DASH - convenient and secure online shopping

  • Launch Date: 2014
  • Founder: Evan Duffield
 

DASH’s (DASH) vision of being a practical, real-time, live payment tool is among its most distinguishable characteristics. The DASH platform offers a growing list of retailers and online businesses that accept DASH as payment. DASH offers cheap and fast transactions within a securely backed-up Blockchain environment. It is a decentralized platform with a high profile of privacy. Some analysts predict that 2018 will be a good year for altcoins like DASH. Furthermore, a steady price growth is suggested, as demand for DASH digital money increases and only half of the cryptocurrency maximum supply of 19 million coins is circulating in the market. Another great feature of DASH is that besides private online payments it also supports a decentralized in-store usage of a multitude of open-source platforms. DASH can be used on multiple devices. Analysts predict a gain of around 700% within a five-year investment period.

 

DASH core features

DASH, like many similar peer-to-peer transaction and payment platforms, runs a decentralized, community-driven type of governance. DASH is practically governed by masternode holders (owners of more than 1000 Dash coins held on private servers). Mining is the primary source of gathering the coin. With DASH, transactions are untraceable, private and encrypted. Dash embraces platform innovations and policies towards further bringing transactions to the point of instant real-time trade. It uses an integrated database to transfer digital assets between participants, which prevents third-party interference or any centralized management regulations. Within the Roadmap paper, the platform describes its future goals towards further evolving digital cash, forging it into a useful and conventional payment method globally. Using a decentralized Application Programming Interface (API), DASH allows near-instant payments from user to user (customers – merchants), just by adding it to a mobile application or a website.

 

Vision for DASH

DASH’s mission is to make virtual money accessible and easy to use by the masses, including by users who are not technologically savvy. It is developing the digital currency platform Dash Evolution, which is set to allow any user to set up an account on the Blockchain, add contacts and transfer money to them. The platform is designed to make online purchases simple, requiring just a single click. It will also allow the possibility of setting up auto debits to pay for subscription services. Moreover, customers will be able to rate their purchases to help the community choose higher quality vendors.

DASH is compatible on multiple platforms and the range of merchants accepting DASH payments has been increasing since its release in 2014 to more than 500 presently.
