Network basic terms

Many people know about the decentralized blockchain system.

However, there are some other Dash technologies:

  • InstantX — provides instantaneous transactions.
  • PrivateSend — the mechanism of payments mixing, which ensures maximum anonymity.
  • Masternodes — key nodes of the network that is responsible for the coins mixing with PrivateSend, as well as for the implementation of InstantX.


Dash is a two-level peer-to-peer network. On the lower system level, the miners generate new blocks, which creates a continuous series of blockchains. The upper level consists of Masternodes. Their number today is already more than 4.5 thousand of servers located in 40 countries.

Anyone can run masternodes and start to earn money. During cryptocurrency mining operators of the nodes receive a part of remuneration. It is 45% of the rewards with each new block. Another 45% goes to the miners, and 10% goes to the budget for system development.

Dash masternodes can run consistently even on a microcomputer with one gigabyte of memory. You will need to have 1000 Dash coins to start your node. They remain entirely at your disposal, but if you decide to spend the money, masternode stop working immediately. The provision is required to ensure that a significant network part is not concentrated in the same hands, which could lead to abuse.

The developers have provided many different options for Dash storage: for Windows, Linux or OSX. Mobile versions for Android and iOS allow you to conduct transactions on your phone or tablet.
