What is Decred?

Decred is a blockchain platform that is more decentralised and community-driven than other cryptocurrency projects. It aims to resolve some of the issues many other platforms face, such as lack of governance and decision-making processes, by allowing all stakeholders a say in the network.  

How does Decred work?

The Decrednetwork uses a hybrid system that combines the proof of work and proof of stake consensus algorithms. PoW in the Decred network is used for mining, while PoS is for voting. This means that both miners and stakeholders get a say in the network, its developments, and its future. 

How is the Decred network secured?

It is secured through its combination of proof of work and proof of stake. PoW miners on the network solve complex mathematical equations to validate and secure transactions before adding them to the blockchain. For their work, validator nodes earn block rewards consisting of DCR tokens. 

To help prevent centralisation, PoS stakeholders vote on proposed changes to the network. 

What is Decred used for?

Decred can be used for many applications, including transactions and voting on its future. However, two main uses for DCR are as a store of value and for speculation. Users can send and receive DCR tokens in exchange for goods and services, much like many other cryptocurrencies. 

Its volatile price makes it an attractive option for speculators betting on short term fluctuations. 

Why does DCR have value?

Decred‘s built-in treasury system ensures funding for future development and projects. This helps promote the network’s long term growth prospects and sustainability. DCR is used for transaction fees on the network; as it grows, the value of its token may increase. 

Who created Decred?

Decred was founded by Jake Yocom-Piatt and a team of developers who wanted to create a decentralised community-driven cryptocurrency project. Decred aims to create a platform that is resistant to centralisation and has a strong focus on scalability.

Where can I buy Decred?

You can buy Decred on a crypto exchange. An exchange is a marketplace that allows you to sign up, deposit your money, and buy some crypto, just as you would with a stock platform.

Most cryptocurrency brokers allow you to keep the coins you buy in your account. However, you may want to sign up for a dedicated crypto wallet for some extra security.

Are there any other ways to invest in Decred?

The simplest way to invest in Decred is to buy it outright. However, another option is to simply open a crypto account. Crypto accounts are like regular bank accounts and allow you to store a variety of currencies, send and receive payments, earn interest on savings, and spend freely with a credit card.

You can also invest in crypto more generally through a crypto ETF or a crypto fund. These are financial instruments that give you exposure to a group of leading cryptocurrencies, more suited to high net worth individuals.
