Today, for day 8 of the
Seven Many Days of Jaxx, we’re pleased to announce that the next stage of our Jaxx DAO integration has gone live: our DAO wallet.The Android, Chrome, Desktop, and Firefox versions of Jaxx have already been updated, and the iOS version should go live within the next 24-36 hours, pending Apple’s standard review process.
The DAO has captured the imagination of the Ethereum community and beyond, and has been widely discussed in the mainstream media. For all of the chatter, there are still very few options for DAO tokenholders to actually manage their tokens.
Jaxx 1.0.1 now has a DAO wallet screen, which displays the current DAO token balance associated with your Jaxx Ethereum addresses. It also enables users to transfer in more DAO tokens, send them to external services, or shift/pool them between Jaxx addresses as desired. To verify which accounts were used to generate tokens, check Tools > Back Up Wallet > Display Private Keys > Display Ethereum Keys and look for the DAO icon. We do not currently have a DAO Transaction History ready, but it will be shortly.
Please note that in order to see your DAO token balance, you will need to have a pre-existing ETH transfer. Please also note that you will not be able to transfer from any DAO account that does not have an ETH balance as the transfer will require ETH. You will be prompted on the DAO wallet screen if you have DAO accounts with no ETH balance. Lastly, our multi-function camera button located on the main screen defaults to ETH view when you scan your DAO QR code. This is because we haven’t found a way to determine whether you’re scanning an Ethereum or DAO address. Best thing to do is use the normal send button and scan the QR code or paste in the address you are sending to. In our next update we’ll have a workaround wherein you are prompted which QR code type you’re scanning.
Please keep in mind that we’re developing completely new implementations of brand-new technology, and occasional roadblocks will occur. We’re working hard to make sure it works perfectly soon. If you have any questions or difficulties, please get in touch at [email protected]
As previously announced, we’re also working on a Proposals and Voting display that will let you browse and vote on Proposals directly within Jaxx. This is a major priority for us and we hope to have it ready before the first major Proposals’ voting periods have concluded.
Last week, we unveiled RocketDAO, our web portal for browsing, creating, submitting, and voting on Proposals. RocketDAO will be powered by Jaxx and will act as your complete DAO command centre, from which you can take advantage of all The DAO has to offer.
We have a few more announcements and reveals still to come this week, so keep your eyes peeled as the Many Days of Jaxx roll on…
