Few of Bitcoin’s Lead developers have left the Bitcoin project and began building their separate cryptocurrency known as DECRED.

Decred aims to stop the problems Bitcoin is presently facing relating to project governance and development funding.

According to Bitcoin's developers, these cluster puts limitations on input in Bitcoin's governance,choosing choices that square measure favorable to their own interests solely, and customarily ignoring the developers' and project's best interests.

"The Bitcoin is controlled by a tiny low cluster of individuals agency decide completely what will and can't be modified," Jacob says during a announcement.

"This is partly attributable to an absence of mechanisms and pathways for funding development work directly from the community, and, as a result, Bitcoin development is funded by external entities that make conflicts of interest between the developers and also the representative power of the community that uses Bitcoin."

So, as to handle this issue, a number of the Bitcoin developers have joined hands with the manufacturers of the wide used BTCsuite and square measure currently building their own new digital currency known as DECRED.

Decred has an Airdrop scheduled for next month where they’ll be giving out 4 percent of the total Decred supply to all participants.
