ShapeShift.io is one of the best digital currency exchanges in the ecosystem. Users can exchange their coins in seconds, without having to sign up for an account. ShapeShift’s mission is to be the fastest, safest, and most convenient way to trade digital assets.
This Monday, ShapeShift.io announced the integration of the Ethereum digital asset, Ether onto its trading platform. Ethereum is a network for powering decentralized application in need of a secure transaction ledger that can be used to securely execute a wide variety of services including: voting systems, domain name registries, financial exchanges, crowdfunding platforms and many more. Ethereum, which has been in development since 2013, shattered crowd funding records last year when it raised over $18 million. By including Ethereum’s digital token on ShapeShift, software developers and users can immediately exchange Ether and other crypto assets to bring liquidity to the ecosystem.
Erik Voorhees, ShapeShift’s CEO commented:
“Ethereum is a wild project and will likely change software architecture in the same manner that Bitcoin is changing financial architecture. The two projects are beautiful compliments to each other.”
The Ethereum platform is designed to enable advanced software development upon a decentralized architecture. Where Bitcoin was designed specifically as money, Ethereum attempts to apply true peer-to-peer principles to scripts and applications themselves. Augur, the world’s first decentralized prediction market, is one of the first high-profile projects built upon Ethereum.
George Hallam, the Business & Partnership Director at Ethereum comments:
“On a personal note, I’m very appreciative of the hard work that the ShapeShift development team has put into making the Ether listing a reality.”
The exchange growth is unstoppable making it the leading exchange in the ecosystem. Lately, the exchange has been collecting a lot of partnerships and new coins are constantly being added. “Ether” is now available for instant exchange and customers anywhere in the world can easily buy and sell Ether along with dozens of other cryptocurrencies through one of the most rated exchanges in the ecosystem.
