Dash recently announced the latest version of v12.3 network on their Twitter account. The new version of the open source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency was announced on 3rd July with new developments inclusive of PrivateSend, InstantSend, Dash network and Dash Evolution.
Dash has gained popularity in the industry for the quality of its transactions being prompt and private. It is a self-funded organization that owns a self-governed organizational structure.
A post from a Dash user on the website addressing the latest upgrade reads as follows:
“We are pleased to announce the release of Dash version 12.3, which improves InstantSend and lays additional foundation for Dash Evolution. The upgrade is complete, tested, and ready for release. Although ready now, as with past releases we feel it is prudent to wait until after the next superblock to officially release. EDIT: Version 12.3 will be generally available after the next superblock which occurs around 13:00 UT on July 3, 2018.”
Masternode operators, exchanges, pools, and explorers will need the updated version 12.3 to be able to continue receiving rewards. The upgrade will also include a new DevNets feature that will enable the creation of multiple independent DevNets to take place.
“Each devnet is identified by a name which is hardened into a “devnet genesis” block and is automatically positioned at height 1 block.”
The upgrade is built to lower the number of inputs that are designated to each wallet. User privacy is also said to have been improved by means of eliminating the merging together of small non-private inputs and decreased UTXO set size.
