New electrum server setup + error

Adding a new coin to the electrumx server can be a pain to develop since the only real instructions online are meant to install and 
run it as a service. The following is a guide to get it up and running quickly and to be able to make changes that are quickly reflected.
References: 
https://freedomnode.com/blog/69/how-to-install-an-electrum-server-using-full-bitcoin-node-and-electrumx
https://github.com/kyuupichan/electrumx/blob/master/docs/HOWTO.rst
Assumptions: OSX
1. Install LevelDB
  brew install leveldb

2. Install Python3
  brew install python3

3. Install Python Dependencies
  pip3 install --upgrade pip setuptools wheel
  pip3 install aiohttp pylru leveldb plyvel

4. Clone ElectrumX
  cd <Project Home>
  git clone https://github.com/cipherzzz/electrumx.git

5. Setup Env(Testnet)
  export DAEMON_URL="http://<rpcuser>:<rpcpassword>@127.0.0.1:19119/"
  export DB_DIRECTORY="/Users/macuser/.electrumx/"
  export DB_ENGINE="leveldb"
  export HOST="0.0.0.0"
  export COIN="Decred"
  export NET="testnet"

6. Startup electrumx
  cd <Project Home>/electrumx
  python3 ./electrumx_server.py

*Note

You should see the server startup with an error like:

ERROR:Daemon:connection problem - is your daemon running? Retrying occasionally...

7. Startup dcrd(testnet)
dcrd --testnet -u USER -P PASSWORD --rpclisten=127.0.0.1:19119 --rpccert=$HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Dcrd/rpc.cert --notls

*Note

I am getting further now, but I'm not sure what this error means:
