30 Days of Jaxx, Day 18 – Jaxx Announces Support of the DA PowerPlay Token

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 18  – Jaxx Announces Support of the DA PowerPlay Token

21st September 2017 / Decentral – Toronto

DA Powerplay offers an advanced system for algorithmic trading of crypto assets.

The DaPowerPlay platform utilises blockchain technology to empower individuals to lever algorithmic trading strategies. DaPowerPlay allows individuals to automate the management of their digital assets against a risk tolerance profile customizable to their comfort and goals.

“Setting up crypto-trading strategies is still an overly complex task. Simplifying this process and providing innovative new tools is one of our main goals. We want to introduce more people to the world of crypto-trading while also providing an efficient and effective method for the pros! We’ve worked for years to make our platform as user-friendly as possible, while also implementing a level of depth that veteran traders won’t find anywhere else. We’re excited to see our tokens in the hands of our users and support in Jaxx makes that easy.”

Anthony Di Iorio “DA Power Play puts an end to the headaches of crypto-trading and places a variety of tools in the palm of traders’ hands. We’re glad to support their token in Jaxx”

Daniel Zakrisson, co-founder of Cofoundit, reminds Jaxx users, “Tokens created by Cofound.it projects – like DaPowerPlay and the DPP token – are usually issued immediately and supported from day one in Jaxx. Tokens will be immediately visible in Jaxx. However, these tokens are locked for transfer until the contribution period is over, in order that they not interfere with the token crowdsale process. If the token crowdsale ends early, the tokens will be unlocked for transfer earlier, usually within 2-3 weeks in order for exchanges and exchange services to list them. All of this is well communicated by the teams directly, so please follow our news to be kept up to date.”

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 17 – Jaxx Announces Support of the EOS Token

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 17 – Jaxx Announces Support of the EOS Token

20th September 2017 / Decentral – Toronto

EOS is the blockchain operating system for commercial scale decentralized applications. Application developers need more than a set of block producers aggregating transactions – they need API nodes, seed nodes, database indexes, storage, and hosting. At a million transactions per second each node of a high-performance blockchain is required to achieve 100’s of megabytes per second per connection. This is trivial for large data centers, but inconceivable for home users. This is where EOS comes in.

Anthony Di Iorio is impressed with EOS’s structure, “EOS architecture & intentionally cooperative network will enable block producers to offer a quality of service unique in the cryptocurrency world. They have a novel and powerful take on how a high performance blockchain should run.”

Daniel Larimer, CTO at Block.one & EOS said, “Our high performance architecture is designed to facilitate efficient unidirectional streaming rather than less efficient bidirectional protocols. EOS enables parallel execution, asynchronous communication and EOS separates authentication from execution. We’re excited to bring this protocol. To ensure inclusivity, EOS Tokens have no pre-determined price; rather price is set by market demand. This mimics mining without giving potential unfair advantages to large purchasers.”

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 16: Jaxx Announces Support for Aragon Network Token Jaxx Wallet

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 16: Jaxx Announces Support for Aragon Network Token Jaxx Wallet

19th September 2017 – Toronto

Aragon.One & Jaxx announce support in the Jaxx wallet for the ANT token.

The Aragon Network aims to be the first decentralized jurisdiction – the first decentralized venue for dispute resolution. Aragon will provide an optimal environment for decentralized organizations to thrive. Token holders will be able to change subscription fees and minting rate, decide which services to provide, vote on capital allocations or investments, and to self-upgrade the network.

Anthony Di Iorio, CEO of Jaxx and co-founder of Ethereum said “Aragon is the first DAO to act as a digital court. Luis & Jorge are solving the two main hurdles to make decentralized organizations widespread: upgradeability and decentralized arbitration.”

Luis Cuende is highly motivated, “Our goal is to provide a way for people to easily and securely run their organizations in a decentralized manner. We believe that disintermediating human trade  is the first step towards a more fair, efficient world. By giving everyone the chance to be in control of their financial lives and the ability to run any kind of organization, we look to solve many of the issues people, especially in the developing countries, are facing by not having access to banks. We believe – like Anthony does – in a decentralized future. We’re working to empower the decentralized ecosystem!”

About Aragon:

We believe that the blockchain and the Internet are changing the incentives for companies to exist, and we are building tools for the next generation of companies that will take advantage of these changes. Aragon was born to disintermediate the creation and maintenance of companies and other organizational structures. Aragon was founded by Luis Cuende and Jorge Izquierdo.

30 Days of Jaxx Day 14 – Security in Jaxx

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 14: Security in Jaxx

15th September, 2017 – Decentral – Toronto

On Day 4 of our #30DaysOfJaxx post we introduced you to Dr. Shu Wang, our new Chief Security Officer. Shu has taken the reigns of our security operations. He and his team are working every day to improve Jaxx’s security across all nine platforms we support.

Jaxx uses the 12-word masterseed to empower you with complete control of your wallets. Our work to build a highly secure platform will be ongoing – we will continue to toil daily to ensure Jaxx is both a beautiful & secure interface to your blockchain life.

Security however is not just up to us. You have a role in keeping your coins and tokens secure. Here’s how we recommend you maximize your own crypto-safety:

  • Beware. Understand your exposures and behave appropriately to your risk tolerance.
  • Update. We will continually work to improve Jaxx. You should always use most up-to-date version.
  • Secure your devices. Phones, desktops, browsers: secure the device that you access Jaxx through with passcodes. Remember, if your device has been compromised (such as a malware infection) a malicious user can potentially steal your funds. Use passcodes!  
  • Hot VS Cold. Understand the difference between hot wallets and cold storage. (We will write to you about this in a future #30DaysOfJaxx post).
  • Understand: there is no “absolute” security. Computer software/hardware systems are very complex and new ways of hacking coming out every day. For instance, a new vulnerability was in the news yesterday.

