DECENT is a blockchain-driven content distribution platform. It enables the exchange of digital assets such as audio, video, text, software or video games. Based on an open-source principle it allows people to develop applications on top of its protocol. DECENT represents a decentralized network of connected individuals and organizations who share their work, information or ideas without being dependent on any middleman or 3rd party.
History[edit | edit source]
DECENT Foundation was established in 2015 by Matej Michalko and Matej Boda. The fully functional prototype of DECENT Blockchain was released in January 2016 followed by the ICO during autumn 2016 and DECENT main-net launch in June 2017.
Concept[edit | edit source]
The concept of DECENT was initially described in a white-paper by Matej Michalko and Josef Sevcik in November 2015. Originally being developed as a content publishing and buying platform in which the data transactions are timestamped in the Blockchain[unreliable source?] and secured by a strong cryptography, DECENT's underlying technology DCore consists of a custom blockchain technology combined with file sharing system IPFS.
As an Open-source protocol DCore allows everyone to use its features and build new decentralized applications (DApps) or implement the protocol into already existing platforms or services.[unreliable source?]
