Introduction to Decred

Decred is a cryptocurrency designed for P2P payments in a similar vein as Bitcoin, albeit with a focus on governance through a hybrid PoW/PoS consensus architecture.

Decred emphasizes governance input for all stakeholders through an on-chain voting and public proposal system; it was the first blockchain to implement an on-chain, token holder-approved hard fork.
