Using Jaxx for the first time ...

Hi,

I just exchanged some btc for dash(via shapeshift) to the public dash address('your current dash address') generated in Jaxx.

I can see it confirmed on the dash blockchain, so I take it it left shapeshift successfully, but my Jaxx wallet still says 0.00 beneath the address. I tried clicking the refresh icon but that made no difference.

I'm a little worried about losing the private key.... because there's no indication one was actually generated and saved. I'm a bit scared to click something in case it discards the key-pair, thinking I didn't use it.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Ok... (don't all shout at once),

Problem solved :)

I was using - unbeknownst to me - an outdated version of the wallet. i.e. 1.1.7. (if I'm not mistaken I think that was by following the dash.org/{wallets} link to jaxx.)

The support guy said use a different version on a different platform and pair the words .... bingo.

Interesting...
1.1.7 is the latest version listed on jaxx.io ...
Which version/OS you are using as a "different" one?

Well, that's what I thought. But it seems the chrome extension is installed as v 1.2. and it appears to have worked. Have not sent any money from it yet but it at least shows my balance.

Have you learned how to find your Jaxx private keys?

I use jaxx too. I saw the balance was right but the transaction listed is missing 1 transaction so I decided to do cache reset. The bitcoin wallet is fine but dash keep initializing wallet and nothing else. Now I could not use the dash that I have in jaxx because I can't send. Anyone can help ?
