Hey everyone! We have some big ideas that we think the Dash community will love, and we'd like to share them here as a pre-proposal to get your feedback and make this project the best it can be. About Us Bitaccess is an Ottawa, Canada-based cryptocurrency and blockchain services company. As one of the first companies to manufacture Bitcoin Teller Machines (BTMs), we take pride in providing easy access to Bitcoin for customers in 15 countries. We’re also proud to currently power the largest BTM network in the United States. In addition to this, we’ve recently launched a new product, Faa.st, an api designed to allow fast, safe, and private cryptocurrency exchange. Using our software, users can exchange 100+ cryptocurrencies directly from their own wallets without needing to create an account. We plan to add support for all major blockchains to make Faa.st the most comprehensive crypto trading tool in the industry. So, why are we telling you all this? We consider Dash to be an important project that closely aligns with one of our core values: respect for privacy. It is our hope that we can quickly integrate Dash onto the Faast instant exchange platform, and in doing so, drive Dash adoption around the world through our Faa.st & BTM strategy described below. Phase 1: Faa.st Integration The first step in our strategy is adding support for Dash to our Faa.st product. This will allow users to swap Dash directly from their own Ledger, Trezor, or supported software wallet. No user accounts are required for Faa.st, which again makes Dash an excellent asset for this platform. Phase 2: BTMs Our vision is not simply to list Dash on Faa.st, (although that in itself would be fantastic). The next step in Faa.st’s evolution will be integration with BTMs around the world which run on our software. Deliverables: Open Source libraries to facilitate Dash Payments via Bip44 (similar to: https://www.npmjs.com/package/@faast/ethereum-payments, https://www.npmjs.com/package/bitcoin-segwit-payments, https://www.npmjs.com/package/bitcoin-cash-payments) Integration into the faa.st API - https://api.faa.st Integration into faast portfolio, allowing for instant purchasing of DASH on hardware wallets such as ledger & trezor - https://faa.st/portfolio Integration of DASH on our BTM software platform - https://bitaccessbtm.com While we’ve experienced great success supporting Bitcoin alone, our objective with incorporating Faa.st into our BTM software is to allow users a simple, easy and frictionless tool for buying and selling all supported cryptocurrencies with cash. We feel that Dash would be an excellent addition to our BTM product. Team & Qualifications— Why should you trust us?
