Decred is an autonomous open-source cryptocurrency, strongly focused on governance. On June 2017 Decred became the first crypto to project a change to its protocol through a binding on-chain vote. Since then all changes to the Decred network are discussed with the community and settled with a consensus vote. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to contribute in the Decred project.
Currently, there's a circulating supply of 8,100,760 DCR out of 21,000,000 coins.

Decred understands that the community support and contributions are key components to their project's success. I love the idea of a coin based on a governance model; it is what Bitcoin originally wanted to be and it is what we need: a balance of power between the miners and the stakers. They all matter. Everyone can have influence and if you got a great idea to make Decred better you will be heard, and now even more people will have a vote if the team lowers the bar for smaller investors by splitting the tickets. I hold DCR (not enough to get a ticket, though) and I believe this project is solid and will grow.
