Happy Canada Day! Jaxx Liberty Beta Is Now Available.

Jaxx Liberty Beta Launch

Decentral, a leading innovator in blockchain technologies, founded by Ethereum co-founder Anthony Di Iorio, today announced the launch of Jaxx Liberty, a new cryptocurrency wallet that will redefine the way people manage, secure, and interact with their digital assets. Jaxx Liberty overcomes the fragmentation in the cryptocurrency landscape by providing users a single, unified experience for accessing the tools they use day-to-day to manage their digital lives across more than 70 cryptocurrencies.

“Before the web browser, adoption of the Internet was limited to tech-savvy early adopters. That’s the stage we’re at today with cryptocurrency,” said Anthony Di Iorio, CEO and founder of Decentral & Jaxx. “Jaxx Liberty is the web browser for your digital assets, empowering the masses to adopt the benefits of cryptocurrency and blockchain.”

Jaxx Liberty builds on the success of Jaxx, one of the most popular cryptocurrency wallets, downloaded by millions. The new interface introduces a unified dashboard and module-based approach to provide information that everyday people need to navigate the cryptocurrency ecosystem through features including news, market data, portfolio and a multi-chain Block Explorer. In keeping with Decentral’s strong values around privacy, Jaxx Liberty is built around a business model that does not collect users’ personal information and respects their autonomy. Jaxx Liberty, like all previous versions of Jaxx, is a free service.

“As the popularity of cryptocurrency continues to grow, the ecosystem has become increasingly fragmented,” said Di Iorio. “Jaxx Liberty takes an important step towards unifying and empowering the blockchain community to take control of their digital lives.”

Today’s launch of Jaxx Liberty, the flagship product of the Decentral Project, is the first in a series of products coming in 2018 aimed at informing and empowering the masses to take control of their digital lives through decentralized technologies like blockchain and cryptocurrency. In the coming months, Decentral will launch additional products including:

  • Decentral Unity (JXX) Loyalty Token – A rewards system to encourage people to use Jaxx Liberty and engage with our partners.
  • Decentral Academy – A trusted information portal for everyday people to access unbiased, comprehensive information about the power and potential of decentralized technologies like blockchain and cryptocurrency.
  • MyJaxx – A gamified experience to promote engagement with partners, designed to entertain and inform people as they navigate the Jaxx ecosystem.

The beta version of Jaxx Liberty is available today in Canada and will be rolled out globally in the coming weeks.

Decentral Appoints Gamification Pioneer Yu-kai Chou as Chief Experience Officer Visionary to Lead Gamification of Jaxx Liberty Platform

Yu-kai Chou

Decentral Inc.Canada’s leading blockchain company and the creator of the multi-platform, multi-currency digital wallet Jaxx, has announced world-renowned gamification pioneer Yu-kai Chou has joined its executive team as Chief Experience Officer (CXO).

Named the “Gamification Guru of the Year” in 2014, 2015, and 2017 by the World Gamification Congress and the Gamification Europe Conference, Chou will spearhead the company’s gamification efforts within Jaxx Liberty, the newly unveiled single, gamified interface for everyone to experience the blockchain ecosystem and the upcoming update to Decentral’s multi-cryptocurrency digital wallet and flagship product.

With an extensive background as a consultant to the world’s leading brands, including Google, LEGO, eBay, Huawei, and Volkswagen/Porsche, Chou is globally acknowledged for his unique insights into gamification and behavioral design.

Anthony Di Iorio, Co-founder of Ethereum and CEO and founder of Decentral said: “Chou’s hire marks an important point in the company’s history. We want to make the experience of interacting with our products as easy and as fun as possible for both our new and experienced users. The digital asset and cryptocurrency space is very complex and our goal is to make it more intuitive and simple but sophisticated. I believe Yu-kai is a valuable piece for solving that puzzle. I’ve studied his work for years and it’s a major development to bring him on.”

