Jaxx – Monero Integration Update

For those of you that don’t know we at Decentral recently joined the Monero community and are working on integrating Monero to our Jaxx Wallet. Jaxx is a free multi-token, multi-platform light wallet that’s dedicated to uniting the crypto-ecosystem and providing an interface to Blockchain tech (in a similar way the browser unleashed the power of the internet to the masses). Among other things, it is the goal of Jaxx and Decentral to allow people to be in full control of their digital lives. All keys in Jaxx are held client-side and a single 12-word backup phrase allows for the derivation of the keys to all tokens we support, and will ever support. Also, all our products are design and user experience driven as we make stuff for the masses, so that people (like my non-technical Dad) can have a great experience.

One thing I’d like everyone to remember and keep in mind is that we’re still very new to the Monero community and much of the history of the project is not clear to us still. As you read the rest of my message, please keep this in mind and know that we are not trying to call anyone out or cause conflict in the Monero community. We just want to see Monero thrive.

Here we go.

Monero integration has been on a radar for over a year and over the past weeks and months we dove headfirst into XMR and have since spent more than 400 hours working on this particular integration. During this time we have gained massive knowledge on the inner workings of the Monero protocol, and of the Monero development ecosystem. Our goal is to provide a lightweight (~3 meg) solution for the Monero community that will allow them to manage, send and receive XMR on pretty much any platform or device.

As a result of working to integrate other projects, our 3 years of experience developing wallets, through my experience as a founder of Ethereum, as an early Bitcoin adopter and community builder, and via extensive research and code creation we’ve done for Monero, we believe to have determined the critical issues that are leading to problems with Monero growth and that these problems are hindering the adoption and success of the Monero ecosystem.

As such we are putting a call out for support from the Monero development community to help us break through these problems. We are confident that if these roadblocks can be bypassed, Monero has a great chance to flourish. We believe that unless solved, these issues will greatly hinder Monero’s ability to compete with projects that have similar features.

Before I get into the issues I want to explain and give some background on how our integration process usually works when we tackle a new project, then I’ll explain how things are currently working with the Monero Integration.

Our goal is to implement an XMR lightweight wallet in Jaxx that connects with a high level cryptocurrency API. In most cases (with our previous integrations) there is an existing client library to use for the particular token in question. We have a full stack blockchain development team of 9 that can go from modifying cryptocurrencies nodes to providing high level APIs. We first start any project by making feasibility analysis to check how easy or difficult is to integrate a light wallet with a cryptocurrency. When we see critical unsolved issues or roadblocks, we talk with the specific cryptocurrency team as early as possible. If they have the resources they help us to mitigate those issues. When they don’t have the resources to make the necessary changes, we take the responsibility for these tasks but they provide some guidance based on their expertise.

That’s how things normally work. Here’s how it’s working with Monero.

We researched the feasibility of providing a light wallet for Monero and found the main challenges to be:

  1. Non-existing lightweight client library support (for a project as old as Monero its peculiar no dev has done this)
  2. We would have to implement support for anonymization features.
  3. There are RPC (Remote Procedure Calls) API Limitations that would require changes in the Monero daemon

Here’s what we’ve been able to accomplish so far:

  1. Finish a Monero javascript client library
  2. Use the same approach as MyMonero re anonymization (e.g. persisting the viewkeys)
  3. Modify Monero Core to support a lightweight wallet.

Currently we are developing an API on top of monerod to provide additional web services.

Now here’s the problem.

We have realized critical issues that are difficult to solve at the RPC API level without the development community’s support. Basically we would like to get the global indexes in the transaction output via the RPC API, which are required for sending transactions, but when we call methods such as gettransactions we don’t receive this information. We also try to call the *.bin RPC methods as well but they return error code HTTP 404. Ok fine. If this method is not supported in monerod there are two alternatives: 1) either the core team can add them to make it easier for the entire community to build apps on top of Monero, or 2) we can modify the Monero node itself to add support for new RPC methods required for building applications (like the Jaxx wallet or any other wallet).

The problem with us choosing the second method is the amount of time it’s going to take us to “instrument” the code is unknown as this would be an intensive research project by people who didn’t work on developing any part of Monero. Like a needle in a haystack. Also, should we have to directly hook into the code it could become easily broken in the future as new code gets pushed by the Monero core team. If (and that’s a big if) we were to go down this route of instrumenting the code we would need a commitment from the Monero core team to accept the code push and to continue supporting it in the main branch.

Without either of these two options being completed it means that Monero as it is isn’t able to bring enough information outside of the node in order to develop a full wallet.

