The Dash wallet developed by Hash Engineering Solutions is an open-source hierarchical deterministic mobile wallet. The wallet only has support for Dash and allows users to send, receive, and store Dash. The Dash Wallet is open source and the code can be accessed on GitHub. The wallet can be translated into different languages and this is completed via the Transifex software. The wallet facilitates conversion to fiat currencies. To set up the wallet, users do not have to put in any details or go through a verification process making. This will be an advantage for users who wish to remain anonymous.
Transactions can be complete via NFC, QR codes, or Dash addresses. When the wallet is offline, users can make transactions via Bluetooth. When the wallet is online, users will receive notifications for receiving transactions. An address book is created for regularly used contacts making it more convenient for users to send transactions.
One drawback of the wallet is it is difficult for users to retrieve their private key. Users have to put in some code in Git to get their private key which will not be in the capabilities of the everyday user. There is also no backup seed phrase provided. There is no recovery seed phrase but users can restore their wallet with their password.
