I believe Dash latest update 12.1 includes sentinel, which is coded in python and is running alongside dashd.
Future use will include easy updating of Dash through sentinel / python.
Dash has proof of work (miners) and proof of service (masternodes).

Dash is still looking for developers with experience in that area by the way : https://www.dash.org/forum/topic/dash-jobs.111/
 

Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now

->Chances are quite less.
->Since C++ laid out the basic foundation for Cryptos,it's pretty much take ahead from there.
->I can give 100 reasons why C++ should be the idea choice for cryptos over python.
->How many bitcoin related python modules you know ? C++ has many libraries!
->Why python though ? You want to contribute or start your own coin in python ?

Well to be frank with you python is pretty easy language to understand as compared to C++. So I thought If any cryptocurrency written in python would help me understand the how the codes of blockchain are written. I am trying to understand the all the aspects of a coin and also want to contribute to new coins if they require my help.

I'm also in learning the blockchain basics via Python, since I'm most comfortable with it. Any suggestions?

Hey you're the guy who does the BlockXChain blog! I'm just starting out in blockchain development and found your "Building a Blockchain from Scratch using Python" to be really useful. I'm looking forward to a Part 2!

I found that there were a couple errors in it though, so had to modify it a little. I also added mining and block difficulty into your example. I was going to try implementing networking and being able to run multiple nodes and some basic consensus soon. My modifications: https://github.com/aidanbeale/BasicCoin. Pretty basic, but I am new to this.

I have found several other resources that might help you.

https://github.com/DutchGraa/crackcoin
This coin was written in Python specifically as a project to practice blockchain development. So it's not a fully functioning coin, but looks like a great resource.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1896497.0
As for an actual existing currency, this coin (BISMUTH) is entirely written in Python.

https://github.com/theQRL
Also Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) currently has their testnet written in Python. They're going to be releasing an updated testnet in a week or so (existing one is currently offline but you can go through the code).

If you find any good resources for learning the basics of blockchain development please let me know. Once I get the hang of things building a basic blockchain in Python I was going to try make a beginner video series or something. Help spread the knowledge around. Seems pretty hard to find good resources on it.
