Dash Core Group, the US-incorporated company leading the development of the peer-to-peer (P2P) payment platform and cryptocurrency Dash, has partnered with virtual reality (VR) app Aircoins to allow users to hunt, collect and send Dash cryptocurrency in an augmented reality (AR) environment, similarly to the Pokemon Go mobile game, the organization said on Thursday.
Commenting on the partnership announcement, Ernesto Contreras, business development manager for Latin American at Dash Core Group, said the collaboration with Aircoins will allow Dash to reach new markets. The new application of the Dash cryptocurrency will open up a new engagement model and user experience, he said.
“As interest and adoption around AR and cryptocurrency continues to increase, merging the two through a fun game is an exciting step for both technologies,” Contreras said. “AR is poised for exceptional growth and together Dash and Aircoins are primed to engage users along that journey.”
