Jaxx has also recently partnered up with Shapeshift.io, the decentralized cryptocurrency conversion service and now supports trade between the supported coins right in the wallet.

Only Basic Features For Now

It is important to note that users will not yet be able to send DASH through its Instant Transactions feature, nor take advantage of Darksend, the native anonymization technology that brought DASH to fame.

In a recent interview with Amanda B. Johnson’s DASH Detailed, Jaxx CEO Anthony Di
said that for specific features to be developed on coins that Jaxx supports, they would need help and/or funds from the coins’ communities since their strategy is one of basic support rather than specialization for any specific one.

However, Di Iorio did tell Bitcoin.com that:

Only basic wallet features of Dash will be supported at this time, but [are] planned for the future.

Other Wallets Follow

Among the highlights, Rassah confirmed the partnership between the two teams as DASH developers are helping Mycelium implement the Modular BitcoinJ code base presumably as part of the deal to integrate DASH into the highly adopted Bitcoin wallet. He added:

Dash and Mycelium have the same focus and culture, those being the highest possible level of user privacy and security, so we are very excited to be working with them.

Since word about its integration on the both popular Bitcoin wallets begun to spread, the price has risen impressively by almost two dollars since Mycelium’s post on Reddit.
