Dash Upgrades Blockchain Core In Negate Vulnerabilities
Dash has unveiled Dash Core v0.14.0.3, another updated version of its wallet and P2P client for the native cryptocurrency DASH in consideration to the sudden rise and fall in transaction volume on its mainnet.
The information was revealed through an official blog post. Dash faced an attack or some kind of stress trial initiated by groups unrelated to the core team. The post stated that “the upgrade is strongly recommended for all Masternodes and is also recommended for all users, exchanges, partners and full node operators.”
The coder later on identified problems such as mempools not being cleared, a 1MB limit on blocks, crash of masternode, ban of masternodes by other masternodes and postponed listing of trades on certain blocks.
Dash Core version 0.14.0.3 is basically created to resolve some of the problems and include modifications such as enhancements to the use of database space and several signing troubles.
By the end of 2018, a US based fast food restaurant chain named Church’s Chicken started accepting payments in DASH at its South American branches in Venezuela. Presently, there are 10 Church’s Chicken restaurants in Venezuela and all of them accept DASH as payment.
At the time of announcing the decision to accept DASH, the restaurant claimed that it is the world’s first fast food restaurant to accept crypto payments.
Similarly, an Israeli looted more than $9 million in DASH from his roommate. Afek Zard took 74,990.74 DASH from Alexei Yaromenko, an early crypto investor.
Zard was charged with stealing the cryptocurrency of Yaromenko and transferring to addresses owned by him. Furthermore, he was blamed of money laundering and “penetration of a computer to commit an offense.”
