In an effort to bring cryptocurrencies to the public at large, virtual currency wallet Jaxx has teamed up with the Changelly crypto exchange.
On July 6, 2017, Changelly and Jaxx announced a partnership that has integrated the exchange's application programming interface (API) directly into Jaxx's interface. According to Changelly, many of the coins on the exchange are currently compatible with Jaxx or will be soon. The companies hope the partnership will encourage newcomers to engage in the market and "help bring cryptocurrencies to a more mainstream audience."
Changelly CEO Konstantin Gladych expressed an optimistic look forward. "Having Changelly onboard, Jaxx will definitely increase exchange volume and get additional revenue."
One feature of Jaxx allows users to access a built-in exchange to switch between over 13 currencies, enabling instant conversion within the app. Jaxx plans to add at least 30 additional coins in 2017, including Monero, NEM (XEM), Syscoin, Nav Coin, Decred, Lisk, and a plethora of ERC20 tokens. Ultimately, Jaxx is vying to become "the ultimate solution for blockchain asset management on the market."
Jaxx’s CEO, Anthony Di Iorio, spoke of new coin pairs and what impact the partnership will have on consumers. "We’re are very excited to be adding new token and coin pairs with Changelly to enable trading within Jaxx," he said. "By allowing people to keep money off exchanges, we give people control of their financial lives."
Aside from Jaxx, Changelly has formed partnerships with CoinMarketCap, Payza, CoinPayments, Freewallet, Official NEM/XEM wallet, ShakePay virtual card, and Uquid debit card. Changelly also maintains an instant exchange API, customizable payment widgets, and buttons for converting a broad range of coins outside the framework of the external site – features which avail themselves to other projects seeking to collaborate.
