Six Years of Decred - Part 1

2023 the year of encroachment - state of the market

2023 the year of encroachment - state of the market

Decred and the State of the market is brought to you by Exitus and PhoenixGreen.

In this episode, we’ll have a look back at what’s happened in 2023, the events that are bringing this year to a close and all the exciting developments in progress for 2024.

This year has been dominated by US and European regulators aiming to close down on and off ramps to the crypto world “Choke Point 2.0”. Interestingly, other areas of the world like South America seem to be ramping up their adoption and embracing this new technology. Will this leave citizens of western countries disadvantaged going forward?

Bittrex is closing down “Monday 4th December 2023”. Shortly after announcing this news, they disabled DCR withdrawals on the platform, sending the price on the platform below $5, creating a possible arbitrage opportunity for any trader brave enough.

This leaves Decred with just two main markets, Binance and DCRDEX. With Bitcoin BTC and Tether USDT being the main pairs. DCRDEX could be perfectly positioned based on the version 1 release, just weeks away. The New Polygon USDC pairs to rival USDT. And more privacy with the release of Firo pairs.

What are your thoughts on Polygon and the USDC pairs coming to DCRDEX?

Bitcoin has been a roller coster this year. It’s impressive that the price has gone up so high but using the chain has become a ridiculously bad experience which has also impacted platforms like DCRDEX that conduct permissionless on-chain transactions.

The Vanguard and the video proposals are just about to come up for renewal. What have been the positives, negatives and learning experiences for these proposals? What are we aiming to achieve in 2024?

  • New video content?
  • New people to deliver content?
  • Ads on Twitter?
  • In-video adds on tech content creator YT channels
  • What about the possibility of YouTube ads?
  • Hackathons?
  • Trading contests on DCRDEX?
  • Explore partnerships and integrations?
  • Rare sats on DCRDEX?

How are Decred blocks constructed - Q&A sessions

How are Decred blocks constructed - Q&A sessions

The process of building a Decred block is actually pretty interesting and is the area that gives the project its security and efficiency.


It’s important to note that Decred’s block construction is based on a hybrid mechanism of proof of work and proof of stake. A lot of the earlier blockchains rely on one mechanism or the other, but Decred takes advantage of the best bits of both of these mechanisms.


For example, Proof of stake is used for its coin holder voting and verification properties and proof of work is used for its block production properties. Both of which combine to amplify the security and cost of attacking the platform.

A New Work Paradigm - Working for the Decred DAO

A New Work Paradigm - Working for the Decred DAO

Crypto as an industry is over 14 years old. And as we know, one of its original premises was to be money. One aspect of being decentralised money is being able to earn it, preferably in a permissionless way.

This is an area that Decred excels in, and is one of the few cryptocurrencies to build a DAO structure as part of its core design. Decred is a layer 1 “Decentralised Autonomous Organisation”, that facilitates a “protocol to peer” work paradigm.

Scaling the blockchain- Why Decred chose to scale using the Lightning Network

Scaling the blockchain- Why Decred chose to scale using the Lightning Network

The scaling debate is an interesting topic that has got extremely heated over the last few months. With advocates for both sides putting forward valid points. Personally, I don’t think it’s a binary decision, “one way is not always better than the other”. In each example, there are trade-offs, and depending on your position, you will likely decide in favour of one or the other.


In this podcast, we’ll have a look at some of these arguments and identify why Decred has taken its scaling route.

What utility does Decred have? - Q&A Sessions

I’ve heard debate about Decred not offering anything new to the cryptocurrency space or not having a specific utility. Although to the outsider this may seem like the case, in fact, Decred offers so much utility that it’s often hard to describe in a punchy one-liner.


So let’s have a look at some of the utility that Decred has to offer.

The best cryptocurrencies to hold when exchanging for Decred - Q&A Sessions

This is an interesting question which is currently evolving. But the short answer is Bitcoin BTC. At the time of writing, pretty much every alternative coin has a BTC pair. This has typically been the coin that generates the highest liquidity in and out of a project like Decred.

