Dash (DASH) Information{coin_name} ({symbol}) Information

Your money, your way.

Dash (formerly known as Darkcoin and XCoin) is an open source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency. On top of Bitcoin's feature set, it currently offers instant transactions (InstantSend), private transactions (PrivateSend) and operates a self-governing and self-funding model that enables the Dash network to pay individuals and businesses to perform work that adds value to the network. Dash's decentralized governance and budgeting system makes it a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers

How does Dash differ from regular currencies & Bitcoin?
Just like regular cash, and Bitcoin, Dash can be used to buy goods electronically. Like Bitcoin, Dash has no central authority controlling its distribution, inflation rate, or anything dealing with the currency. All of that is controlled by algorithms. Algorithms that are run on individual’s computer hardware which makes Dash completely decentralized.
What is the DGBB?
Decentralized Governance by Blockchain, although there has been a lot of hype around The DAO – short for a Decentralized Autonomous Organization – Dash is the first of such a construction. It is a Sybil-attack-proof decentralized governance and funding system. This means that it is not possible to game the system by creating multiple pseudonymous nodes to gain more control over the network artificially than one user was intended to have. In this way, money can be spent in a decentralized fashion based on network consensus. Users submit proposals on community-owned sites and each masternode owner is given a single vote. Once a proposal gains the required network support, the funds are automatically disbursed when the next super block is released the following month. These funds come from mining efforts as 10% of the mined Dash coins are set aside for DGBB proposals. The other 90% is split evenly between Dash miners and Dash Masternode operators – the guys who get to vote.
How is Dash issued?
Dash’s issuance is not controlled by banks or other central authorities. It is instead ‘mined’ using distributed computing power. Further, unlike Bitcoin, which relies solely on the miner’s to support the network, Dash has a two-tiered network system supported equally by miners and operators of ‘masternodes’. Anyone can download the Dash software and support the network by running a ‘full node’. But Masternodes provide more services to the network than regular full nodes, and as such, they are incentivized through mining rewards as discussed above. Masternodes provide the backbone for the anonymization functions that are not present in Bitcoin transactions by default.
What do you need to become a masternode?
To become a masternode, a user must put 1000 Dash up as collateral. This Dash never leaves the user’s control; it is only meant to make it prohibitively expensive to gain control of a majority of masternodes. The owner can at any time remove, spend or do otherwise with the funds, though this will disable their status as a masternode and prevent them from receiving mining rewards.
From where does Dash derive its value?
Just like bitcoin, and unlike traditional currencies which are backed by fiat, or commodities like oil, Dash is fully decentralized and its value comes not from tangible assets but from mathematics. There is a formula or algorithm that dictates how and when Dash are created. The software is open-source, so anyone can check it, and anyone can run it.
What are the core features of Dash?
Since Dash is a fork of the Bitcoin code, it still shares many of the same features as bitcoin, while improving on some of them, like the Masternode system mentioned above. As a matter of fact, another benefit of the Masternode system is the way it allows for network consensus on the direction and governance of Dash as a whole. This is in addition to its benefit in anonymizing transactions and otherwise supporting the network. As proof of this, while the Bitcoin community has been debating the blocksize issue for the better part of two years now, in early 2016 Dash managed to solve the same problem in 24 hours. The masternode owners voted to raise the blocksize of Dash to 2 MB. Contrast this smooth process with the PR-nightmare of Bitcoin’s attempt at the same; often resulting in heated online wars-of-words.
How fast is Dash?
It is very fast. Unlike Bitcoin, Dash generates blocks four times as quickly, every 2 minutes and 30 seconds as opposed to Bitcoin’s 10 minutes. Which means that, even without increasing the blocksize limit to two MBs, the Dash network could’ve handled four times the transaction volume of Bitcoin.
Can Dash reverse transactions?
Finally, like Bitcoin, Dash transactions cannot be reversed unless the recipient sends them back. Once they’re sent, they’re sent.
How big are Dash transaction fees?
Transaction fees are tiny. Unlike like Bitcoin that is recording high transactions recently, Dash is easy and inexpensive to transact with.
is Dash decentralized?
It is decentralized. As explained above, Dash has no central authority in control of it. No one to shut off your funds or disable your account. You literally become your own bank. This is an incredibly powerful proposition.
is it easy to get involved in the Dash project?
It is very easy to use and get involved in the Dash project. Whether as a node operator, Masternode operator, miner, or software developer.
