World’s Leading Multi-Asset Digital Wallet Will Become Universal Command Center for All Digital Assets, With Roadmap to Include Ripple, Monero, Tether & Dozens of Others

TORONTO May 22, 2017 Decentral today announced that its flagship product, Jaxx , the leading user-controlled, multi-asset, multi-platform digital currency wallet and exchange, has secured over 70 new partners and integrations on the way to bolster its mission to become the ultimate command centre for all things blockchain. Just as the browser unleashed the power of the Internet, Jaxx will be the tool that brings digital currencies and digital assets to the masses.

“We are bringing together all facets of the blockchain ecosystem with Jaxx to provide a universal interoperable interface so that non-technical people, like my dad, can easily use these decentralized technologies,” said Anthony Di Iorio, Founder and CEO of Decentral & Jaxx. “Simple tools and intuitive UI / UX will bring adoption to the masses and assist all projects and companies.”

The following partners will integrate with the Jaxx universal key management system and backend blockchain infrastructures to create a simple point of entry into various areas of blockchain technology–including user-controlled payments and exchange, identity, communications, value movement, privacy, smart contracts, document signing and decentralized storage:

These partners and integrations will continue to power Jaxx’s mission to create a unified, cross-platform experience for all blockchain assets. Jaxx aims to become the ultimate dashboard for all things blockchain, tailored to provide newcomers and power users with a simple, intuitive experience.

“We’re excited to partner with the like-minded team at Jaxx who are making it easy for users to securely manage and transfer their blockchain assets,” said Bill Shihara, CEO of Bittrex.com.

Jaxx also today announced its future coin and token addition roadmap and will be working with teams and communities from Ripple, Monero, Tether, Stellar Lumens, PIVX, Factom, Steem, NEM, QTUM, Bytecoin, Bitshares, MaidSafeCoin, Siacoin, Waves, Lisk, Omni, Stratis, GameCredits, Ardor, SingularDTV, Round, Decred, NXT, Byteball, DigiByte, FirstBlood, IExec RLC, Emercoin, Syscoin, Etheroll, Komodo, Namecoin, Storjcoin, Chronobank, Melonport, WeTrust, Counterparty, TokenCard, Matchpool, Edgeless, Xaurum, CreditBit, MonaCoin, NovaCoin, RubyCoin, Bitcrystals, BitShares, BlackCoin, Expanse, Gulden, Namecoin, NAV Coin, NEM, Peercoin, PotCoin, Tezos and Wings among others to bring more projects into Jaxx across all platforms and devices. These new tokens and coins join Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Augur, Golem, Gnosis, DigixDAO, Iconomi, Zcash, Dogecoin, RSK Testnet, and Blockchain Capital to make Jaxx the most versatile, non-custodial wallet with a built-in crypto-exchange available.

“We’re glad that Jaxx has decided to attempt Monero integration again, because we believe that users need more options with respect to Monero onboarding, not less, and welcome all work being done in that space,” said Monero Core Developer Riccardo “Fluffypony” Spagni. “As a company that operates in the Monero space, we are happy to provide them with as much support as possible, and look forward to a successful release.”

Jaxx will be present in New York at Consensus May 22-24, 2017 and at Token Summit May 25, 2017. Companies and projects interested in partnering with Jaxx to bring cryptocurrency to the masses are invited to reach out to Charlie Shrem, Director of Business & Community Development at Decentral & Jaxx.

Jaxx Dev Day: v1.0.4 is live, boasting new fixes and tweaks

 

Hey, Anthony from Decentral here. Many of you who have been using Jaxx for managing your DAO tokens have noticed that on the last couple of builds, Jaxx had trouble detecting DAO balances in the absence of an ETH transaction. 1.0.4 fixes this; DAO tokens sent or Shifted into Jaxx should no longer require an ETH transaction to become visible. This update is now available for all versions of Jaxx except for iOS. We are making an effort to get updates out swiftly on all versions, but Apple’s review process for iOS devices is proving to be a bit of an obstacle.

 

Please note that users *will* still need to have at least a small amount of ETH in DAO-holding Ethereum address(es) in order to be able to transfer their DAO tokens between accounts or out of Jaxx.

 

We’ve also added a couple more fiat base currency options (the Mexican peso and the Norwegian kroner). If there are users out there who want to see more added, we’d love to hear from you!

 

To iOS users who have been wondering when they can expect the ShapeShift update: we’re wondering the same thing. That version of Jaxx has been languishing in Apple’s review process for several times longer than normal, and we aren’t sure why. We’re just as anxious as you are!

 

Many of you have also been inquiring as to when our in-app DAO Voting and Proposal viewing system will be in place. We are still hard at work on it and hope to have it ready by next week. We have much of the back-end work done, we just need time to make sure that going live with it won’t adversely affect Jaxx’s general usability.


We are also still at work on RocketDAO, our web-based command centre for The DAO through which users will be able to browse, create, submit, and vote on Proposals, This is being developed in tandem and we are hoping to launch it in close proximity to the Jaxx voting capability update in order to ensure a seamless experience for all users.

 

Those of you who follow us on Twitter at @jaxx_io may have seen that we want the broader community’s opinion on which coins and tokens should be integrated into Jaxx next. We’ve already seen quite a few hands go up for Lisk, Dash, and Digix, but we would love to get more feedback, so please chime in at [email protected].

 

All versions of Jaxx can be downloaded from the Jaxx website.

HOLY SHIFT!! Jaxx adds ShapeShift for in-app BTC/ETH/DAO conversion (The Final Day of Jaxx)

It’s the final day of the Many Days of Jaxx, and we had to rest up yesterday, ’cause today’s a big one. The Jaxx-ShapeShift integration is finally ready to go, and we’ve just released it as part of Jaxx 1.0.2!

 

This release is available now for Chrome, Firefox, Android, and PC/Mac/Linux desktops, and will be available for iOS devices over the next 24-36 hours once it’s cleared Apple’s standard review process.

 

This feature can be used to quickly convert between the three options currently hosted by Jaxx – BTC, ETH, and DAO – and will also work for whatever coins and tokens we integrate in the future.

 

Jaxx users can open up the ShapeShift view by selecting the fox icon below the Amount bar on any wallet screen, or by entering “ShapeShift” into the Address bar. From this view, users can specify what coin/token type they would like to convert to, as well as view the current conversion rate for their selection and the minimum and maximum deposit allowed by ShapeShift. Users then simply enter the amount they want to convert (or “Shift”) in either fiat or the coin being converted and they’re good to go.
The Jaxx-ShapeShift integration is just the latest in what will be a wide variety of integrations designed to make Jaxx a unified blockchain command centre. I’d like to personally thank the Shapeshift team for the help with the integration and have to definitely give it up for our entire team here at Decentral.

 

Over the next while, we’ll be focusing on improving Jaxx’s performance, tightening up its UI, and addressing some of the bugs that have appeared in recent builds (eg. the difficulties with sweeping certain paper wallets).

 

Update, 4:40pm EST: We’ve just released a second update, which features a variety of UI fixes and tweaks, as well as some new fixes for the Transfer Paper Wallet feature.
