Integration extends Dash’s availability while making crypto experiences more affordable
Scottsdale, Ariz. — August 14, 2019 — Dash, the top digital currency for payments and e-commerce, announced that Uphold has removed withdrawal fees associated with Dash and has expanded integration to support Dash Wallet for iOS. The integration enables Dash Wallet users to create an Uphold account, easily buy and sell Dash from within the Dash Wallet all with no Dash network withdrawal fees. Customers can also purchase using debit or credit cards, or with funds directly from a bank account in the United States and European Union.
The integration’s expansion into iOS along with the removal of DASH network withdrawal fees creates a seamless experience for digital currency users and makes the service even more accessible than before. The removal of fees is especially important for communities in parts of the world that are struggling with hyperinflation and economic crisis and use Dash as their currency of choice.
“This integration simplifies how users transact with Dash and brings us one step closer to our goal of widespread adoption,” said Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core Group. “InstantSend has been a key feature of Dash on Uphold, allowing for quick movement of Dash into and out of the platform. Its availability to both Android and iOS users without withdrawal fees means that Dash is even more affordable and accessible than ever.”
Uphold has eliminated the $2.99 flat-rate fee charged to customers when withdrawing DASH from its platform to the Dash blockchain. Now, only the Dash network fees remain, which are less than one U.S. cent. Since its inception in 2013, Uphold has facilitated nearly $5 billion USD of transactions, making it easy for users to acquire and transfer over 30 cryptocurrencies and traditional currencies such as USD, Euro, and many others.
“Dash has been a long time partner of Uphold and we work closely with them to optimize usability. These updates to our integration make it easier and less expensive for users to pay with Dash in real-world scenarios, increasing Dash’s usability and streamlining the user experience,” said Uphold CRO, Robin O’Connell.
