Dash is a cryptocurrency created for instant and private payments. Formerly known as DarkCoin and Xcoin, Dash was renamed in 2015 to avoid any illicit connotations with the darknets. Its current name is a made-up word: [D]igital + c[ash].
The most significant technical difference between Bitcoin and Dash is the underlying blockchain. While Bitcoin operates within a single-tier network, Dash uses the two-tier chain with masternodes on the second level. Those nodes implement governance functions as well as perform InstantSend and PrivateSend payments within the network. Each masternode uses 1,000 DASH each as collateral thus protecting itself from forged identity attacks and boosting overall Dash security.
Dash is a mineable cryptocurrency with a limited issue size of 18,900,000 coins. Within the first two days after the launch, 1.9 million coins were mined. As of April, 2019, its circulating supply exceeded 8,700,000. That leaves enough space for DASH to grow with escalating computing power.
