I tried it several 10times and almost everytime I got Transaction Failed. But every 10-15 try, there was no status about transaction (OK or not OK). I finally got almost all of my ETC out of this "wallet" - about 200 tries to send with several Jaxx cache resets. It was possible to send a piece of my budged after every reset, but not all of my ETCs.  Undecided
I can forget this software after flushing almost all coins out.  Smiley

JAXX wallet is so screwed up! Transactions don't show (when they actually manage to go through) and the wallet is not secure.  Even if you use the pin it's nothing more than a pseudo-secure hash that can be hacked in a few seconds, even when the wallet is not open.

I've lost several hundreds of dollars value in transactions.  What I believe happened is that I also installed JAXX on my Android phone, and because I use a wifi connection at home when not on the network, it became the back door to my wallet. I shapeshifted about $500 worth of eth which took 4 days to simply be returned to me, and a few minutes later was shifted OUT to an unknown address.

They do not use a legit encryption for protection.  Use it at your own risk, expect the worst, you'll be rewarded with just that.  A months worth of mining down the tubes.

Do yourselves a favor and use Exodus, myethwallet, and electrum.  Don't use this POS wallet. At this point I wouldn't doubt the makers of this thing are scamming people.  It has simply become too wonky to be legit.

Does Jaxx wallet require Ethereum in order to make transaction with other altcoins? I am attempting to send 1st (firstblood coin) out of the wallet and it keeps failing.

I'm adding a warning to users who use this wallet as someone I know has sent coins through this wallet to have one transaction send coins while the other transaction sends coins to an address they do not control which are then promptly spent and taken.
That or Jaxx doesn't know how to read change addresses on outputs and loses the coins which honestly looking at the code and reviews makes sense ... so ya Do not use.

No issues whatsoever, syncs quickly, only they need to add other ERC20 tokens Quickly to gain more USERS and also another layer of security like 2fa..!!! AGAIN TO GAIN MORE USERS..!!

ATM lookin gor transfers from 2 days... then I realize I have a dozen of adresses for Doge that are out of my control, they just change. Must recover some... good is that there are private keys, so there is a chance.

BTW: Has anybody found a way to restore the old adresses (that keep getting switched) - in Jaxx or other app?

I'll add my warning to the mix.

Thankfully I haven't lost any coins, but spent a while wondering why my ETH wouldn't send ('transaction failed'). Watched videos on youtube, no solutions worked, so had to end up exporting private keys to My Ether Wallet, which is not a good way of doing things.

My ETH balance is also wrong - I've emptied all of the addresses, and it still lists 4 ETH that don't exist, despite  deleting cash & restoring.

Basically, have a play, but don't trust this wallet with any large amounts.

If it can't even send ETH or display correct balances, it should probably be avoided!

Shame, as it seems like it has potential.

This is the exact reason to download a desktop wallet and store them there.
Bitcoin Core is the one to use and nothing else.
Online wallets are for exchanges only.
Jaxxx has to many to choose from evena  browser wallet which I can see it being a disaster and to have your coins stolen quite easily. As I assume this is what has happened to your coins you claim the program has done in losing them.
I personally use electrum wallet.
It gives me the feacher of 2fa verification before every withdraw.
But you are mentioning the core wallet here.
Could you please let us know how much secure the core wallet is?
Or how can we secure the core wallet?
Its also a bulky installation isn't it?

Core is very, very secure.

You can run it with a startup option set so it does not require a huge database.

I recommend it highly.

Maybe this will help someone:

after some mails to Jaxx their advice was to go to Settings and reset Jaxx cache. So I did and beside some 55 Dogecoin there were also another 160 from previous transfers that I didn't miss until then.

So reset to find out the real crypto assets that you own on multiple Jaxx accounts.

Was using JAXX. Never had issues. Now this makes me doubt it.
