May 22 at 07:02 (Kyiv / Moscow time) Dash network stopped at block #1,874,879. The activation of the Dash Core v19 release caused the problem, Samuel Westrich, CTO of the software company, said.
There was a problem during v19 activation of Dash Core. The chain is stalled and currently not producing blocks. We have everyone investigating the issue. I will continue with updates on Twitter as we have more information.

According to him, the team “has everything to deal with the issue.”
The creator of PirateCash Dmitry Korniychuk noted that the use of standalone software does not allow restarting the blockchain. Due to desync and invalid blocks, the network of the privacy-focused cryptocurrency comes to a halt.
The price of DASH did not react to the failure – over the past day, the coin has fallen in price by 0.1% and is trading at about $43.8.
Recall that in 2020, Dash Core Group Marketing Director Fernando Gutierrez stated that Dash is a means of payment, and not one of the anonymous cryptocurrencies.
In July 2021, the developers launched the DashDirect payment application.
