enhancing the history of humanity.


In the case of the Archaeological Blockchain, the technique of data notarization aims to exploit the principles of security and immutability provided by the public Blockchains, in order to respond more effectively to the regulatory requirements of American and European regulations.

Unlike above, the intrinsic logic of blockchain with the opentimestamps, can guarantee independence from any third part provider, as well as a higher level of security.

Our TEAM has observed that the approach of traditional notary services are based on trust in the counterparts and go through iter and complex process that involve both risks and high costs.

The most incisive and significant changes are taking place on the front of the notary and legal activity, a sector destined to be the subject of a radical rethinking and a substantial review.
