Launch and Masternodes

Financial freedom, built on masternodes
Dash was launched by Evan Duffield with the unique X11 hashing algorithm as its defining feature, and initial development focused on dynamic adjustment of mining difficulty, known as Dark Gravity Wave. This was soon followed by masternodes, providing a powerful and incentivized set of full nodes which form a backbone for the network and offer services to users. Sporks were released to help deliver a smooth release process of new features, without hard-forking the network, and finally PrivateSend was released to make Dash a truly fungible currency.
