Dash is Digital Cash. When Evan Duffield launched Dash, it included so many new innovations that almost all of the altcoins from the same generation borrowed the same ideas and even the same code. The first main goal of Evan was to create a compeltely anonymous digital coin. He succeeded in doing this and has gone on to add more new features than any other digital coin project in the spotlight today. There are some innovations that exist only in Dash, for example: it has a three tiered network and its own built-in system of network governance.
