Welcome to Dash School!

Digital currency doesn’t have to be intimidating. Learn about Dash with Amanda B. Johnson!

We in the Dash community understand that the concept of digital currency can be quite a lot to understand for the average person. We’ve spent many a Christmas dinner trying to explain it to our loved ones, and had quite the time! Well, now we have created the ultimate resource to explain digital currency (specifically Dash) to anyone in an easy to understand manner. Dash’s own Amanda B. Johnson takes the role of teacher in this fantastic series, which at the end you will have a great understanding of this fantastic technology.

And your head won’t hurt, we promise!

Lesson #1: What is a blockchain?

Maybe you saw the word on the cover of The Economist. Or maybe you’ve seen it dropped on Bloomberg, Yahoo Finance, or even Wired. Wherever you heard it, it probably wasn’t explained to you very well. Let Amanda B. Johnson introduce you to the concept without using technical jargon or buzzwords in your first lesson.

Lesson #2: How does a blockchain work?

So now you get the basics of what a blockchain is — but how does it do what we say it does? Who gets to “write” to it, when, and why? How is a blockchain different from a good ol’ fashioned database? Amanda B. Johnson takes you there in your second lesson!

Lesson #3: How can a blockchain be a monetary system?

You now understand the basics of a blockchain and how it functions — now what does that have to do with money? What is this business about blockchain networks being able to natively offer both currency and payments? Amanda B. Johnson explains in your third lesson!

Lesson #4: How is Dash’s blockchain funded & governed?

Now that you grasp how a blockchain network can offer money-as-a-service, learn the various ways that Dash’s is organized — why and how we function as a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) to serve up monetary services to customers. Amanda B. Johnson takes you there in lesson #4.

Lesson #5: How does Dash offer instant and private payments?

Did you know that Dash’s blockchain is the only one which offers both instant and private payments? True story. Learn how our unique “masternodes” make this possible in your fifth lesson, hosted by Amanda B. Johnson.

Lesson #6: How can digital cash become accessible to all?

So now that you get the full story — how Dash works — you want to know how we plan on making this stuff usable to the average consumer. Glad you asked! This sixth and final lesson of Dash School, hosted by Amanda B. Johnson, introduces “Evolution”: the product we predict will put digital cash into the hands of the average person for the first time.

So now you can be considered a Dash connoisseur, ready to delve into the decentralized world of Dash, digital cash. There are many forums around for you to join and start involving yourself in the process of getting the word out there, but the best one out there is Dash Nation Slack, the sister site to this one.
