Decred (DCR) resolves the issue of governance: a serious issue arising from dominance of a minority of minable coins and the fact that decisions are made by this minority, not a majority. DCR resolves the issue by equalising the voices of both miners and investors in decision-making process regarding the project.
By using both Proof of Work (PoW) and Proof of Stake (PoS), DCR recognises the importance of miners and rewards them for the effort that they put in. for investors, they are given the power to vote over significant matters through PoS. This model of fair governance is exemplary for cryptocurrencies for their better future.
DCR was also present at Consensus 2018, which helped boost their price. Today, DCR is still looking bullish on the DCR/USD chart and is expected to experience another breakout.
