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 a penny

    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 A Penny.

We’ve all heard the horror stories of Bitcoin’s transaction fee continuing to rise, now averaging over $30. How will cryptocurrency ever be used to buy a coffee if it costs $30 to send Bitcoin to someone?

With Dash, transfers cost less than a single cent. The Core developers view this as essential to making a compelling use case for Dash to be implemented throughout the economy.

Transfer Time:

One Second.

Did you know that it takes hours to make a Bitcoin transaction? With Dash, transfers can happen instantly, allowing merchants to receive your payments one second after you send it with their InstantSend feature.

The Treasury

You can get funded 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 of millions of US Dollars. That monthly pool is used to fund plans (proposals) by anyone who wants to help Dash grow.
Even Dash Core, the founders and developers of Dash, are funded via this proposal process

thinking about submitting a proposal?

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:
