2014-01-18Release1LaunchDash launched was launched by Evan Duffield as a fork of Litecoin under the name Xcoin in January 2014. The defining feature on launch was the unique X11 hashing algorithm, instead of Bitcoin's SHA256. This ensured fair participation in mining during the early days of the coin, since powerful ASIC hardware was not yet available.330https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=421615.msg4588649#msg4588649

2Xcoin -> Darkcoin rebrandingThe coin rebranded from Xcoin to Darkcoin due to a name conflict and to highlight an initial focus on privacy. To this day, Dash addresses still start with an "X".163https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=421615.msg4808284#msg4808284

2014-05-25Feature1MasternodesMasternodes were first launched in May 2014 to considerable excitement in the cryptocurrency community. This concept, since copied by hundreds of other projects, provides for a set of powerful and incentivized full nodes to form a network backbone, providing services such as coin mixing, instant transactions, governance and more. Masternodes share half of the block reward with miners, incentivizing both network security and availability.441https://www.ccn.com/darkcoin-price-skyrockets-eve-masternode-launch/I belive DarkSend came before Masternodes
