Dash Launches Groundbreaking DashDirect Consumer App Allowing for the Dash Cryptocurrency to be Accepted at Over 155,000 Retail Locations

We are proud to announce the launch of DashDirect, an instant-savings retail app that allows Dash to be spent at a variety of national chains with over 155,000 merchant in-store locations and more than 125 online retailers within the United States.

Dash is pleased to announce the launch of a unique retail app - DashDirect - potentially saving users up to 12% on purchases and allowing them to spend their Dash cryptocurrency at the same time. Dash is continuing to lead the cryptocurrency space in terms of retail adoption. DashDirect was made possible with an investment from the Dash Investment Foundation and built by CrayPay, an Arizona-based fintech company in partnership with Dash Core Group. This application is entirely customer-focused, simple to use, and allows interested parties to dip their toes in this evolving industry by allowing them to use their coins via an everyday and familiar behavior - shopping.
Users can pay with Dash for exclusive discounts on everyday purchases at national chain retailers they already know and love. Save with the special DashDirect discount at a myriad of nationwide American retailers and online merchants including Best Buy, DoorDash, CVS, Lowe's, Staples, The Home Depot, Autozone, GameStop, Chili's, Ulta, Chipotle, Subway, American Eagle, and many more. Artisan and small mom & pop shops are on the app, as well. Now, one has a real reason to actually use crypto instead of only holding it in a wallet as a store of value.

Discount amounts for each retailer will evolve and increase over time as overall app usage increases. All Dash payments with DashDirect are optimized to be instant and secure. DashDirect is non-custodial; users control and manage 100% of the Dash they own with no third parties involved. The official Dash wallet is used to facilitate Dash transactions to send a payment from a user's Dash wallet from their available balance easily with user verification to approve the use of funds. There's no waiting and no currency exchange fees.

According to the CoinMap.org merchant directory - the most extensive globally - Bitcoin is accepted (as of June 2021) at 22,883 venues worldwide. In comparison, DashDirect enables users to identify nearly seven times more locations than this global reported total at which they can spend and save instantly.
The DashDirect app has many features with a keen focus on ease of use. For instance, users may optionally include tips when paying at the many supported restaurants. The user dashboard allows users to keep track of their spending habits and saving totals. Users can even purchase digital gift cards for friends and family within the app and send them instantly via email with a custom message.
