Dash has been one of the secret tips in the crypto scene for the last two to three years.
Meanwhile, this has also been reflected in a substantial price rise up to 1200 USD per coin. Originally, Dash has been launched under the name of XCoin and Darkcoin as an open-source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and offers a similar design and functionality as Bitcoin.
Unlike Bitcoin however, the specific Dash Full Nodes (these are servers that are constantly online and hold the complete blockchain) are rewarded for their services with 45% of block rewards, just as much as the miners receive.
As a result, in the future the masternodes can afford even more costly operation of network nodes. The remaining 10% can be invested in development and marketing projects or otherwise by the Dash network.
