O que é o Dash?#

Dash aims to be the most user-friendly and scalable payments-focused cryptocurrency in the world. The Dash network features instant transaction confirmation, double spend protection, optional privacy equal to that of physical cash, a self-governing, self-funding model driven by incentivized full nodes and a clear roadmap for on-chain scaling to up to 400MB blocks using custom-developed open source hardware. While Dash is based on Bitcoin and compatible with many key components of the Bitcoin ecosystem, its two-tier network structure offers significant improvements in transaction speed, privacy and governance. This section of the documentation describes these and many more key features that set Dash apart in the blockchain economy.

The Dash Whitepaper describes the original unique value proposition and key innovations in Dash from an academic and theoretical perspective. It is a historical document available as a GitHub wiki, and no longer receives updates as new features or architectural changes are implemented. Instead, these features are described in successive Dash Improvement Proposals (DIPs), while larger architectural changes are described in separate whitepapers. Features backported from Bitcoin are described in Bitcoin Improvement Proposals (BIPs).


The Dash Roadmap sets out delivery milestones for future releases of Dash and includes specific technical details describing how the development team plans to realise each challenge.
