Dash, a cryptocurrency for payments and e-commerce, has announced that Uphold, a digital money platform, has been integrated into the Dash Wallet. The integration will enable Dash Wallet users to onboard an Uphold account and instantly buy and sell Dash from the Dash Wallet itself. The Uphold feature is currently available on Android wallets, with iPhone availability on its way.

“Uphold has been a tremendous partner for us, providing users with a streamlined option for acquiring Dash,” Dash Core Group CEO Ryan Taylor said. “With this wallet integration, users can acquire and use Dash easier than ever. Our goal of achieving widespread adoption can only be made possible by making the user experience as easy and intuitive as possible, and Uphold continues to be an important partner in making the Dash experience one that can be easily accessed by anyone.”

This integration follows Dash and Uphold’s partnership in 2017, when Dash and its instant transaction feature InstantSend were added to Uphold’s digital money platform. Since its inception in 2015, Uphold has facilitated more than $4 billion USD of transactions. Uphold also enables conversion to precious metals including silver, gold, platinum, and palladium, and runs an advanced API that can leverage Dash’s upcoming decentralized payments system, Evolution.

“What we like about Dash is its commitment to driving adoption across the globe with more and more instances of real world use cases involving Dash payments,” Uphold CRO Robin O’Connell said. “Uphold’s integration with the Dash Wallet helps increase Dash usability. Now Dash users will have more ways to add funds to the Dash wallet with Uphold which will in turn make it easier to spend with Dash.”
