Announcing STORM Token is Integrated in Jaxx

Announcing STORM Token is Integrated in Jaxx; STORM will be tradable after the completion of the crowdsale completes

7th November 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced last month that Anthony Di Iorio, founder of Decentral and CEO of Jaxx, and Co-Founder of the Ethereum platform, joined Bittrex CEO Bill Shihara, VoIP pioneer and Vonage founder Jeff Pulver, Alchemist Ventures co-founder Steven Nerayoff, and Zynga founding CTO Tom Bolich on the Storm Board of Advisors. In follow-up to that announcement, and in concert with the opening of the Storm Token ICO, Decentral announces support for the STORM token in the Jaxx wallet upon completion of the crowdsale.

Anthony Di Iorio said, “The Storm team has a novel and interesting approach to disrupting the freelancer and gig-economy; I’m excited to see their application of decentralized technologies take shape. I’m glad to announce that STORM is integrated in Jaxx today. STORM holders will be able to trade their tokens after the crowdsale ends.”

Storm Market allows people to request services like QA testing or machine learning, and select people to complete micro-tasks. Those awarded work are paid in STORM tokens, whose distribution is automatically managed via an Ethereal smart contract.

Simon Yu said: “Freelance workers are rapidly becoming the backbone of the global economy, but current banking systems, credit systems, and processing systems mean employers who need micro-transactions completed from their growing freelancer base face high fees and inefficient middlemen,” Simon continued, “Storm Market aims to transform the economy by creating a secure, decentralized, and gamified micro-task platform without costly transaction fees and cumbersome third-party relationships. Support for the STORM token inside Jaxx is a big step for us in that direction.”

Announcing Anthony Di Iorio Joins Advisory Board of Presearch.io

1st November, 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced today that Anthony Di Iorio, co-founder of Ethereum and CEO of Decentral Inc, has joined the Presearch Board of Advisors.

The team at Presearch.io are building a decentralized and community-driven search engine intended to disrupt the multi-billion dollar internet search industry. Already in use since 2013 as an internal tool, Presearch launches their public beta on November 9th, allowing anyone to search multiple engines including Amazon and Google. Anthony Di Iorio has joined Presearch’s advisory board to help guide the development of its blockchain-based service. Presearch has generated more than $12 million in revenue from its ongoing token sale.

Anthony commented, “I’m a believer in the power of decentralized technologies to disrupt and improve a wide variety of existing markets. The Presearch team have a novel approach to the massive search-engine market with their blockchain-enabled community-driven approach.” Presearch’s transparent ranking factors combine human curation with scalable machine learning, a contrast to manipulated algorithm-driven methods standard among today’s industry giants. In a world in which one company controls 77 percent of all searches, influencing trillions in spending and acting as a primary gatekeeper to the Internet, proponents of decentralized technologies see a pressing need for a community-driven search engine.

Anthony continued, “The power of blockchain technology lies in its real-world use cases, and Presearch demonstrates this with a compelling alternative to search engines run by global corporations,” said Anthony Di Iorio. “I look forward to using Presearch myself, and advocating for its growth in the blockchain community and beyond.”

Announcing BrickBlock Token, BBT, To Be Integrated In Jaxx

Announcing BrickBlock Token, BBT, To Be Integrated In Jaxx

31 October 2017 / Toronto – Decentral Incorporated, makers of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface, has announced today the Brickblock token, BBT, is to be supported in the Jaxx wallet ecosystem. Jaxx will be the official wallet of the Brickblock token crowdsale.

After raising $1 million USD during a short private pre-sale, Brickblock’s public ICO will commence on October 31.

Anthony Di Iorio, founder of Decentral, CEO of Jaxx and co-founder of Ethereum said, “I’m a believer in the power of decentralized technologies to disrupt existing markets. Brickblock have an ambitous project in front of them and we’re happy they have selected Jaxx as the offical wallet of their crowdsale.”

Brickblock is creating a blockchain-based platform for trading both cryptocurrencies and real-world assets. Brickblock believes investors looking to mitigate the risk of holding purely digital assets will be able to do so all from inside their platform. The Brickblock platform seeks to create access for investors to both classes of assets from a single, simple, powerful interface.

