Director of Finance Ryan Taylor in an interview with BTC-ECHO. In this interview, DASH looked into the cards and depicted the origin, present and future of the crypto currency.
DASH is one of the currencies of which crypto aficionados have already heard. We have already reported on the currency. It is a crypto currency, which controls the further actions of the developers with a decentralized governance system, ultimately a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization). Furthermore, DASH enables instantaneous transactions and is a system that promises anonymity and fungibility – enough reasons for an interview!
The Director of Finance of DASH, Ryan Taylor, was kind enough to answer some questions that were burning under our nails. And so we don’t want to keep on skirmishing. So, here we go…
DASH – What is that?
Hello Ryan. Tell us a little about how you came to crypto currencies and finally to DASH!
Like so many others, my first contact with digital currencies was Bitcoin. As an economist with a focus on payment solutions, I was immediately enthusiastic about the idea behind Bitcoin. Despite all the enthusiasm, I could also find some weaknesses in the system.
That’s why I started looking at alternatives to Bitcoin at the beginning of 2014. I focused on those that weren’t just a gimmick or proof of concept, but solved real-life problems.
This led me to DASH, a crypto currency that could solve many of the problems crypto currencies have to do with. I just had to be involved – this currency had and has incredibly disruptive potential! So I came to DASH. After we got to know your background a little bit and now arrived at DASH.
Can you say something about the background of this crypto currency?
Gladly! Evan Duffield Evan Duffield started DASH in January 2014. The original intention was to create a testing ground for ideas that could improve Bitcoin.
The original ideas revolved around privacy, which is still one of DASH’s primary associations today. Over time, the project grew and so did our expectations.
With DASH, we have a pioneering position within the industry in a number of places: we were the first to offer truly spontaneous payments, we were the first to expand the concept of financial rewards so that not only the miners benefited from a stable network, and finally we were the first to create a crypto currency that regulated itself through decentralized governance.
In the next step, “DASH Evolution”, we want to make crypto currencies even easier to use.
