Dash Explorer To Get Fresh ‘Insight' Update On Jan 7th; API Users Will Have 3 Months To Changeover

Dash is making some upgrades to their interface. What do you need to do to stay compatible? How will the changes impact daily use?

  • Users of the interface will need to upgrade to the Insight API to prevent incompatibility.
  • Dash has been delisted from OKEx Korea and UpBit, due to compliance concerns.

The current Dash Explorer program is already based on the Abe API, but marketing manager of Dash Michael Seitz believes that this interface is “outdated” and that it offers “limited functionality.” To improve the system, Seitz published a blog post on December 4th to explain the “new and improved API” that the Dash Explorer will upgrade into – Insight.

The open-source Dash blockchain explorer will be ideal for apps that require more advanced blockchain queries, like web wallets, according to an article by CoinTelegraph. Users will easily be able to build their own services from the Dash network, due to the newly convenient way of reading data on it.

Furthermore, every user will be impacted by the upcoming update, since there will be differences between the current software and Insight. To prevent incompatibility issues, users need upgrade to the Insight API when the time comes.

At the end of October 2019, Dash Latam announced the end of their operation in eight countries, as well as 20 cities. The organization, which previously pushed for Dash adoption in Latin America, had formerly been available in Tobago, Colombia, Trinidad, Venezuela, Peru, Spain, Ecuador, Brazil, and Guatemala.

George Donnelly, the executive director of the organization, had previously stated that Dash Latam was left without funding, forcing the layoff of about 80 employees as operations shut down.

In the same month, OKEx Korea announced that they would no longer support Dash trading on their cryptocurrency exchange, along with other assets, due to regulatory issues.

The exchange had received recommendations from the Financial Action Task Force, pushing OKEx Korea to stop and review the “Travel Rules” and Dash’s compliance with them.

Dash was already delisted by UpBit, the largest cryptocurrency exchange by volume to operate in South Korea. The delisting, which happened in September, cited money laundering concerns as the reason for withdrawing support for Dash, as well as the possibility of “inflow from external networks.”
