Jaxx Version 1.3.8

Jaxx Development Update: version 1.3.8 released on all platforms

Earlier this morning Jaxx v1.3.8 went live on Android, Chrome, Windows, Mac, and Linux. The update to our iOS client has been sent to Apple for their approval. This release includes new features and a few bug fixes of note. Be sure you have your 12-word backup phrase written down before you update Jaxx. New features you’ll find in Jaxx include:

  • ETH Gas Limit Control: you now have more flexibility setting ETH transaction gas limit maximums and minimums. This feature is particularly helpful when participating in ICOs.
  • Paper Wallet: simple functionality has been included to allow you to transfer paper wallets into Jaxx.
  • Pricing Data: we’ve updated the way we manage coin and token prices to be faster and more frequent.

The Jaxx 1.3.8 release includes fixes to a handful of bugs in earlier releases. Those updates include:

  • BTC History: transaction histories for BTC wallets display correct balances.
  • ETC Spendable: spendable balance is checked before allowing a send-transaction. attempt. This forces confirmation available funds match the send request.
  • ETH Balances: ETH wallets now show accurate balances. The bug causing balances to display the actual value divided by 10 has been resolved.
  • ERC20 Spendable:  spendable balance is checked and verified before attempting a send transaction for all ERC20 tokens.
  • ShapeShift Unavailable Message: new pop-up notice in Jaxx on tokens Shapeshift has made “temporarily unavailable” in their service.

You can upgrade your Jaxx client on your favourite platform by visiting our download page today. We value your input – reach out to us on twitter or register a request with our Support team. And always remember: you should write down your 12-word backup phrase and keep it in a safe place.

Jaxx Development Update: Android 5.1

An announcement from our Development team: Jaxx will no longer be available on devices running versions older than 5.1 of the Android OS. The Android OS releases known as Lollipop were released as early as 2014. Devices running Android OS versions that predate Lollipop (5.1) do not have the ability to handle the latest version of our Jaxx Wallet.

Users on Android 5.1 or older who have not backed up their 12-word backup phrase and who have also not ever paired their wallet on any of the other platforms Jaxx supports – iOS, Mac, Linux, Windows and Chrome Extension – should reach out to our support team for help.

 

Jaxx Development Update for December 1st 2017

Jaxx iOS

The Jaxx development team here at Decentral Inc. has been busy this Fall. We’re proud of our work offering our application across eight platforms and supporting dozens of exciting blockchain projects. We’ve made significant progress on our mission to deliver the best HD wallet in the world.

Infrastructure: We’ve increased and improved the infrastructure we use to operate nodes on the variety of blockchains we support. This added capacity makes Jaxx faster and more reliable than ever. We’ll continue rolling out new infrastructure (servers and systems) in December as expand to meet & exceed demand for Jaxx wallets.

Security Improvements and User Education: We’ve implemented an optional pin code to more strongly protect our user’s assets. This pin secures access in Jaxx to the screens that display the 12-word Masterseed “backup phrase” (BIP39). Users new to the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies often do not understand the power of the 12-word Masterseed structure we use in Jaxx. We never hold or control our user’s assets; those assets remain on their respective blockchains and the Masterseed is a powerful tool for controlling them. Adding pin functionality has been a great way to help new users understand how to use their Masterseed to pair their wallets across devices and to understand the Masterseed should be backed-up.

Asset Swapping with Shapeshift: We’ve made UI changes to make the swapping of tokens easier and more intuitive. Control of gas prices and clear confirmations have helped make Shapeshifting assets inside Jaxx easy.

