About this page

The Dash Community Poll is part of the Dash Contests Center and is dedicated to serving the Dash community. It enables creative input to be recognized, a voice to be heard and the option for the community to provide feedback on a wide variety of important Dash related questions, changes, suggestions and decisions.  

This first poll, one of many to be conducted and archived here, has been requested by community members who would like to see the upcoming Dash Platform be branded with a more suitable or marketable name. 

In the near future, a form will be added that will allow the community to suggest or request additional polls.

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 Contest

Dash Platform Name Contest

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. 

The first part to the rebranding contest relies on the creative input of the community to submit suitable names that are then subjected to a community poll.

The second part – the poll, calls upon the community to cast their vote by scoring the contest entries. 

There is no prize money. Participation is on the basis of social goodwill. The winning name will be forever linked to the person who came up with it.

The result of this poll will act as the community’s name proposal for Dash Core Group to consider.
