Long term developments for Dash

An Official Dash RoadMap has been implemented together with its next scaling phase termed ‘Evolution’.

Dash Evolution promises to be the first user-friendly and scalable digital currency platform suitable for mass adoption.

Evolution will be launched in three stages. Each release will increase the processing power, ease of use, feature set, and scalability of the network.

With works in the progress and the launch of ‘Evolution’ mid June 2018, here’s the roadmap:

In addition to the roadmap, a new team, called Dash Labs from Hong Kong has been created. This team will be the scientific arm of the project, focusing on research and the development of custom hardware.

Dash Labs will be responsible for the research and development of custom, open-source hardware, including specialized chips for accelerated processing of blocks.

We’ve seen how difficult it is for a blockchain to scale, especially when adoption is growing so fast. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum are having serious slow-downs when they approach 300,000 transactions per day according to Freer.
