Dash Releases Version 0.13.0 Upgrade to Build Foundation for Dash Evolution, @Dashpay

Release to focus on improving consensus methods on the network through automatic InstantSend and a deterministic masternode list


New York, NY - January 14, 2019 ( Newswire) Dash, the top digital currency for payments and e-commerce, has announced the release of the Dash Core v0.13.0 software to serve as the foundation for Dash Evolution, a series of network updates designed to make Dash the most user-friendly blockchain-based payment system in the world. Dash Core encourages all Masternode operators, exchanges, pools, and explorers to update to v0.13.0, as the upgrade will be required in order to continue receiving rewards.

The software release focuses on improving consensus methods on the network, and includes the following highlights:

  • Automatic InstantSend, which will improve the speed of most transactions at no additional cost
  • A deterministic masternode list, which will provide a single source of truth for clients validating transactions
  • Special transactions to accommodate non-financial transactions on the blockchain
  • Several improvements to private transactions, including speeding up the mixing process, as well as introducing an additional denomination of .001 Dash

Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core Group, said: “This is an exciting upgrade for us as we continue to make progress on the launch of Dash Evolution. Version 0.13.0 will improve numerous key functions within the Dash network, including both InstantSend and PrivateSend, and accommodates new transaction types that lay the groundwork for many future uses of the Dash platform, such as the ability to build applications or attach metadata to transactions.”

Currently, Dash offers instant, peer-to-peer payments with micro-fees and is accepted by thousands of merchants worldwide. Dash Evolution is a decentralized payments platform built on Dash blockchain technology. The platform will take payments to the next level by providing businesses and developers with the ability to build user-friendly, Venmo-like applications that allow people to create accounts with customized user names instead of cryptographic addresses to exchange Dash. Additionally, Evolution will enable developers to build dApps without the infrastructure needed to run a full node, made possible through decentralized hosting. As part of Dash Evolution, Dash Core Group, Inc. plans to release its own consumer-facing payments app called Dashpay to demonstrate the platform's capabilities.
