Although cryptocurrency is a viable solution to the issues in the banking and financial sectors, many are still unaware of its potentials. The most prevalent challenge the blockchain faces, all over the world, today, is the lack of adoption by many. This is even more evident in the way it is conceived by many – a way of making more money by buying cryptocurrencies when the price is still low, and selling them when it has really appreciated.
The Bitcoin blockchain, for example, was mostly utilized for the purpose of making extra money, as the price was seen to have risen terribly high over a short period of time – sometimes by a factor of 10, 20 or even more. This, however, is not what the blockchain is meant to achieve, and the misconception of it is one of the reasons why cryptocurrencies are not finding practical and convenient use.
The goal of the cryptocurrencies is to create a more convenient way of making financial transactions. It aims to end the incongruences that are prevalent in the banking and financial system, the lack of access to personal financial details, and the insecurity of finances in the current banking system, putting back power and direct access to one’s finance. Moreover, it also aims to simplify financial relationships between different individuals regardless of their locations.
A Look At Dash Features
Being the first, the Bitcoin blockchain has gained more popularity than other cryptocurrencies. However, it possesses some features that make the adoption of cryptocurrencies to be difficult for many. One of them is the problem of scalability which is the ability of technology to adapt to bigger changes – Bitcoin grew slower when the number of users increased drastically. Now, it takes between 10 minutes and, sometimes, 2-3 days for a transaction to be successful.
Dash cryptocurrencies, however, is built to remedy this problem. It is a two-tier blockchain network that features a masternode. With this masternode feature, transactions are as fast as 5 seconds, and can even be as fast as 0.5 seconds using the Dash InstantSend feature. So, it is more feasible to make financial transactions easily and faster with Dash cryptocurrency compare too many other cryptocurrencies.
Another feature on the Dash blockchain that makes it a more adoptable cryptocurrency is the limit of transaction. To transact on the Bitcoin blockchain, for example, a minimum amount of 3 USD is required. This implies that, if someone wants to buy an item that costs about 1 USD, they can’t use Bitcoin as a means of payment. Dash, on the other hand, allows a minimum of 0.3 USD, making it possible to purchase an item, no matter how low the price is.
The adoption of Dash in Nigeria has been impressive so far, which has made it one of the leading cryptocurrencies to be widely adopted by merchants. The benchmark for Dash utility in Nigeria can be attributed to how it is being used, its trading rate and holders. This has been made possible by lots of innovative features that have been integrated into Dash like Dash Masternode, Instant Send, Private send and soon-coming ChainLock feature.
However, Dash is yet to realize its ultimate adoption goal which is to dominate the whole of Africa. It aims to become the primary means of exchange for Africans in such a way that Africans can purchase their everyday items like airtime recharge, food items, and so on. It would also become a means of paying bills, taxes, and more. Dash is set to become a massively adopted cryptocurrency in Africa, with low transaction fees on every transaction.
Dash is a viable cryptocurrency which will revolutionize financial transactions in Nigeria, but this can only be achieved if people are educated enough to understand how it works. This is the reason for the Dash Nigeria Conference.
