Privacy-focused cryptocurrency Dash has been adopted by two new trading venues. BitPanda, formerly known as Coinimal, has added a buy option for Dash on its online brokerage, while Moscow’s MaRSe exchanger, has integrated the cryptocurrency in its service.
Headquartered in the heart of Moscow, off-line exchanger MaRSe previously worked exclusively with Bitcoin, but added Dash due to community demand. Russians are now able buy and sell Dash for rubles, with the exchange rate tied to BTC-e.
VP of Dash Business Development Daniel Diaz said: “We are very excited about Dash being added to BitPanda and to MaRSe. We are focused on improving access to Dash for users across the planet and it’s exciting to see spikes in demand from places like Europe and Russia.

Firstly, BitPanda is the type of high quality broker we need on the Dash ecosystem; they offer multiple payment options as well as Bitcoin and Ethereum integration so it’s huge news for European users. Secondly, MaRSe is the largest and most reputable Russian exchange for bitcoin and now Dash, so we expect trading volumes to increase.”
BitPanda CEO Eric Demuth said: “Recently we observed a significant increase in demand within our customer base for Dash. We carefully observe the market before we add a new technology to our platform. Continuous development as well as a stable community are important parameters for us. Therefore we have decided to add Dash on BitPanda.”
The partnership with BitPanda will allow Europeans to purchase Dash online with Visa, Mastercard, Sofort, SEPA, Neteller, Skrill and EPS/Giropay.
