    @LastNinja so that means that Decred cannot be "bitcoin 2.0" since it's still so dependent on Bitcoin as all others crypto currencies.

    I don't think Decred wants to be "Bitcoin 2.0" and inherit all its flaws :cool:

    It doesn't really depend on Bitcoin or BTC's value in fiat. It's just that Bitcoin has already exchanges with BTC-fiat pairs, making it easy for people to buy BTC with fiat and then swap BTC for altcoins.

    For those who want to have Decred without going through BTC and without the hassle of mining, I suggest they simply offer their products and services for Decred. Why not accept Decred for small online jobs? Why not sell small things or intangible goods for Decred? I will certainly do it. Even if none of the clients will own Decred, it will spread the word.

    Yes, a very astute comment. The best way to accumulate Decred will be to transact in Decred much the way it was hard to buy Bitcoin in the beginning before the exchange infrastructure caught up. Also keep an eye out for OpenBazaar, it would likely be trivial to add Decred support or fork the project and allow anyone to buy or sell products using Decred.

    I think exchange adoption will not be long. Most likely several weeks at the longest.

    OpenBazar looks like not finished. Is there any place where it is possible to buy DCR?

    Both bittrex and bleutrade now have DCR. Both sites seem legitimate (used both with success).
