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

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]

On the Topic of Segwit2x VS Bitcoin Core and Replay Protection

On the Topic of Segwit2x VS Bitcoin Core and Replay Protection

Regardless of the outcome of the coming hard fork in November, your funds will be safe on both chains. Some websites claiming to be official have said that Jaxx will not be compatible with either of the chains. This is incorrect.

November’s Segwit2x hard fork is coming closer and the team here at Jaxx are monitoring developments in the conversations within both the Segwit2x and Bitcoin Core communities closely. There have been major developments in recent days that leave the question of how best to manage replay protection up in the air. Our intent is to implement a solution that ensures our users funds continue to be maximally secure. The specifics of how we accomplish this depend on the outcome of the fork.

Each user should understand: after the hard fork every transaction in both chains will be affected by replay attacks if neither chain implements replay protection. This is a concern for every individual in the entire community regardless of which wallet solution we each use.

There is good news for each of us. Regardless of the outcome of the Bitcoin Core VS Segwit2x fork there are steps Jaxx users may take to minimize the risk they’re exposed to:

After the hard fork – in both chains – the first transaction you do should be to transfer all your holdings from your current wallet to a  brand new wallet under your control.

Do see this link from Diogo Monica for more detail.

Jaxx mission is to continue to provide a secure and chain-agnostic platform that ensures you have complete control of your assets. Jaxx users are in complete control of their private keys through their masterseed; Jaxx never stores your keys server-side and never has access to your funds.

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.
