Introducing Dcrpool

Decred’s high network security is a result of its hybrid Proof-of-Work (“PoW”) and Proof-of-Stake (“PoS”) mining system. It depends on how decentralized Decred’s PoW and PoS actors are. With over 20 Voting Service Providers ("VSP”) and open-source VSP software, the PoS aspect of the network is currently the most decentralized.
