Welcome to 7 Days of Jaxx! We’ve challenged ourselves to present 7 major initiatives, releases and announcements over the course of 1 week that we think the whole community will be really excited about.
We got the ball rolling yesterday with our launch of Jaxx 1.0 on iOS (let’s consider that Day 1), and tomorrow brings the rest of the Jaxx 1.0 rollout across the remaining platforms and devices. Today we’re revealing the revised design and concept for our Coin Card program. As for the rest, you’ll just have to figure ‘em out…
A couple of months back, we announced that we would be launching an initiative that would enable the easy purchase of Bitcoin in Canada. Now, we are excited to let Canadians know that we’ve secured a partnership with Gateway Newstands, a Canadian company that has hundreds of convenience stores across the country, to stock Jaxx Coin Cards. We’re also excited to announce that we will also be adding Ether to the mix making it the first time ever Ether will be able to be bought with cash in stores. As we add more coins to Jaxx, these should also become available for purchase using Jaxx Coin Cards. Users just purchase the cards with cash, peel off a sticker to reveal a QR code, and scan it from their Jaxx wallet to import the funds, making the purchase and importing of coins quick, easy, and convenient.
Jaxx Coin Cards are currently available only to Canadian users, but we believe our Cards are a much simpler, more efficient way to get quick access to funds than ATM systems or exchanges, and hope to expand the program beyond Canada’s borders in the near future.
Stay tuned for more exciting announcements as 7 Days of Jaxx continues!