As mentioned in previous update posts, we’d like to thank Fluffypony for providing us with assistance with the integration. But we need more help than he’s been able or willing to provide. The issue is that his help has been limited as although he is a main contributor to Monero, he also owns MyMonero and has a profit incentive not to give away his “secret sauce” on the back-end. You see, MyMonero hooks right into the code and this coupled with him being one of the few main contributors on the Monero Github gives MyMonero an upper hand against other projects trying to create similar services.

We understand and accept Fluffypony’s motives and situation. He’s put a ton or resources and effort into Monero and into MyMonero. What we’d like to do is call on anyone else who may be able to help to break through these barriers. Please email me at anthonyATdecentral.ca if you would like to join our slack channel and see if we can crack the problem’s we’ve identified and are facing. We fear if we don’t have more assistance from core Monero devs to act as guides we (or anyone else for that matter) will not be able to bring the products and services necessary for the Monero community to flourish.

Have a great weekend all!

Jaxx Announces Rootstock Integration at laBITconf

 

Announcement comes as Rootstock officially unveils their smart contracts based platform

 

Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA – 5 November 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal wallet Jaxx, announced today the integration of Rootstock’s token RSK “Smart Bitcoin,” into their suite of software products. Jaxx becomes the first blockchain wallet to effect the integration, which will give users an opportunity to access the testnet version of the token, powered by smart contracts secured by the bitcoin network. Rootstock is immediately available on 7 of Jaxx’s 9 platforms, with support for iPhone and iPad expected shortly. The announcement comes as Rootstock executives took center stage at laBITconf to officially unveil their platform to the world’s leading blockchain experts, fintech innovators and international reporters. The concept of Rootstock is to provide faster bitcoin transactions and larger scalability, with payment confirmations occurring almost instantly.

 

CEO of Jaxx Anthony Di Iorio said, “Rootstock’s platform is a remarkable way to enhance the the efficiency of transactions and in turn, the entire bitcoin ecosystem. We’ve seen great interest in their project and we are big fans of the development team. Jaxx is thrilled to add the yellow label version of their coin on our wallets, and look forward to adding the main-net version in the coming months.”

 

Rootstock is an evolution of QixCoin, a turing-complete cryptocurrency created back in 2013 by the same development team. Rootstock will facilitate over 300 transactions per second and confirms payments in less than 20 seconds. The platform will combine the capabilities of Ethereum with the security and transparency of the Bitcoin network, using sidechain technology and a merged mining approach.

 

Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar, co-founder of Rootstock said, “Rootstock is not new in that it inherits intellectual work from previous projects, but what is new, is the way we create economic incentives and the way we leverage on top of the bitcoin security model. Our partnership with Jaxx is a landmark one for us, because they produce full featured, easy to use wallets on more platforms than anyone else.”

 

The main-net launch of Rootcoin will occur in early 2017.

Zcash goes live on Jaxx!

 

Integration complete on 7 of 9 Jaxx platforms.

 

Toronto, ON – November 1, 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, announced today that Zcash’s integration is officially complete. Due to significant community demand and interest in Zcash, Jaxx aimed to ensure the new coin was available as close as possible to its official launch date. As of Tuesday morning EST, Zcash is immediately available on 7 of Jaxx’s 9 platforms, with support for iPhone and iPad expected in the coming weeks.

 

Founder and CEO of Jaxx Anthony Di Iorio said, “There’s a lot of buzz and excitement around Zcash. Our team has worked hard to speed up the integration process, to test it appropriately, and to provide thousands of customers with access to this coin as soon as possible.”

 

CEO of Zcash, Zooko Wilcox said, “Although Jaxx wallet doesn’t presently support all of the advanced privacy features of Zcash, it is a very easy way for people to access, send, and receive Zcash coins. I’m excited about Jaxx adding support for Zcash because it works on many different platforms and devices and it already supports other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.”

 

Zcash works by way of zero-knowledge proofs; the protocol allows for two parties to receive verified information without knowing who each other are, or seeing the subsequent data exchange. Zcash trades and payments will see transactions published on a public blockchain, with the option of keeping the sender, recipient, and amount confidential.

About Zcash:
The Zcash Company is a science-driven team; a combination of academic expertise in computer science and cryptography with security software engineering talent. We are developing the next generation of secure digital currency and blockchain technology through the use of zero-knowledge proofs, to guarantee privacy and confidentiality. We aim to set a new standard for privacy. The Zcash protocol is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency offering total payment confidentiality. Unlike Bitcoin, Zcash transactions automatically hide the sender, recipient, and value of all transactions on the blockchain. It is based on peer-reviewed cryptographic research, and built by a world-class, security-focused engineering team. However, as with any new technology, there is risk involved. Currently the team is focused on building and maintaining an open, permissionless system that is viable, robust, and justifiably reliable and secure for users.

