Blockchain Security Company BitGo Adds Dash (DASH), Stellar (XLM)

Blockchain Security Company BitGo Adds Dash (DASH), Stellar (XLM) DASH has already been supported while XLM to be adjoined soon, BitGo chief executive officer Mike Belshe explained.

US custodian BitGo has announced support for two new coins, Dash (DASH) and Stellar Lumens (XLM), the company’s founder and chief executive officer Mike Belshe told Fortune on Friday.

Dash was added last week because of its ability to make “instant payments” possible for institutional investors while XLM, which focuses on “global payments more for consumers,” will be adjoined in a couple of weeks.

Stablecoins pegged to US dollar have a significant potential like the several new projects including Circle’s USD Coin (USDC), Paxos Standard (PAX), and Gemini Dollar (GUSD) Belshe explained. However, the largest stablecoin, Tether (USDT) is something different, and there is “something wrong” as nobody knows the full story behind USDT, the CEO said.

Currently, BitGo supports eight coins Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), XRP (XRP), and Dash....
