Decred (DCR), the cryptocurrency advanced by former Bitcoin developers, today announced that starting tonight, June 22 at 10 PM PDT, it will officially be supported by Exodus, the desktop multi-asset wallet app that allows users to conveniently secure, manage, and exchange blockchain assets.
With this partnership, Decred participants can enjoy complete and easy control of their currency. They also enjoy full privacy on all transactions, thanks to Exodus’ built-in integration with ShapeShift, an industry standard.
Jake Yocom-Piatt, Project Lead, Decred said:
“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.”
Daniel Castagnoli, Exodus Co-Founder, and Chief Creative Officer also commented:
“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 comes on the heels of 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 cryptocurrency users.
Surprise Launch Challenge
As a reward, 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 will be no different. The challenge can be found at exodus.io/decred and will be live the same time as the official integration of DCR on Exodus on June 22 at 10 PM PDT.
