Company Description

Ethereum is a blockchain-based computing platform and operating system whose core innovation is enabling smart contracts. Ethereum's smart contract functionality, and versatile scripting language, have made it the most popular network for creating decentralized applications. What makes Ethereum different from Bitcoin is that its primary purpose is to serve as a general purpose blockchain for creating DApps, and not as a payment network. Ethereum was created by Vitalik Buterin. It was launched in July 2015 and has become one of the most important blockchain platforms in the industry. Ether is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain and can can be used as a transfer of value, as well as a form of compensation for mining. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) executes scripts using a network of public nodes. "Gas" is used as an internal transaction pricing mechanism that decides how resources are used on the network.

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.
