Dash is a cryptocurrency with a focus on safe and secure digital payments within a user-friendly and scalable platform. Featuring instant transaction confirmation, double spend protection, anonymity equal to the that of physical fiat currency, a self governance system, and an aligned incentivization scheme, the Dash network is an impressive suite of digital payment technology. Modeled off of Bitcoin, Dash makes several improvements over Bitcoin in the form of transaction speed, anonymity, and governance.
Dash is also notably the first coin to introduce masternodes, full nodes that reward operators for their contributions to the Dash network. Masternodes are gaining traction as a means of collecting a passive income. Users running a Dash masternode can expect to earn up to 45% of a given block reward.
