Dash is in the Spotlight – Product Release & Updates
Dash is enjoying the limelight. The privacy coin is now available on Coinbase and CoinbasePro. And on AtomicDEX.
It’s hard to catch up with Dash these days. Recently, Altcoin Buzz has published an extensive article on it. But the coin has managed to flourish since then. To begin with, Coinbase, one of the world’s largest and most mature cryptocurrency exchanges, announced that it’s going to list the coin. The news comes from an official tweet.
Dash (DASH) is launching at https://t.co/bCG11KveHS and in the iOS and Android apps within the next 15 minutes. You may need to update your app to properly buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store DASH. We will update when DASH is fully live. https://t.co/ZLhqDLmQVD

In a Medium post, the U.S.-based exchange states that Dash is available on Coinbase.com and in the Coinbase Android and iOS apps. Coinbase customers can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store Dash. However, residents of New York and the United Kingdom won’t be able to enjoy the service. The reaction of the community was predominantly positive. However, some were still expressing a great deal of hate toward it, using Arthur Haye’s type of language.
The announcement comes after the recent approval of Dash by CoinBase Pro. Beginning September 17, the traders can buy, sell, convert, transfer Dash coins through iOS and Android apps now. Yet the very same traders from New York and the United Kingdom are left out.
AtomicDEX has added Dash
Besides, earlier this month, Komodo, the blockchain platform, launched an end to end exchange, AtomicDEX. It integrates Dash and has so much to offer. For instance, it’s a multi-currency wallet. Therefore, it’s a secure, non-custodial wallet that stores hundreds of different types of cryptocurrencies. These currencies include Bitcoin, Komodo, Ethereum, ERC-20 tokens.
Secondly, AtomicDEX has built-in decentralized trading features. It is built on the industry’s most advanced peer-to-peer mobile-first atomic swap protocol. Thirdly, digital asset trading still remains centralized. AtomicDEX main strength is its trustless and decentralized nature of blockchain technology.
Fourthly, AtomicDEX provides a new level of security and decentralization as peer-to-peer trading can be carried out without intermediaries. Users don’t need to give up control over their private keys and funds.
The native Peer-to-Peer exchange will allow crypto holders to trade directly between each other without the interference of a third party. The public beta version of Komodo’s AtomicDEX is now available for both Android and iOS operating systems.
For the uninitiated, Dash’s main priority is payments and e-commerce. It offers affordable transaction fees, much lower than credit cards and the transaction is very fast. Currently, DASH ranks 16th in the market cap ($ 835 million). And its daily trading volume is $ 232 million.
Last month, Dash released the Dash Core v0.14.0.3. It also has an SMS donations system. It’s a P2P charity system that offers an automated and distributed form of processing charitable donations.
