Dash overview

  1. Dash is a fork of Litecoin, and Litecoin is a fork of Bitcoin, so Dash has some ties with the original Bitcoin blockchain, but because of differences between Bitcoin and Litecoin, it is still more closely linked to Litecoin.
  2. Like Bitcoin, Dash has a total supply of 18 million coins.
  3. The Dash average block mining time is four times faster and takes 2.5 minutes per block, instead of Bitcoin (10 minutes and more).
  4. Dash blockchain includes:
  • Masternodes, making up a second-tier network, and existing on top of the first tier of regular network miners;
  • PrivateSend, a system that swaps coins between users for breaking the traceability of coins to make the network safer, so a transaction cannot be traced and the coin’s history cannot be accessed;
  • InstantSend allows transactions to be instantly confirmed by the Masternode network.
  1. Dash runs on a self-funding and self-governing protocol. In the Bitcoin blockchain, a miner gets 100% of the reward per mined block. In the Dash blockchain, 10% of mining rewards go back to Dash, so Dash’s network can fund itself for further growth and adoption.
  2. Current Dash use cases include payments, micro, and cross-border payments, eSports and gaming, remittances, energy, and financial services.
  3. Dash has almost the fastest transactions and lowest fees among blockchain networks.
  4. Dash price was less than $10 until the end of 2016 and reached up to $1606 in December 2017.
