Dash is partnering with BlockCypher to provide grants to businesses seeking to integrate with blockchain technology, Dash in particular.

The grant will provide integration, consulting, and support for companies wishing to start using blockchain technology. According to Dash Core CEO Ryan Taylor, this grant will essentially codify ongoing practices for assisting businesses in integration cryptocurrency.

“The Dash Core Group has a history of providing support for businesses seeking to integrate Dash, but now we can do so in an official, mutually beneficial way. BlockCypher is a wonderful partner for Dash and has been instrumental in attracting new businesses to leverage our network; this program simply extends our support in a structured way to the numerous leads BlockCypher generates for the network.

Our grant program encourages businesses to commit to blockchain and Dash in particular, because Dash has extremely high scalability potential. The projects we are funding accelerate this commitment and help highlight the advantages of working with Dash compared with other public blockchains.”

The ongoing benefits of the BlockCypher partnership

The Dash network’s strategic partnership with BlockCypher has led to numerous integrations for Dash, including BitInka, Alt36, Kraken, and many more. The addition of this grant in particular will pave the way for a host of new integrations and collaborations for the Dash network.

One beneficiary of this partnership is Patientory, a healthcare blockchain platform, which recently integrated Dash as part of this new grant. According to Chrissa McFarlane, Patientory’s CEO, the partnership will allow them to break new ground in the healthcare field.

“We are excited to work with Dash and BlockCypher. Using BlockCypher’s web services, we will be the first healthcare blockchain to show interoperability between blockchain networks. This is a major leap forward for how blockchains can be used to process healthcare claims payments.”

Dash’s adoption soon to reach critical mass

The development and strengthening of Dash’s ecosystem continues to grow in the run-up to the first stages of the mass-market targeting Evolution upgrade, set for wide release June 2018. At time of writing, nearly 300 businesses around the world accept Dash so far, with many more rapidly on the way. This massive adoption lead over other top cryptocurrencies may prove decisive in selecting the top digital currency payment system.
