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.

Announcing New Dev Tools for the Community – 7 Days of Jaxx Extended

 

 

62981e6c77b0152e6b06455eb0169cffHi there! Exalted Materialization Sorceress (aka Decentral CTO) Chris here.
First things first: We’ve lied to you; “7 Days of Jaxx” isn’t actually 7 days. We’re going to keep the announcements and launches coming well into next week with even more reveals and projects. We’re on a roll and we’re not ready to bring it to a halt just yet, in fact, some of the most exciting stuff is still to come. Today we’re announcing a new project that will be of specific interest to the Ethereum and DAO dev community.

 

While Ethereum is one of the most exciting decentralized technology platforms to have emerged over the last few years, the Ethereum dev community has been hampered somewhat by the limited number of comprehensive, publicly accessible points of access to the Ethereum network. As part of our continuing mission to support the Ethereum and DAO ecosystems, Decentral is pleased to announce that we’re constructing an API built on a new, full Ethereum node.

 

This API is being developed in conjunction with CoinFabrik, and over the course of the following month, will become available for a selective rollout with interested partners to test load balancing and request queues. Our plan is to offer the same service to the public with a lower request threshold until our deployment architecture is fully tested and tuned. What’s more, this API will support a full DAO node structure, including the ability to query addresses for their voting history and DAO token transaction history, as well as detecting which accounts are tied up in Proposals and for how long. This API will allow for greater interoperability for Ethereum web app devs and contribute to the overall health of the ecosystem by allowing for additional redundancy. If you’re interested in participating in our trial phase, please email me at [email protected]

 

The first live deployment of our API (domain to be announced) will be within Jaxx itself, and is already helping to support our DAO integration process as well as our existing Ethereum functionality.

 

Our rollout continues tomorrow with Day 7, and will resume on Monday with Day 8.
