Hi, it stated that DECENT is based on modified bittorrent protocol.

Is there a connection/relation between DECENT and Ethereum? Maybe something like ethereum platform is used to creating DECENT platform.

Is DECENT POS mining open for everyone with wallet, or just for publishers?

Just wanted to clarify.


DECENT Data Distribution Layer is currently based on modified Bittorrent protocol. We are going to integrate various data distribution protocols in one of our milestones depicted in our DECENT Development  Plan.

Ethereum is a Turing complete smart contracts programming platform.
DECENT is a decentralised content distribution platform coming with predefined smart contracts and APIs.

DECENT is not using Ethereum, as this choice could introduce unnecessary bottlenecks in the system. We are focusing on real world applications with millions of users that would benefit from blockchain technologies, such as decentralised Netflix, Amazon, Youtube, Steam, iTunes and much more.

Check out DECENT Video for more details.

DECENT uses a PoC - Proof of Custody algorithm further described in DECENT Whitepaper and DECENT Yellowpaper where this is described more in detail.

As DECENT Network is an open protocol, there are literally no limits of its use.



Thank you for clarification. Will be supporting this project. Keep up the good works!

I understand the software is not ready yet, but are there going to be any limits of transactions per second ?
I think bitcoin has around 7 tr/s, other currencies state over 100/s, so what about DECENT ?

We are planning to be much, much over this number. Visa and Mastercard currently need to process a few thousands of transactions per second. Try to imagine that they are replaced by Bitcoin. This would literally cause btc to crash, as it can process only ~7 tps. It's a similar case with Ethereum...

More details about the dev progress and our tps numbers will come out soon.

Hey where do we submit our blog url if we publish an article about decent's ICO?
Would like to acquire some bounties for this as well. My articles are going to be distributed as well to the bitcoin related facebook groups and on reddit as well.

There is no blog bounty.

My apologies if this has already been addressed, but after several reads of the distribution shown on the first page of this announcement, I remain confused. Any help answering the questions in the image below is appreciated.

You are right, something about the coin issuance is a bit confusing.

Quoting OP: DCT sold in the September Software sale will be 70% of the total DCT distributed. Part of this will be also pre-mine funds that will be distributed in following way [...]

"This" in "Part of this" is an anaphor referring back to the predicate phrase "70% of the total DCT distributed", to be grammatically correct. I think the OP editor meant it to refer to the prepositional phrase subpart "total DCT distributed". This error is a case of unclear pronoun reference (ungrammatical in formal English) and is the reason why people are so confused, and rightly so.

The phrase "Part of this" would be better replaced by something like "The remaining 30%". No need to add the phrase "will be also premine funds that" as it is totally redundant here. Everyone knows the 70% will be a premine, much as they do the 30% since neither PoS nor PoW was mentioned anywhere on the OP. My 2 DCT.

According to Tibor Tarábek (founder of subsidiary of Microsoft Corp. in Slovakia) DECENT has the potential to become "the next big thing within data distribution processes worldwide.”

After the launch of the final release of DECENT Network, tokens will be issued according to the Software Sale results. DCT sold in the September Software sale will be 70% of the total DCT distributed. Part of this will be also pre-mine funds that will be distributed in following way:

10% for the DECENT Foundation
2% for the Investment Fund
1,000,000 DCT for DECENT Bounty program
3,000,000 DCT for Pre-software marketing

=> the overall amount of DCT sold during the Software Sale + the described funds for Bounties etc. represent 70% of the total amount of DCT that will be issued. According to this number, the remaining 30% will be allocated to mining rewards (DECENT uses a PoC - Proof of Custody algorithm)

This part clarifies everything. Thanks. It might be helpful to put it on OP to take away doubts and confusion.

With the DECENT token I will not become a stock owner of DECENT. I am becoming an early customer of DECENT? What should be my motivation of that? Producing or consuming content later?

So who are the (stock) owners of DECENT company?

For most of my spare money, I am an investor. For the rest of my spare money, I am a speculator. What's in for me?

A little ironic that the major discussions around creating a decentralized content distribution network are happening behind a closed-platform-single-corporate-control system of Slack.

The wallet will be released after the ICO and the token distribution should come up around 1st quarter of 2017 so it should be around that period that the wallet will be ready for use
