Dash coin is a privacy coin focused on offering secure, fast transactions, with users having the option of making them 100% anonymous – as opposed to pseudo-anonymous like Bitcoin. Dash coin was founded in 2014 by Evan Duffield, who believed privacy was an overlooked problem with Bitcoin. The Bitcoin developer community refused to listen to Duffield. He subsequently created a fork of the Bitcoin protocol, adding various enhancements to the original code.
Alongside the ability to buy and store Dash coin physically in a cryptocurrency wallet, it’s also possible to trade the price of this burgeoning crypto coin. Social trading community, eToro offers its members the chance to trade Dash coin using contracts for difference (CFDs) which allow you to place ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ orders on Dash without having to physically own it.
