New Major Jaxx Release on its way; will include full Ethereum Classic (ETC) integration

ETC-post-Image-cropped***UPDATE – Ethereum Classic has been released!!***

A few weeks ago, I announced that Jaxx would not be integrating Ether Classic anytime soon. The rationale was twofold. First, I believe that we jumped the gun with our DAO efforts and wasted resources aiming to become a “DAO command center”. Lesson learned. Second, we had already committed to a short-term dev schedule that included the launch of Dash, a complete menu overhaul, new features that allow sorting and hiding of tokens and currencies, various other UI work allowing us to support more tokens, and a new express and custom wallet setup procedure for new installations of Jaxx.

 

Today I am happy to announce that not only were we able to complete these above tasks, but also, in our spare time, we were able to get ourselves ready for Ethereum Classic integration. In the coming days Jaxx will be releasing a major upgrade which will include full ETC support, including a simple way to split ETH / ETC right in Jaxx.

 

Ethereum Classic is the 6th highest blockchain token by market cap, and ideologically, I have never been averse to supporting it. If I was a maximalist, I never would have founded Ethereum and would still be proclaiming Bitcoin as the be all and end-all. I am pro-technology and all for individual choice. Jaxx shares a similar philosophy.

 

Adding ETC just makes sense for Jaxx: we’ve received tons of requests from both ETC fans and ETH fans and all those in between to provide integration. People need ways to store ETC outside of exchanges, and our customers (and I) need a simple way to split ETH as well as have an easy path to sell (via shapeshift), or manage their ETC. Soon they will be able to do so across 9 platforms and devices using Jaxx. The new release will be pushed in the next few days.

 

Jaxx Wallet Adds Dash Integration & New Custom Features

 

Toronto, CA – Today, Jaxx blockchain wallet has taken its latest step forward in its mission to become the definitive, cross-platform interface for blockchain technology with its integration of Dash, one of the most popular tokens in the cryptocurrency space.

 

The new Dash integration, which enables users to send, receive and manage their Dash tokens, marks the beginning of Jaxx’s next phase of development, which will see the onboarding of more tokens while helping to broaden and support the wider blockchain ecosystem with new back-end tools. As with previous Jaxx token integrations, users can now also buy and sell Dash directly in the wallet via the convenience of Shapeshift.

 

“Jaxx supports and is very active in the Bitcoin and Ethereum ecosystem, now we’re excited to be joining the vibrant Dash community”, stated Jaxx CEO and Founder Anthony Di Iorio. “We had put a call on social media asking which tokens we should add next, and Dash by far was the most vocal and enthusiastic”, Di Iorio continued. 

 

Released via an update across all 9 platforms and devices, the new version of Jaxx also marks the debut of a customizable multi-token display. This feature enables users to select the tokens they wish to have enabled and displayed, as well as the order they appear on the main screen. This new visual experience works in tandem with the recently added base currency display options and the overall redesign of Jaxx’s menu layout to make for a sleeker, more customizable user experience.

 

“It’s our goal to provide an interface and user experience for blockchain that’s tailored for mass adoption,” stated Anthony Di Iorio, “similar to what the browser enabled for the internet, or the graphical user interface did for the personal computer, continued Di Iorio.” Another key tenet of Jaxx’s approach to development and growth is to provide back-end tools and infrastructure that benefits and decentralizes the entire blockchain ecosystem.

 

Jaxx desktop, mobile, and extension versions can be installed at jaxx.io, or by visiting the Apple App Store, Android Play Store, or Google Chrome Store for their respective versions. For media inquiries and partnership opportunities please contact [email protected]

Jaxx 1.0.5 released with adjustable BTC fee for added flexibility

If you’ve been paying attention to Bitcoin network activity over the last couple of days, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that it’s spiked to levels not seen in over two years. That’s great news for BTC holders, but a pain for wallet users who have seen their transactions take longer and longer. With the release of Jaxx 1.0.5, this will no longer be an issue.

 

Jaxx 1.0.5 adds the option to select a “Slow,” “Average,” or “Fast” fee level, all of which are dynamically adjusted based on the level of current network activity. Now, users who are unconcerned with speed don’t have to face heftier transaction fees, while power users can ensure that their transactions will be accepted by the network very quickly.

 

What we have in place is not a perfect solution, but we felt it was important to update our current options so that current Jaxx users won’t be faced with interminable wait times for BTC transactions. In future, we will also be adding Custom fee option, allowing users to specify their fee well above or below even Jaxx’s recommendations. 

 

Previously, we had a floating fee rate based on the current transaction filesize, but this new solution is more effective for handling the current state of the Bitcoin network.

 

As per usual, iOS users will have to wait a little longer for Jaxx 1.0.5 due to Apple’s length app review process. If there was anything we could do about it, we would!

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.
