Decred Short Description

Decred is a community-directed digital currency designed to be a superior store of value for generations to come.

Decred uses a hybrid Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism designed to keep PoW miners’ power in in check and ensure no group can make consensus rule changes without the consent of the community.
