Dash and Aircoins Join Forces to Power Cryptocurrency Treasure Hunt in Augmented Reality

NEW YORK, June 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dash, the top digital currency for payments and e-commerce, today announced a partnership with the leading cryptocurrency augmented reality (AR) app, Aircoins. By downloading the Aircoins app, users can hunt, collect and send Dash cryptocurrency worldwide alongside other Aircoins users in an AR environment.
