Dash is a privacy-focused cryptocurrency, aimed towards providing low-cost remittances around the world. The Dash Core team under CEO Ryan Taylor, responsible for the development and adoption of Dash has made a lot of progress in Venezuela. They have made it their primary focus as they continue to offer other low-cost solutions to improve the technology infrastructure in Venezuela.
Recently, in an interview with Fred Schebesta of Crypto Finder, Ryan noted that,
“Dash is actually used more often at the point-of-sale in Venezuela than Bitcoin and Litecoin combined… We have two-three thousand merchants in Venezuala acception Dash.”
Dash has also been integrated by MasterCard earlier this year to provide feasible crypto-to-fiat payments. Taylor also talked about Dash integrated cell-phones which have dash wallets in-built in them. According to him, they have shipped a hundred thousand of those phones.
The Dash Core group is also establishing partnerships with existing remittance providers and financial institutions to reduce the overall cost of remittance and decrease the “monopolistic” effect of big firms in the remittance industry.
