Projects

All projects listed on this page are currently in active development. All projects are open source with their source code available on GitHub. New contributors are welcome to contribute to any of these projects.


dcrd

dcrd is a full node implementation of Decred written in Go (golang).

It acts as a fully-validating chain daemon for the Decred cryptocurrency. dcrd maintains the entire past transactional ledger of Decred and allows relaying of transactions to other Decred nodes around the world. The software was originally forked from btcd, which is a bitcoin full node implementation that is still under active development.


dcrwallet

dcrwallet is the daemon that handles Decred wallet functionality for a single user. It tracks balances across addresses, allows stakeholders to participate in Proof-of-Stake voting, and manages all of your accounts, addresses, and transactions.


dcrctl

dcrctl is a command-line client for interacting with the JSON-RPC servers of dcrd and dcrwallet.

dcrctl is not a daemon like dcrd or dcrwallet, it is an interactive tool which calls the requested RPC method, prints the response and then terminates. It is the primary method for CLI users to interact with their personal node and wallet.


decrediton

decrediton is a cross-platform GUI wallet for Decred built with Electron. It operates by communicating with dcrd and dcrwallet over RPC. It also integrates with Politeia to allow ticket holders to vote on Proposals.


Lightning Network

Decred’s Lightning Network implementation (dcrlnd) is based on the lnd implementation for Bitcoin, and is under active development. lightning-faucet provides a testnet service similar to traditional cryptocurrency faucets, but rather than sending Decred to the user via an on-chain transaction, it will open a payment channel with the user. lightning-onion is a Decred implementation of the onion routing protocol used by dcrlnd.


dcrdata

dcrdata is a Decred block explorer, implemented from scratch by the Decred project.


atomicswap

The atomicswap repository contains utilities to manually perform cross-chain atomic swaps between various supported pairs of cryptocurrencies.


Politeia

Politeia is Decred’s solution for decentralized governance. decred/politeia implements a time-stamped and versioned data store based on git, and this is used as the back-end for Politeia. The front-end is implemented in decred/politeiagui and decred/snew-classic-ui.


dcrtime

dcrtime is a blockchain based timestamping service, inspired by the work of Peter Todd’s OpenTimestamps. dcrtime allows a nearly unlimited number of hashes to be timestamped onchain with the inclusion of a single Merkle root in a transaction.

dcrtimegui implements a front-end for dcrtime, enabling files to be timestamped through a web-browser.


Mobile Wallets

Native wallets for both iOS and Android.


dcrstakepool

dcrstakepool is the reference implementation for a Decred Voting Service Provider (VSP). It consists of two major components: a back-end voting daemon which remains online 24/7 and votes on behalf of users, and a front-end website which allows users to register and manage their accounts.


dcrpool

dcrpool is a lightweight Proof-of-Work (PoW) mining pool which operates without collecting any personal information from its users.


TinyDecred

A Python 3 Decred toolkit. The modules in TinyDecred can be used to integrate Decred into Python projects. Everything needed to create wallets to send and receive DCR.


Documentation

Decred has two sources of documentation. dcrdocs is user documentation, focused on explaining Decred at a high level and how to use the software. dcrdevdocs is developer documentation, written to explain the internal workings of Decred at a lower level.


Privacy

Privacy in Decred is implemented using CoinShuffle++. The cspp repository contains both the client and the server implementations.


Decentralized Exchange (DEx)

Decred stakeholders voted to approve funding to develop a new kind of decentralized cryptocurrency exchange.
