Zcash goes live on Jaxx!

 

Integration complete on 7 of 9 Jaxx platforms.

 

Toronto, ON – November 1, 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, announced today that Zcash’s integration is officially complete. Due to significant community demand and interest in Zcash, Jaxx aimed to ensure the new coin was available as close as possible to its official launch date. As of Tuesday morning EST, Zcash is immediately available on 7 of Jaxx’s 9 platforms, with support for iPhone and iPad expected in the coming weeks.

 

Founder and CEO of Jaxx Anthony Di Iorio said, “There’s a lot of buzz and excitement around Zcash. Our team has worked hard to speed up the integration process, to test it appropriately, and to provide thousands of customers with access to this coin as soon as possible.”

 

CEO of Zcash, Zooko Wilcox said, “Although Jaxx wallet doesn’t presently support all of the advanced privacy features of Zcash, it is a very easy way for people to access, send, and receive Zcash coins. I’m excited about Jaxx adding support for Zcash because it works on many different platforms and devices and it already supports other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.”

 

Zcash works by way of zero-knowledge proofs; the protocol allows for two parties to receive verified information without knowing who each other are, or seeing the subsequent data exchange. Zcash trades and payments will see transactions published on a public blockchain, with the option of keeping the sender, recipient, and amount confidential.

Jaxx Blockchain Wallet Announces Plan to Integrate Zcash

Toronto, ON – October 25, 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, today announced plans to integrate Zcash into its entire suite of software platforms. The integration is scheduled to come into effect within days of the mining of Zcash’s genesis block on October 28. Zcash aims to give users the ability to make confidential and selectively disclosable transactions, powered by its cryptocurrency, ZEC. Zcash is positioned to provide the first privacy-centric payments that are inherent to the protocol.

 

CEO of Jaxx, Anthony Di Iorio said, “Zcash has garnered a lot of attention from all around the world and we at Jaxx have received a lot of interest from our users to have it available as soon as it launches. We will be able to offer Zcash on a number of different platforms, and are working well with the developers to enable a seamless integration. VCs have invested in Zcash, there’s cutting edge security technology behind it and that’s resulted in quite a lot chatter in the crypto community. Zcash holds an extraordinary amount of promise.”

 

Zcash works by way of zero-knowledge proofs; the protocol works such that two parties receive verified information without knowing who each other are, or seeing the subsequent data exchange. Zcash trades and payments will see transactions published on a public blockchain, with the option of keeping the sender, recipient, and amount confidential.

 

Zcash CEO Zooko Wilcox said, “Zcash is a new technology that lets you put encrypted data into a blockchain. Blockchains as they currently exist, don’t offer much (or any) control over the disclosure of the data that you put on the blockchain. Any data that you put in there is visible to all users of the blockchain. Zcash is the first protocol of its kind and is the accumulation of years of academic research, hard engineering work, and diligent security work. I’m happy to see that established companies with their own technology, strategy, and user base are already adding Zcash support. This is a sign of a robust and diverse Zcash ecosystem already beginning to grow.”

 

Zcash uses a type of zero-knowledge proof called a zk-SNARK, developed by a team of experienced cryptographers. zk-SNARK allow the network to maintain a secure ledger of balances without disclosing the parties or amounts involved. Instead of publicly listing spend-authority and transaction values, the transaction metadata is encrypted and zk-SNARK is used to prove that users are spending value they actually have ownership over.

 

Zcash becomes the fifth token Jaxx has added on its wallets in less than three months, following the successful integrations of Litecoin, Ethereum Classic, Dash and Augur; all within the world’s top ten list of cryptocurrency by market cap.

 

“Jaxx has always been blockchain agnostic, but we listen very closely to the requests of our users. I’m extremely proud of what our team has been able to achieve by including so many popular tokens in such a short time. We will continue working around the clock to make these integrations and will include even more in the near future,” said Di Iorio.

 

Since launching in June 2016, over 70,000 users have downloaded Jaxx.

