Dash Increases Presence with Pubs, Festival Payment System

Dash continues to expand its presence in the world of small payments. Lately, it added 7,000 Irish pubs to its payment system. The contactless card system plans to rival Visa with smaller fees.

Dash just expanded its presence by partnering with the Festy payment service to reach 7,000 Irish pubs, revealed the Festy project Twitter page. With this, Dash increases its user base by handling entertainment and festival payments.

"Don’t let the Festy name fool you. Festy is not just a payment solution for festivals it’s also perfectly suited as a point of sale solution that can be utilised for a number of industries such as the hospitality sector," announced Dash Force News.

Festy is a small-payments, preloaded card that will now also offer the option to carry DASH, or digital cash. The addition of the tool strengthens the position of Dash, which recently partnered with Wirex for yet another card-based mode of payment.

In a recent portfolio report, Dash also updated users on its development status, which includes a drive to expand the team and work on updates and improvements faster. This would mitigate the major risks for the project, by improving issues faster.

The DASH market price sank a bit, pressured by general market sentiment. DASH sank toward $293, almost flat in the past seven days, but showing signs of recovery.

DASH will also be added soon to BitFlyer, the leading Japanese exchange, along with Monero and zCash.
