    Hey guys, bitcoind has some great features that all the sources that decred currently have lack. Do you know if there is intent on converting bitcoind over?

    Decred is a fork of btcsuite, which is a full bitcoin node (bitcoind) written in golang. In some ways decred is an improved version of btcoind.
    Which features do you think decred lacks?

    @AngelLox , I'm looking to convert this bitcoind and bitcoin-js code to any working decred code.

    var hdNode = bitcoinjs.HDNode.fromBase58(derivedPubKey);
    exports.deriveAddress = function(index) {
    return hdNode.derive(index).keyPair.getAddress().toString();
    };

    It derives an address for a user based on an inputted BIP32_DERIVED and an index ie a username.

    Also if you're a seasoned coder looking to have a little fun and would like to help me on this project... do you have skype?
