About Dash

Dash is Digital Cash, aimed at making instant private payments online or in-store using a secure open source platform. Dash uses a self-governing, self-funding protocol with "Masternodes" to help drive development growth where participants propose and fund projects directly within the network.

Dash can be used to purchase services through thousands of merchants like Overstock, Cheapair, eGifter, and can be used to buy gift cards for even more mainstream retailers like Bed Bath and Beyond and Macy’s. Dash has become well known for its widespread use and availability in Venezuela, a country where the local currency has been devalued to nearly zero. Throughout Venezuela, Dash can be used to purchase necessities like groceries and even real estate.

Dash describes itself as “money that’s better than cash,” and offers transaction speeds under one second and flat rate fees under one cent.

History

Dash was founded by Evan Duffield and was released in January 2014. During the first two days after its release, a bug in the code caused nearly 1.9 million coins to be mined, roughly 10 percent of the total supply. The bug was immediately fixed and miners were able to keep the coins.

The asset recovered from its uncertain beginnings and is currently the 15th largest crypto asset by market cap. At the time of writing, there are 8.83 million Dash circulated, with a limited supply of 22 million.

Dash is up more than 90 percent this year.
