Decred (DCR)

45 Articles 4 Followers

Decred Coin (DCR) is a cryptocurrency and decentralized autonomous organization (DOA) made by Company 0 in 2016. It is a decentralized blockchain network that incorporates and prioritizes decentralized governance and decision making on the blockchain itself. 

Short for decentralized credit, Decred takes Bitcoins best features and introduces mechanisms to improve governance and decision making, a mechanism to limit the mining influence and also a mechanism to conduct Atomic Swaps - a method of transacting between two cryptocurrencies without the need for a centralized exchange. The main feature of Decred is the fact that it offers complete autonomy to stakeholders as improvement and decisions are voted upon and enacted directly by the miners and stakers within the network. Decred are hoping to reduce, and possibly eliminate, hard forks as every user will have a vote. 

The mining consensus algorithm on Decred is a hybrid version which employs both Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS) where both the miners and stakers receive the usual rewards for their relative roles. Mining on PoW is similar to that of mining on Bitcoin. To take part in the Proof-of-Stake system, users must use DCR to buy tickets that will allow you to participate. The staking system encourages longer-term investment in Decred as the DCR is tied up for a few weeks in the staking process. Once the user has received the ticket, it is placed in a pool and will be drawn out randomly. The system is designed so that you have a 50% chance of being chosen within 28 days and a 99.5% chance to be chosen before your ticket expires.
