Decred is a project that strives to solve blockchain governance. It has a consensus voting model which empowers stakeholders and allows for the seamless transition from one set of rules to another. It has decentralized decision-making and self-funding which should enable the project to build a robust, evolving digital currency without the third party influence.

At the moment the Decred project representatives are touring across Netherlands with aim to introduce people to the blockchain project. Decred has already held meetups in Den Haag and Utrecht. The next one is scheduled to occur on February 15 in Amsterdam.
