      About Decred

      Decred is an open-source, blockchain-based cryptocurrency. It utilizes the proof of activity concept, which is a combination of proof of work and proof of stake consensus protocols. Proof of work favores those that own and maintain expensive mining equipment, leaving smaller network participants at a disadvantage, and proof of stake encourages virtual coin hoarding, limiting cryptocurrency usage. Proof of activity (PoA) is a hybrid of these two, offering the best of both worlds. Decred also features smart contracts, cross-chain atomic swaps between various cryptocurrencies and cross-platform wallets for Windows, macOS and Linux. Cross-chain atomic swaps enable network participants to engage in over-the-counter trading, disabling the involvement of any authority or third party.

      History of Decred(DCR)

      Decred like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Decred’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Decred would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Decred was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Decred or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Decred is a cryptocurrency with the symbol DCR and it’s price ticker on our website is 17.44. Its current price is 17.44 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 1.14. Decred boasts a volume of 497.89 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Decred Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Decred use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Decred base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Decred and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Decred network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Decred Operates on a Blockchain

      Decred, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Decred is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Decred is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Decred’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Decred runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Decred base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Decred are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Decred and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Decred also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Decred Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Decred (DCR) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Decred’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Decred’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Decred which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Decred blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Decred blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the Decred blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Decred Supply Details

      Decred is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. It cannot be printed like governments do with fiat, due to the maximum supply being 21000000 and this dictated by the base code that the Decred network runs on. No more than 21000000 will ever exist unless major changes to the code are applied. Another interesting fact about Decred’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Decred the total supply is 10786831. This is the sum of all Decred units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Decred is 10786831. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

Usually the hardware device that you store your Decred on is offline which is a great security advantage.
