About Dash

Dash is a cryptocurrency with optional speed and privacy features. Its unique network architecture consists of both regular miners and privileged machines called Masternodes.

How it works

Dash uses a unique consensus mechanism that isn’t quite like Bitcoin’s proof of work or like Cardano’s proof of stake (even though it is based on staking). Instead of requiring transaction confirmation from all of the network’s nodes, special validators called “Masternodes” can instantly verify a transaction. 

Each Masternode is incentivized to be honest because they must have at least 1,000 of their own DASH staked. This staked DASH can be “slashed” if the Masternode validates an improper transaction. In exchange for doing the work of verifying transactions, Masternodes earn rewards.

Keep in mind

Dash is designed to be also self-governing and self-funding, which helps position DASH as a sustainable and useful cryptocurrency for sending and receiving payments.
