Jaxx 1.0 makes its official debut on all platforms – Day 3 of 7 Days of Jaxx

After a four-month beta period, an intensive security audit, and over 10,000 downloads, we’re pleased to announce that Jaxx, our multi-platform blockchain wallet, is now officially out of beta for all device versions. It’s been vetted and battle-tested, and ready to become your all-in-one digital wallet solution. Jaxx 1.0 is now available for iOS, Android, PC/Mac/Linux desktops, and as a Chrome/Firefox browser extension. Jaxx 1.0 supports bitcoin and ether, and will be adding full support for The DAO later this week, with many more coins and tokens to follow.

 

Jaxx

Our Vision and Mission

Our products are built around a few key principles:

  • We never store, distribute, or even have access to customer information or funds
  • We employ common cryptographic standards to that users will be able to regain access to their funds even if we go down
  • We dislike friction points, including passwords, and do away with them whevever possible; we start with ease of use, then build in optional security features
  • Our products are design-led, with a focus on accessible, intuitive user experience and inviting graphics

These principles have informed all of our products to date, including our web wallets EthereumWallet and RushWallet and the Kryptokit Extension, and Jaxx 1.0 represents the next step in our evolution as we work to unify the blockchain experience across devices. Our goal is for Jaxx to be nothing less than the definitive wallet platform for new and experienced users of Bitcoin, Ethereum, The DAO, and ultimately a wide variety of other coins and tokens.

 

Security, Consistency, and Accessibility

All versions of Jaxx are built on the same Javascript/HTML codebase, ensuring consistency of experience and design across all device versions, while also taking advantage of each device’s unique features. This method also ensures we can rapidly deploy new updates for all device versions to add features and respond to user feedback very quickly.

 

All balances and private keys are backed up by a single 12-word mnemonic, which can also be used to pair your wallet on multiple devices. This means that whether you’re at home or on the go, you’ll have secure, quick access to all of your funds and tokens. For added security in case any of your devices is compromised, an optional security PIN protects all functions that can be used to pair your wallet or remove funds.

 

 

Robust, Responsive Support

We know that for new and even seasoned users, the crypto space can be very confusing, even hostile, turning away many potential users and hampering community growth. Our Help Center breaks down Jaxx feature by feature in plain language, and our support team works hard to respond to any and all user issues and questions efficiently, often within just a few minutes. Whether you’re having trouble spotting a particular security feature or you’re confused about how to get your first bitcoin, we’re always happy to help and advise. You can reach us via the Support widget at Jaxx.io.

 

The Future of Jaxx

As Jaxx continues to grow, our ultimate goal is to become the command center for your digital life, including all of your coins, tokens, contracts, identity, etc. Our upcoming slate of integrations will greatly enhance Jaxx’s flexibility and functionality and get us closer to that goal. We were the first to unite Bitcoin and Ethereum in a single wallet, as well as the first to bring Ethereum to iOS, and we’re looking forward to a lot more milestones to come.

7 Days of Jaxx: What’s in the Box?

7 Days of Jaxx

 

Welcome to 7 Days of Jaxx! We’ve challenged ourselves to present 7 major initiatives, releases and announcements over the course of 1 week that we think the whole community will be really excited about.

 

We got the ball rolling yesterday with our launch of Jaxx 1.0 on iOS (let’s consider that Day 1), and tomorrow brings the rest of the Jaxx 1.0 rollout across the remaining platforms and devices. Today we’re revealing the revised design and concept for our Coin Card program. As for the rest, you’ll just have to figure ‘em out…

 

A couple of months back, we announced that we would be launching an initia2cards (1)tive that would enable the easy purchase of Bitcoin in Canada. Now, we are excited to let Canadians know that we’ve secured a partnership with Gateway Newstands, a Canadian company that has hundreds of convenience stores across the country, to stock Jaxx Coin Cards. We’re also excited to announce that we will also be adding Ether to the mix making it the first time ever Ether will be able to be bought with cash in stores. As we add more coins to Jaxx, these should also become available for purchase using Jaxx Coin Cards. Users just purchase the cards with cash, peel off a sticker to reveal a QR code, and scan it from their Jaxx wallet to import the funds, making the purchase and importing of coins quick, easy, and convenient. 

 

Jaxx Coin Cards are currently available only to Canadian users, but we believe our Cards are a much simpler, more efficient way to get quick access to funds than ATM systems or exchanges, and hope to expand the program beyond Canada’s borders in the near future.

 

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements as 7 Days of Jaxx continues!
