Politeia Platform Challenge

Decred’s Politeia, a proposal system that is part of Decred’s governance system, has a vast amount of potential uses. As such, Decred can only reasonably explore a few of these use cases on their own.

The Politeia Platform Challenge is a competition designed to discover alternate uses for the Politeia codebase. Competitors will use Politeia source code to address alternate use cases besides a public proposal system and then demonstrate how they work. Decred will choose the best of these on Friday, December 1st at The North Door in Austin, TX, US. The event starts at 8 PM CST and ends at 1 AM CST and is free to attend. Drinks and food will be available for purchase.....

The Obelisk DCR1, the First Decred (DCR) ASIC Miner looks very interesting to me. I'm really thinking hard about that to order one at the pre-order batch. Maybe this can be very profitable.

Why do you think it will be profitable? Since the D3 arrived, the difficulty of Dash just multiplied enormously.  In the first few days, the payback period was about 18 days, after 6 weeks, it is 500 days due to the increased difficulty.
Is there any reason it will be different with Decred ASIC?

I think if you get one asic miner from the first batch your reward will be a very good, because you get a lot of coins. And with the increasing price what i think, you will make good money.

So we can hurry up and mine the last of the pow coins.  Awesome gonna be the opposite of sia releasing asics cause there is a limit on pow Decred.  Nice work we will see 100+ soon
When pow ends ?

At 2500 you would be safer buying decred at 29 dollars.  You can buy more NOW than you will ever mine with that.  Once it comes out.  Its pretty clear that buying now is your best bet.

There is a reason they say in bold DYOR.  If you do get one of these before they are all mined, assuming test phase doesnt mine em all.  You will most likley have been way better off buying decred.

Decred's hybrid mining was implemented in a way that centralization isn't possible.

Yes the miners don't have the "power" to mine the chain they favor due to the voting mechanism BUT mining itself with ASICs will be centalized none the less.

You seem to greatly misunderstand this concept.


Once again where is Politeia in this case Huh

The Obelisk DCR1 Asic miner for Decred looks very interesting. This will also reflect the price of this coin like the D3 did it for Dash.

There are very much exchanges to buy some Decred out there. I prefer Bittrex and Poloniex for buying Decred, but you can also use all of these exchanges. You can also go to https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/decred/#markets for a list of exchanges.

Decred Will Receive Lightning Network Upgrade by Late November

"Lightning Network technology will introduce a completely new era for cryptocurrency in general. Most people associate this technology with Bitcoin, although Litecoin will have its own version of the Lightning Network as well. As it turns out, Decred’s developers have been working on a similar solution. In fact, any cryptocurrency with SegWit activated on the mainnet can benefit from this technology.

DECRED’S LIGHTNING NETWORK IS COMING SOON

There have been multiple discussions regarding the Lightning Network over the past year. In virtually every case, these discussions have pertained to Bitcoin’s implementation of LN in the future. In order to bring this technology to Bitcoin users, we first needed Segregated Witness to properly activate. That has been a monumental task, as most people are well aware. However, things are progressing nicely in this regard, even though there remains a lot of work to be done in the coming months.

Bitcoin is not the only cryptocurrency to have activated Segregated Witness over the past few months, though. In fact, the world’s leading cryptocurrency was pretty late to the party in that regard. Litecoin activated SegWit well ahead of Bitcoin, which allowed the former’s developers to create their own version of the Lightning Network. Dubbed aptly the Litening Network, it will allow for micropayments with Litecoin in the near future. It will be interesting to see how different cryptocurrencies “compete” in this regard over the next few years.

It now turns out there is a Lightning Network in development by Decred as well. Even though most people may have ignored this altcoin over the past few months, the currency is quickly making a name for itself. That’s not only because it can be merge-mined with popular altcoins, but also due to its own activation of Segregated Witness. Moreover, Decred’s developers have been working together with the Litecoin team on cross-chain atomic swaps. It is this latter development which will open up a lot of new and exciting doors in the future.

According to a recent Reddit thread, the Decred Lightning Network should be coming to market at the end of this month. That is rather ambitious, although not impossible to achieve by any means. Some of the features were developed on the Decred network with the latest Thunderstruck update, which involved some changes to the consensus mechanism. More specifically, a new vote ID was introduced, which can be set up through the main wallet or a stake pool’s website accordingly.

It is evident that Lightning Network technology is of great importance to the cryptocurrency industry as a whole. Not only will it introduce micropayments for popular currencies, but it will also show the world that instant payments with cryptocurrency are a very real thing. Up until now, even the most popular cryptocurrencies suffer from confirmation delays now and then. Those currencies with much faster block times haven’t succeeded in gaining major traction yet. More competition in the crypto world can only be seen as a good thing, as Bitcoin isn’t perfect by any means.

It will be interesting to see how all these Lightning Networks perform. The developments themselves are pretty interesting to keep an eye on. Once we have multiple LN-capable currencies out there, interoperability becomes the next logical step. The future is looking very bright for cryptocurrencies, especially once political shenanigans are put aside."

Ya, this was great news for DCR! With the recent pump in btc...I'm considering how many I should preorder (2-5 range). Considering various scenarios for difficulty come june/july time, profitability for these look really good. Thoughts?

Does Exodus have a fee for using it? I know it has high fees for trading but do not know if there is a fee for storing cryptocurrencies in there.
