Ankerpay is providing its users with the best possible Dash experience, using InstantSend to quickly complete purchases. Their solution makes it easy for merchants to accept Dash while reserving the option to receive fiat.
Dash has thrived in complex markets where our technology and strategies help address payments and remittance issues.”

“Not only will people be able to pay for goods and services but they’ll have access to purchasing Dash directly, circumventing the need for traditional banking infrastructure, a game-changer for the millions of marginalized unbanked. Something unimaginable not too long ago,” Les added.
