It’s not secret that Dash has pioneered some of the biggest innovations in the space, many of them relatively unheralded until recently. However, the crypto world is starting to take notice in a big way.

And that’s not necessarily good for Dash. Many of the problems that Dash sought to avoid have started to befall competitors, and while that might seem like a great “hah, told you so” moment, the great risk is that they will see how Dash avoided their mistakes, take the same path without giving credit, and ride on to victory using tech that someone else came up with.

There’s a coming “copyclysm” just around the corner, and Dash won’t necessarily make it out alive. Most of Dash’s innovations will become the only path forward for other projects Many of the advantages Dash has developed over other projects are likely to be unique for some time, such as the intricacies of the masternode network and the use of sporks to smooth upgrades.

Others, however, may be implemented by other projects sooner than we might think. This isn’t because of some deliberate action of recognizing what Dash has done right and seeking to do the same, but because of the natural roadblocks that incomplete projects will face.

Without recurring funding for development, all but the largest projects will struggle to innovate long-term, and remain at risk of undue outside influence from funding corporations or other entities, and without effective governance mechanisms the entire cryptospace can be bogged down with infighting over the smallest disagreements. Because of this, many coins may simply be forced to implement a treasury and governance or else fail. Read more from…
