Another special Decerd event is taking place next week (March 12) in San Francisco. Our project lead Jake Yocom-Piatt will be joined by Chris Burniske of Placeholder as well as Tim Byun of OKCoin to discuss the future of crypto. Space is limited so register now! www.eventbrite.com/e/decred-okcoin-present-the-next-10-years-crypto-boom-bust-or-buidl-tickets-57549671617

Decred & OKCoin Present "The Next 10 Years: Crypto Boom, Bust, or Buidl?" Tickets, Tue, Mar 12, 2019 at 5:30 PM | Eventbrite
About the Event Many are saying 2019 is the year of “buidl.” But is that true? Bitcoin has been around for a decade, but we still haven’t nailed the fundamentals that would underlie real-world applications at scale and allow them to stand the test of time. Without confidence in security, no crypto can ever serve as a store of value, let alone evolve to become a medium of exchange or unit of account. Only once blockchains have the ability to adapt will they provide solid protection against value-loss events like chain splits and hard forks — giving them the resilience they need to endure in the long-term. Enter Decred — a community-directed digital currency designed to deliver a truly decentralized alternative to traditional money. Community members own and operate the system, make the rules, and determine the direction of the project. The result is a secure and adaptable crypto that Murad Mahmudov — one of the most respected bitcoin maximalists — believes could be one of the three cryptocurrencies that stand the test of time.   As part of its mission to make crypto accesible around the world, OKCoin is excited to host Decred to the SF analyst and investor community. Please join us for a chat with OKCoin CEO Tim Byun, Decred founder Jake Yocom-Piatt, prominent crypto VC Chris Burniske of Placeholder VC, and researcher Alex Evans of Placeholder VC. You'll learn how to value cryptocurrencies and invest in the crypto economy, why Decred's killer feature of good governance makes it a superior store of value, what the future holds for crypto, and how OKCoin aims to make crypto accessible to all. –– All information shared in the event is for reference only and should not be construed as investment advice. –– Agenda 5:30-6:00 PM - Networking 6:00-6:10 PM - Welcome and introductions by OKCoin CEO Tim Byun 6:10-6:30 PM - Decred overview by founder Jake Yocom-Piatt 6:30-6:50 PM - Fireside chat with Placeholder VC partner Chris Burniske and crypto-economics analyst Alex Evans on why they invested in Decred and what the future holds for crypto.   6:50-7:00 PM - Q&A from the audience 7:00-8:30 PM - Networking and drinks About the Speakers Tim Byun is CEO of OKCoin and possesses decades of experience in Risk and Compliance. Prior to joining the OK Group two years ago, Tim served as BitPay's Chief Compliance Officer for two years and Visa's AML Officer for five years. He started his career as a field bank examiner at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and then worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco for a total of 13 years.  Jake Yocom-Piatt is Project Lead for Decred, and a cryptocurrency pioneer who has been using, funding and directing the creation of open-source software for 10+ years. Prior to Decred, Jake funded and oversaw the creation of btcsuite, an alternative full-node Bitcoin implementation written in go, whose source code has been used in several notable projects: e.g. Lightning Network (lnd), Ethereum, and Factom. Chris Burniske is a partner at Placeholder, a New York venture firm that invests in decentralized information networks. Prior to Placeholder, he co-authored, Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor’s Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond, and spearheaded ARK Invest’s crypto efforts, including its 2015 bitcoin investment. His commentary has been featured on national media outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Financial Times, and Bloomberg. Twitter @cburniske. Alex Evans is a researcher at Placeholder where he conducts crypto-economic research and supports portfolio teams and investment due diligence. Alex joined Placeholder from Lowe’s Ventures, the venture capital arm of Lowe’s. He holds a degree in Economics from the University of Virginia. We invite you to join us at OKCoin, 150 Spear St, Level 17, San Francisco, CA 94105 at 5:30 PM About Decred Decred is a community-directed digital currency designed to be a superior store of value for generations to come.

In case you missed it, we are pleased to share that Ledger's Nano S and Blue models are now compatible with Decred! Ledger has integrated Decred to the Ledger Live software as its first native integration since launch. www.ledger.fr/2018/12/11/ledger-nano-s-ledger-blue-and-ledger-live-now-support-decred-transactions/

Ledger Nano S, Ledger Blue, and Ledger Live Now Support Decred Transactions - Ledger
Ledger, a global leader in security and infrastructure solutions for cryptocurrencies and blockchain applications, today announced the integration of Decred, onto Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue hardware devices. Through this integration, Decred transactions will also be supported on Ledger Live, Ledger’s all-in-one software application. The Decred unification marks the first native integration into Ledger Live since launching the app in summer 2018. Decred users will be able to manage their crypto assets in Ledger Live and validate transactions on their devices as part of the security protocol. “We’re excited to be working with Decred on the Ledger Live native integration pilot,” said Eric Larchevêque, CEO at Ledger. “This is a major first step towards accelerating our efforts to develop native coin support for all major crypto in 2019.” The Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue hardware wallets enable users to protect their private keys using a state-of-the-art secure element, similar to the technology safeguarding credit cards and passports. The Ledger hardware wallets isolate user’s private keys from the internet, but also from the computer to which they are connected, providing an unmatched layer of security against hackers.

Decred x BlueYard Berlin Meetup: Currencies, core-chains & the future of blockchain governance and development Tickets, Wed 18 Jul 2018 at 18:30 | Eventbrite
Decred is an autonomous digital currency with built in on-chain governance, running on a hybrid Proof-of-Stake and Proof-of-Work architecture. Read more about our investment thesis here.  We are happy to be able to help Decred with building their community of developers and both PoW and PoS miners across the world — so we are excited to host the first Decred meetup in Berlin, with folks from all across Europe. Jonathan Zeppettini will join us to talk about: What Decred is and how it is different from other crypto currencies How Decred will evolve in the future How to get involved; be it through developing, mining or participating in the governance process An interesting aspect of Decred is that a part of the block reward is set aside to fund the development of Decred. In the future all spending out of this pool will be governed by Decred’s stakeholders. We will dive deeper into the specific mechanics of Decred’s system and also chat generally about why developer incentivization and project governance are important properties by featuring a conversation between JZ and Ele from oscoin (moving the open source ecosystem onto the blockchain). Roughly our agenda for the evening will look like this: 6:30pm — 7:00pm: doors open + pizza and drinks 7:00pm — 7:30pm: JZ’s talk about Decred + Q&A 7:30pm — 8:00pm: conversation between Ele and JZ on developer incentivization and project governance 8:00pm — 8:15pm: open Q&A 8:15pm — 9:30pm: mingle with more pizza and drinks We look forward to seeing you!
