As part of our DECRED TECHNOLOGY STACK series this month we're looking at dcrd and the what it does. Blockchain technology is perhaps one of the most important innovations of the century. It's a complex fusion of tools and protocols like networking, cryptography, privacy, security, ownership, trustless communication, governance, etc. A true blockchain is permissionless, which means anyone can use the blockchain without asking permission.

However, people who use blockchains are inherently agreeing to the rules that the blockchain runs on. Those rules are (hopefully) established by consensus. Each of those consensus rules actually has to be implemented into software, which is what enforces the rules. As such, it's essential to delve into the software that's enabling and enforcing the rules on a blockchain for everyone's benefit.
