Mycelium Will Integrate Dash This October
Dash has been quite popular these days as Bitcoin.com just recently reported on a crypto teller machine adding Dash integration in Panama. Now Mycelium has added the Altcoin to its interface claiming Dash has a few features many people will enjoy. These attributes include anonymity, low fee, and instant transactions. Currently, Dash is the 8th most valued cryptocurrency in the world with a market capitalization of $56 million USD.
Dash’s VP of Business Development, Daniel Diaz, said in the announcement:
Mycelium is the bitcoin wallet veteran and one of the most widely used digital wallets. They are leaders in the space and as the industry evolves they have a vision of becoming a hub for crypto financial services. We are very excited to be partnering with Mycelium so that their fantastic user base can take advantage of Dash’s innovative features. Thousands of people are using Dash because we have a strong, stable alternative to bitcoin, perfectly suited to the mobile user.
Mycelium will integrate Dash this coming October, which will be accompanied by a new wallet redesign. The wallet company is implementing a “modular and simpler system” in order to incorporate more open source technology use cases. Additionally, Mycelium will be switching their proprietary BitLib library to the BitcoinJ repository as well.
Mycelium is a fan of Dash’s achievements as it has managed a self-governance system, a voting platform, and has over 4,000 full nodes within the network. Mycelium CEO, Alexander Kuzmin, explains:
We benefit from giving our customers direct easy access to one of the most popular cryptocurrencies after Bitcoin, while setting up the Mycelium wallet to be a true multi-currency wallet. Dash benefits from being implemented into the world’s most popular, secure, and trusted wallet, with the backing of a company with an impeccable reputation. Dash has a team of highly skilled developers and we are extremely happy to be partnering with them. Together we will become an even larger force in the cryptocurrency space, it is our goal to give customers a mainstream, easily adaptable digital wallet that will stand the test of time.
The new wallet integration is just one of the new features deployed over the past two years, which include Swish, Gear, and the Mycelium Network card.
