Dash

Dash was launched in 2014 by Evan Duffield, originally under the name of Xcoin and darkcoin. Dash is a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) in which all decisions are taken by Masternodes through a voting process. Masternodes perform other functions as well, like validating transactions, hosting a copy of the blockchain and others. The Dash structure includes alongside masternodes, also nodes and miners. To become a masternode you need to fulfill a few requirements, one of which is owning of a minimum of 1000 Dash. In return for their services, masternodes receive dividends.

Another peculiarity of the Dash blockchain is the PrivateSend functionality, which allows users to maintain the privacy of their transactions, by adding multiple identical inputs and outputs. Dash also supports a feature called InstantSend – through masternode quorums, users can send instant and irreversible transactions.

The Dash hard cap is 18 million coins, which means that there will never be more than 18 million Dash in circulation. The average transaction speed is 2,5 minutes, the same average speed of Litecoin transactions.

Crypto APIs supports DASH APIs for mainnet and testnet.
