Company Description

Bitcoin is the first digital currency based on blockchain. It solved the double-spending problem and enabled peer-to-peer transactions on a large scale. Bitcoin was designed to work as a trustless digital currency that would function without government oversight or a central bank.
Bitcoin was developed by Satoshi Nakamoto, whose identity has never been confirmed and has become the subject of great intrigue. Bitcoin builds upon on other cryptographic and digital currency projects that came before it, but its use of blockchain made it more viable. Nakamoto originally released his white paper and open-source software on a cryptography forum. He mined the first block of the Bitcoin chain, called the genesis block in January 2009.
Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. One of the core innovations of Bitcoin, is its consensus algorithm, which creates an incentive system that rewards miners for confirming transactions.
Hal Finney, who developed the first reusable proof-of-work system (RPOW), several years before, was the first Bitcoin adopter and received the first bitcoin transaction ever recorded on its blockchain.

Decred (DCR) is a decentralized currency with an emphasis on community based governance. Decred is led by several early adopters of Bitcoin and is designed to implement many of the goals of early Bitcoin idealists. Decred is highly focused on community contribution and governance. Users that contribute to the community can receive compensation for their work and anybody can submit a proposal ti make an improvement to the platform.
Decred has a hybrid Proof-of-Activity (PAC) consensus algorithm that combines the mining of Proof-of-Work (PoW) with the stake verifying model of Proof-of-Stake (PoS). It's designed to incentivize the community to participate and to reward both miners and stake verifiers. When DCR is mined, PoW miners receives 60% of the coins, PoS voters receive 30%, and 10% goes towards the development of the Decred platform.
