Cyphocracy – the easiest way to explain Decred governance

Decred has a unique governance system. We all know that. Our governance system allows on-chain hard fork voting (for consensus rule changes) and soon we will have a newly developed proposal system (for all kinds of proposals). This way, it is not only up to the miners and developers to determine the future of Decred. Users and stakeholders are also involved in the governance process. In recent discussions on social media we encountered many questions about Decred’s governance system. Most people immediately associate our governance system with a democracy. This connection is understandable because Decred introduced hard fork voting. However, our governance system is not democratic at all. Decred is… Read More

Successful Hard Fork governance on the Blockchain

Yesterday the first stakeholder approved Hard Fork went live on the Decred Blockchain. Community members, developers and holders voted in favour of a hard fork to replace the old stake difficulty algorithm, the mechanism that determines the PoS ticket price. The new stake difficulty algorithm will bring more stable ticket prices. Based on simulations, it is expected that the new prices will range between 50 – 70 DCR. This makes PoS mining buying much easier. Affordable tickets will be available during any interval, which means that there will be less competition on ticket fees – and thus a higher profit margin! What are the benefits of a Hard Fork governance… Read More
