Decentral introduced a beta version of the multi-currency wallet Jaxx Liberty.

From the usual for many popular multi-currency wallet Jaxx Liberty features a number of new features. In particular, the 'Portfolio' module is integrated into it, allowing to monitor the dynamics of user-defined crypto-currencies for a certain period of time.

There's also a news module and a similar to the Coinmarketcap rating of the cryptocurrency market capitalization.

It is also noteworthy that the Windows wallet distribution "weighs" more than 300 MB.

Test versions of Jaxx Liberty for Android and iOS OC are available on the corresponding pages of the Play Store and the App Store. Desktop beta versions of the new wallet for Windows and Mac are also available. The Linux version and the Chrome browser extension will appear between 9 and 31 July.

According to the developers, the current version is still a little "raw" and in the near future the functionality of the wallet will be further developed and enriched with new opportunities.

We recommend that users not rely solely on the beta version of Jaxx Liberty. It is very similar to the current Jaxx, but we suggest a cautious approach towards it. Treat it the way you would treat the physical wallet you have in your pocket or purse that you carry around with you every day: don’t use the beta for large sums you’re unwilling to lose.

Final release is expected in July. 

Ex S&P President to Invest in iComply Startup

The startup is aimed at developing tools and services to meet the regulative standards for blockchain start-ups

Startup iComply, working in the field of regulatory technologies and compliance with standards, has just completed the initial round of financing, which was headed by former Standard & Poor CEO Deven Sharma, CoinDesk reports.

IComply, aimed at developing tools and services to meet the regulative standards for blockchain start-ups (especially for those that conduct ICO), said on Monday that it attracted a seven-figure sum during this invest-round, but did not say the exact figure. The round was also attended by DMG Blockchain and Block X Capital.

In addition, iComply reported that it was joined by former employee of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Jeff Bandman, former Managing Director of NASDAQ and the Financial Services Industry Regulation Service (FINRA) Manny Alikandro, MIT Connection Science program member, Praveen Mandal and Prosecutor Thomas Linder.

According to Sharma, he decided to invest in the startup iComply, because the project "is focused on services for ICOs related to risks and compliance with standards." Compliance with the standards, he said, will ensure the transparency of ICO issuers and thereby help to ease the concerns of regulators.

Sharma also believes that iComply can contribute to the spread of crypto technologies, helping the entry of traditional financial services into this industry.

My interest is to see iComply evolve into a benchmark that investors can use to assess credibility of issuers, sustainability of underlying services and the price of ICOs. iComply's patent-pending software enables both security and utility tokens to monitor and document compliance, governance and risk procedures, before a public blockchain executes an immutable trade, providing trust, integrity and transparency for our clients. There have been a few ICOs that had a fundamentally robust offering that I understood and did interest me [but I] missed the opportunity. Others that have transparency from a service like iComply, I would [invest in].

It is the ideas of transparency and trust, according to Sharma, that sparked his interest in order to start working with the blockbuster.
