Why is privacy important to your project team? https://blog.decred.org/2019/08/21/Surveying-the-Privacy-Landscape/ https://medium.com/decred/decred-privacy-taking-the-long-road-62d218223db6
What makes your project stand out above other projects?
Decred’s privacy implementation is simple, iterative, and audit-able. The three articles will communicate that in more depth.
What do you have in the works for future development?
Decred is working on a DEX https://blog.decred.org/2018/06/05/A-New-Kind-of-DEX/ https://github.com/decred/dcrdex
The DEX is designed to be fair, permissionless and anti-rent seeking.
Decred is also working on Lightning Network. It’s the only non btccore project to accomplish this. https://github.com/decred/dcrlnd It’s also working on ticket splitting via LN https://blog.decred.org/2019/11/11/LN-Multi-Owner-Tickets/
Decred continues to work on privacy, likely will implement Bulletproofs in the future.
It’s also working on mutli-sig Schnorr signatures
Decred is also working to fully decentralize its treasury, which would make it the most viable DAO because it controls the base layer. https://proposals.decred.org/proposals/c96290a2478d0a1916284438ea2c59a1215fe768a87648d04d45f6b7ecb82c3f
What is the path to mass adoption of your project?
The path to mass adoption of Decred likely follows that of Bitcoin. It is designed to be a superior store of value first. It’s more secure, adaptable, and sustainably funded. As a MoE, LN and mobile wallets will enable Decred to be used for payments, and LN will be interoperable with BTC & LTC.
