Instant cryptocurrency exchange service ShapeShift.io has completed an API integration with Coinomi, a free, open-source wallet for Bitcoin and multiple crypto-currencies, available as an Android application.
The ShapeShift API integration allows Coinomi wallet users to convert between each supported altcoin within the wallet without the user having to leave the Android application.
The Coinomi wallet currently supports Dogecoin, Litecoin and Bitcoin, as well as other major cryptocurrencies. Only available as an Android app, Coinomi plans to release their iOS app version in the next few months.
Coinomi Founder & CEO George Kimionis commented:
We are very excited about this API integration as for the first time users holding more than one coin in their wallet will be able to seamlessly convert from one coin to another without having to leave their wallet app but also to spend their altcoins where only bitcoin payments are accepted without having to manually convert their coins.
Developed to be primarily used as an API, ShapeShift’s integration with Coinomi’s wallet is just one of many the instant altcoin exchange hopes to support.
ShapeShift COO, Jon, noted:
From the start Coinomi has always been the most used mobile wallet in our office because of its multi-coin capability and so we are very excited for this partnership,” said . “Converting cryptocurrencies within the app itself has been a magical experience.