But let's investigate some of our options and future prospects.

Decred and the State of the market is brought to you by Exitus and PhoenixGreen.

In this episode, we’ll be talking to @dreacot about the new cryptopower wallet, its exciting features, and what to expect going forward.

In previous episodes, we’ve discussed extensively about Decred needing to be available for mobile users, missed opportunities and the impact mobile products could have on the Decred project. The aim of this show is to take this conversation forward from the perspective of someone who building and developing in the crypto mobile space.  Along with this, it would also be great to discuss the challenges and ways in which we’ll be navigating them.

Removing Centralisation From Crypto

Removing Centralisation From Crypto

Crypto is over 14 years old and has seen its fair share of game theory and manipulation play out. Throughout this process, a few obvious centralising entities have fully established, organised and been allowed to thrive. Although early development could never have preemptively solved for each of these entities, it remains important to course correct at every opportunity.


Let’s dive into three of these centralising entities and the efforts Decred has gone to, not only to remove these middlemen, but also to not insert another one in their place.

Decred’s Blockchain Mining Revolution – Moving Blockchain Forward

Decred’s Blockchain Mining Revolution – Moving Blockchain Forward

Cryptocurrencies and digital internet money are extremely young and, as such, the ability to adapt to the changing environment will be critical. Principles, ideals, and theory that were once valid and seen as the immovable cornerstones of the space have mostly all been proven fragile when put to the test.


The idea that a piece of software or hardware will be as strong in the long term as it is today is a flagrant lie. Without the ability to formally change when needed, it will lead projects to be manipulated and exploited at the will of those who seek to game the system and profit.

Q&A Sessions - What are simple swaps?

Q&A Sessions - What are simple swaps?

Simple swaps are a great way of buying or selling small amounts of crypto, as they are super flexible, mobile-friendly, crazy simple to use and have a large array of coins that can be swapped between. The main downside with simple swaps is their custodial nature, meaning that a middleman takes control of your funds to complete the exchange between coins. You should be aware of this risk, as it could lead to loss of funds.

Simple Swaps are not the same as AtomicSwaps. AtomicSwaps, as in the case of DCRDEX, are completed fully peer to peer and do not require any middlemen or third-party services.

Q&A Sessions - How to buy your first Decred DCR

Q&A Sessions - How to buy your first Decred DCR

To kick off our commonly asked questions series, let’s start with the barrier to entry for every new person to crypto and those with minimal familiarity. How do I buy my first Decred?


This is difficult to answer because ideally, you’ll be using the DCRDEX P2P exchange and holding your coins in its self-custody wallets. But for new users, there are probably too many steps, which can be very daunting.


From recent surveys, it would also appear, the majority of new crypto users prefer to buy crypto using mobile exchanges and wallets. For this reason, if I was new to the space and wanted to buy my first Decred, I would likely use the Binance app. Then self-custody the coins in a Decred wallet. As a rule of thumb, mobile wallets are good for small holdings and the Decrediton desktop wallet is best for large, long-term holdings.

Decred - Bricking ASICs and P2P Social Media discussion feat. Dave Collins & Jake Yocom-Piatt

Decred and the state of the market is brought to you by @Exitus and @DecredSociety and aims to look at current social, economic, and crypto news and how it relates to Decred. This time, we’ll be talking about the proposed consensus upgrade and Bison Relay. In this episode, we’re joins be special guests Jake Yocom-Piatt and Dave Collins.


Just short of a year ago, Decred changed its subsidy split to reduce the miner reward, with the aim of removing the malicious miner behaviour witnessed on-chain. This action has gone a long way to addressing the issue, but although reduced, the pattern of dumping coins to prevent price realisation has continued.

For this reason, a new proposal is up for discussion and voting. Firstly to reduce the miner reward further and secondly to introduce a new mining algorithm.


