Well look what we have here-some more Dash news!

Dash is by now known to be the world’s sixth most valuable cryptocurrency, and it has partnered with BlockCypher to increase enterprise integration.

BlockCypher serves to make life easier for companies when interfacing with Dash and integrating backend blockchain infrastructure.

This move is one of Dash’s most significant steps to mainstream adoption and enables businesses to easily adopt Dash with confidence, security, and ease. BlockCypher, the leading Blockchain Web Services provider already works with industry leaders like the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Abra, Xapo, and Deloitte.

This most recent development with Dash with enable best in class APIs for companies to integrate Dash into their offering.

“The partnership with BlockCypher is a prerequisite for mainstream adoption and enterprise-scale integration by institutions,” said Daniel Diaz, Dash VP of Business Development. “Having a trusted, industry proven API service provider is a huge win for the Dash community. We are thrilled to be working with BlockCypher.”

Catheryne Nicholson, CEO of BlockCypher, said, “Dash is an example of how alternative cryptocurrencies are addressing new market needs. For example, Dash’s governance model preempts the gridlock that protocols such as Bitcoin are facing. Its structure of voting and investment provide a unique way of driving improvements.”

Diaz added, “Wallets, merchants and exchanges have a choice to either run nodes or work with an API service to implement Dash, and merchants can seamlessly integrate it as a method of payment without needing to know the complicated tech behind it. Think of it like this: Dash is one side of the river bank, and big business is the other. The water in between is a swirling mass of independent software stacks, interfacing tools, servers, nodes, libraries, technical jargon and confusion that looks far too dangerous to cross. BlockCypher is the bridge.”

Walter Salmeri, Business Development Manager for BitInka, a South American exchange and wallet, added, “We are very excited about adding Dash into our platform via BlockCypher. This is a great opportunity for our users, especially in the LATAM region. The technical teams are working closely to bring this advantage to all BitInka users who wish to trade Dash on our robust and secure platform.”
