    No good. DCR does 14 rounds.

    There is no existing mining software that will work with Decred without modifications.

    The closest ones that I know of are the NEOS one you linked and SaffronCoin which are both 14 round blake256, however Decred has a different header structure than any existing coin. That means the existing software simply won't work without being modified to understand the different header structure.

    Ah well I'm going to dive into the source of this anyways to try and learn a bit about how these things operate. My hope is within the year I'll be able to contribute in some way to these types of initiatives specifically for Decred.

    Whatever I want.
    That's the best way to learn. If you're reasonably intelligent and stick with it, I wager you'll be contributing inside 6 months.

    The cgminer with decred blake256 algo "-a decred" module would suffice? Or is more needed for it to fly?
