30 Days of Jaxx, Day 30: Looking Back and Moving Forward

10th October 2017 / Decentral Community Space – Toronto – Today Jaxx pauses to take a look back at the 30 Days of Jaxx and a look forward at the near future of our community.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada and we’re still in a reflective mood. We’re big believers in the power of decentralized technologies, like blockchains, to empower individuals to better control their digital lives. We’re motivated to support the entrepreneurs and projects that are pushing that technology forward. Over the course of our 30DaysOfJaxx campaign we’ve been keen to highlight a few projects and platforms as they make a splash in the decentral ecosystem. We’re thankful we’re able to support these entrepreneurs by exposing them to the large and growing community of Jaxx users.

We’re also thankful for each user of our own blockchain interface, Jaxx. We’re committed to delivering a flexible and powerful tool for your use in managing all your blockchain assets. We’ve integrated 22 new tokens and coins over the course of our 30DaysOfJaxx. We’ll continue our work of identifying exciting new projects and we’ll keep listening to your requests for new integrations. The 30 Days of Jaxx have come to a close but we’ve only just gotten warmed up on our way to supporting a wide variety of crypto assets.

Along the way through the 30 days we took a few days out to highlight a few of the people who drive Jaxx forward. Dr Shu Wang, our new Chief Security Officer, leads our efforts to keep Jaxx a safe and secure platform. Addison Cameron-Huff, our General Counsel, brings deep experience in and knowledge of the blockchain legal landscape. Our team of developers are the beating heart of our platform.

In the future you can expect that we’ll continue our mission to support innovative projects in the decentral ecosystem. We’ll continue to build out our back end nodes to better and more rapidly support forks of the major chains. Most importantly we’ll ask for your feedback on http://twitter.com/jaxx_io and http://twitter.com/jaxx_support to help guide the future development of Jaxx.

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.

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. ”

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.

“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.”

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!”
