The numbers! The whole crypto scene smells like scam and get rich quick

I largely agree with @Placebo81 - any crypto conference (outside of a few grassroots types) I’ve been too, most of the groups I’m in, etc... are largely cesspools (at least last 6/7 years). That doesn’t mean there are not earnest folks trying to improve our shared existence on this planet through a fundamentally better financial record keeping system - and one thing I really liked about Decred was the higher percentage of those types being involved.

Oh, just the general “crypto scene seems like a scam” sentiment - I don’t completely agree but partly 🤷‍♂️

So emo-public squirming and cringe-whining about ur overexposure to a💼 in crypto.. on full display for community.. is constructive ?

Hello I am new to this project been around crypto space for about 1 year... this project got my attention for its only 21million supply... I want to learn more about this project before I invest..can anybody guide me to the right source..thanks in advance.

Just being honest, from my perspective as a person that helps run /r/cryptocurrency, you're in a small minority

The project mission is to develop technology for the public benefit, with a primary focus on cryptocurrency technology https://docs.decred.org/governance/decred-constitution/

Those ASICs will switch back on as soon as power costs make it profitable

Just seems to be the only* glaring downside/criticism - from a fundamental standpoint. Long term - I can get behind the narrative, Anshaw u and Nino were alluding to on podcast regarding DEX contributing utility to cryptocurrency network as a whole but meanwhile.. waves 🌊 DEX and even Kyber network DEX built on top of ETH are capturing that utility. If there isn’t utility and innovation onboarding new users and use cases.. (I understand u have to be patient and wait for this adoption) but while that’s a speculative, nascent product currently for arguments sake.. the #’s regarding hashrate/network security are declining📉As these figures decline - the PoS amount of DCR in circulation further declines as well.. so I’m perplexed on the supply constraint or squeeze on the open market ? If miners aren’t mining and selling.. and indeed mining and staking.. would expect % of PoS to 📈..

From LMC PR 🚨Hi everyone, we've been included in an article on Finance Magnates about the centralization of Bitcoin:https://www.financemagnates.com/cryptocurrency/news/does-china-control-bitcoin-and-ethereum/Several comments from jy-p have been included, where he talks about the limitations of PoW systems and explains why consensus models like Pos and Pos/Pow are better.The article closes with:“PoW is meritocratic and irreversible,” he argued. “PoS is feudal and reversible. If you combine the two (PoW/PoS) you get a system that is part feudal, part meritocratic and irreversible. When PoW launch with Bitcoin, it was fairer than anything else out there, but that was quickly gamed. Now PoW is the least fair, followed by PoS, followed by hybrid PoW-PoS models.”

A friend of mine let me invest some of his net worth in crypto. Money he would waste on never lasting stuff anyway. Created a portfolio with only dcr and btc. He is not a tech person. It's a privilege to have friends with so much trust. Created a paper wallet from my santa design. A significant amount of dcr has been taken away from the streets. He will hold the decred forever. Cause he is that guy that invest in all kinds of stuff. Sweet dreams my friends. Future is bright for us.

I agree that fresh perspectives are very much needed. the echo chamber effect is very strong in crypto: BTC maximalists are an example of that

also other crypto communities have examples of their culture getting "toxic" and losing touch with reality

Also this technical brief https://decred.org/dtb001.pdf

If you added 25 pages of garbage fluff to this you would have a top notch “crypto white paper” - this is just the good stuff.

but at the same time, crypto could prove that it is an actual hedge to the financial system and pump

Most crypto in the streets is BTC right now, that's why the DEX will improve access to DCR for those who want to avoid KYC

Paul Shore
Do Atomic Swaps on changelly require kyc?

You need to make an account but (without having checked) there's no KYC needed. It might have changed since some changes in EU regulations.When you use the Coinomi-Wallet, that has Changelly integrated, you don't even need an account.Of course if you shovel a couple 100k USD in Crypto through Changelly they might freeze it and ask for the origin of the money.Buying with Fiat is easiest on Bitladon. Weekly limit of 100€ without KYC, but be aware that there is a "cooldown-phase" of 72 hours after your first buy, before you can transfer the coins out.But Bitladon is a legit dutch company.

What assets or cryptos do you guys think will be available on the DEX at release?

Hi, newer DeCred holder. How would DeCred rank in terms of “privacy” capabilities against the more popular privacy centered crypto currencies...?IF there was a flight to crypto in the future, and privacy became ones main/primary concern... what are the likely choices and how does DeCred rank against them? If there is any literature on this please share. Tag me in reply. Thank you/
