Dash (DASH) can be termed as ‘cash of digital transaction’ for the anonymity of the transaction it allows to the users. Formerly known as ‘Darkcoin,’ Dash payments are private and cannot be tracked along with balances. InstaX, a neoteric technology, is the backbone of Dash transactions. While DASH transactions are similar to Bitcoin, it has an added layer of security provided by InstaX, for increasing the anonymity. Beside InstaX, a core network of servers called Masternodes is the added advantage of DASH transaction. In the case of Bitcoins, confirmation of transaction takes time, which is significantly reduced in DASH by the use of Masternode.

Future Prospect of DASH:
Interestingly, there is only 22 million Dash ever created, which makes it a deflationary currency. Although Masternodes add various advantage to the Dash transaction, it requires 1000 Dash nodes as collateral to prevent Sybil attacks or “ballot stuffing.” According to an estimation, Master Nodes currently earn at a rate of 6.84% per year. However, daily active addresses are pushing all-time highs in recent month, besides many stress tests on the network. In addition to that, there are over 9,575 members in 19 DASH groups on meetup.com and a subscriber base of over 23,000 on Reddit. Unlike various cryptocurrencies whose value has reduced after a sudden jerk, DASH has maintained its stability because of Masternode and treasury component. Overall, asset value seems to be bullish for DASH throughout most of 2019.
