The Daily Chain Podcast Episode 5: Luke Powell – Decred Lead Developer
Welcome to the fifth episode of The Daily Chain Podcast, hosted by Mark Sugden, where we talk to prominent and key figures in the cryptocurrency space covering a broad range of topics.
About Luke Powell
Luke Powell is one of the lead developers and has been working largely on Politea for the last two years. In the episode we discuss the project at a high level, understand how the community gets involved, and how Decred can possibly act as a hedge against Bitcoins possible failure due to varying governance systems.
Decred (DCR) is an open-source, Bitcoin fork that places emphasis on development funding, on-chain governance, and consensus mechanisms.
Launched in Feb 2016 by the Bitcoin developers behind btcsuite (an alternative full-node Bitcoin implementation written in Go (golang), Decred successfully orchestrated an on-chain user-activated consensus vote, which is emblematic of the project’s emphasis on community-driven stakeholder governance. Other features of the project include a hybrid proof-of-work (PoW) proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus voting system, a public proposal platform, smart contracts, cross-chain atomic swaps, and cross-platform wallets.