Through the effective use of smart contracts, order and issuing fees could be reduced to a fraction of traditional costs. Brickblock’s proposed blockchain-based solution enables vendors of in exchange-traded funds (ETFs), real estate funds (REFs), passive coin-traded funds (CTFs) and active coin managed funds (CMFs) to offer their investment vehicles alongside each other.

The company’s goal is to make investing cheaper, easier, and more secure by cutting out third parties from the transaction process. This is achieved by using smart contracts to automatically confirm the transfer of funds from the investor to the fund manager, and the assets from the fund manager to the investor.

Jaxx will be the official wallet for participants in the Brickblock token crowdsale, which opens 31st October, and is found at https://www.brickblock.io/tokens.

Announcing Inclusion of the Swarm Fund Platform Token, SWM, in Jaxx

Announcing Inclusion of the Swarm Fund Platform Token, SWM, in Jaxx

25th October 2017 – Decentral Community Space – Toronto – Today Jaxx is excited to announce support for the Swarm Fund platform token, SWM, in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

Swarm’s infrastructure platform provides a facility to create and operate asset-backed tokens. “Swarm’s launch represents the next iteration of crypto and blockchain technologies, while bridging the gap between traditional finance and the rapidly innovating cryptocurrency space,” said Joel Dietz, cryptocurrency pioneer, partner and co-founder of Swarm Fund. “The first wave of crypto was a peer-to-peer transactional system, with Bitcoin. The second wave came when Ethereum brought us smart contracts, and the programmability of crypto-tokens and other digital utilities. The third wave will be the securitization of those digital properties, backed by real-world assets such as real estate and brick-and-mortar companies, traded on the blockchain.”

Founded by Dietz, serial entrepreneur Philipp Pieper and fintech investor Timo Lehes, the Swarm Fund platform, powered by the SWM ERC20 token, enables the creation of asset-backed securities. Pilot funds built on the platform are expected to focus on distressed real estate, solar installations, software-as-a-service and cryptocurrency companies.

Anthony Di Iorio is excited about Jaxx support of the SWM token, “I’m determined to support interesting and effective applications of decentralized technologies to existing markets. The team at Swarm have built a platform that enables a novel approach to funding and investing in real estate projects. Integrating SWM into Jaxx is a great way for us to support the platform, the Swarm team and user community. We’re proud to support SWM in Jaxx once the token has distributed from its contract.”

About Swarm Fund

Swarm Fund is a fully decentralized capital marketplace that democratizes investing by using the power of the blockchain to open up high-return, alternative investment classes to smaller investors through asset-backed funds using cryptocurrency tokens. It makes traditionally exclusive investment opportunities, such as private equity and hedge funds, inclusive for the Swarm by pooling together smaller investments into larger, institutional-sized blocks. Swarm Fund also gives fund managers access to more capital from a new asset class of investors who want access to institutional-type investments, but don’t have the high minimums many institutional funds require. Pilot investment vehicles on the Swarm Fund platform include a Distressed Real Estate Fund, a Solar Energy Fund, and a Crypto Hedge Fund.

 

A Statement on Bitcoin Gold

At this time we do not plan to support Bitcoin Gold in Jaxx. We are, however, monitoring the situation closely and with great interest.

As of the writing of this post, October 23, Bitcoin Gold does not have  fully formed consensus code or a functional codebase, they have not Implemented replay protection, or have adequate code for testing and auditing, or have publicly known code developers. The Bitcoin Gold codebase does however contain a private premine of 8,000 blocks (100,000 BTG) owned and controlled by those anonymous developers.

Of the concerns with BTG by far the one weighing most on our minds is the lack of replay protection. If Bitcoin Gold does not implement strong two-way replay protection your BTG and BTC might be vulnerable to attack if you send BTG transactions. Do recall our previous post on replay protection, here.

We do not currently have plans to support BTG in Jaxx. However, we will continue to monitor the BTG situation and will notify you of decisions we make here on our blog.

Our priorities are, as always, the security of our users’ funds. You will always have control of your assets and private keys through your 12-word backup phrase.

If the BTG development team see this message we’d like to encourage them to reach out to us on [email protected]
