Jaxx Adds the Edgeless Token to the Jaxx Ecosystem

30 Days of Jaxx, Day 10 – Jaxx Adds the Edgeless Token to the Jaxx Ecosystem

11th September 2017 – Toronto

Today Jaxx announces support for the Edgeless Casino token inside the Jaxx wallet.

Edgeless.io is the first Ethereum-based casino. Edgeless levers blockchain technology to offer players a completely transparent and 0% edge gambling experience. In the past online casinos have taken advantage of their house edge at the expense of participants. Now, on Edgeless, players are able to verify and view the Ethereum smart contract and thus be sure of the house edge: 0%. Ignas Mangevicius, Edgeless Co-Founder said, “Our casino solves the two greatest challenges to online casinos – price and transparency. We’ve built Edgeless to be fun & fair.”

Anthony Di Iorio, CEO of Jaxx, says “Traditional online casinos have the capacity to cheat their users without being spotted. Edgeless is using decentralized technology to eliminate that possibility and make a transparent gaming environment. We’re happy to support the token tied to their project, EDG, in Jaxx.”

About Edgeless:
The Edgeless team has been working since 2016 to create the first fully transparent casino in the world. The Edgeless ICO completed in March 2017 and the team has delivered their first milestone, the beta version of their Blackjack game. See www.edgeless.io for more information.

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: Balance between Security, Portability and Ease-of-Use

Nilang Vyas, CTO of Jaxx & Decentral here. I’d like to take this opportunity to describe and explain the major points of Jaxx security model and how this model provides a strong balance between securing users assets, and providing the best user experience that allows for easy pairing across any device without the need for servers and user accounts. 

  • Jaxx is a hot wallet suitable for small amounts (similar to your regular wallet in your pocket) that connects to the internet in order to push transactions and show balances.
  • As a hot wallet we believe we have found an appropriate balance between ease-of- use, portability, and security.
  • Jaxx IS NOT cold storage. For large amounts we recommend hardware wallets.
  • Jaxx master backup seed is created, encrypted, stored client-side and never sent to any servers.
  • Jaxx allows for easy pairing across all devices (thus seed can not be encrypted by a secondary pin or password when pairing as it wouldn’t be portable / pairable without account / servers)
  • We expect Users to maintain control of their devices, and we strongly encourage the use of on- device security (ie pin, fingerprint, retina, etc.) in order to secure your ENTIRE device.
  • Jaxx offers a the option of a 4 digit PIN to further secure your wallet. If activated this PIN will be required when sending, changing PIN, and when displaying the master seed.
  • Should someone get access to your device your lines of defence are a) on-board device features b) encrypted master seed c) Jaxx PIN

 

We are very comfortable with this security model for hotwallets. The fact is there will always be tradeoffs between user experience, portability and security and we believe we’ve struck a great balance. Since 2013 over 750,000 Jaxx and (our former company) Kryptokit wallets have been created. Never have funds been lost on any of our productions versions due to an issue on our end. We stand by that amazing record.

Please please please, if you do not feel comfortable with our security model do not use our products. We’re are creating for the masses a multi-platform, multi-coin interface for the blockchain ecosystem where users are in full control of their digital lives.

In the future users will be able to secure their Jaxx wallet with both Trezor, Ledger and our own hardware wallets. Until that time, please use Jaxx as a hot wallet for small amounts, and use hardware wallets for larger amounts.    

Happy to answer any questions when I’m back in the office after the weekend.

Cheers and have a great weekend!
Nilang Vyas, Chief Technology Officer
Jaxx & Decentral

 

The Fintech and Blockchain World Expo has been postponed

The following is an important announcement concerning the forthcoming Fintech and Blockchain World Expo.

 

After consulting with several of our major event partners, as well as conducting a thorough internal review, we have decided to postpone the Expo to a future date yet to be determined.

 

The principal reason for the postponement is the number of conflicting, similarly themed events taking place on and around the same time as the Expo. Some of our major event partners felt that postponing the Expo to a less crowded time period would result in a greatly improved experience for all Expo attendees, participants, and collaborators.