Customizing Jaxx: How to Manage Tokens and Currencies

In line with Jaxx’s mission to unify the blockchain experience, we have integrated multiple tokens into our wallet over the past few months and continue to explore opportunities with other tokens. At this point, you can manage Bitcoin, Ether, Ethereum Classic, DASH, Litecoin and Augur’s REP in Jaxx, and easily convert them right in the wallet using ShapeShift.

 

While offering the option to hold several different tokens, we take into account that some users might only transact in one token or a select few. Also, given our users are based in different countries across the globe, we provide a series of fiat currencies. With our users in mind, we’ve introduced a feature that allows users to select which tokens and currencies are displayed by default and how to hide the rest.

 

Demo on Customizing Jaxx

 

In the video below, Annie from Jaxx will show you how to customize your Jaxx wallet so that you can add and sort the tokens and currencies that you want to see.

 

Her Jaxx wallet on iOS initially supports Bitcoin and Ethereum tokens only, in Canadian and US currencies. By going to “wallets” nested in the hamburger menu on the top right hand corner, you can add a few more or all of the tokens that Jaxx offers to the main interface, and display more or all of the currencies. You can also customize the order that tokens and currencies appear in by dragging and dropping them.

 

If you accidentally unchecked a token you have funds in, don’t worry. When a token is hidden, you won’t lose any of your funds; they will be sitting there until you re-activate it.

 

In any case, don’t forget to back up your wallet and secure your 12-word mnemonic phrase. Only get your Jaxx wallet from Jaxx.io and trusted stores. 

 

 

Jaxx Becomes the First Multi-Platform Wallet To Offer Augur “REP”

Integration comes as AppStore approves Ethereum Classic and Litecoin goes live
 
Toronto, ON – October 6, 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, today announced a historic partnership with the Ethereum-powered prediction market Augur. Jaxx’s integration with Augur’s currency, REP, will allow users to access the token on seven different platforms, with iOS in the works. First announced in early 2015 and spurred by a successful crowdfunding through the sale of its token, Augur aims to allow users to trade on the outcome of events and for the market to then leverage that crowd-sourced information. REP’s availability on Jaxx will allow users to manage REP in one place, providing more convenient and superior access for users to enter prediction markets, both for those posing questions and thousands of others betting on the likelihood of future events.
 
CEO of Jaxx Anthony Di Iorio explains, “Augur is a genius concept. We are extremely excited to be integrating REP because it’s been surging in growth since it entered beta and is now becoming a hot commodity. Augur has been building decentralized prediction market whereby people can earn cryptocurrency by simply guessing correct on future events, as well as contribute to an innovative forecasting tool and community. We have developed a great friendship with the team at Augur and are looking forward to providing our customer base with the most user-friendly way to manage their REP on computer, device or phone.”
 
Augur’s Director of Marketing Tony Sakich said, “We are thrilled to be launching our token. It is something we’ve looked forward to since the very first days of the project. REP will be a huge hit on Jaxx; it’s my default wallet and it’s incredibly versatile.”
 
Sakich added, “Augur incentivizes market participants to reveal what they think will happen, rather than what they hope will happen, and REP will be used to power the predictions and earnings. We are also excited to announce that it will be available for trade against other cryptocurrencies, on Poloniex and Kraken initially, and more exchanges to follow.”
 
The integration of Augur comes just days after Ethereum Classic was approved by the Apple App Store, meaning the world’s fifth most valuable digital currency is now available on the Jaxx wallet for iPad and iPhone users. Litecoin has already been pre-approved by Apple, and Jaxx has submitted a new version of its wallet, complete with Litecoin and REP, for AppStore review.
 
Technologist Charles Hoskinson, Founder of IOHK and proponent of Ethereum Classic, said, “Every cryptocurrency requires a diverse set of reliable, secure and easy to use wallets in order to grow and thrive. Jaxx has focused enormous effort and resources on delivering one of the best in class and easiest to use wallets in the space. It’s great to see Jaxx supporting ETC. I think this is will be great relationship for both communities.”
 
Since launching in June 2016, more than 50,000 users have downloaded Jaxx.
 
Anthony Di Iorio said, “Jaxx’s mission is to bring blockchain technology to the masses by providing easy to use resources, tools and products that unify blockchain communities. We are seeing a growing number of users rally around this emerging technology and will continue providing easy to use blockchain solutions and true freedom of choice.”