Tokens and Coins Supported:

Several of the tokens supported in Jaxx are not available in any other wallet available on iOS. Tokens and Coins currently live in Jaxx include:

AION / Nuco CVC / Civic EOS GUP / Match Pool
ANT / Aragon CFI / CoFoundIt ETH / Ethereum MLN / Melon
REP / Augur CRB / CreditBit ART / Maecenas MCO / Monaco
BNT / Bancor DPP / DA Powerplay ETC / Ethereum Classic MCI / Musiconomi
BAT / Basic Attention DASH / Dash 1ST / Firstblood PPP / PayPie
BCAP / Blockchain Capital DGD / Digix FUL / Fuel POE / Po.et
BTC / Bitcoin DOGE / Dogecoin GNO / Gnosis PRE / Presearch
BCH / Bitcoin Cash DRT / DomRaider GNT / Golem QTUM
LTC / Litecoin EDG / Edgeless ICN / Iconomi RSK Testnet

SLT / Salt STX / Stox UKG / Unikrn
SAN / Santiment SWM / Swarm WINGS / Wings
SNT / Status PAY / TenX WRC / Worldcore
STO / Storm TKN / TokenCard ZEC / Zcash

Looking Forward to 2018: we expect the cryptocurrency and blockchain communities will continue their growth in 2018. The Decentral team will continue to expand the Jaxx platform to support the best and brightest blockchain projects.

Announcing STORM Token is Integrated in Jaxx; STORM will be tradable after the completion of the crowdsale completes

7th November 2017 – Decentral Community Space – TORONTO – Decentral Inc, home of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface and the Decentral Community announced last month that Anthony Di Iorio, founder of Decentral and CEO of Jaxx, and Co-Founder of the Ethereum platform, joined Bittrex CEO Bill Shihara, VoIP pioneer and Vonage founder Jeff Pulver, Alchemist Ventures co-founder Steven Nerayoff, and Zynga founding CTO Tom Bolich on the Storm Board of Advisors. In follow-up to that announcement, and in concert with the opening of the Storm Token ICO, Decentral announces support for the STORM token in the Jaxx wallet upon completion of the crowdsale.

Anthony Di Iorio said, “The Storm team has a novel and interesting approach to disrupting the freelancer and gig-economy; I’m excited to see their application of decentralized technologies take shape. I’m glad to announce that STORM is integrated in Jaxx today. STORM holders will be able to trade their tokens after the crowdsale ends.”

Storm Market allows people to request services like QA testing or machine learning, and select people to complete micro-tasks. Those awarded work are paid in STORM tokens, whose distribution is automatically managed via an Ethereal smart contract.

Simon Yu said: “Freelance workers are rapidly becoming the backbone of the global economy, but current banking systems, credit systems, and processing systems mean employers who need micro-transactions completed from their growing freelancer base face high fees and inefficient middlemen,” Simon continued, “Storm Market aims to transform the economy by creating a secure, decentralized, and gamified micro-task platform without costly transaction fees and cumbersome third-party relationships. Support for the STORM token inside Jaxx is a big step for us in that direction.”

Announcing BrickBlock Token, BBT, To Be Integrated In Jaxx

Announcing BrickBlock Token, BBT, To Be Integrated In Jaxx

31 October 2017 / Toronto – Decentral Incorporated, makers of the Jaxx Blockchain Interface, has announced today the Brickblock token, BBT, is to be supported in the Jaxx wallet ecosystem. Jaxx will be the official wallet of the Brickblock token crowdsale.

After raising $1 million USD during a short private pre-sale, Brickblock’s public ICO will commence on October 31.

Anthony Di Iorio, founder of Decentral, CEO of Jaxx and co-founder of Ethereum said, “I’m a believer in the power of decentralized technologies to disrupt existing markets. Brickblock have an ambitous project in front of them and we’re happy they have selected Jaxx as the offical wallet of their crowdsale.”

Brickblock is creating a blockchain-based platform for trading both cryptocurrencies and real-world assets. Brickblock believes investors looking to mitigate the risk of holding purely digital assets will be able to do so all from inside their platform. The Brickblock platform seeks to create access for investors to both classes of assets from a single, simple, powerful interface.

Through the effective use of smart contracts, order and issuing fees could be reduced to a fraction of traditional costs. Brickblock’s proposed blockchain-based solution enables vendors of in exchange-traded funds (ETFs), real estate funds (REFs), passive coin-traded funds (CTFs) and active coin managed funds (CMFs) to offer their investment vehicles alongside each other.

