Decred (DCR), the community run and funded cryptocurrency designed Bitcoin developers, has announced that it is supported by Exodus, the desktop multi-asset wallet app which allows users to secure, manage, and exchange blockchain assets. With this partnership, Decred participants can retain complete control of their currency and enjoy full privacy on all transactions, thanks to Exodus’ built-in integration with ShapeShift.
Jake Yocom-Piatt, Project Lead at Decred, remarked: “We are excited to offer this extension of the DCR network. Exodus gives our users a virtual wallet that is both user-friendly and secure. Empowering users to manage blockchain assets in a simple, one-click manner is the practical, down-to-earth use-case that is essential for the long-term growth of this industry. We couldn’t be happier with this deployment.”
Exodus Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Daniel Castagnoli explained: “Written into the Decred project ethos are principles dedicated to free and open-source software, multi-stakeholder inclusivity, and incremental improvement of privacy and security. With a dev team that has been involved in this industry since its inception, Decred is one of the most innovative digital currencies available today. Making our platform compatible with their offering is key to reaching the broadest community of users who believe in taking control of their financial future—without banks, brokers, or institutional oversight.”
The news of this integration follows Decred’s launch of decentralized voting for the blockchain. It also comes as Exodus has implemented confirmation tracking and other new features to make its wallet more user-friendly and secure to the broadest range of users.
As a bonus, the two projects have collaborated to launch a cryptographic challenge with USD $5K prize in $DCR. Decred has a history of creating cryptographic challenges with bountiful prizes, and this event has already been launched. The Exodus and Decred software are available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