Bison Relay is sculpting the landscape for the next generation of internet applications – including content delivery, social media and communication.


For those not in the loop, Decred is building a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO) around the premise of sound money. Decred has a fix maximum supply of 21 million, is governed by its coin holders and is self funded from its decentralised treasury. 

Through its decentralised, open sources and fee-less exchange (DCRDEX), Decred aims to be not only a project for peer to peer transactions but a platform for peer to peer exchange. An interoperability factor unparalleled by any other project.

DCRDEX 0.6 is coming

As the scope of the multi-wallet functionality expands, so does its target audience. For this reason, discussion has started around giving DCRDEX a name change to make the product more inclusive to the cryptocurrency space at large. One possibility that’s being considered, is to rename the client to BisonWallet, and the exchange network to BisonEx.


With so much development, it’s hard not to be enthusiastic about the project's future. After 7 years of active production, Decred continues to build some of the most innovative, permissionless, decentralised, non-custodial tech in the space.


DCRDEX, although built by Decred, doesn't require Decred to use the exchange. DCRDEX is a peer to peer decentralised exchange that aims to remove the middle man.

Built-in Payment System - Bison Relay

Built-in Payment System - Bison Relay

As said previously, Bison Relay has a built-in payment system that allows for peer to peer payments and transmission payments (gas fees). It may seem unusual that a sovereign internet / social media platform would charge usage fees to participate and interact, but this acts as both a privacy and a bad actor prevention mechanism.  

Fee and transaction types: 

  • Tip - This is when you receive a tip from someone
  • paytip - is the amount you’ve tipped someone
  • posts - total fees paid to list a user's news feed posts
  • Payfees - total fees paid for payload data
  • gc - total fees paid for messages sent to them in a group chat
  • sub - total fees paid for subscriptions
  • getinvoicereply - total fees paid for replying to requests for payment invoices
  • gettipinvoice - total fees paid to request an invoice for the purposes of tipping the user
  • pm - total fees paid for private messages with them (direct messages between you and them)
  • kx - total fees paid for key exchanges
  • ftpaychunk - total fees paid to retrieve file chunks
  • ftlist - total fees paid to get the list of available files
  • mediateid - total fees paid to mediate keys between your network
  • ftget - total fees paid for initiating file downloads
  • kxsearch - total fees paid to search for active key exchanges
  • ftlistreply - total fees paid to provide the user with your list of available files
  • sendTransitive - total fees paid to repost messages (akin to retweeting)

Decred is Money Evolved. By combining battle tested Proof-of-Work with an innovative take on Proof-of-Stake that places coin holders in charge of shaping the future, Decred is able to adapt to challenges and innovate at a rapid pace. You acquire influence in Decred by putting “skin in the game”. 

Decred’s security, privacy, scalability, and decentralized treasury empower stakeholders and provides them with the tools needed to enhance their financial sovereignty.

Decred and the Atomic Swap Revolution - DCRDEX Fundamentals

Decred and the Atomic Swap Revolution - DCRDEX Fundamentals

The concept of cross-chain atomic transfers was proposed in 2013 and has taken tremendous effort to realise the capabilities of this technology. One of the first breakthroughs came In 2017 when Decred conducted the first atomic swap between Decred DCR and Litecoin (LTC).  Decred has taken atomic swap technology from a single swap concept to a full trading experience with DCRDEX. 

These fulfilled goals have taken the crypto space by surprise, to the point, that most are still sceptical as to its success and legitimacy. But if you've watched this video series to this point you've seen for yourself how far the DCRDEX project has come.

For those not in the loop, Decred is building a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO) around the premise of sound money. Decred has a fix maximum supply of 21 million, is governed by its coin holders and is self funded from its decentralised treasury.

Through its decentralised, open sources and fee-less exchange (DCRDEX), Decred aims to be not only a project for peer to peer transactions but a platform for peer to peer exchange. An interoperability factor unparalleled by any other project.
