Dash Reaches New All Time High!

Dash continues to rise!

Recently, Dash has become one of the strongest cryptocurrencies worldwide. It continues to prove its spot in the industry as it becomes more and more relevant to the masses. It has become one of the fastest-rising cryptocurrencies worldwide!

Dash reached a new all-time high this week as Bitcoin traders sold off their profits.

On Wednesday, Dash reached a new high of $233, with a corresponding market cap of $1.74 billion. This tops the previous brief high of $213 about three weeks prior, which quickly subsided to just below $200, where it has remained over the past few weeks. The all-time high prior to this week was $228 for a short moment during the first week of July. Although this is the highest USD value for Dash to date, its present rate of 0.053 Bitcoin is slightly under half its all-time high in March of 0.12, when Bitcoin was encountering significant scaling issues.

Vast majority of trading volume from Bitcoin and Korea

Of Dash’s trading volume during this recent spike, nearly half has come from Bitcoin trading pairs. This indicates that Bitcoin traders are reinvesting their gains into Dash. Since the August 1st chain split giving birth to Bitcoin Cash, the price of Bitcoin has risen from around $2,800 per coin to its present-day $4,313. This significant gain no doubt accounts for much of those profits pouring into Dash, aiding with the price surge.

A close second contender in trading volume is the South Korean won, accounting for over 30% of volume. In recent months, trading from Korea, particularly the Bithumb exchange, has remained the single largest source of volume for Dash. At present, Bitcoin and won trades combined 78%, the vast majority of Dash trading volume.

The ongoing scaling debate may provoke future market responses

The debate on how to scale cryptocurrency properly continues after the Bitcoin chain split, with each side getting closer to testing its respective approach. Bitcoin is moving closer to deploying lightning networks for off-chain scaling as fees continue to spikeclose to pre-split levels. Meanwhile, Bitcoin Cash has mined many blocks in excess of one megabyte, including three about 4mb large and two in excess of that size, including an 8mb block. This will test the viability of the large-block approach to on-chain scaling, and based on its success (or failure), the market may respond accordingly. Dash is firmly in the on-chain scaling camp, with blocks larger than 400mb in the scaling roadmap, and a success for similar large-block scaling initiatives could lead additional credence to Dash’s future.
