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.

The returned object contains information about the latest block in JSON format, including its height, the number of transactions in it and more. Address APIDocumentation
Address EndpointThe default Address Endpoint strikes a general information about addresses.
Address API allows you to look up information about public addresses on the blockchain, generate single-use, low-value key pairs with corresponding addresses.Documentation
Generate Address EndpointThe Generate Address endpoint allows you to generate private-public key-pairs along with an associated public address.
Address Transactions EndpointGet general information about Address Transactions Endpoint
Transactions Txid EndpointGet general information about Transactions Txid Endpoint
The Transaction Txid Endpoint returns detailed information about a given transaction based on its id.Documentation
Transactions Block EndpointGet general information about Transactions Block Endpoint
The Transaction Index by Block Endpoint returns detailed information about a list of transactions.Documentation
Unconfirmed Transactions EndpointGet general information about Unconfirmed Transactions Endpoint
The Unconfirmed Transactions Endpoint returns an array of the latest transactions relayed by nodes in a blockchain that haven’t been included in any blocks.Documentation
Decode Raw Transactions EndpointGet general information Decode Raw Transactions Endpoint
We also offer the ability to decode raw transactions without sending propagating them to the network; perhaps you want to double-check another client library or confirm that another service is sending proper transactions.Documentation
Creating Transactions EndpointGet general information about Creating Transactions Endpoint
Using Crypto APIs, you can push transactions to blockchains one of two ways:Documentation
Sign Transactions EndpointGet general information about Sign Transactions Endpoint
The returned object is a hexadecimal string that represents the signed transaction. This hexadecimal is used by the Send Transactions Endpoint in order to broadcast the transaction into the Bitcoin blockchain.Documentation
Send Transactions EndpointGet general information about Send Transactions Endpoint
Transaction Send Endpoint allows users to broadcast the signed transaction to the Bitcoin blockchain.Documentation
New Transaction EndpointGet general information about New Transaction Endpoint
The New Transaction Endpoint combines the other three endpoints: Create, Sign and Send Endpoints. Users should provide the inputs and outputs fields with the corresponding data, as well as the fee and the wifs(private ECDSA keys) of the addresses. Therefore, the endpoint creates, signs and broadcasts the new transaction to the Bitcoin Blockchain. For more information, see the examples.Documentation
New Transaction Using HDWallet EndpointGet general information about New Transaction Using HDWallet Endpoint
New Transaction Using HDWallet Endpoint provides the possibility to create, sign and send new transactions using your HDWallet.Documentation
Transactions Fee EndpointGet general information about Transactions Fee Endpoint
Transactions Fee Endpoint Get general information about Transactions Fee Endpoint Transactions Fee Endpoint gives information about the fees for all transactions included in the last 70 blocks.Documentation
