Writhing In Economic Turmoil, Venezuela Becomes Fertile Climate For Digital Currency DASH

Venezuelan digital asset brokerage Cryptobuyer adds Dash to satisfy huge crypto demand

NEW YORK, NY – August 24, 2016 – Cryptobuyer, a Caracas, Venezuela-based cryptocurrency brokerage, today announced that Dash, a rapidly growing digital currency, has joined Bitcoin to its platform due to soaring demand. One of the world’s most actively traded cryptocurrencies, Dash is now available for purchase and sale through Cryptobuyer, and will be used as a payment network to benefit thousands of people suffering from Venezuela’s failing national economy. The new alliance enables Venezuelans, through a compliant brokerage, to use Dash and Bitcoin for remittances, everyday transactions, top up cell phones, recharge debit cards and make coin sales away from other currencies.

CEO of Cryptobuyer Jorge Farias said: “Cryptobuyer is a cryptocurrency and digital assets connector for companies and individuals that brings a range of services that will improve Venezuelans’ financial liberty. Our partnership with Dash is valuable, especially for customers using unstable fiat currencies, and the perfect example can be found in Venezuela right now. Alternatives for accessing money without traditional banks are gaining traction fast, and we are incredibly confident that Dash will flourish in this economy. From a phone credit recharge for a friend to the payment of credit cards and TV subscriptions, Cryptobuyer makes Bitcoin and Dash a reality in daily life and keeps offering incredible financial benefits without the need for a bank account.”

Venezuela is a country that has seen major cryptocurrency adoption in the wake of triple-digit inflation, capital controls, devaluation, and critical goods shortages. The national currency of Venezuela, the Bolivar, has dropped against the USD by nearly 40% in a year.

Dash VP of Business Development Daniel Diaz said: “With Venezuelans entrenched in political and economic turmoil, we simply wanted to give them another option to make life easier. Dash is stable, safe and holds its value extremely well. Cryptobuyer will help Dash take a step towards offering real services to regular people that are not just digital currency investors, so it really opens the door for us to fulfill our vision of making a tangible difference in places where digital currencies can help the most. Dash is proud to support pioneering, driven Venezuelans like the Cryptobuyer team who are making a difference through entrepreneurship and technology.”

Dash is a decentralized form of digital cash that can be spent online and at merchants and service providers worldwide. Dash is currently the 7th most valued cryptocurrency worldwide, with a market cap of nearly $90 million. Dash is managed by a self-funded, self-governed organization comprised of over 15,000 users, moving well over a million dollars worth of currency across the network every 24 hours.

For Latin Americans with no access to a phone or a computer, Dash and Bitcoin will be accessible through a local partner of Cryptobuyer, TigoCTM, who provide convenient Crypto Teller Machines allowing immediate cash transactions and a unique and innovative remittance corridor. Since founding earlier this year, Cryptobuyer has accrued thousands of users in Venezuela, Brazil, Panama, Chile and Colombia.

Cryptobuyer’s Legal Director & COO Mariana León Mármol added: “Cryptobuyer is the first platform in Venezuela that currently operates while fulfilling all KYC, AML and taxation obligations. It is a fundamental element of our services to preserve the origin of funds for investors, credit card users and remittance clients.”

Services like Western Union and Moneygram closed operations in Venezuela due to the exchange control regime enacted in 2005, leaving a huge necessity related to remittance and payments in foreign currencies unattended. Cryptobuyer today offers a solution using intellectual property assets to transfer value that can effectively serve such needs within the Venezuelan legal framework.

Partnership allows users to securely hold and send Dash seamlessly over Mycelium

New York, NY – July 21, 2016 – Mycelium, one of the world’s first and top rated software wallets, has today announced its integration with Dash, an open source, decentralized digital currency. The integration allows Mycelium users to buy, sell and hold Dash, whose unique characteristics includes extremely low fees, advanced encryption, instant transactions, and optional payment privacy through pool mixing technology.

Dash currently has a market cap of $56 million, which is the eighth most valued cryptocurrency in the world. It’s managed by a self funded, self governed organization comprised of over 15,000 users, moving half a million dollars across the network every 24 hours. Transactions are verified by miners and the system is protected by 4,000 master nodes across the world. Dash’s in-built governance and funding system allows projects to be proposed and voted on by the community, and if approved, paid for directly from the blockchain.

Dash VP of Business Development Daniel Diaz said: “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’s integration of Dash will come into effect inOctober. It aligns with their current wallet redesign, where they are implementing a more modular and simpler system to support even more open source technologies. As such, they are switching from their proprietary BitLib library to the much more popular BitcoinJ.

Mycelium CEO Alexander Kuzmin said: “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 multicurrency 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, its our goal to give customers a mainstream, easily adaptable digital wallet that will stand the test of time.”

Alongside their acclaimed wallet, Mycelium developed the revolutionary Swish, a 21st century order automation system for restaurants that reduces error, fraud, and cost, as well as Gear, a set of online business solutions designed to help businesses move to bitcoin and facilitate safer deals through escrow.
