Jaxx is a Multi-Currency wallet which allows you to manage your crypto on Mobile and Desktop.
You get a 12-word seed key at the time of signing up with the wallet: As you own the private keys, this wallet is very safe to store Zcash.
You can store many other cryptocurrencies along with Zcash.
Jaxx is super user friendly.
It is fully open source.
Jaxx never holds or has access to your funds – they remain securely in your control on their respective blockchains.
If you back-up your Masterseed you will be easily able to recover your wallets if you lose access to the device they were on.
Use your Masterseed to view your wallet on iOS, Android, Chrome Extension, Windows, Mac and Linux desktops.
The Jaxx Blockchain Interface give you ability to trade your Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Dash, Zcash and a variety of other cryptocurrencies simply, quickly, and securely with as few as two touches.
Converting from one asset to another is as easy as that in Jaxx.
It should not be used for large amounts of Zcash, but is a great option for day-to-day use or accepting payments on the go.
Jaxx supports all eight of the most popular platforms.
Be sure to perform regular Backups of your wallet.
It has all the typical features that might be expected from a desktop cryptocurrency wallet:
List of transactions
Status of blockchain synchronization
Management of ZCash addresses (including Z addresses)
Known issues and limitations:
Wallet versions 0.58 and below, when running on systems with (typically non-western) locales that redefine the decimal point in the OS locale settings, have problems with updating the GUI wallet state. A workaround is to change the locale settings to have dot as decimal separator.
Wallet encryption has been temporarily disabled in ZCash due to stability problems. A corresponding issue#1552 has been opened by the ZCash developers. Correspondingly wallet encryption has been temporarily disabled in the ZCash Desktop GUI Wallet.
The GUI wallet does not work correctly if zcashd is started with a custom data directory, like: zcashd -datadir=/home/data/whatever This will be fixed in later versions.
GUI data tables (transactions/addresses etc.) allow copying of data via double click but also allow editing. The latter needs to be disabled.
The list of transactions does not show all outgoing ones (specifically outgoing Z address transactions). A corresponding issue #1438 has been opened for the ZCash developers.
The CPU percentage shown to be taken by zcashd on Linux is the average for the entire lifetime of the process. This is not very useful. This will be improved in future versions.
