VANCOUVER, Feb. 28, 2018 /CNW/ - HashChain Technology Inc. ("HashChain" or the"Company") (TSXV: KASH; OTCQB: HSSHF) today announces they voted affirmatively on a series of Dash proposals engineered to establish and promote DASH cryptocurrency as the future of global payments. HashChain holds a masternode in Dash that allows the Company voting privileges on budget proposals paid for by Dash's treasury, or important decisions that affect the currency. DASH is a form of "Digital Cash" providing realistic, reliable, digital cash solution for the global economy.
The first approved DASH proposal will budget 18 Dash, an approximate $15,200 CDN value based on Dash's $846.25 CDN price on February 22, 2018, over a three month period to develop a payment system for retail markets in Europe, beginning in the UK, further expanding the potential for Dash to be a form of global payments. This includes integration with NOBLY Point of Sale (POS), the largest UK POS provider, and more than 50 merchant integrations are anticipated by the end of Q2 2018. Voting for the second proposal, which closes in under a week, determines whether to budget 41 Dash, an approximately $34,700 CDN value based on the above referenced Dash value, over a three month period to fund "Dash Academy", an online education platform with courses and information designed to educate on how the Dash ecosystem operates as a currency and viable payment option.
"Dash is a technologically advanced cryptocurrency that supports features like PrivateSend and InstantSend; initiatives such as these helps accelerate growth and market share," said Patrick Gray, CEO and Founder of HashChain. "We are excited to have the privilege as a masternode holder to help push forward initiatives that educate and continuously promote Dash's viability as a payment method for countries around the globe."
In October 2017, HashChain purchased 1,000 Dash for a total of $280,000 USD. To run a masternode, an investor must have at least 1,000 Dash in their wallet. By running a masternode, HashChain can participate in voting on Dash initiatives that have a direct influence on the direction of the network. Masternodes allow users of Dash to carry out anonymous transactions ("PrivateSend) and enable instantaneous transactions ("InstantSend") that eliminate bottlenecks in the blockchain and provide double-spend-proof capabilities. The Dash network currently rewards masternodes at a rate of 6.6 Dash per month. On February 22, 2017, Dash was valued at $27.66 CDN, and a year later on February 22, 2018, it was valued at $846.25 CDN, that is the equivalent to $5,585.25 CDN per month per masternode. The Company will not be receiving USD (or any other fiat currency) as a result of the Company's plans not to convert the Dash from the masternodes into Fiat and until the Company's plans change at which time there can be no assurances that the price of Dash will not significantly decrease due to its price volatility or that the Dash could be converted into USD (or any other fiat currency) at that time.