Jaxx Becomes the First Multi-Platform Wallet To Offer Augur “REP”

Integration comes as AppStore approves Ethereum Classic and Litecoin goes live
 
Toronto, ON – October 6, 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, today announced a historic partnership with the Ethereum-powered prediction market Augur. Jaxx’s integration with Augur’s currency, REP, will allow users to access the token on seven different platforms, with iOS in the works. First announced in early 2015 and spurred by a successful crowdfunding through the sale of its token, Augur aims to allow users to trade on the outcome of events and for the market to then leverage that crowd-sourced information. REP’s availability on Jaxx will allow users to manage REP in one place, providing more convenient and superior access for users to enter prediction markets, both for those posing questions and thousands of others betting on the likelihood of future events.
 
CEO of Jaxx Anthony Di Iorio explains, “Augur is a genius concept. We are extremely excited to be integrating REP because it’s been surging in growth since it entered beta and is now becoming a hot commodity. Augur has been building decentralized prediction market whereby people can earn cryptocurrency by simply guessing correct on future events, as well as contribute to an innovative forecasting tool and community. We have developed a great friendship with the team at Augur and are looking forward to providing our customer base with the most user-friendly way to manage their REP on computer, device or phone.”
 
Augur’s Director of Marketing Tony Sakich said, “We are thrilled to be launching our token. It is something we’ve looked forward to since the very first days of the project. REP will be a huge hit on Jaxx; it’s my default wallet and it’s incredibly versatile.”
 
Sakich added, “Augur incentivizes market participants to reveal what they think will happen, rather than what they hope will happen, and REP will be used to power the predictions and earnings. We are also excited to announce that it will be available for trade against other cryptocurrencies, on Poloniex and Kraken initially, and more exchanges to follow.”
 
The integration of Augur comes just days after Ethereum Classic was approved by the Apple App Store, meaning the world’s fifth most valuable digital currency is now available on the Jaxx wallet for iPad and iPhone users. Litecoin has already been pre-approved by Apple, and Jaxx has submitted a new version of its wallet, complete with Litecoin and REP, for AppStore review.
 
Technologist Charles Hoskinson, Founder of IOHK and proponent of Ethereum Classic, said, “Every cryptocurrency requires a diverse set of reliable, secure and easy to use wallets in order to grow and thrive. Jaxx has focused enormous effort and resources on delivering one of the best in class and easiest to use wallets in the space. It’s great to see Jaxx supporting ETC. I think this is will be great relationship for both communities.”
 
Since launching in June 2016, more than 50,000 users have downloaded Jaxx.
 
Anthony Di Iorio said, “Jaxx’s mission is to bring blockchain technology to the masses by providing easy to use resources, tools and products that unify blockchain communities. We are seeing a growing number of users rally around this emerging technology and will continue providing easy to use blockchain solutions and true freedom of choice.”

Jaxx Blockchain Wallet To Add App Store-Approved Litecoin to All 9 Platforms

Fourth most valuable virtual currency will be live early October

 

Toronto, ON – September 21, 2016 – Decentral, creators of the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, today announced plans to integrate Litecoin into its suite of software wallets on all of its desktop, mobile, and internet extension platforms. The integration will come into effect in early October, following significant community demand as well as pre-approval from Apple’s App Store development team, who last month listed nine approved tokens available on the iPad and iPhone. Litecoin, now just three weeks shy of its 5th birthday, is the fourth most valuable cryptocurrency by market cap, valued at approximately $180 million USD.

Jaxx Founder and CEO Anthony Di Iorio said, “We received countless requests from the community to add support for Litecoin, and we knew it was already accepted by Apple on the AppStore, so for us it’s a perfect fit and makes the most sense right now. Litecoin has stood the test of time; it’s very popular at number four, and it boasts better transaction times than Bitcoin.”

 

Charlie Lee, Creator of Litecoin, said, “I created Litecoin to complement, instead of compete, with Bitcoin. I’ve always envisioned a future where people transact in multiple different cryptocurrencies. Jaxx is one of the easiest to use wallets and I’m excited to be able to hold both my bitcoins and litecoins in the same wallet.”

