ATTENTION – JAXX WALLET SECURITY FLAW

Jaxx wallet (at the time of writing) are working to fix their security vulnerability. While this remains unresolved, your currencies could be at risk. WE’D RECOMMEND TO TRANSFER FUNDS OUT OF JAXX WALLET UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE & NEVER KEEP ANY SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS IN A MOBILE or “HOT WALLET” SUCH AS JAXX.

We strongly recommend using a Hardware wallet (Ledger Nano S is our favorite) to store any substantial amounts of crypto.

Jaxx is an Ether, Ether Classic, Dash, DAO, Litecoin, REP, and Bitcoin wallet that is in early beta. It is developed by Kryptokit.

Wallet Philosophy:

  1. They never access or hold onto user funds.
  2. They offer a client-side security model, with private keys hosted locally and never sent to any servers.
  3. They are design-oriented, offering simple, attractive user interfaces and experiences
  4. They use standards that ensure that should the wallet ever go down or cease to exist, your keys can be imported into another service.
  5. They remove friction points whenever possible
  6. They never require users to input any personal information including email addresses

With a focus on unifying the look and feel across devices and focusing on customer service, security, design, and user experience, their goal is to make the Jaxx Bitcoin and Ethereum wallet default wallet of choice for the masses.
