A peer-to-peer network which can transfer tiny amounts of money quickly and cheaply.
It's not a blockchain - payments are routed like packets through the network and are not stored.
Dassie can handle very large amounts of very small payments and scales horizontally meaning its capacity increases as more nodes join the network.
Dassie automatically handles currency exchange and routing. You can use any (supported) currency you like and still transact with everyone else on the Dassie network.
The current implementation uses various cryptocurrencies as the underlying value transfer systems, but Dassie is based on Interledger (opens in a new tab), which means that it can be used with any payments system with an open API.
The Dassie project is the very early stages of development. The first version of the software is expected to be released in the next few months.
