A report said that Dash holders will soon be able to access a wide range of decentralized finance (DeFi) services through collaboration with StakeHound.

On October 19, it has been reported that tokens that are deposited with StakeHound will also earn network rewards through the Dash masternode system.

However, in order to take advantage of the burgeoning DeFi market, Dash holders must send tokens to StakeHound, which will then instantly generate and send back a wrapped ERC-20 representation called stakedDASH.

The report said that StakedDASH will be tradable and usable in major DeFi platforms such as Uniswap, Aave, Curve, and others, using the Ethereum or Radix networks. They will also be able to be converted back into the original Dash tokens at any point.

In the meantime, the Dash tokens held by StakeHound will be held in a masternode and earn the standard rate of network rewards, which will be issued to users as additional stakedDASH. This will enable Dash holders to gain the benefits of network staking, but without needing to lock up the 1,000 Dash necessary to create their own masternode. The minimum amount required to stake through StakeHound is just 1 Dash, worth $66.97 at publishing time.

Mark Mason, the marketing manager of Dash, said that the collaboration will not only allow Dash users access to DeFi but also allow DeFi users access to Dash.

Mason added:

“The bridge provides an additional on-ramp for DeFi, but more importantly a much-needed off-ramp for DeFi users who wish to easily convert their gains into a well established scarce cryptocurrency with utility beyond the DeFi ecosystem. This allows DeFi users to exchange DeFi tokens for Dash enabling them to actually spend and use those tokens in the real world.”

Thus, Albert Castellana, the founder and CEO of StakeHound, also stated an intention to build and integrate DeFi capabilities into the upcoming Dash Platform.
