60% Currency Surge Not Stopped By Crypto Market Turmoil
Among a sea of red, Dash stood out as one of the day’s biggest gainers, up over 60 percent at its peak.
Earlier this year, Dash received some positive attention from big blockers Roger Ver and Charlie Shrem.
Rather than deploying payment channels like Bitcoin’s experimental Lightning Network or Ethereum’s planned Raiden Network, Dash intends to use ultra-large blocks.
Whether due to pump and dump teams or because of sudden appreciation of the project’s prospects, Dash has experienced an unprecedented surge while the overall market dropped.
Of the top 10 currencies by market capitalization, Dash is up 33 percent, Ethereum is up four percent and Monero is up seven percent.