 

 

Andrew Vegetabile, Director of the Litecoin Association, added, “Jaxx, like many of those within the Litecoin community, believes in the fact that we are part of one larger family of cryptocurrency. Having Litecoin integrated with Jaxx allows our community members, who are also members of other communities, to feel a sense of unity when accessing platforms that allow multiple cryptos. This partnership enables those cross-community members to access their various cryptocurrencies in one platform without having to worry about keeping up with multiple wallets and applications.”

 

Litecoin is one of the globe’s most trusted cryptocurrencies and a leading alternative payment system. In conjunction with its Jaxx integration, Litecoin will use Q4 2016 to carry out memory usage improvements, faster signature validation, SegWit integration, and potentially, confidential transactions.

 

Litecoin’s integration comes just a fortnight after Jaxx added support for Ethereum Classic and Dash before it. Jaxx will announce the addition of several more tokens for integration into their suite of wallets in the coming months.

 

“We have always been pro-technology and pro-choice. One of our primary goals is to give people options in a constantly evolving digital age. We are proud to be the one-stop shop for people managing their digital wealth; customers can now access their portfolio of coins, trade them, and hold onto their keys without having to trust a centralized exchange,” said Di Iorio.

 

Since launching in June 2016, over 50,000 users have downloaded Jaxx.

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]

Why Ashton Kutcher & Akon are Tuning into Blockchain Technology

For many, especially individuals content with the status quo, it is unfathomable to predict the progress of future technology. For others, the idea of using decentralized strategies to further our technological autonomy has fueled ambition to create new and disruptive technologies.
 
For example, the blockchain is a technology that allows databases to be shared across a network of computers. Information on the blockchain exists on all computers (or nodes) on the network, and each block represents an up-to-date record of whatever information is being stored. The first and best-known application of the blockchain to date is the digital currency Bitcoin. However, the technology has many other potential uses, some that could have the capacity to reframe our social relations and power dynamics. The blockchain’s ability to facilitate transparency and disintermediate trust suggests blockchain adoption will bring on a paradigm shift in our culture.
 
So what do innovations like these mean to technophobes or people not particularly well-versed in technology? Disruptive technologies like the blockchain could mean that individuals no longer have to rely on a centralized authority to control social, economic, and even political transactions. This realization has gained the attention of the following celebrities who have been able to help close the gap between tech fanatics and mainstream populations:
 

1) Ashton Kutcher

The actor, producer, and now investor, has had his fair share of success acting in films such as No Strings Attached and The Butterfly Effect, along with TV roles in Two and a Half Men and Netflix original The Ranch. Kutcher, who co-founded his own venture capital firm in 2010, A-Grade Investments, has been a longtime fan of blockchain technology and Bitcoin. In a 2013 video, Kutcher spoke at TechCrunch Disrupt NY about the power of decentralized technology:
 

“…what can decentralized technology do? Imagine if we could decentralize [the] issue of security… the notion that we could civically monitor each other in an anonymous way actually keeps the anonymity of the Internet, we don’t have to worry about Big Brother and that same infrastructure that built out bitcoin could be used in the security industry for mass good.”

 


 
Kutcher also sees the political value of blockchains — especially with regards to proposals by two of the current US Presidential candidates for remittance policies that would obstruct migrant workers’ abilities to send money to their home lands.


 
Kutcher’s advocacy as a leader in disruptive technology could encourage a growing number of people to embrace blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. It’s what celebrities do best — create trends and start conversations on these topics.
 

2) Akon

Recording artist and producer, Akon, has been a vocal supporter of blockchain technologies and cryptocurrency. When he is not making hits, he is busy doing philanthropic work. Most recently, he helped provide electricity to over 600 million individuals across Africa. Through his cryptocurrency advocacy, Akon has been a proactive voice for reclaiming personal autonomy through technology.
 
From promoting Bitcoin and digital currencies in his home country of Senegal, as well as across West Africa, Akon is hopeful for the future of charities and other initiatives. As he explains:
 

“Digital currency is going to be the future, and as you can see I can’t remember the last time I carried a wad of dollars in my pocket…there’s all these new innovative ideas, but one in particular, by the name of bitcoin… [it’s] going to change the world from a money transactional standpoint not just for Africa, but for everywhere.”

