Dash (formerly XCoin or DarkCoin) is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency payment system which implements advanced technologies and features to make itself attractive to both users and merchants. PrivateSend ensures that transactions are kept private through the use of a coin-mixing service, while InstantSend confirms transactions near instantly. Master nodes form a second tier network. This second tier performs all of Dash’s special functions (PrivateSend, InstantSend and governance). It is self governing by means of a Decentralized Governance by Blockchain system, meaning that the operators of the master nodes can vote on proposed changes or development and pay those who make these changes from a central “treasury” (which is funded by 10% of all block rewards). DASH is the asset of value by which payments are made on the blockchain.
Use Dash to make instant, private payments online or in-store using our secure open-source platform hosted by thousands of users around the world.