Jaxx Blockchain Wallet To Add App Store-Approved Litecoin to All 9 Platforms

Fourth most valuable virtual currency will be live early October

 

Toronto, ON – September 21, 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, today announced plans to integrate Litecoin into its suite of software wallets on all of its desktop, mobile, and internet extension platforms. The integration will come into effect in early October, following significant community demand as well as pre-approval from Apple’s App Store development team, who last month listed nine approved tokens available on the iPad and iPhone. Litecoin, now just three weeks shy of its 5th birthday, is the fourth most valuable cryptocurrency by market cap, valued at approximately $180 million USD.

Jaxx Founder and CEO Anthony Di Iorio said, “We received countless requests from the community to add support for Litecoin, and we knew it was already accepted by Apple on the AppStore, so for us it’s a perfect fit and makes the most sense right now. Litecoin has stood the test of time; it’s very popular at number four, and it boasts better transaction times than Bitcoin.”

 

Charlie Lee, Creator of Litecoin, said, “I created Litecoin to complement, instead of compete, with Bitcoin. I’ve always envisioned a future where people transact in multiple different cryptocurrencies. Jaxx is one of the easiest to use wallets and I’m excited to be able to hold both my bitcoins and litecoins in the same wallet.”

 

 

Andrew Vegetabile, Director of the Litecoin Association, added, “Jaxx, like many of those within the Litecoin community, believes in the fact that we are part of one larger family of cryptocurrency. Having Litecoin integrated with Jaxx allows our community members, who are also members of other communities, to feel a sense of unity when accessing platforms that allow multiple cryptos. This partnership enables those cross-community members to access their various cryptocurrencies in one platform without having to worry about keeping up with multiple wallets and applications.”

 

Litecoin is one of the globe’s most trusted cryptocurrencies and a leading alternative payment system. In conjunction with its Jaxx integration, Litecoin will use Q4 2016 to carry out memory usage improvements, faster signature validation, SegWit integration, and potentially, confidential transactions.

 

Litecoin’s integration comes just a fortnight after Jaxx added support for Ethereum Classic and Dash before it. Jaxx will announce the addition of several more tokens for integration into their suite of wallets in the coming months.

 

“We have always been pro-technology and pro-choice. One of our primary goals is to give people options in a constantly evolving digital age. We are proud to be the one-stop shop for people managing their digital wealth; customers can now access their portfolio of coins, trade them, and hold onto their keys without having to trust a centralized exchange,” said Di Iorio.

 

Since launching in June 2016, over 50,000 users have downloaded Jaxx.

 

About Jaxx:

Jaxx is a multi-token blockchain wallet that provides a unified experience across 9 platforms and devices, including Windows, Apple and Linux desktops, Apple and Android mobile devices and tablets, as well as Google Chrome and Firefox extensions.

About Litecoin:

Litecoin was created in October 2011 by former Google engineer Charlie Lee. It was built to improve upon bitcoin by giving users faster transaction times through a 2.5 minute block generation time, compared to bitcoin’s 10 minutes. Litecoin has become one of the globe’s most trusted cryptocurrencies and a leading alternative payment system. In 2016, Litecoin has been added to major exchanges such as GDAX, developed a partnership with Ledger, and will soon celebrate its 5th anniversary by producing 500 limited edition Litecoin hardware wallets.

New Major Jaxx Release on its way; will include full Ethereum Classic (ETC) integration

ETC-post-Image-cropped***UPDATE – Ethereum Classic has been released!!***

A few weeks ago, I announced that Jaxx would not be integrating Ether Classic anytime soon. The rationale was twofold. First, I believe that we jumped the gun with our DAO efforts and wasted resources aiming to become a “DAO command center”. Lesson learned. Second, we had already committed to a short-term dev schedule that included the launch of Dash, a complete menu overhaul, new features that allow sorting and hiding of tokens and currencies, various other UI work allowing us to support more tokens, and a new express and custom wallet setup procedure for new installations of Jaxx.

 

Today I am happy to announce that not only were we able to complete these above tasks, but also, in our spare time, we were able to get ourselves ready for Ethereum Classic integration. In the coming days Jaxx will be releasing a major upgrade which will include full ETC support, including a simple way to split ETH / ETC right in Jaxx.

 

Ethereum Classic is the 6th highest blockchain token by market cap, and ideologically, I have never been averse to supporting it. If I was a maximalist, I never would have founded Ethereum and would still be proclaiming Bitcoin as the be all and end-all. I am pro-technology and all for individual choice. Jaxx shares a similar philosophy.

