Decred (/ˈdi:ˈkred/, /dɪˈkred/, dee-cred) is an open-source cryptocurrency,[1] Released in February 2016.[2][3]

History[edit | edit source]

Decred is a distributed public ledger which operates via a hybridized Proof-of-Work (PoW), Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain consensus protocol.[4]

On February 7, 2016 Decred was released by Chicago-based Company 0.[2] Decred developers executed an atomic swap between Decred (DCR) and Litecoin (LTC) in September 2017.[5]

In June 2017 Decred became the first cryptocurrency project to approve a change to its protocol through a binding on-chain vote.[6][7]
