Dash, one of the world's leading digital currency for payments, has released an officially approved Apple wallet with InstantSend support. Now the wallet is available for download in the App Store.

In fact, the company has now formally reversed an August 2016 decision to deny entry to the App Store for applications integrating Dash, including the official Dash wallet.

As Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core, reports, Dash continues to expand its user base and ecosystem of services, that's why it is critical for the users to have an access to their Dash funds on a variety of platforms, especially mobile devices. Dash’s instant payments make Dash ideal for point-of-sale situations, which means mobile phone support for all of our users is a must.

As it turned out, several Dash-integrated wallets have been submitted to the App Store since 2015, but the majority of them were rejected.

Apple is in a difficult position. Ultimately, they are attempting to look out for user safety by preventing less reputable projects from accessing the Apple Store ecosystem ... The fact that Apple now recognizes the increased demand and importance of Dash speaks to the progress we’ve made in reaching larger and larger audiences.

The final step of the appeal process was a six-page written report submitted to the App Store at the beginning of June, informing Apple of Dash’s surge in popularity, growth in value and demand, ability to scale, and its improvements upon bitcoin as a consumer’s e-commerce currency of choice.

The software developer of the privacy-oriented cryptocurrency network Dash, the Dash Core Group, was forced to make some difficult financial decisions. So, on March 7, the company fire 8% of the stuff, including the strategic director and director of business development. This is reported by The Block.

Note that the remaining employees of the Dash Core Group voluntarily refused wages and bonuses to support the existence of the organization.

According to CEO Ryan Taylor, cuts will affect only certain parts of the company in order to avoid complete collapse.

The organization’s leadership claims that more than six months ago, a moratorium was imposed on hiring new people, and the spending policy remains conservative.

It is worth adding that Dash is a fork of Litecoin, which appeared in 2014. The company did not conduct an ICO, and the only source of income is 10% of the mining, divided between the miners and masternodes. Thus, the bear market has quite significantly affected the stability of the organization.

Recall that in November 2018, the Dash Text service was launched in Venezuela, which allows you to send transactions via mobile phones using text messages. Then the event had a positive effect on the asset quotes.
