Dash, the privacy-focused cryptocurrency, has announced that it has formed an alliance with Ireland-based discount gift card platform BitCart to allow its users access to online savings at Amazon and hotels.com (the latter expected soon).
Dash VP of Business Development Daniel Diaz said: “One of the most important things we need to do to help cryptocurrency adoption grow is to give potential users a strong reason to overcome the technical hurdles and start using digital currencies every day. Offering a 20% discount on Amazon purchases is a powerful incentive for new users to try Dash out, learn about it, and most importantly, start realizing its benefits.”

CEO of BitCart Graham de Barra said: “Dash is an obvious addition to our payment options due to its scalability. It is the superior cryptocurrency for payments over any other cryptocurrency. There is nothing more exciting for me than the decentralization of the global finance system, which is currently inefficient and riddled with fraud. Dash allows our merchant platform to completely eliminate the chance of chargebacks, and it opens up more options to anyone in the world.”
“Customers can be from anywhere in the world, but currently most users are predominantly from the USA and Asia. With Bitcoin falling to 66% of the total market share, and Dash recently climbing to the fifth most valuable cryptocurrency, I have no doubt that our customer-base will increase with this implementation,” de Barra concluded.
Additionally, popular payments plugin CryptoWoo has also integrated Dash. This means that e-commerce websites that implement the plugin can now accept Dash as a method of payment, alongside Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Litecoin.
Finally, Venezuela-based cryptocurrency exchange CryptoBuyer has completed its integration of Dash. Now Venezuelans can use Dash and Bitcoin to make remittances, top up cell phones and recharge debit cards.
