The Dash Coin Block Size is 2MB at the moment but there have been plenty of calls to increase that in the recent past, and we’ve seen this kind of thing before of course. A similar kind of debate about increasing block size arose within the Bitcoin community and the result was that Bitcoin spawned an offshoot (known as a fork) called Bitcoin Cash.
But in the case of Dash coin block size, there was a greater degree of consensus on the issue, and this was tested out with a vote among stakeholders. They were asked if raising the block size from 1MB to 2MB should go ahead and it transpired that 99% of stakeholders agreed.
At the moment, each block in the chain holds 10 or fewer transactions and the timestamp for transactions only amounts to a few kilobytes of data. This means that there was never a very urgent need to raise the Dash coin block size. But there was an awareness that this might change in the future if the coin gained in popularity, so the change to increase Dash coin block size was implemented in order to future proof it.
