30 Days of Jaxx, Day 30: Looking Back and Moving Forward

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 30: Looking Back and Moving Forward

10th October 2017 / Decentral Community Space – Toronto – Today Jaxx pauses to take a look back at the 30 Days of Jaxx and a look forward at the near future of our community.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada and we’re still in a reflective mood. We’re big believers in the power of decentralized technologies, like blockchains, to empower individuals to better control their digital lives. We’re motivated to support the entrepreneurs and projects that are pushing that technology forward. Over the course of our 30DaysOfJaxx campaign we’ve been keen to highlight a few projects and platforms as they make a splash in the decentral ecosystem. We’re thankful we’re able to support these entrepreneurs by exposing them to the large and growing community of Jaxx users.

We’re also thankful for each user of our own blockchain interface, Jaxx. We’re committed to delivering a flexible and powerful tool for your use in managing all your blockchain assets. We’ve integrated 22 new tokens and coins over the course of our 30DaysOfJaxx. We’ll continue our work of identifying exciting new projects and we’ll keep listening to your requests for new integrations. The 30 Days of Jaxx have come to a close but we’ve only just gotten warmed up on our way to supporting a wide variety of crypto assets.

Along the way through the 30 days we took a few days out to highlight a few of the people who drive Jaxx forward. Dr Shu Wang, our new Chief Security Officer, leads our efforts to keep Jaxx a safe and secure platform. Addison Cameron-Huff, our General Counsel, brings deep experience in and knowledge of the blockchain legal landscape. Our team of developers are the beating heart of our platform.

In the future you can expect that we’ll continue our mission to support innovative projects in the decentral ecosystem. We’ll continue to build out our back end nodes to better and more rapidly support forks of the major chains. Most importantly we’ll ask for your feedback on http://twitter.com/jaxx_io and http://twitter.com/jaxx_support to help guide the future development of Jaxx.

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 26: Jaxx Announces the Addition of Matchpool to the Jaxx Wallet

3rd October 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced today that the Matchpool token, GUP, will be integrated and available in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

Anthony Di Iorio, founder of Jaxx and Ethereum, said “I’m driving Jaxx into different sectors in an effort to support the entire blockchain ecosystem and I believe the Matchpool project is a great player in matchmaking and dating market. I’m happy to support GUP in Jaxx.”

Anthony continued, “Dating services as a market – including online dating websites, dating apps and dating coaches – has been estimated recently to be a $2.5 billion business in the U.S.A alone. Matchpool’s attempt to disrupt this industry using decentralized technologies is a project the team at Jaxx is happy to support”

Matchpool is a decentralized matchmaking protocol which uses group dynamics to help participants match with each other. It can also be used as a more generic platform for any kind of paid membership community which can clearly define two sides of an interaction or market.

“Since it’s on a blockchain, there is also trust in the technology and fairness of rules/payments,” said Matchpool CEO Yonotan Ben Shimon. “In addition, on the Matchpool platform, anyone can create essentially a dating site. I want to do to dating platforms what wordpress did to blogs.”

A two-year roadmap is also laid out for launching and scaling the network, including a detailed specification of the Guppy token, which will play an integral role in its development. Learn more about Matchpool and the GUP token at http://matchpool.co

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

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!”

A Major Milestone in the Jaxx Product Timeline

26th September 2017 / Decentral Office Space / Toronto

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

In early August the process of incorporating the heavy BCH chain into Jaxx 1.2 exposed several areas for improvement to platform. The 1.3 release and the back-end performance improvements it carries have been the highest priority for the team since. New tokens – including BCH – can be rapidly integrated into the 1.3.x platform.

Users eagerly awaiting the integration of BCH into Jaxx should expect to see BCH support roll out in the 1.3.1 or 1.3.2 versions, shortly.

Jaxx 1.3.0 will be released on Android & as a Chrome Extension today, 26th September, and on Desktop & iOS in the following days.

The team at Decentral thanks each Jaxx user for their patience & feedback in the lead up to this release. We’re committed to delivering Jaxx as the most powerful blockchain interface available across all 9 platforms we support. Jaxx users will always be in complete control of their blockchain assets through their masterseed and should always feel welcome to reach out to us for support on @Jaxx_Support or to chat on @Jaxx_IO and Reddit.com/r/jaxx

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!

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.
