It seems like investors and traders are getting tired of the Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash instability, and tend to turn their attention to other altcoins which seem more suitable. Judging by charts, it appears that they turn to Dash. The coin was hovering around the $289 mark on November 8, but has leapt almost %55 to $521 in the wake of the Bitcoin war.

What might have also lead to such a growth of coin price is that on November 8, cryptocurrency Dash has announced launch of a new software upgrade Dash Core 12.2 that aims at reducing its transaction fees to near zero. Moreover, it will double its network capacity. Regular Dash transactions will now cost less than a cent, and their InstantSend transactions will be reduced to 2.8 cents each, which is 215 times cheaper than Bitcoin transactions, which have a cost of about $6. On November 11, Dash Core 12.2.1 update was released.
