Blockchain governance is a serious problem that plagues the distributed networks and has for the most part of the development stages of all decentralized applications been a steady discourse throughout the ecosystem.
Decred is a decentralized infrastructure built specifically to address the issues of governance within the blockchain ecosystem and also to provide a relatively easy transition protocol from one particular consensus to the other. What this means is that it ultimately has found a way of mitigating the dangers of hard forks which are the prominent fears of most blockchain products when an essential upgrade is imminent.
Decred investment has been around since 2016 and has quite an interesting price history. DCR has found a unique way of combining proof of work consensus mechanism with proof of stake algorithms to achieve a hybrid structure of achieving consensus. This way the platform is built on a robust system with buoyancy.
To buy Decred cryptocurrency, you will have to get some things set first:
1) A wallet in which to store your DCR once you have made the purchase. They have a custom wallet client, which can be downloaded from their website with a unique user interface that has been adapted to different operating systems such as Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.They also have a web-based wallet should the user decide not to download the software unto their PC.
Moreover, there are third-party wallet services that are compatible with the cryptocurrency, such as the Exodus wallet.
2) Check for available markets where the coin is being sold or traded. As of the time of writing, there are about 10 exchange markets with about 11 trade pairs with BTC, TRY, USDT, EUR and DOGE coins.
As for a technology, which has been in existence since 2016, one would expect more activity from more trade markets this might hopefully change as the coin continues to mature.
