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.
20170925:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 25th:

In our edge-case work from last week we’ve identified a new “show-stopping bug” that’ll get our attention today. We’ve a clear path to resolving this one and expect to square it away and be back to testing, pronto.

20170927:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 27th:

We’ve deployed a significant upgrade to the Jaxx platform, our version 1.3. This version includes significant backend improvements that the process of integrating BCH into our v1.2 series exposed as necessary. 1.3 removes the largest roadblocks to BCH integration – we do, however, need to do the integration & test it still. This work will begin late in the day today.

20170928:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 28th:

Testing of BCH on our new (1.3) release has begun and is progressing well. We’ll not be through it all today and we’re not going to tempt fate by releasing this on a Friday. Could you imagine? We’ll continue testing tomorrow & likely into early next week. Stay tuned, we’re moving forward.
20170929:

#BCHinJaxx Update for September 29th:

We pick up today right where we left off yesterday. Regardless of how well it goes we’ll not be releasing it on a Friday afternoon. We’ll keep pushing and update you again Monday morning with out plans for the week.

 

20171002:

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 2nd:

Good Monday morning – we didn’t get ourselves to a testable release on Friday – we continue our work here today with that goal.

 

20171003:

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 3rd:

Testing BCH in our 1.3 continues well. We’ve completed testing on the server side and have moved to our front end tests. Progress.

 

20171004:

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 4th:

Testing has gone well enough that we’ll be starting a build that includes BCH. This build won’t be released today – but assuming it goes well, we will release BCH in our Chrome & Android versions, tomorrow.

 

20171005:

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 5th:

In order to initialize your BCH wallet in Jaxx you will need to update your instance of Jaxx to the most recent 1.3.2. BCH will not be supported in older versions of Jaxx. We have included code dependencies necessary for BCH support in our 1.3.2 release but we have not enabled BCH YET. We have a small amount of testing remaining before flipping that switch. Depending on how those last tests go tomorrow, we may be in a position to enable BCH before the weekend. If not – we will inform you – we will look to make this release next week.

 

20171006:

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 6th:

It will have to be next week; for now we’ll wish you a happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving. We’ll be back in our office and working towards BCH releases Tuesday 10th October.

20171010:

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 10th:

We’re back in the saddle after a long holiday weekend. We’ll continue pushing to test and verify BCH in our 1.3 release. We’ll keep this post updated as work progresses through the week.
20171017:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 17th:

 

It’s been a week since we last posted our daily update; we’ve been quiet but we’ve been working. We’ve got BCH completed and incorporated into the front end of our 1.3 releases. Before we will activate it in your wallet, however, we still have work to do on the back end BCH nodes. That work is ongoing – see below for specifics on what we’re doing, right from the keyboards of our developers on the project.

In plain language, we are pursuing two development solutions concurrently to solve our problems indexing and parsing the BCH chain.

*10th October:*
– Writing a tool that will repair BCH addresses that incorrectly show zero-balance due to bad indexing
– Address diagnostics for correct balance verification addresses.

 

*11th October:*
– Writing a tool for converting addresses between BCH and BTC formats, which is the main reason for addresses giving no balance.
–  Writing a parsing tool for the blockchain to have a functioning parser.

 

*12th October:*
– Created base utility which makes rpc calls against the BCH blockchain and maximum number of blocks.
– Added logic for converting block index into block hash and reading the block. Parsed result to create a cache for both block details and transactions. Worked on inserting the cache into MySQL, having an issue with BLOB inserts.

 

*13th October*
– Resolved binary/BLOB conversion issues; working on bulk MySQL updates.
– Resolved MySQL bulk insertions and ran through insertion tests. Hit an RPC timeout issue.
– After team discussion, we put retry logic into the new tool and it started processing; this isn’t returning all the transaction details. Trying a REST API call instead.  

– Investigated call and will experiment further once first experiment completes.
– Turned on the REST API and started updating the indexer to extract the transaction details.


*16th October*
– Updated schema to reflect changes made on Aurora; removal of 32 byte hash transaction and BLOBs.  Tested REST API block call, started to add support for vin and vout entries.
– Writing parsing routines for vin and vout.
– Completed vin/vout code, rewrote and tested caching system (for MySQL updates) and started import.
– Working on empty vout values, code currently errors and skips over.

