Quote:Decred is an open and progressive cryptocurrency with a system of community-based governance integrated into its blockchain.

The fusion of technology, community, and governance the Decred way means development is self-funding and remains sustainable.

What does everyone think about it so far? It is built by ex-developers of the Bitcoin currency and it has a good meaning and purpose behind it. I think it'll become a pretty nice cryptocurrency.

What's the benefit to using decred over btc?

There's a multitude of cryptocurrencies out there, and I question why anyone would use them over something that's already popular and works near perfectly.

Too much cryptocurrency.. If I must have to chose, I prefer btc since it already has multiple support from many online shopping sites.

I don't see the point in swapping over to something so similar.

I personally don't think that Bitcoin is a very viable long term option. The community continues to whine amongst themselves and I don't see any clear direction for the currency to go in, unless block sizes are increased significantly, in which case, it'll go towards centralisation.

Good luck using that as a payment option, unless some places have already begun incorporating it.

See, this is the problem with competing currencies. It's even worse with cryptocurrencies however, as to my knowledge there's no easy way to transfer from one such currency to another.

Me, I think I'll stick with the almighty dollar.
