An upcoming election could give the Dash community greater control over its developers. Dash Core Group (DCG), the company responsible for developing and promoting the cryptocurrency, will soon be governed by "Trust Protectors" elected directly by the community. A DCG board member has said this "radical" shift will give power back to the Masternode network.
The first election for Dash's Trust Protectors will conclude at the end of March. The Protectors will give the community final say in the project's direction. The position is open to any individual, as long as they are of legal age and not a citizen of Iran, Cuba or North Korea.