Chou said: “My focus is on amping up the game-like elements in Jaxx and making the user experience more fun and exciting. Based on my research and insight, we will be unveiling a wallet that delivers the best user experience on top of the best technology — combined in a blockchain interface that is intuitive enough to appeal to seasoned cryptocurrency enthusiasts and beginners alike.”

Chou is the author of Actionable Gamification, a critically acclaimed book on the new era of gamification and human-focused design. He developed the ‘Octalysis Framework,’ which is a renowned approach to behavioural design. This method is being used by corporate entities around the world — such as, Accenture, Fidelity and Hewlett-Packard — to increase participation and engagement of their respective work forces. Chou is a Founding Partner with the Octalysis Group, whose work has, by their own estimates, influenced more than a billion users globally. As a public speaker, Chou has spoken at Austin’s SxSW and for TEDx at Lausanne, where he delivered a popular speech on how gamification can improve the lives of everyday people.

“Blockchain will lay the foundation for the technology of the future. I’m excited to join the ambitious Decentral team and help the company maximize delight when people interact with anything related to the blockchain or cryptocurrencies,” concluded Chou.

Anthony Di Iorio Joins Atari on the Blockchain-Powered Gaming Project as Honorary Co-founder & Initial Investor.

Atari Token, the next generation platform for games and digital entertainment, has announced the addition of honorary co-founder, Anthony Di Iorio, to its ambitious blockchain project.

The project aims to create a revolutionary new decentralised platform that enables users to benefit from the value created through their time, effort and skill in games, digital entertainment and alternate realities. An ecosystem where virtual services and property can deliver real world value to the more than two billion people playing games annually. Di Iorio is one of the original founders of Ethereum and is the founder and CEO of Decentral whose flagship product is the multi-platform, multi-currency digital wallet Jaxx. He now serves as Atari Token Honorary co-founder and initial investor.

CEO of Atari S.A. and Atari Token Director Frédéric Chesnais said,

“We are delighted to be working with Anthony Di Iorio. His vision for the future of decentralised systems is very much aligned with our goals for the Atari Token platform. Forty years after Atari brought the world the VCS, Anthony has given us another validation that the Atari name will change the world again.”

In addition to Di Iorio, founders behind the Atari Token include Frédéric Chesnais (CEO of Atari), Ron Dimant (founder of game developer, MumboJumbo), and Daniel Doll-Steinberg (27 years building global platform companies). The four co-founders of the Atari Token platform bring together an unrivalled set of skills, spanning computer gaming, secure content management platforms, blockchain and decentralized systems, with an iconic brand. They are joined by Directors, Ian Livingstone CBE (HM Government Skills Champion for Games, previously Executive Chairman Eidos) and Jez San OBE (Founder, Funfair, ARC, Argonaut). By combining the skillsets of veteran game developers and experienced blockchain leaders, the Atari Token team is well positioned to deliver the revolution in game monetisation they envisage.

Anthony Di Iorio said,

As someone who grew up in the Atari age, and who understands the importance of how products are designed and developed, it’s extremely encouraging to see teams with vast experience creating systems that are not just user-friendly, but scalable and functional. The Atari team has a truly-game-changing concept that I’m excited to be involved with. Over the past number of years, I have come across a considerable number of blockchain projects but have always found myself most interested in companies aiming to create new economic platforms and monetization models.”

The Atari Token will be the in-network currency powering the Atari Platform Network. Di Iorio contributed the entire initial round of investment in the Atari Token token sale. The complete token sale process and product detail updates will be announced in the coming months.

Unveiling the Decentral Project at Official Consensus Industry Closing Event

Decentral Founder & CEO Anthony Di Iorio to Share Visionary Project With 1,000 Partners & Friends Aboard Yacht Cruise

Decentral Inc.Canada’s leading blockchain company and the creator of  multi-platform multi-currency digital wallet Jaxx, is proud to host the official afterparty for Consensus — the world’s largest blockchain conference — in New York City on May 16, 2018.

