DECENT is a Decentralized Content Distribution Network that is Open-Source and utilizes Blockchain to ensure Trust and Security. Our vision is to create a fully integrated & trustworthy worldwide system of digital content distribution in which the communication flow is secured and timestamped by the blockchain mechanism. DECENT aims to become a liaison between various industries by bridging the gap between the emerging blockchain ecosystem.
Fascination by innovative technologies and vigorous approach to life lead Matej Michalko and Matej Boda, together to reach a common goal to recreate Digital Content Distribution processes all over the world. While having a discussion about potential future uses of the Bitcoin’s underlying technology, they decided to implement principles of decentralization into the communication flow of today’s society. With the intention to revolutionize data distribution on the Internet they founded DECENT in 2015. Since then, multiple milestones were achieved e.g. prototype finalization and demonstration of DECENT functionalities, ICO launch in September 2016 with 5200 BTC raised in the first two weeks.