20171018:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 18th:

Work continues in earnest on our two production solutions surrounding the indexing of, and interacting with, BCH. We’ve also begun a third, experimental, approach. Notes from our dev teams on these projects:

– Input indexing and tests
– Modified indexer to account for new data model from yesterday
– Checking addresses on BCH Insight to see how they’re built
– Working on tool to build addresses according to different formats

– R&D on indexer infrastructure
– Developing Performance Profiler
– Multithreaded I/O scheduler

 

20171019:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 19th:

We’ve been updating our cloud architecture to use Insight’s bch implementation api.  Specifically we’ve been compling their api and the necessary supporting libraries. We’ll then be building the bch blockchain such that we can do indexing & query the blockchain in a more useful manner.

A more specific rundown from one of our devs: “Looked into what is required for Insight configuration to support BCH. Continued with Insight configuration; modified configuration but decided to wait on re-indexing for the moment while I copied BTC blockchain to a separate directory in order to experiment with Insight. Had unexpected “stat” issues when copying the files but was finally able to copy and verify. As requested, looked into removing blocks after BCH, found a possible solution but will need further work. Bottom line parse the block files, look for height 478558 and delete everything after (including 478558). As a backup, started compressing my local copy of BCH. Received docker file and started to look at Insight integration – wasn’t able to find direct docs.

 

20171020:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 20th:

With respect to the Insight implementation mentioned: node is running but API not responding correctly. Suspect configuration issue – will address this today. Other specifics:

– Output spending: verification of outputs, will go more in depth tomorrow once the master list of addresses is on-hand.
– Modified stored procedures according to data model changes
– BTC/BCH address adapter (this is work in progress)

With respect to R&D:

1. R&D on indexer infrastructure
1.1. Refactoring
1.1.1. Tooling
1.1.2. Architecture/cleaning
1.2. Benchmarking
1.2.1. Current RPC offering (slow)
1.2.2. Direct reading

 

20171023:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 23rd:

– Running address tests and Working on the algorithm for BTC -> BCC address conversion
– Tooling, Benchmarking, and Profiling; reviewing mathematically formal cases

We’ve been preparing end-to-end test cases for tomorrow. We’re excited and looking forward to the outcomes of those tests.

 

20171024:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 24th:

We’ve begun testing BCH in the wallet. In our primary production solution for BHC: Indexing is complete and we left the tester running overnight to get a good batch of results to review this morning. In today’s tests we’ve been seeing transaction mempool conflicts and another issue in the front end where a GET to the tx/send endpoint doesn’t update transaction history.

Development of our secondary production system continues. From our lead developer on the project: “Verified BCH state – completed 70% of the blockchain loading; very slow. Then resolved BCH Claim issue when still attempting to claim after a successful txn, added transactions messages and removed commented code.”

 

20171025:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 25th:

* AWS Volume expansion for staging: researched best practices for AWS Volume resizing; worked out a series of steps to update the AWS staging volume. Started to shutdown the staging instance but found the “delete-on-termination” flag was set to TRUE. Found an article that describes how to update an already running instance but the tone suggested it “should” work. Decided to do the snapshot without bringing down the instance. Instead of resizing the root volume, will create a new volume from the snapshot and mount it to staging instead; this is the preferred approach. Created new volume from snapshot, updated mount point and restarted BCH Insight daemon. Finally, end-to-end Insight BCH testing.

* Testing BCH transactions send receive process, Coding transactions parser, confirmations counter, Balances updater.

 

20171026:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 26th:

Today we have been:

– Made utxo call not return utxos that are spent in a transaction in the mempool
– Included unconfirmed txs in transaction list call
– Working on unconfirmed transaction details call more fully (this remains in-progress)
– Reviewed BCH Claim process and raised points regarding the reason we decided to query BTC instead of only from BCH. Will explore this deeper tomorrow.
– Spent time going through BCH performance changes for claim calculation. Still need to confirm on waiting until restore history completes before starting the next.
– Preparing for further BCH Insight end-to-end testing. (BCH Insight responds to all queries; however, all the values are zero. The Bitcoin_ABC version of the blockchain does contain the correct values but unsure why Insight isn’t picking it up – more work here is required.
– Wallet-side will need some code changes to handle emergency switch overs (once Insight is working stably). More importantly will need to discuss changing the version byte to prevent users from unintentionally sending BCH to a BTC wallet or BTC to a BCH wallet. Continuing to looking Insight BCH to determine why the queries are having an issue.

 

20171027:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 27th:

– resolved the UTXO / mempool issues
– resolved unconfirmed transaction issues
– explored BCH claim process; preparing for exception testing next week
– explored “The zero problem” from yesterday; despite Insight indicating the synchronization was finished, it wasn’t. So test cases were referencing data from yesterday which wasn’t available yet. Planned management of this and set re-testing plans for Monday.

