“With DeFi, different Blockchains are finally coming together. I am very excited about this partnership as it provides DASH users the benefits of DeFi applications such as lending or borrowing, and Ethereum users with an easy way to use DASH’s established global payment ecosystem.”

The StakedDASH tokens can be generated without running a Masternode. Users only need to sign up and send their Dash holdings to StakeHound which automatically stakes these tokens to generate rewards. Users then receive ERC-20 versions of Dash cryptocurrency tokens onto their Ethereum wallets.

New Doors For Both Dash and ERC-20 Users

The minimum amount needed to stake through StakeHound is 1 Dash, worth $75.01 at press time. The StakedDASH tokens are tradable in top decentralized finance platforms such as UniSwap, Aave, Curve, and others, using the Ethereum or Radix networks. The announcement further noted that the wrapped token will soon launch by the end of the year.

“With Dash extending into DeFi as a result of this partnership, new doors, and use cases will be available to Dash cryptocurrency users as well as ERC-20 blockchain users. This functionality provides the ability for one to explore the world of DeFi or from the other side, the world of Dash while continuing to see returns through staked Dash.”
