The Dash community can purely rejoice! The announcement was posted on Reddit just a few hours ago by the Dashpay account.
It took place in the Dash Embassy Thailand on 16th of October 2018. The Dash Ambassador Felix Mago and the Missing Buro Mexican restaurant owner Itzco demonstrated how easy and fast is the transaction of the token. What you need to do is just to install the Dash wallet on your smartphone (which is basically an application) and then you can pay for your food. It takes a few seconds. Dash works devotedly on the idea of instant, private payments online, as well as in-store.
The event is not only curious but puts into question the future of the cryptocurrencies. In other words, if it is so easy and so many people already own some cryptos, why other do not do it, too?
Dash has recently experienced a tremendous price surge of 20%. As CryptoFrog reported, the rise of the altcoin’s value followed the announcement of the Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro for the launch of a new, national cryptocurrency called Petro. The coin will be pegged to the oil and a few natural materials and comes as an answer to the country’s daunting crisis. Since the Bolivar is almost worthless now, Venezuela turned to cryptocurrency as an answer to its hyperinflation. The connection between Dash and Petro is that, according to many crypto specialists, Petro seems to be a flagrant copy of the Dash’s protocol. Currently, Dash costs around $153 and has a market capitalization of more than $1.2 billion.