At the event, “United by Decentral,” Ethereum co-founder and CEO & founder of Decentral Anthony Di Iorio will reveal the Decentral Project, whose goal is to empower the ecosystem with unparalleled tools that will enable the masses to take control of their digital lives. Party highlights for the over 1,000 partners and guests of Decentral will include a presentation that will illustrate their new platform as well as surprise giveaways. 

Decentral CEO & founder and Ethereum co-founder Anthony Di Iorio said:

“Millions of people around the world trust Jaxx to secure their digital wealth and I believe that the next phase of Decentral project will attract an even wider demographic into our community. The platform unveiled on the United by Decentral cruise will unify and empower people, spread positivity and create immense impact. We live in a polarized world where things are often seen as binary and our digital lives reflect this fragmentation.

Decentral is addressing this fragmentation by providing a single, unified experience for the global community that agnostically supports all decentralized projects. Furthermore, by providing mainstream applications for decentralized platforms and putting data ownership rightfully back in the hands of individual users, Decentral will pave a much-needed middle ground where people are encouraged to find things in common — we’re humanizing blockchain.”

Decentral was founded in 2014 with the goal of becoming an innovation hub for disruptive and decentralized technologies. In just four years, the organization has created a community of hundreds of partner projects, most notably spawning leading blockchain Ethereum, and developing Jaxx, the foremost multi-platform, multi-currency cryptocurrency wallet, which actively engages more than 750,000 monthly users around the world. In the pursuit of unprecedented transparency and trustworthiness in the modern commercial ecosystem, Decentral intends for its new platform to empower the general public to take control of their digital lives by maintaining full control of their data.

“What we did with Ethereum is and was game-changing and at Decentral and Jaxx, we support all including Ethereum. It’s our goal to bring unity to other projects that have a lot of value to offer in many different sectors. The Decentral Project is our vision for the future. For the past four years, Decentral has been working toward a paradigm shift where users gain control of their digital assets and their digital lives. Our mission is to create the tools to make this possible. With our partners and friends aboard the United by Decentral cruise party, we’ll be sharing details of our new software, hardware and products for the new internet of value,” added Di Iorio.

The official Consensus afterparty will not only serve as a celebration of the company’s monumental progress thus far, but signify the start of a rapid growth phase. More than 1,000 friends and partners will be in attendance, showcasing the power of Decentral’s expansive community to come together and advocate for substantive social change.

United by Decentral will take place in the evening of May 16, 2018 aboard the Cornucopia Majesty, a four-story yacht, which is the largest of its kind on the East Coast of the United States. Entertainment will be provided by famed U.K. musician, composer and record producer Chicane, whose songs have topped charts across Europe and Australia.

While this is a private event, the festivities will be live streamed to the global community. For more information about the United by Decentral event, visit decentralproject.org.

Setting the record straight about Anthony Diiorio’s name

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding the correct spelling and pronunciation of my name. So I’d like to take the time to settle this once and for all. It’s Anthony Diiorio.

As in, Anthony Diiorio, co-founder of Ethereum. And Anthony Diiorio, Founder and CEO of Decentral and Jaxx. Anthony Diiorio, huge fan of Office Space and Half BakedBut if you do a quick search online, you’ll find my name spelled all kinds of different ways. Some are pretty creative. Most are inaccurate. 

The problem stems from sans-serif, which is the most prevalent type of font for text displayed on a computer or mobile screen. Interestingly, the term ‘sans serif’ is French for ‘without uncertainty.’ And yet, there are two letters that, when displayed in typical sans-serif mode, are identical: capital ‘I’ and lowercase ‘L.’ This is the main source of uncertainty around the proper spelling of my last name.

modern sans serif font letters metal
Sans serif does not have extending features (called ‘serifs’) at the end of strokes

You see, the original spelling is Di Iorio, which contains a capital ‘I,’ which is almost always mistaken for an ‘L.’

