Dash Nation on Discord reaches 8,000 members!

Dash and its community has really grown from their humble beginnings. The journey started with the ANN thread on BitcoinTalk, and the IRC channel. While some used IRC, that popular BCT thread (the most viewed thread on the website) used to be the only communication channel for the less technical-minded in the community.

Just like using Dash, talking about Dash gained in popularity. The Dash Forum was created, offering another, larger outlet for Dash ideas. Dashpay subreddit was created, adding another style of communication to the ecosystem. Growth was apparent every time a new forum was created.

Dash Forum is an important communication tool for the Dash community.

Then Slack became a popular platform for communication for cryptocurrencies. A Dash community Slack channel was created, and ran for awhile. Personnel problems led to the demise of this channel, and that’s the first appearance of the entity known as Dash Nation.

Fleeing the problems of the original Dash Chat Slack, the community settled into the Dash Nation Slack channel. An atmosphere of inclusiveness, respect, and positivity was created and encouraged. All was going well, however cracks began to appear in the platform itself, and its ability to handle open communities. Moderation tools were weak at best, and crypto communities were not allowed to accept any further members.

Dash Nation stands for respect, inclusiveness, and progress. It provides the environment needed for Dash to thrive.

That was not an acceptable situation. A community that seeks to include the entire world (mass adoption) could not allow a platform to stifle accepting new members. After researching alternatives, it was determined that Slack-alternative Discord offered the best environment to nurture the community and promote results.

After leaving Slack with a membership of approximately 2.5k, we started Dash Nation on Discord. It took awhile to gain our membership back. We continued to provide a semi-professional atmosphere for ideas and productivity to thrive. A little over a year later we now have surpassed 8,000 members!