 
The message is clear: financial systems, as we know them, are changing. Blockchain technology has the potential to streamline access to financial services, override corporate influence and open up new markets wherever wealth disparity exists. This is not to say that this technology will immediately or permanently solve global economic inequality, but it throws a wrench into the system, empowering those who wouldn’t have had the chance to be prosperous. Celebrities like Akon are helping to make this happen.
 

3) Imogen Heap

As the only female artist to have won a Grammy award for engineering, the “Hide and Seek” singer has always been a leader in tech innovation in the music industry. For example, Heap invented and designed musical gloves to manipulate sounds with hand gestures that can be used to produce music.
 
Now, Heap has embraced Ethereum (co-founded by Decentral’s CEO Anthony Di Iorio), a decentralized blockchain platform that can execute peer-to-peer “smart” contracts. By working with coders to develop a publishing method that is provably transparent, Ethereum can automatically distribute payment for sales of all copyrighted content, essentially eliminating the need for a middleperson or centralized authority. Her Dapp (decentralized app), Mycelia by Heap, will allow individual components of songs (such as a beat or a hook) to be licensed and monetized, with the owner of the content losing less (or none) of their revenue to corporate rentiers.
 
This concept isn’t restricted to music. Since the digital age, creative industries such as books, films, and visual art have experienced a loss of control over their content. When physical properties get digitized, they can be reproduced and shared by a global audience without creators receiving revenues from it. With the blockchain, respect for artistic property is being reclaimed and Imogen Heap wants to be the leader of the revolution. Her single “Tiny Human,” which is only available for purchase with ether (the fuel that powers the Ethereum network), is solidifying Heap as a foremost innovator of music distribution using blockchain technology.
 

4) Richard Branson

Entrepreneur and billionaire Richard Branson has also been an avid promoter of Bitcoin and blockchain applications. In addition to acting as an advocate for cryptocurrencies and disruptive technologies, he has invested in cryptocurrency companies (e.g. BitPay), hosted an exclusive digital currency conference on his own private island, and onramped Bitcoin as an accepted form of payment for his space travel initiative, Virgin Galactic. In a discussion with Argentinian President, Mauricio Macri, Branson outlines how Bitcoin can offer individuals:
 

“Greater levels of control, freedom and scrutiny over what happens with our money, Bitcoin addresses these concerns and that is why so many people believe it represents the future. While many of us are excited about the possibilities Bitcoin has to offer, I’m not sure any of us would argue that it comes without problems.”

 
An extremely powerful and a high-profile celebrity, Branson can use his fame to spark overdue and meaningful conversations with decision-makers about cryptocurrencies and disruptive technology and, in turn, explore applicable use-cases.

5) Mike Tyson

Boxing bad boy Mike Tyson has been an avid participant in the Bitcoin revolution. Working in partnership with Bitcoin Direct, Tyson recently unveiled two Bitcoin-related initiatives: Mike Tyson Bitcoin, a Bitcoin ATM, and a digital wallet, the Mike Tyson Digital Wallet. Underlying both products is Tyson’s interest in increasing awareness about Bitcoin and encouraging non-specialists to use the cryptocurrency. As a celebrity, Tyson is interested in using his celebrity status to promote discussions about Bitcoin and its potential to incite positive change:
 

“People don’t really understand a currency based on numerical equations. I personally still don’t … but I’m grateful to be a part of the revolution and hoping that my participation in this space will lead to more conversations and help increase knowledge and awareness.”

 

 
While Tyson’s initiatives are still in their relative infancy, such endeavours offer insights into Bitcoin and blockchain technology test-cases. By investing in products aimed at non-specialists, celebrities like Tyson make accessible what may otherwise come across as exclusive or obscure technologies.
 
Disruptive and decentralized technologies are the future and we have just begun the journey. As more and more familiar faces get on board with blockchain technology, the gap between the tech industry and mainstream culture should definitely begin to narrow. Can you imagine our current society without the influence of the Internet? Neither can we. It’s everywhere. The question is, will blockchain technology be the next Internet, and what will its capabilities and influence be? All we know is that the future is here and it’s knocking on our doors. Will you let it in?