 

20171030:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 30th:

Today we’ve been pursuing BCH in Jaxx with:

– R&D on indexer infrastructure with byte-level parsing of the blockchain.
– Benchmarking REST API
— Testing REST API block call, doing some basic initial benchmarking and looking into possible parsing solutions
– Discussing possible parsing solutions, including the byte-level experiment.
– Looking into mempool failure issue, causes, possible solutions and approaches
— Determined to increase memory for the moment and possibly use a stream to parse the resulting JSON. This will be tested ASAP.
– Checked status of BCH Insight, read up on November 13 target changes for Bitcore ABC and spun up a new instance to test Bitcore ABC 0.15.1

 

20171031:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for October 31st:

– Solved the mempool failure issue;
– Completed front-end test cases;
– Rolling out new Insight instance compliant to BCH 13th November changes (will continue this, tomorrow)
– Completed benchmarking REST API; update discussions of parsing solutions held with key team members; adjusted and outlined next-steps for work here.

 

20171101:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 1st:

– Documentation; prep’ing for new-hire onboarding
– BCH version update (see this news site for details on 13th november updates  )
– Testing transaction sending; unconfirmed balance fluctuation during/after send. Found the problem with data inconsistency; developing solution to this bug will be straightforward

 

20171102:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 2nd:

– We believe we’ve got our primary solution to a BCH back end operating smoothly enough to take it to production.
— To that end we have begun both user acceptance testing and regression testing on all eight platforms users can interact with Jaxx on. We will be thorough with this before we push live into production.

 

20171103:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 3rd:

– User acceptance testing continues to go well – we’re half-way through these tests. Work will continue Monday.
– Regression testing across all 8 platforms we support also has progressed well and without errors today. We’re not-quite to half-way through these tests.

 

 

20171106:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 6th:

We’re excited to announce that both Front-end and Back-end testing has gone well and we are progressing with a staged roll out of BCH to our user base.

The roll out will occur in stages to help us manage the load we expect to see created from the over 400,000 Jaxx users. The stages will progress as follows:

November 6th: a large block of Chrome and Android users will see BCH support in Jaxx.

November 7th & 8th: increased numbers of Chrome and Android users will see support for BCH in Jaxx. All users of the Mac, Windows and Linux Desktop Jaxx Applications will see support for BCH.

November 9th: all users on Desktops, Android and Chrome will see BCH support in Jaxx.

An update to the Apple App Store will be made shortly; at the time of this post we have yet to submit the iOS update to Apple for approval.

Recall: you are in complete control of your assets through their private keys. You should back-up your 12-word Masterseed to be sure you never lose access those assets. Your keys, your funds, and your wallets are all in your control; we do not have access, ever. You should write down your 12-word Backup Phrase found by touching Menu > Tools > Backup Wallet and store that phrase in a safe and secure place. Conveniently, this phrase is all you need to pair your wallet from one platform to another.

 

20171107:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 7th:

We can report that the staged roll-out of BCH in Jaxx is proceeding as planned. Another large group of Android and Chrome users have access today; all users of Mac, Windows and Linux desktop users have access today. Further roll-out to Android and Chrome will follow tomorrow.

 

20171108:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 8th:

We’ve rolled out BCH to another large block of Android and Chrome users. The staged roll out process is going well – we’ve not had any significant issues.

You might see issues claiming BCH in Jaxx if you have a PIN active protecting the wallet. A hotfix was built today and will be released this afternoon; the workaround is to temporarily disable the PIN on your wallet and claim the BCH without the PIN active. Touch: MENU > Settings > Setup Security PIN

 

20171109:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 9th:

We’ve expanded the roll out per our plan, again. Most users of Jaxx have access to BCH now. Three items to be aware of:

– the hotfix solution to the security PIN preventing BCH claims has been implemented and works. This is no longer an issue.

– an update to our iOS app for Apple users is pending approval with Apple. This will be available to download shortly – keep an eye on your App Store updates section.

– You need to be running the latest version of Jaxx (that’s v 1.3.6). Once you are running 1.3.6, simply touch Menu / Wallets / BCH to initialize your BCH wallet. Once initialized you will be able to view your wallet and touch ‘claim’. Wait for a few moments for the balance to show up – approximately 3 minutes.

 

20171110:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 10th:

We’ve continued our roll out of BCH to new block of users. We’ve been keeping a close eye on our BCH backend as transaction load has increased. BCH transaction volume is up – we’re paying close attention this weekend and will continue our roll out Monday.

 

20171113:

 

#BCHinJaxx Update for November 13th:

Good morning – a short note to confirm that we are 100% rolled-out with BCH on our Chrome Extension, Android, Mac, Windows and Linux desktop versions. iOS will follow shortly.

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.
