What Sets Dash Apart?

Dash is a digital currency that works just like cash.

Four main features:

  • Send Instantly

    Dash can transfer instantly. This is essential for making real-world transactions.

  • Send Privately

    Dash allows you to make transactions completely anonymously.

  • Fees under one cent

    It costs less than a single cent to send any amount of dash to someone.

  • Proposal Funding

    Anyone with an idea that will help to drive dash adoption can apply for funding from the dash Treasury. This allows dash to hire contractors, marketers and YOU.

Transaction Fees:

Less Than One Cent.

Transacting in Bitcoin can be unpredictably expensive. Fees have at times risen higher than $30 per transaction during peak network usage. Buying a coffee should never incur such a transaction fee. Dash has made cryptocurrency transactions cost next to nothing.

With Dash, transactions cost less than a cent. There is overwhelming Network support for maintaining that rate and a revolutionary blockchain governance system helps ensure it amid market volatility. If the network experiences a surge, blocks can easily scale through Dash’s unique governance.

Transfer Time:

One Second.

Did you know that it can take hours to make a Bitcoin transaction when network usage is peaking? With Dash, payments can happen instantly, allowing merchants to receive the funds with full confidence one second after you send it with the InstantSend feature.

The Dash Wallet

Store And Spend Dash With A Wallet

For most people storing and spending small amounts of Dash, a mobile wallet is ideal. You can download a wallet for iPhone or Android below:
Your security practices should be appropriate for the amount of Dash you are storing. A small amount is probably fine on an exchange or a smartphone wallet. A large amount should be kept offline on a hardware wallet like a Trezor or a Ledger Nano S.

The Treasury

Get Funding To Help Dash Grow

Anyone can get funding to play important roles in the growth and development of Dash by submitting a proposal to the Dash Treasury.
Dash's treasury has a monthly budget in the millions of US Dollars. That pool is used to fund proposals by partners, merchants, marketers, and anyone who wants to help Dash grow. Even Dash Core, the developers of Dash, are funded via this proposal process.

Here's what you need to know:
Submitting a proposal costs 5 Dash.
Masternodes (people holding 1000 Dash) vote on the proposals.

Before Your Proposal:

Forum Discussion & Escrow

Start a pre-proposal discussion in the forum.

All proposals must first post their proposal idea and costs in the Dash Forum. This allows the community to give valuable feedback and indicate whether or not your proposal is favorable to the network.

Arrange Escrow.

If your proposal is asking for over $75,000 you should arrange escrow prior to submitting your proposal. Currently, the Dash network recognizes three Escrow providers: Dash Core, Greencandle, and Demo. You can contact them below:

your escrow options

Dash Core is the core group of developers behind Dash.

They are happy to handle escrow proposals on behalf of the Netowork.

Green Candle is a private company that handles escrow on behalf of the Dash Network.

They’ve escrowed lots of proposals and are perfectly reliable and very responsive.