 

Planning and executing an event like the Expo requires an intense amount of work and internal resources, and one of the other reasons we’re postponing the event is to refocus some of our efforts on projects that have been left underserved in the run-up to the Expo. We think we can better serve the blockchain community by redoubling our efforts on these projects for the time being.

 

Existing ticketholders have been offered a refund.

 

For any questions or concerns regarding the Expo’s postponement, please contact Events Coordinator Matthew Brown at [email protected].

Notice: Decentral sites under maintenance for the next 48 hours, possible downtime

 

We’re going to be performing some maintenance on Decentral’s websites over the next 24-48 hours, performing some amalgamation and updating our DDoS protection configuration. This may result in some downtime over this period for some or all of our sites and web services:

 

decentral.ca
jaxx.io
ethereumwallet.com
rushwallet.com
decentral.tv

 

This will not affect the functionality of Jaxx whatsoever. We apologize for any inconvenience and should have normal service restored before very long. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.

Why Ashton Kutcher & Akon are Tuning into Blockchain Technology

ashton akon blockchain technology

For many, especially individuals content with the status quo, it is unfathomable to predict the progress of future technology. For others, the idea of using decentralized strategies to further our technological autonomy has fueled ambition to create new and disruptive technologies.
 
For example, the blockchain is a technology that allows databases to be shared across a network of computers. Information on the blockchain exists on all computers (or nodes) on the network, and each block represents an up-to-date record of whatever information is being stored. The first and best-known application of the blockchain to date is the digital currency Bitcoin. However, the technology has many other potential uses, some that could have the capacity to reframe our social relations and power dynamics. The blockchain’s ability to facilitate transparency and disintermediate trust suggests blockchain adoption will bring on a paradigm shift in our culture.
 
So what do innovations like these mean to technophobes or people not particularly well-versed in technology? Disruptive technologies like the blockchain could mean that individuals no longer have to rely on a centralized authority to control social, economic, and even political transactions. This realization has gained the attention of the following celebrities who have been able to help close the gap between tech fanatics and mainstream populations:
 

1) Ashton Kutcher

The actor, producer, and now investor, has had his fair share of success acting in films such as No Strings Attached and The Butterfly Effect, along with TV roles in Two and a Half Men and Netflix original The Ranch. Kutcher, who co-founded his own venture capital firm in 2010, A-Grade Investments, has been a longtime fan of blockchain technology and Bitcoin. In a 2013 video, Kutcher spoke at TechCrunch Disrupt NY about the power of decentralized technology:
 

“…what can decentralized technology do? Imagine if we could decentralize [the] issue of security… the notion that we could civically monitor each other in an anonymous way actually keeps the anonymity of the Internet, we don’t have to worry about Big Brother and that same infrastructure that built out bitcoin could be used in the security industry for mass good.”

 


 
Kutcher also sees the political value of blockchains — especially with regards to proposals by two of the current US Presidential candidates for remittance policies that would obstruct migrant workers’ abilities to send money to their home lands.


 
Kutcher’s advocacy as a leader in disruptive technology could encourage a growing number of people to embrace blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. It’s what celebrities do best — create trends and start conversations on these topics.
 

2) Akon

Recording artist and producer, Akon, has been a vocal supporter of blockchain technologies and cryptocurrency. When he is not making hits, he is busy doing philanthropic work. Most recently, he helped provide electricity to over 600 million individuals across Africa. Through his cryptocurrency advocacy, Akon has been a proactive voice for reclaiming personal autonomy through technology.
 
From promoting Bitcoin and digital currencies in his home country of Senegal, as well as across West Africa, Akon is hopeful for the future of charities and other initiatives. As he explains:
 

“Digital currency is going to be the future, and as you can see I can’t remember the last time I carried a wad of dollars in my pocket…there’s all these new innovative ideas, but one in particular, by the name of bitcoin… [it’s] going to change the world from a money transactional standpoint not just for Africa, but for everywhere.”

