About Decred

Decred (DCR) is a cryptocurrency that is based on Bitcoin, with significant differences. With Decred, the power of decisions does not only belong to miners. It also extends into the community. The way this is done is through a hybrid mining system that combines "proof of work," and "proof of stake" protocols. You can find out more about these systems in their documentation library.

Their unique system enables the community to guide the project. Anybody can start a new proposal, suggest an update, or develop new functionality for the platform. Developers get paid for their work through the Decred Blockchain, and progress can be monitored by anyone, at any time.
