DECENT is a blockchain-based content distribution platform. The project first started in 2015 with the team behind the project presenting the ambitious goal of liberating the world of media, by empowering both content creators and consumers alike. But how is the DECENT platform able to do all of this? First of all, like all blockchain technologies, the platform will be decentralized, meaning anyone can publish content without having to go through third parties.
DECENT is an independent platform, owned and controlled only by its community and will never be affiliated with any economic, media or political party. This allows for a platform without censorship, where content creators have their profits maximized. It also allows users to create a variety of applications on an open-source protocol, ranging from blogs, music, streaming, e-book publishing, software sales, indie game development, among others.
Now that you know a little about what DECENT is and what it does, you might be curious to try it out. Although the project hasn’t been officially launched yet, the first Testnethere! The mainnet, a fully functioning version of DECENT is scheduled to launch in June of 2017.
