Dash, the privacy-focused cryptocurrency, has partnered with Blockchain Web Services provider BlockCypher to increase enterprise integration via APIs. BlockCypher, which works with the likes of the US Department of Homeland Security, Xapo, and Deloitte, now makes it easy for companies to interface with Dash.
Catheryne Nicholson, CEO of BlockCypher, said: “Dash is an example of how alternative cryptocurrencies are addressing new market needs. For example, Dash’s governance model preempts the gridlock that protocols such as Bitcoin are facing. Its structure of voting and investment provide a unique way of driving improvements.”
“The partnership with BlockCypher is a prerequisite for mainstream adoption and enterprise-scale integration by institutions,” said Daniel Diaz, Dash VP of Business Development. “Having a trusted, industry proven API service provider is a huge win for the Dash community. We are thrilled to be working with BlockCypher.”
“Wallets, merchants and exchanges have a choice to either run nodes or work with an API service to implement Dash, and merchants can seamlessly integrate it as a method of payment without needing to know the complicated tech behind it. Think of it like this: Dash is one side of the river bank, and big business is the other. The water in between is a swirling mass of independent software stacks, interfacing tools, servers, nodes, libraries, technical jargon and confusion that looks far too dangerous to cross. BlockCypher is the bridge.”
Karen Hsu, Head of Growth for BlockCypher, added: “As more companies create applications built for multiple blockchains, they must master each blockchain’s protocol changes, which can be very complex. BlockCypher takes care of those intricacies so that companies can focus on their business applications.”