If you’d like to chat with us about security or about Jaxx in general do feel welcome to reach out to us on our general twitter at http://twitter.com/jaxx_io or in our Reddit community http://reddit.com/r/jaxx . For specific support issues find us on http://twitter.com/jaxx_support

Thank you for using Jaxx!

Jaxx Announces the Addition of Wings.AI token to the Jaxx Wallet

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 12: Jaxx Announces the Addition of Wings.AI Token to the Jaxx Wallet

13th September 2017 – Toronto

Wings Foundation & Jaxx announce support in the Jaxx wallet for the Wings DAO Token.

WINGS is a blockchain platform that seeds and nurtures a community dedicated to the launching, backing and promotion of new projects proposals through a fluid organizational model referred to as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). DAOs implement self-determining and independent organizational governance, management and operations using immutable blockchains and smart contracts execution. WINGS combines several concepts, ranging from attention rewards, forecasting markets, smart contracts, governance models and federated funds security. In doing, the platform encourages the WINGS community to identify and promote high-value proposals that have higher chances of positive outcomes.

WINGS DAO ownership tokens are secured by blockchain technologies and smart contracts. The control of the DAO remains in the hands of the token owners. Activity is visible on secure public ledgers such as Ethereum and Bitcoin.

“WINGS creates a decentralized forecasting ecosystem that gives tangible incentives for WINGS token holders to put the effort in making the best available choices to maximize their rewards. Support for our token in the Jaxx ecosystem is a major factor in our future success”, said WINGS Core Team member, Sebastian Stupurac

Anthony Di Iorio, CEO of Jaxx, “WINGS novel use of swarm intelligence through decentralized forecasting markets, smart contracts generators, DAO contracts, deep learning and machine-based predictive modeling make them a great addition to the Jaxx wallet ecosystem. We’re looking forward to helping them grow”

About Wings:
WINGS’ mission is the promotion of new, open decentralized technology architectures development and applications, in particular the promotion and maintenance of the WINGS protocol and the corresponding technology, as well as the promotion and support of applications using the protocol. By using the WINGS DAO protocol, new organizations, powered by efficient decision making and decentralized governance, will revolutionize the world by serving the everyday needs and tasks of ordinary people.

An Update on BCH in Jaxx

The decentral & blockchain ecosystem has been growing rapidly this year and we’ve been working hard to stay right on its forefront. There are so many tokens & projects we are eager to support! The innovation and creativity we see in this industry are inspiring. This past Spring we began planning a significant expansion of our own infrastructure to support our rapid growth and to facilitate much more rapid integration of new tokens in the future.

Jaxx uses Insight Server – the same service used by several other major platforms. Insight, you may be aware, decided not to support Bitcoin Cash. This left us with a rather lot of work to sync and reindex the BCH blockchain on a completely new system.

This process has taken longer than expected. The BTC blockchain is quite large!

We’re quite close to being complete with BCH integration. We spent most of this past week testing and, as of the end of day Friday, still see performance issues. I promise that when we do release BCH support in our wallet that it will be reliable. User experience & user control are our highest priorities here at Jaxx. The masterseed, the interface and the nodes we run are the source of that empowerment; our team is proud of our platform & we’ll always hold ourselves to these high standards.

We’re not just employees here – we’re users, too, and we’re also anxious to be able to control our BCH in our own Jaxx wallets. We’ll be ready soon. In the meantime, if you received BCH in the August 1st fork and have not moved it off to a different address, that BCH is safe and will be accessible in Jaxx next week.

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 14th:

An update from Nilang, our CTO, and the back-end dev team: Today we’re continuing our work from yesterday in verifying information from our current indexer. We’ve discovered that our method has some limitations due to the amount of data we’re requesting from the client, which is a new issue we’ll need to address, ASAP. It’s likely we will be testing late tomorrow.

20170915:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 15th:

Today’s update on BCH in Jaxx: Our efforts yesterday verifying data from the indexer progressed well. We’ve not had any new surprises or challenges and have been able to move forward strongly. We’ll be testing this afternoon.

 

20170918:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 18th:

Today’s update from Nilang, our CTO: “We are continuing testing &  validating transaction data on the BCH chain. Testing on Friday went well but we’re not yet at a point to be confident enough to take it live. Testing continues!”
20170919:
#BCHinJaxx Update for September 19th:
Yesterday’s testing went well in that we have been able to move through several significant items on our list to confirm. Parsing & indexing has been a challenge! There still remain four significant hurdles for us to clear before we can call ourselves ready to take this code to production. Specifically (our largest issue) surrounds blocks with broken transaction data – how we manage this. Testing continues!

 

20170920:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 20th:

Testing will continue later today after we finish debugging work from yesterday related to our indexing process. We’ve made progress from yesterday but are still not in a place to deploy this code.

 

 

20170921:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 21st:

Debugging the broken transaction issue in our indexing process continues. We’re well past half-way through the list. We’re still not in a place to take our code to production but we have moved closer from where we were yesterday. We’ll continue sweating today!
 

 

20170922:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 22nd:

Though we’re not done the debugging work on the indexer we do continue to move forward towards the finish line. In preparation to actually go live we’ve begun testing new transactions and shapeshifting. Our eye is on edge cases & on identifying potential bugs. We continue!

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.
