Dash Platform

Dash Platform

In June 2017, Dash creator Evan Duffield published the roadmap for Dash Evolution.

Now several years in the making, the largest upcoming and highly anticipated Evolution installment called Dash Platform is to be released. It allows for: human-readable usernames; a decentralized HTTP API; blockchain storage of data, and more. 

Dash Platform is an application development platform that leverages the Dash masternode network and blockchain by transforming Dash’s peer-to-peer network into a decentralized cloud. It will create a frictionless developer experience with SDKs (Software Development Kits) to easily develop applications.

Dash Platform Name Poll

Dash Platform Name Poll

Towards the release of Dash Platform, members of the Dash community started a discussion around the name. Many believe that it deserves a name that emphasizes the groundbreaking innovations that this update will include.

The desire to change the name ‘Platform’ is further supported by the fact that the brand ‘Dash Platform’ already exists as a sports software company. 

In the Contest Gallery below are names suggested by the Dash community.

The result of the poll will represent the opinion of the community and acts as a name proposal to Dash Core Group.
