Stash is a next generation open source digital currency for local and international transactions. A key advantage of Stash is that it solves numerous problems being encountered by other cryptocurrencies. Stash does this by bringing together many ground-breaking blockchain technologies while using the gold standard in cryptocurrency privacy.
In addition to comprising critical features for an efficiently functioning open decentralized autonomous network (ODAN) such as self-governance and self-funding, Stash also incorporates instantaneous transactions (StashSwift), increased network capacity, low transaction fees and state-of-the-art zero-knowledge cryptography.
Unlike other methods for cryptocurrency privacy that rely on obscuring the linkage between transactions, Stash encrypts transactions on the blockchain. This allows for the amount, origin and payment destination to stay hidden while still verifying the transfer of funds under the network’s consensus rules using zk-SNARK proofs.
