Las Vegas, NV — Dash, the leading cryptocurrency for payments and e-commerce, has announced that Uphold, the leading digital money platform, has been integrated into the Dash Wallet. The integration will enable Dash Wallet users to onboard an Uphold account and instantly buy and sell Dash from the Dash Wallet itself, meaning users will not have to use another app or cryptocurrency exchange for these transactions. This creates a seamless and enhanced user experience, and allows users to buy and sell Dash easily through the push of a few buttons.
This is a first-of-its-kind integration, demonstrating Dash’s recognition of the importance that a seamless UX has for its users and future adoption. The Uphold feature is currently available on Android wallets, and will soon be available on iPhone as well.
Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core Group, said: “Uphold has been a tremendous partner for us, providing users with a streamlined option for acquiring Dash. With this wallet integration, users can acquire and use Dash easier than ever. Our goal of achieving widespread adoption can only be made possible by making the user experience as easy and intuitive as possible, and Uphold continues to be an important partner in making the Dash experience one that can be easily accessed by anyone.”
This integration follows Dash and Uphold’s partnership in 2017, when Dash and its instant transaction feature InstantSend were added to Uphold’s rapidly growing digital money platform. Since its inception in 2015, Uphold has facilitated over $4 billion USD of transactions, making it easy for users to acquire and transfer both cryptocurrencies and traditional currencies such as the USD, Euro, and many others. Uphold also enables conversion to precious metals including silver, gold, platinum, and palladium, and runs an advanced API that can leverage Dash’s upcoming decentralized payments system, Evolution.
Uphold CRO, Robin O’Connell, said: “What we like about Dash is its commitment to driving adoption across the Globe with more and more instances of real world use cases involving Dash payments. Uphold’s integration with the Dash Wallet helps increase Dash usability. Now Dash users will have more ways to add funds to the Dash wallet with Uphold which will in turn make it easier to spend with Dash.”
