Dash was added to an exchange and payment solution, solidifying its run of 2018 at a fast pace.
Paybear a new online merchant gateway for cryptocurrency payments, recently released its new product. Dash is included in its initial range of seven different accepted cryptocurrencies, with 11 more reportedly on the way this year. The system currently includes integrations into several ecommerce plugins, including WooCommerce and OpenCart, with others such as Magento in the works.
Dash added to the instant exchange GODEX
In addition to Paybear, Dash was also added to the new GODEX cryptocurrency exchange:

The Crypto Dash ecosystem diversifies, in favor of Dash
The business world of cryptocurrency is changing rapidly, with dozens of new businesses such as GODEX and Paybear popping up all the time. Previously, the ecosystem was Bitcoin-heavy, with dominant companies dominating every aspect of the industry: Coinbase to easily buy with a bank account, BitPay for point-of-sale payments, ShapeShift for instant conversion between coins and Purse for spending on Amazon .com. Now, a series of competitors has arisen, with Uphold and Mercury Cash offering competition to Coinbase, Alt Thirty Six aiming for a higher selling point than BitPay, GODEX, MorphToken and Flyp.me defying ShapeShift and Changelly, and BitCart competing with Purse on Amazon.com purchase. All these new services support Dash, two of them (Alt Thirty Six and BitCart) exclusively, while only one of the "old guard" of the industry currently accepts Dash.
As the ecosystem becomes more and more saturated with new players, customers who demand more popular and effective parts for payments such as Dash flock to services that support their demands, adapting or losing market shares. This diversification will lead to fewer and fewer guards, with the exception of Dash, which is widely used.
