■ DASH News:
Dash has released version 0.14 to testnet, which brings Dash one step
closer to its next big development milestone, Evolution. The upgrade will
help make Dash more efficient in processing transactions and data, which
is necessary for future scaling and the improvements that Evolution plans
to bring. It will also help further secure the Dash blockchain from 51%
attacks by locking-in the first block published at each height, which will
enable merchants to accept valid transactions more confidently, much
sooner.
The Dash Evolution github repositories are now being released for public
and open-source access. Dash has received criticism in the past for
keeping these code repositories private. The organization stated that they
were in the process of refining the code to make sure it met a high
standard before public release and also to maintain Dash’s competitive
edge. The Dash Core Group has long promised to make these public and
is fulfilling its promise, which is also a positive sign that the release of
Evolution is getting closer.
■ Trading History YTD:
Since trading down during the first month of the year, the price of Dash has
experienced positive price momentum throughout February and March,
2019.
■ Current Environment:
Positive price momentum continued in Dash last week as it rose steadily
throughout the week.
Volumes for the week were in line with the previous weeks volumes
averaging 2.5 million coins per day.