 
The message is clear: financial systems, as we know them, are changing. Blockchain technology has the potential to streamline access to financial services, override corporate influence and open up new markets wherever wealth disparity exists. This is not to say that this technology will immediately or permanently solve global economic inequality, but it throws a wrench into the system, empowering those who wouldn’t have had the chance to be prosperous. Celebrities like Akon are helping to make this happen.
 

3) Imogen Heap

As the only female artist to have won a Grammy award for engineering, the “Hide and Seek” singer has always been a leader in tech innovation in the music industry. For example, Heap invented and designed musical gloves to manipulate sounds with hand gestures that can be used to produce music.
 
Now, Heap has embraced Ethereum (co-founded by Decentral’s CEO Anthony Di Iorio), a decentralized blockchain platform that can execute peer-to-peer “smart” contracts. By working with coders to develop a publishing method that is provably transparent, Ethereum can automatically distribute payment for sales of all copyrighted content, essentially eliminating the need for a middleperson or centralized authority. Her Dapp (decentralized app), Mycelia by Heap, will allow individual components of songs (such as a beat or a hook) to be licensed and monetized, with the owner of the content losing less (or none) of their revenue to corporate rentiers.
 
This concept isn’t restricted to music. Since the digital age, creative industries such as books, films, and visual art have experienced a loss of control over their content. When physical properties get digitized, they can be reproduced and shared by a global audience without creators receiving revenues from it. With the blockchain, respect for artistic property is being reclaimed and Imogen Heap wants to be the leader of the revolution. Her single “Tiny Human,” which is only available for purchase with ether (the fuel that powers the Ethereum network), is solidifying Heap as a foremost innovator of music distribution using blockchain technology.
 

4) Richard Branson

Entrepreneur and billionaire Richard Branson has also been an avid promoter of Bitcoin and blockchain applications. In addition to acting as an advocate for cryptocurrencies and disruptive technologies, he has invested in cryptocurrency companies (e.g. BitPay), hosted an exclusive digital currency conference on his own private island, and onramped Bitcoin as an accepted form of payment for his space travel initiative, Virgin Galactic. In a discussion with Argentinian President, Mauricio Macri, Branson outlines how Bitcoin can offer individuals:
 

“Greater levels of control, freedom and scrutiny over what happens with our money, Bitcoin addresses these concerns and that is why so many people believe it represents the future. While many of us are excited about the possibilities Bitcoin has to offer, I’m not sure any of us would argue that it comes without problems.”

 
An extremely powerful and a high-profile celebrity, Branson can use his fame to spark overdue and meaningful conversations with decision-makers about cryptocurrencies and disruptive technology and, in turn, explore applicable use-cases.

5) Mike Tyson

Boxing bad boy Mike Tyson has been an avid participant in the Bitcoin revolution. Working in partnership with Bitcoin Direct, Tyson recently unveiled two Bitcoin-related initiatives: Mike Tyson Bitcoin, a Bitcoin ATM, and a digital wallet, the Mike Tyson Digital Wallet. Underlying both products is Tyson’s interest in increasing awareness about Bitcoin and encouraging non-specialists to use the cryptocurrency. As a celebrity, Tyson is interested in using his celebrity status to promote discussions about Bitcoin and its potential to incite positive change:
 

“People don’t really understand a currency based on numerical equations. I personally still don’t … but I’m grateful to be a part of the revolution and hoping that my participation in this space will lead to more conversations and help increase knowledge and awareness.”

 

 
While Tyson’s initiatives are still in their relative infancy, such endeavours offer insights into Bitcoin and blockchain technology test-cases. By investing in products aimed at non-specialists, celebrities like Tyson make accessible what may otherwise come across as exclusive or obscure technologies.
 
Disruptive and decentralized technologies are the future and we have just begun the journey. As more and more familiar faces get on board with blockchain technology, the gap between the tech industry and mainstream culture should definitely begin to narrow. Can you imagine our current society without the influence of the Internet? Neither can we. It’s everywhere. The question is, will blockchain technology be the next Internet, and what will its capabilities and influence be? All we know is that the future is here and it’s knocking on our doors. Will you let it in?
