12.1 Update

We are launching a new software release on the network. Everyone needs to update to the new version, including ordinary users, pools, miners, and masternodes. All budget proposals must be resubmitted into the system as well. Note - Enforcement will be turned off during this upgrade, so masternodes that do not update will quickly stop being paid.

What is Evolution

Dash Evolution will take all the complexity out of digital currency, making it as easy to pay with Dash as it is to pay with PayPal. The advantage is that, unlike PayPal, Dash Evolution will be completely decentralized and not-for-profit.

An all-powerful toolset for Dash Dash’s new Sentinel technology is the engine that will power Dash Evolution. It’s extremely powerful and flexible, which will allow much easier network updates. Additionally, Sentinel can be customized to create numerous new applications that will run on the network. It’s possible to create digital companies, for instance, using Sentinel.



In January 2016 we released an early Evolution prototype based on Electrum. Since then, we have been creating reams of documentation and have completely outlined the design goals and begun implementing them. The prototype was pretty basic, with user interaction limited to just paying a few friends and user data stored on a dev server, but at least it proved the concept. What we set out to do then was to design and prototype all the key technologies that would make these functions work in a purely P2P way, with data secured on the Dash blockchain and accessible from anywhere on any device, with integrated SPV based security and no centralized intermediary services required, and using the most common and censorship resistant protocol available – HTTP(S)

Network Stats


Launching a new software release on the network requires that all budget proposals be re-submitted into the system. Due to the timing of superblocks, we have a short window to launch, near the beginning of the month. In order to ensure we launch the most stable possible version of the software without interfering with the budget system, we would like to hold off until early February to launch 12.1. Launch date: February 5th, 2017.