 

Adding ETC just makes sense for Jaxx: we’ve received tons of requests from both ETC fans and ETH fans and all those in between to provide integration. People need ways to store ETC outside of exchanges, and our customers (and I) need a simple way to split ETH as well as have an easy path to sell (via shapeshift), or manage their ETC. Soon they will be able to do so across 9 platforms and devices using Jaxx. The new release will be pushed in the next few days.

 

Jaxx Wallet Adds Dash Integration & New Custom Features

 

Toronto, CA – Today, Jaxx blockchain wallet has taken its latest step forward in its mission to become the definitive, cross-platform interface for blockchain technology with its integration of Dash, one of the most popular tokens in the cryptocurrency space.

 

The new Dash integration, which enables users to send, receive and manage their Dash tokens, marks the beginning of Jaxx’s next phase of development, which will see the onboarding of more tokens while helping to broaden and support the wider blockchain ecosystem with new back-end tools. As with previous Jaxx token integrations, users can now also buy and sell Dash directly in the wallet via the convenience of Shapeshift.

 

“Jaxx supports and is very active in the Bitcoin and Ethereum ecosystem, now we’re excited to be joining the vibrant Dash community”, stated Jaxx CEO and Founder Anthony Di Iorio. “We had put a call on social media asking which tokens we should add next, and Dash by far was the most vocal and enthusiastic”, Di Iorio continued. 

 

Released via an update across all 9 platforms and devices, the new version of Jaxx also marks the debut of a customizable multi-token display. This feature enables users to select the tokens they wish to have enabled and displayed, as well as the order they appear on the main screen. This new visual experience works in tandem with the recently added base currency display options and the overall redesign of Jaxx’s menu layout to make for a sleeker, more customizable user experience.

 

“It’s our goal to provide an interface and user experience for blockchain that’s tailored for mass adoption,” stated Anthony Di Iorio, “similar to what the browser enabled for the internet, or the graphical user interface did for the personal computer, continued Di Iorio.” Another key tenet of Jaxx’s approach to development and growth is to provide back-end tools and infrastructure that benefits and decentralizes the entire blockchain ecosystem.

 

Jaxx desktop, mobile, and extension versions can be installed at jaxx.io, or by visiting the Apple App Store, Android Play Store, or Google Chrome Store for their respective versions. For media inquiries and partnership opportunities please contact [email protected]

The Fintech and Blockchain World Expo has been postponed

The following is an important announcement concerning the forthcoming Fintech and Blockchain World Expo.

 

After consulting with several of our major event partners, as well as conducting a thorough internal review, we have decided to postpone the Expo to a future date yet to be determined.

 

The principal reason for the postponement is the number of conflicting, similarly themed events taking place on and around the same time as the Expo. Some of our major event partners felt that postponing the Expo to a less crowded time period would result in a greatly improved experience for all Expo attendees, participants, and collaborators.

 

Planning and executing an event like the Expo requires an intense amount of work and internal resources, and one of the other reasons we’re postponing the event is to refocus some of our efforts on projects that have been left underserved in the run-up to the Expo. We think we can better serve the blockchain community by redoubling our efforts on these projects for the time being.

 

Existing ticketholders have been offered a refund.

 

For any questions or concerns regarding the Expo’s postponement, please contact Events Coordinator Matthew Brown at [email protected].

Jaxx 1.0.5 released with adjustable BTC fee for added flexibility

If you’ve been paying attention to Bitcoin network activity over the last couple of days, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that it’s spiked to levels not seen in over two years. That’s great news for BTC holders, but a pain for wallet users who have seen their transactions take longer and longer. With the release of Jaxx 1.0.5, this will no longer be an issue.

 

Jaxx 1.0.5 adds the option to select a “Slow,” “Average,” or “Fast” fee level, all of which are dynamically adjusted based on the level of current network activity. Now, users who are unconcerned with speed don’t have to face heftier transaction fees, while power users can ensure that their transactions will be accepted by the network very quickly.

 

What we have in place is not a perfect solution, but we felt it was important to update our current options so that current Jaxx users won’t be faced with interminable wait times for BTC transactions. In future, we will also be adding Custom fee option, allowing users to specify their fee well above or below even Jaxx’s recommendations. 

 

Previously, we had a floating fee rate based on the current transaction filesize, but this new solution is more effective for handling the current state of the Bitcoin network.

 

As per usual, iOS users will have to wait a little longer for Jaxx 1.0.5 due to Apple’s length app review process. If there was anything we could do about it, we would!
