Jaxx Adds the Edgeless Token to the Jaxx Ecosystem

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 10 – Jaxx Adds the Edgeless Token to the Jaxx Ecosystem

11th September 2017 – Toronto

Today Jaxx announces support for the Edgeless Casino token inside the Jaxx wallet.

Edgeless.io is the first Ethereum-based casino. Edgeless levers blockchain technology to offer players a completely transparent and 0% edge gambling experience. In the past online casinos have taken advantage of their house edge at the expense of participants. Now, on Edgeless, players are able to verify and view the Ethereum smart contract and thus be sure of the house edge: 0%. Ignas Mangevicius, Edgeless Co-Founder said, “Our casino solves the two greatest challenges to online casinos – price and transparency. We’ve built Edgeless to be fun & fair.”

Anthony Di Iorio, CEO of Jaxx, says “Traditional online casinos have the capacity to cheat their users without being spotted. Edgeless is using decentralized technology to eliminate that possibility and make a transparent gaming environment. We’re happy to support the token tied to their project, EDG, in Jaxx.”

About Edgeless:
The Edgeless team has been working since 2016 to create the first fully transparent casino in the world. The Edgeless ICO completed in March 2017 and the team has delivered their first milestone, the beta version of their Blackjack game. See www.edgeless.io for more information.

Jaxx Announces the Addition of the Basic Attention Token to the Jaxx Wallet

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 8: BAT Added to Jaxx Wallet

Basic Attention Token & Jaxx announce support in the Jaxx wallet for the BAT token.

Basic Attention Token radically improves the efficiency of digital advertising by creating a new token that can be exchanged between publishers, advertisers, and users. It all happens on the Ethereum blockchain. The token can be used to obtain a variety of advertising and attention-based services on the Brave platform. The utility of the token is based on user attention, which simply means a person’s focused mental engagement.

“Digital advertising is broken. It is a market filled with middlemen and fraudsters, hurting users, publishers and advertisers. BAT is the solution. We are the token of utility in a new, decentralized, open source and efficient blockchain-based digital advertising platform” says Brendan Eich, founder of BAT & the Brave browser

Jaxx CEO Anthony Di Iorio is a fan, “BAT is the new token for the digital advertising industry. It pays publishers for their content and users for their attention, while providing advertisers with more in return for their ads. This is an application of blockchain technology we can all be excited about – we’re glad to bring BAT into the Jaxx ecosystem.”

About Brave & BAT:
Brave is a fast, open source, privacy-focused browser that blocks third party ads and trackers, and builds in a ledger system that measures user attention to reward publishers accordingly. Brave introduced BAT (Basic Attention Token), a token for a decentralized ad exchange. It compensates the browser user for attention while protecting privacy. BAT is a payment system that rewards and protects the user while giving better conversion to advertisers and higher yield to publishers.

Jaxx Is Excited to Add Maecenas to the Jaxx Ecosystem

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 6: Jaxx Is Adding Maecenas to its Wallet

Today Jaxx is excited to announce support for the Maecenas token, ART, in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

The Maecenas platform democratises access to fine art by facilitating a truly open market where anyone anywhere can “own a piece of a Picasso”. Maecenas is the decentralized art gallery; The Telegraph says Maecenas “… gives art lovers a chance to buy shares in famous paintings.”

Marcelo Garcia Casil, Maecenas co-founder & CEO describes their service, “Maecenas uses blockchain technology to create tamper proof digital certificates linked to pieces of art. These certificates are impossible to forge thanks to the blockchain.”

“As we continue to support Cofoundit projects in Jaxx we are all excited to announce the Maecenas token will be included the Jaxx ecosystem. The Maecenas solution to decentralizing fine art ownership is heart warming – I think everyone in the world can relate to the desire to own and help preserve pieces of our collective cultural history”  said Anthony Di Iorio, founder and CEO of Jaxx.

Note: a common support request to Jaxx & to Cofoundit relates to tokens being locked for transfer while a contribution period is open. Cofoundit’s Daniel Zakrisson explains, why here.

About Maecenas:
With offices in the UK, Switzerland and Singapore, Maecenas uses a blockchain to facilitate art investment without intermediaries. The Maecenas Initial Coin Offering begins 5th September 2017.

