What is Decred?

Decred is a community-focused cryptocurrency that operates a hybrid proof-of-stake/proof-of-work consensus mechanism. Decred intends to address the scalability and governance issues that plague legacy cryptocurrencies by running a fully decentralised development process. It aims to create a blockchain that can be efficiently upgraded in line with its community needs to avoid messy hard forks.

Other than true decentralisation, Decred also lets its users join mining pools with a relatively low barrier to entry. They can join a proof-of-work pool in order to be given mining tokens relative to the hashing power they contribute to mining each block, or a proof-of-stake pool to help amplify their current DCR stake.

DCR is the native token of the Decred network and is the foundation for the protocol’s economic and governance systems. Users can stake their DCR coins to participate in proposals and earn voting rights. Staked and mined DCR tokens are also used to validate transactions on the network.

Decred (DCR) is in the top 1,000 cryptocurrencies in the world by market cap, valued at $548,249,874. The current price of Decred is $54.6234, which is 2.019% higher than yesterday.
