Jaxx community overwhelmingly requested integration with 7th most valuable cryptocurrency.
Multi-platform software wallet Jaxx has completed an integration with Dash, which is the seventh most valuable digital currency.
Dash becomes the fourth cryptocurrency supported by Jaxx, which is now available on nine platforms including Windows, Mac, and Linux desktops, Apple and Android mobile devices and tablets, as well as Google Chrome and Firefox browser extensions.
On every platform, Jaxx users will now be able to transmit, buy, and sell Dash, as well as exchange it for other crypto currencies using a frictionless in-wallet conversion, said a statement.
CEO of Jaxx Anthony Di Iorio said: "A month ago, we asked our community what cryptocurrency they wanted integrated next and the clear winner was Dash. We received an overwhelming amount of responses, so we joined with their development team to effect the integration. This has been an exciting project for both organisations."
Dash has continued to improve access and features for its user base during a recent period of high demand, said the statement.
Dash VP of Business Development Daniel Diaz said: "Jaxx has positioned itself as a sleek, easy-to-use multi-platform wallet and is a great fit for our payment network. The process of integrating was also very smooth – they have a great staff and collaborated extremely well with our team. The decision to work together was reinforced by the good experience we had during the implementation and we expect to continue strengthening our relationship long into the future."
Dash is renowned for its low fees, advanced encryption, instant transactions, and optional payment privacy technology. Dash currently has a market cap of $80m, making it the seventh most valued cryptocurrency in the world. The Dash blockchain is governed by a self-funded, decentralised organization comprised of over 4,000 master nodes.
Diaz added: "Users will benefit because this allows them to keep Bitcoin, Dash and other currencies in the same wallet depending on their needs. It will also allow them to convert from one currency to the other and have their coins back in their wallet without leaving them on exchanges."
Di Iorio added: "Our goal is to unify the blockchain experience and unite the crypto communities. I think we are at a time where we all believe in the technology, but we need a more collaborative frame of mind to fully build things out.
"We want to do what the browser did for the internet. By providing a simple-to-use wallet with a common user interface and a growing list of supported platforms, we can allow almost endless choice for consumers. They can finally control their own digital assets without ever relying on a third party."
Jaxx's integration of Dash has completed testing and verification, and becomes available for download today.
