Decred is a cryptocurrency, similar to Bitcoin, with a strong focus on community input, open governance and sustainable funding and development. It utilizes a hybrid "Proof-of-Work” and “Proof-of-Stake” mining system to ensure that a small group cannot dominate the flow of transactions or make changes to Decred without the input of the community. Our devs are the same developers that built btcsuite, the Bitcoin Golang implementation. Decred is the first cryptocurrency to implement binding, on-chain voting. In the coming months, we will be rolling out our Lightning Network implementation and privacy features.
