Dash (English: Dash, formerly: Darkcoin / XCoin) is a Peer-to-Peer payment network based on an open source protocol that provides instant transaction approval (instant send) and transaction history obfuscation (private send) as a cryptocurrency.
Dash is also said to be the world's first DAO (Autonomous Decentralized Organization) consisting of a distributed governance and budgeting system.
Unlike Bitcoin, which uses SHA-256 for the proof-of-work algorithm, Dash uses a hash algorithm called X11.
Blockchain blocks are generated approximately every 2.5 minutes, the official client software uses Dash Core, the license is an MIT License, and the programming language is C++.
