30 Days of Jaxx, Day 28: Jaxx Announces the Addition of CreditBit to the Jaxx Wallet

5th October 2017 / Decentral Community Space – Toronto – Today Jaxx is excited to announce support for the CreditBit token, CRB, in the Jaxx ecosystem.

As well, the future CreditIDENTITY platform will enable voluntary identification of addresses owners while the CreditBAY feature will power a decentralized commodity market.

Anthony Di Iorio, cofounder of Ethereum and CEO of Jaxx said, “The CreditBit team have an ambitious roadmap for their platform and tools. The CRB token is central to those plans and to the CreditBit community. I’m happy we’re able to support CRB in Jaxx!”

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 27: Jaxx Announces the Addition of Melon Token to the Jaxx Wallet

4th October 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced today that the Melon token, “MLN”, will be integrated and available in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

Anthony Di Iorio, founder of Jaxx and Ethereum, said “Decentralized technologies are being used to disrupt a wide variety of markets. Supporting projects like the Melon in Jaxx is a great way for me to help them get their MLN token into the hands of our large ecosystem of users. I believe the Melon project is an exciting take on digital asset management and I’m happy to support MLN in Jaxx.”

Reto Trinkler, Chairman and Co-Founder of Melonport said “Melon is a tool which enables anyone, even a 14 year old prodigy in his/her basement to set up and run their own investment fund and prove to the world that they can outperform the bigger players in traditional asset management. Having MLN on Jaxx, will open this up even more.”

In the simplest of terms, Melon can be thought of as a system of tools that enables participants to set up, manage and invest in digital assets and have management strategies that exist within a customisable, predefined ruleset.

The system itself is decentralised, and minimises the requirement for trust. You can imagine it as a toolbox for anyone who has access to digital assets that require management.

Mona El Isa, CEO of Melonport, added “Reto and I are thrilled to see MLN added to the Jaxx wallet which we believe shares many of Melonport’s own core values. ”

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 26: Jaxx Announces the Addition of Matchpool to the Jaxx Wallet

3rd October 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced today that the Matchpool token, GUP, will be integrated and available in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

Anthony Di Iorio, founder of Jaxx and Ethereum, said “I’m driving Jaxx into different sectors in an effort to support the entire blockchain ecosystem and I believe the Matchpool project is a great player in matchmaking and dating market. I’m happy to support GUP in Jaxx.”

Anthony continued, “Dating services as a market – including online dating websites, dating apps and dating coaches – has been estimated recently to be a $2.5 billion business in the U.S.A alone. Matchpool’s attempt to disrupt this industry using decentralized technologies is a project the team at Jaxx is happy to support”

Matchpool is a decentralized matchmaking protocol which uses group dynamics to help participants match with each other. It can also be used as a more generic platform for any kind of paid membership community which can clearly define two sides of an interaction or market.

“Since it’s on a blockchain, there is also trust in the technology and fairness of rules/payments,” said Matchpool CEO Yonotan Ben Shimon. “In addition, on the Matchpool platform, anyone can create essentially a dating site. I want to do to dating platforms what wordpress did to blogs.”

A two-year roadmap is also laid out for launching and scaling the network, including a detailed specification of the Guppy token, which will play an integral role in its development. Learn more about Matchpool and the GUP token at http://matchpool.co

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 25: Jaxx Announces the Addition of TokenCard to the Jaxx Wallet

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 25: Jaxx Announces the Addition of TokenCard to the Jaxx Wallet

2nd October 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced today that the TokenCard token, TKN, will be integrated and available in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

TokenCard founder, Mel Gelderman, created TKN as a means to make it easy for consumers to spend cryptocurrencies at the grocery store, tap-to-pay gas pumps, at ecommerce sites like Amazon, or to pay regular subscriptions like Netflix.

“As TKN is meant to make it easy for consumers to spend their crypto assets with a card, Jaxx integration makes TKN accessible to a network of over 400,000 crypto enthusiasts in the Jaxx ecosystem. TKN is now live in Jaxx  – Jaxx users can easily shift their other crypto assets into TKN today. This Jaxx integration is a big step on the path to TokenCard’s goal of removing friction for consumers interested in spending their cryptocurrencies quickly and conveniently.”

TokenCard is a debit card built on Ethereum smart contracts. It is usable at payment terminals worldwide. Users are able to fund the card from Jaxx, today. The TKN asset contract accrues a 1% fee on debit card transactions using non-TKN tokens. For users who use TKN for transactions, there will be no fee – making it advantageous to use Jaxx to hold TKN.

Anthony continued, “TokenCard’s smart contract for the token sale triggered this hard cap 26 minutes after the sale began. That level of demand makes it clear: they’re a bright future for TokenCard. The team at Jaxx and I are happy we can support TKN.”

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 23: Jaxx Announces the Addition of Salt Lending to the Jaxx Wallet

28th September 2017 / Decentral – Toronto – Today Jaxx is excited to announce support for the SALT Membership token, SALT, in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

SALT lets consumers leverage their blockchain assets to secure cash loans. SALT makes it easy for individuals and organizations to get fiat-cash loans without having to sell their favorite investment – their bitcoins, ether, or other crypto assets.

Anthony Di Iorio sees SALT as representative of the trend towards decentralized business models, “We’ve entered the age of decentralization. Diamonds, deeds, derivatives – the world’s assets are migrating to blockchains. The SALT platform facilitates loans secured by this rapidly expanding class of decentralized assets. I’m glad we can support their team and support the SALT membership token in Jaxx.”

SALT streamlines every step of the loan. The application process focuses on the value of the borrower’s blockchain assets instead of their credit score or income. Borrowers are automatically matched with capital from the extensive network of SALT Lenders. SALT then keeps borrower’s collateral assets safe in a fully-audited, ultra-secure architecture during the life of the loan so borrowers and lenders can transact with confidence.

“We’re very excited to have SALT supported in Jaxx’s awesome wallet.” Said Shawn Owen, CEO of SALT. “We’re incredibly grateful to be partnering with such a great wallet and we look forward to integrating SALT’s service into the Jaxx experience in the future!”
