    Does Decred have nodes? And if so, where do I sign up?

    When you run the wallet, you can buy 'tickets' for voting that gather new decred along with the typical blockchain miners.. that's Proof-Of-Stake and Proof-Of-Work systems respectively.

    Not sure if either the mining software or the wallet would be referred to a a node though.

    Thank you for input ! So if I buy tickets? Do I have to vote? What does voting accomplish aside from providing a yes or no?

    the default is set to 'abstain' which still counts as a vote.. it can take about a month for it to do what it needs to do, whereby the funds then get returned to you (an hopefully a bit bigger).. They cost a lot though 80+decreds and it's best to use a 'pool' which is a 3d-party site that many other tickets join so as to even out the profits an prevent putting a stake in an getting nothing but the stake back.

    The proposal creation an adoption part is still in the making (politeia based) so there aren't many proposals yet, but that will change and i expect important ones are still possible through this forum.

    In competing crypto's with lesser security the proposal areas are where loads of people often try an get crypto for services, like marketing or software development, which looks good but with lack in security, censorship from outside parties will likely guide them into obsoleteness.

    (someone correct me if i'm wrong)

    To answer my own question the answer is YES lol
