Dash (Ticker: DASH) is digital cash — instant payments and micro-fees, anytime and anywhere. We believe payments take too long and cost too much. Dash provides individual users, merchants, and businesses a better way to pay and get paid. For the underbanked to the banked, e-commerce to point of sale, business-to-consumer and business-to-business, Dash users keep more value.
Established in 2014, Dash is a blockchain payments network based on the Bitcoin source code. Dash improves on Bitcoin by adding a second-tier service-layer for increased transaction speed (InstantSend), optional privacy features (PrivateSend), and a governance model with a self-funding treasury system.
Dash is open-source and not-for-profit. Dash operates as a decentralized autonomous organization. Network participants vote each month to reach consensus on budget and development proposals. This allows Dash to allows to focus on solving user problems, growing the network, and creating new opportunities for users.
