Decred is a cryptocurrency that uses hybrid Proof of Work/Proof of Stake to enable decentralization and stakeholder governance.
In Decred, both the work of miners and stakeholders is required to apend blocks to its ledger, creating a more fair checks and balances system between users, miners, and developers. Stakeholders are also able to vote on consensus rule changes and off-chain governance initiatives created as proposals on Politeia.
Decred is positioning itself to be a hypersecure, adaptable, and self-sustaining store of value. Its hybrid consensus model requires far more work to rewrite the chain, its open governance process consistently produces innovation, and its treasury will be managed entirely by its stakeholders. Decred is iterating on how to both program digital value and how to coordinate open source systems.
This is an open group for developers, researchers, and investors interested in learning more about Decred and the economic features that make it an excellent digital store of value.
We will be exploring Decred's technologic, economic, and social implications alongside the core technical team.
Join us for monthly meetups to hear from Decred community members and to network with fellow enthusiasts. We plan to cover a wide array of technical topics and experiment with presentation types — come prepared for engaging seminars and debates!
