A dysfunctional governance method is a reason why Dash has fallen in ranks, according to the Dash nation founder. In our today’s DASH news, we read more about the fall of Dash.
The community leaders of the cryptocurrency project suggested that Dash fell through the ranks because of the poor and dysfunctional governance. The community is reforming the entire governance system now and the funding as well. Dash is now the 28th largest coin with a market cap of $740 million.
The founder of Dash Nation Cristopher Carruthers argued that the Dash network has to reform its governance system and block the reward distribution strategy to return to the top-ten position in the near future. His comments are based on the statements Ryan Taylor made, who is the CEO of the Dash Core Group back in 2019. Taylor stated that he believes that the economics of the project which is built into the network, causes a huge destabilization of its price. Carruthers said that the prices fell because the miners were being paid too much. The improvements that the miners are responsible for such as InstaSend and Chainlocks were not worth the share of the block rewards which are being spent.
The community has now voted for a new policy. In the next few years, Dash will allocate the rewards between the miners and the masternodes at a ratio of 60% to 40% with the larger share going to the masternodes. Carruthers said that the community is debating how the rewards will be allocated to the Dash treasury which funds the partnerships and developments as well as other activities. This will likely favor either the masternodes or the miners.
What is the Dash FastPass Network?

Contrary to his arguments, the easiest explanation for the network’s decline is the fact that Dash is aging. The project was founded in 2014 and its initial hype seems to be wearing off. In the past few years, many new coins took the spotlight such as Chainlink and Polkadot. With the competition rising, it’s not clear that the better funding allocation and governance will create more demand for the cryptocurrency. With its governance method not being its strong side, changes to the funding may not influence the investors a lot.
Despite the decline, however, the project remains popular with a market cap of $740 million.
