Reviews for Decred

  • Riccardo Spagni on Decred Lead Maintainer at Monero

    I’m supportive of Decred’s efforts to add privacy, because there are actual development chops there, and Decred doesn’t appear overly scammy.

  • Charlie Lee on Decred Creator of Litecoin

    One of the few coins I'm excited about, with an innovative solution to decentralized governance. Decred is basically Dash done right. πŸ˜‚ Consensus is more decentralized than Dash and is enforced.

  • Anthony Di Iorio on Decred Co-founder of Ethereum and CEO of Jaxx

    Decred is not worth spending time and resources pursuing because it does not present anything unique or worthwhile.

    Decred provides unique features that are not currently available to Bitcoin and has a strong focus on development.

  • Ari Paul on Decred Co-founder and CIO of BlockTower Capital

    But many other protocols have been born of true differentiation. Consider Decred β€” created by former Bitcoin developers who wanted to fix things they didn't like about BTC. They added governance, PoW/PoS hybrid β€” which may be more secure than PoW β€” and now, privacy.

  • Eric Meltzer on Decred Partner at INB

    Decred is actually a cool example of some stuff that Bitcoin will never implement. I don’t own any at the moment but like the project a lot.

  • Murad Mahmudov on Decred Cyptocurrency at Adaptive Capital.

    The chances of Decred outcompeting Bitcoin are close to zero.

    Mob rule/the rule of the rich is not ideal for neo-gold.

  • Tuur Demeester on Decred Founder of Adamant Capital

    I’m skeptical of [hybrid POW/POS systems like Decred]. I’m open to it potentially working, but, to me, Bitcoin is really a mechanism to convert electricity into financial reliability. If you start to inject protocols with some energy and some voting . . . I struggle to see how that’s more efficient or better somehow or creates better reliability than what Bitcoin does.