The company’s goal is to make investing cheaper, easier, and more secure by cutting out third parties from the transaction process. This is achieved by using smart contracts to automatically confirm the transfer of funds from the investor to the fund manager, and the assets from the fund manager to the investor.

Jaxx will be the official wallet for participants in the Brickblock token crowdsale, which opens 31st October, and is found at https://www.brickblock.io/tokens.

Announcing Inclusion of the Swarm Fund Platform Token, SWM, in Jaxx

SwarmFund Platform Token

Announcing Inclusion of the Swarm Fund Platform Token, SWM, in Jaxx

25th October 2017 – Decentral Community Space – Toronto – Today Jaxx is excited to announce support for the Swarm Fund platform token, SWM, in the Jaxx ecosystem.  

Swarm’s infrastructure platform provides a facility to create and operate asset-backed tokens. “Swarm’s launch represents the next iteration of crypto and blockchain technologies, while bridging the gap between traditional finance and the rapidly innovating cryptocurrency space,” said Joel Dietz, cryptocurrency pioneer, partner and co-founder of Swarm Fund. “The first wave of crypto was a peer-to-peer transactional system, with Bitcoin. The second wave came when Ethereum brought us smart contracts, and the programmability of crypto-tokens and other digital utilities. The third wave will be the securitization of those digital properties, backed by real-world assets such as real estate and brick-and-mortar companies, traded on the blockchain.”

Founded by Dietz, serial entrepreneur Philipp Pieper and fintech investor Timo Lehes, the Swarm Fund platform, powered by the SWM ERC20 token, enables the creation of asset-backed securities. Pilot funds built on the platform are expected to focus on distressed real estate, solar installations, software-as-a-service and cryptocurrency companies.

Anthony Di Iorio is excited about Jaxx support of the SWM token, “I’m determined to support interesting and effective applications of decentralized technologies to existing markets. The team at Swarm have built a platform that enables a novel approach to funding and investing in real estate projects. Integrating SWM into Jaxx is a great way for us to support the platform, the Swarm team and user community. We’re proud to support SWM in Jaxx once the token has distributed from its contract.”

About Swarm Fund

Swarm Fund is a fully decentralized capital marketplace that democratizes investing by using the power of the blockchain to open up high-return, alternative investment classes to smaller investors through asset-backed funds using cryptocurrency tokens. It makes traditionally exclusive investment opportunities, such as private equity and hedge funds, inclusive for the Swarm by pooling together smaller investments into larger, institutional-sized blocks. Swarm Fund also gives fund managers access to more capital from a new asset class of investors who want access to institutional-type investments, but don’t have the high minimums many institutional funds require. Pilot investment vehicles on the Swarm Fund platform include a Distressed Real Estate Fund, a Solar Energy Fund, and a Crypto Hedge Fund.

 

A Statement on Bitcoin Gold

bitcoin gold in jaxx

At this time we do not plan to support Bitcoin Gold in Jaxx. We are, however, monitoring the situation closely and with great interest.

As of the writing of this post, October 23, Bitcoin Gold does not have  fully formed consensus code or a functional codebase, they have not Implemented replay protection, or have adequate code for testing and auditing, or have publicly known code developers. The Bitcoin Gold codebase does however contain a private premine of 8,000 blocks (100,000 BTG) owned and controlled by those anonymous developers.

Of the concerns with BTG by far the one weighing most on our minds is the lack of replay protection. If Bitcoin Gold does not implement strong two-way replay protection your BTG and BTC might be vulnerable to attack if you send BTG transactions. Do recall our previous post on replay protection, here.

We do not currently have plans to support BTG in Jaxx. However, we will continue to monitor the BTG situation and will notify you of decisions we make here on our blog.

Our priorities are, as always, the security of our users’ funds. You will always have control of your assets and private keys through your 12-word backup phrase.

If the BTG development team see this message we’d like to encourage them to reach out to us on [email protected]