I’ve been at conferences where I’ve been introduced as ‘DiLorio.’ In fact, a lot of people know me as ‘DiLorio’ if they’ve only ever seen my name in print. It’s confusing and it’s not accurate.

So, for the record, it is spelled Anthony Diiorio.

While we’re at it, let’s discuss how it’s pronounced, which is actually the easy part.

Anthony Di Iorio
Anthony Diiorio wants to clear up the confusion surrounding his last name

It rhymes with Oreo. Yes, as in Oreo cookie. Think of it like ‘dee plus Oreo.’ Diiorio.

Getting this right is key. For myself, personally, as well as for Decentral, the company, and all of our other properties and partners. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Sincerely, Anthony Diiorio

“A person’s name is one of the very few things someone truly owns. Setting the record straight on Anthony’s name is important for the company’s sake, and also to properly anecdote the vital contributions he has already made to the blockchain and crypto industry, in addition to his vision to empower people to be in control of their lives.” – Jay Dingwall, Branding expert & CEO of Famous Folks

Decentral Hosts One-of-a-Kind Blockchain Party

February 15, 2018 was one for the books. On that night, Decentral hosted more than 500 people in our brand-new 15,000 square foot office space in the heart of downtown Toronto. The blockchain party was part recruitment initiative, and part milestone anniversary celebration (#DecentralParty). You can get a taste of what the event was like by watching this video of the #DecentralParty.There were robots buzzing around. There was a hologram. There were networking opportunities both for the people new to the blockchain space and those immersed in the industry.

“We had 100+ all-star devs (developers), founders of Toronto blockchain projects and around 400 blockchain enthusiasts joining us. I couldn’t be prouder!” says Maggie Xu, Business Development at Decentral and who has spent the last three weeks organizing this magical night.

The highlight of the evening for many was the live, hologram speech and Q&A with Ethereum founder and Decentral CEO Anthony Diiorio. The crispness and the real-time ARHT HumaGram (or human hologram) was a wonderful surprise for the audience.

Xu declared it a one-of-a-kind event. “The night felt like a sci-fi rock concert with robots, holograms, and a virtual reality display of the plans for our new 15,000 square foot office,” she says. “Shout out to Addison Cameron-Huff and Anthony Diiorio for the fantastic delivery of Decentral’s 2018 road map.”

Roy Carreiro was among the attendees. He’s a new client of the company’s, and after the event, a self-proclaimed fan. “I was truly impressed on many levels. I have been following this movement for a few years now, and have been looking into how I can participate in my own way to help it along,” he says.

Carreiro likens the experience to visiting a parallel universe, or the set of cult TV series Star Trek. “What I saw was amazing. I was like a kid walking into the Enterprise,” he says.

A who’s who of the blockchain world

Ethereum co-founder and Decentral CEO Anthony Diiorio describes the event as a success, and an important moment in the company’s history. “This was our first event in our new space. It conveys the growth of Decentral. This is now our fourth location. It was our largest event ever.”

In addition to some big names in the blockchain space, attendees included representatives from the Blockchain Research Institute, the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), BMO Capital Markets, Cormark Securities, CIBC World Markets, the National Angel Capital Organization (NACO), TD Securities. The media list included social news outlet Diply and Betakit.

More blockchain events to come

Diiorio says this is a taste of what’s to come during what promises to be a year of major announcements and changes for Decentral. “This was a look at our new space and a chance to share our vision for what the future is going to look like for Decentral, Canada’s coolest office space. It was showcase for other events to come.”

It was, in many ways, a calling card for people interested in the blockchain space. Particularly talented people looking for a company that is looking to grow with the best and the brightest. Xu says “If you’re a developer that wants to build some cool stuff, email [email protected] We are building a platform that’ll be the mother of all blockchain projects.”