Jaxx Now Has Qtum!

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 5: Qtum Is Now on Jaxx

We’re happy to announce that Jaxx now carries QTUM the open source hybrid blockchain project based out of Singapore. Jaxx users can now see their QTUM balances directly in their Jaxx wallet and trade their QTUM for any other cryptocurrency also on the Jaxx ecosystem.

“Qtum has been a project we’ve been tracking for quite some time. Having it on our wallet was definitely a goal since their successful crowdsale early this year,” said Jaxx founder and CEO Anthony Di Iorio. “I strongly believe in their project and can’t wait to see them go mainstream. I’m excited that Jaxx is able to help facilitate this.”

“I am very happy to see one of the most popular wallets add QTUM. We believe this Jaxx integration will help QTUM become useable to a whole new audience,” said Patrick Dai, co-founder of QTUM.

About Qtum:
QTUM provides a Turing-complete blockchain stack, able to execute smart contracts and decentralized applications, comparable to the Ethereum blockchain. QTUM is built upon Bitcoin’s well-established UTXO transaction model and employs a Proof-of-stake consensus mechanism that is more practical for business adoption. QTUM levers the strengths of both Ethereum & Bitcoin and these augmentations have far-reaching implications for the utility of the QTUM blockchain.

The Jaxx Team Is Growing!

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 4: Our New Chief Security Officer

Today, Jaxx is proud to welcome Dr. Shu Wang, (PhD. Computer Science) to its team. Shu comes with a wealth of experience in the Security, Infrastructure and Cloud Computing space, having held such positions as Advisory Software Engineer & Researcher for IBM’s Security AppScan Source product. He has contributed to IBM’s Team Blue, which won 3rd place in the DEFCON world network forensics contest, in addition to winning 2nd place in a cross-team Hackathon. Shu also published a paper titled “Static application security testing for crypto-currency ecosystems“ in 2014, which was met with wide acclaim in the ecosystem.

Shu joins Jaxx at a critical time in the blockchain industry as it continues to garner increased public interest. Security has always been a top priority for Jaxx, which has a history of innovation when it comes to blockchain privacy and security. For example, Jaxx was one of the first cryptocurrency wallets to transition towards a HD (Hierarchical Deterministic) format for its users. Shu’s addition to the team will directly contribute to the company’s overall mission of empowering individuals to take control of their digital lives by securing Jaxx’s core products and ensuring that user identities and assets are protected.

“Dr. Wang’s wealth of experience in IT security, coupled with his enthusiasm for the blockchain industry, signals to our users that we’re continuously focusing on maintaining our position as a privacy and security leader,” said Jaxx founder and CEO Anthony Di Iorio.

“I’ve personally witnessed Anthony and Decentral go from small meetups up to launching Ethereum, followed by Jaxx being introduced to the space,” said Dr. Shu Wang. “The growth has been tremendous. I’m excited to be part of the team because of how Jaxx strives to innovate in the industry. Introducing Shapeshift to the platform was one such innovation and I can’t wait to help with future integrations.”

With Di Iorio at the helm, Jaxx has grown substantially over the past three months by doubling the size of its team. Shu’s addition adds to a string of other corporate crossovers to the Jaxx team, a trend that has increased in the blockchain space as of late. Shu also joins a number of ex-IBMers, such as Warren Yen, our creative director.

Please visit Cofound.it’s blog for more details.

“It’s always exhilarating to support others in our space when their goals mirror ours,” said Anthony Di Iorio, founder and CEO of Jaxx. “Adding CFI tokens to our wallet should signal to our users that they’ll be able to participate in token sales in a much faster way than ever before.

Introducing 30 Days of Jaxx!

Day 1:  Po.et now live on our platform for token sale participants

Back in 2016, we challenged ourselves to bring 7 Days of Jaxx to you, our users. The goal was to use consecutive days to show what we had been working on leading up to that point. It included new releases of our wallet and announcements on new token integrations. We eventually expanded those 7 days into 14 days. This year, we decided to step it up a notch.

Our goal for this campaign is to demonstrate how we’re building up our multi-coin, multi-interface wallet to be the industry leader. While unveiling a few surprises, we also want to show just how much fun we’re having along the way!
