Press Release – Anthony Di Iorio Invests in Enigma

Toronto, Ontario – 11th September 2017.

Anthony Di Iorio Engages with Enigma as an Investor

Enigma is creating a decentralized, open, secure data marketplace that allows people, companies and organizations to contribute and consume data. Anthony Di Iorio is co-founder of Ethereum & the CEO of the Jaxx blockchain interface.

Speaking about Anthony Di Iorio, Can Kisagun, co-founder said,

As we embark on this ambitious journey to create the data marketplace for the web, we are thrilled to be partnering with Anthony Di Iorio from Jaxx | Decentral. Given its simplicity and ease of use, Jaxx will be instrumental in getting ENG tokens to the masses.

Speaking about Enigma, Anthony Di Iorio said,

The market surrounding crypto-assets is expanding and so should the investment tools and underlying financial infrastructure. The Catalyst Platform is well timed – it’s a platform that provides the tools and data necessary to quickly build your own crypto hedge-fund. Catalyst is the first application to make use of the Enigma decentralized data marketplace protocol.

I’m excited to make this investment & to join Enigma group contributing to the project – the work to enable developers to build, test, and execute micro crypto-funds is particularly exciting as it pushes the decentral economy forward. I am looking forward to exploring potential synergies between Enigma and Jaxx –  Guy, Can, & their team at Enigma have my support!

The key new utility Enigma brings to the table is the ability to run computations on data, without having access to the raw data itself. For example, a group of people can provide access to their salary, and together compute the average wage of the group. Each participant learns their relative position in the group, but learns nothing about other members’ salaries. It should be made clear that this is only a motivating example. In practice, any program can be securely evaluated while maintaining the inputs a secret.

Today, sharing data is an irreversible process; once it is sent, there is no way to take it back or limit how it is used. Allowing access to data for secure computations is reversible and controllable, since no one but the original data owners ever see the raw data. This presents a fundamental change in current approaches to data analysis.

Jaxx Announces Partnership with Musiconomi

TORONTO, ON, August 24, 2017 — Musiconomi, the blockchain-based music ecosystem, has today announced that Jaxx, the leading multi-asset digital wallet, as its official wallet partner. Following the pre-sale for Musicionomi (MCI) tokens due to commence August 29, 2017 and public crowdsale starting August 31, Jaxx will integrate Musiconomi’s Ethereum-based token into its platform. The integration will let supporters send and receive MCI tokens and manage their own keys via Jaxx’s easy-to-use app. 

“Musiconomi is delighted to announce the pre-eminent Ethereum wallet as its official partner,” Musiconomi cofounder and CTO Dan Phifer said. “We are excited to offer Jaxx’s intuitive, secure, and compelling user experience across multiple platforms to our supporters. Jaxx has a tremendous network of partnerships and we see this as an opportunity to engage with them and add value in a way that will also benefit users of the Musiconomi platform.”

Each artist is in complete control of determining the reward for their albums and tracks, letting them choose between higher revenue or more promotion at the granularity of an individual track.

Entrepreneurial music enthusiasts, such as marketers and audio technicians, are also able to use the platform to provide and be compensated for their expertise. MCI token holders will gain access to the Musiconomi platform’s plethora of features including playlists, radio streaming, virtual merchandise, and ticket storefronts.

Musiconomi is the second startup to pass through Cofound.it’s crowdsale incubation program and will leverage the Cofound.it Priority Pass mechanism as a part of the sale.
