"As a company that operates in the Monero space, we are happy to provide them with as much support as possible, and look forward to a successful release."

Jaxx will soon release its "Orange Paper" (a consumer-friendly version of a white paper) and a company roadmap outlining its long-term vision to provide software and hardware that supports the entire blockchain ecosystem and takes decentralized technologies mainstream.
