30 Days of Jaxx, Day 25: Jaxx Announces the Addition of TokenCard to the Jaxx Wallet

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 25: Jaxx Announces the Addition of TokenCard to the Jaxx Wallet

2nd October 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced today that the TokenCard token, TKN, will be integrated and available in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

TokenCard founder, Mel Gelderman, created TKN as a means to make it easy for consumers to spend cryptocurrencies at the grocery store, tap-to-pay gas pumps, at ecommerce sites like Amazon, or to pay regular subscriptions like Netflix.

“As TKN is meant to make it easy for consumers to spend their crypto assets with a card, Jaxx integration makes TKN accessible to a network of over 400,000 crypto enthusiasts in the Jaxx ecosystem. TKN is now live in Jaxx  – Jaxx users can easily shift their other crypto assets into TKN today. This Jaxx integration is a big step on the path to TokenCard’s goal of removing friction for consumers interested in spending their cryptocurrencies quickly and conveniently.”

TokenCard is a debit card built on Ethereum smart contracts. It is usable at payment terminals worldwide. Users are able to fund the card from Jaxx, today. The TKN asset contract accrues a 1% fee on debit card transactions using non-TKN tokens. For users who use TKN for transactions, there will be no fee – making it advantageous to use Jaxx to hold TKN.

Anthony continued, “TokenCard’s smart contract for the token sale triggered this hard cap 26 minutes after the sale began. That level of demand makes it clear: they’re a bright future for TokenCard. The team at Jaxx and I are happy we can support TKN.”

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 23: Jaxx Announces the Addition of Salt Lending to the Jaxx Wallet

28th September 2017 / Decentral – Toronto – Today Jaxx is excited to announce support for the SALT Membership token, SALT, in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

SALT lets consumers leverage their blockchain assets to secure cash loans. SALT makes it easy for individuals and organizations to get fiat-cash loans without having to sell their favorite investment – their bitcoins, ether, or other crypto assets.

Anthony Di Iorio sees SALT as representative of the trend towards decentralized business models, “We’ve entered the age of decentralization. Diamonds, deeds, derivatives – the world’s assets are migrating to blockchains. The SALT platform facilitates loans secured by this rapidly expanding class of decentralized assets. I’m glad we can support their team and support the SALT membership token in Jaxx.”

SALT streamlines every step of the loan. The application process focuses on the value of the borrower’s blockchain assets instead of their credit score or income. Borrowers are automatically matched with capital from the extensive network of SALT Lenders. SALT then keeps borrower’s collateral assets safe in a fully-audited, ultra-secure architecture during the life of the loan so borrowers and lenders can transact with confidence.

“We’re very excited to have SALT supported in Jaxx’s awesome wallet.” Said Shawn Owen, CEO of SALT. “We’re incredibly grateful to be partnering with such a great wallet and we look forward to integrating SALT’s service into the Jaxx experience in the future!”

Decentral Inc, the community hub for blockchain & decentralized technologies and home of the Jaxx Blockchain Wallet Interface, is excited today to announce the release of Jaxx 1.3.0
