ShapeShift Releases iPhone App for Trading Major Altcoins “Instantly”
ShapeShift.io has just made available an iPhone iOS app for its “instant” cryptocurrency exchange platform.
Users can now trade Bitcoin with Ripple, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Monero, Counterparty, Dash and other altcoins rapidly with their iPhone.
ShapeShift.io Founder and CEO Erik Voorhees, commented:
Since inception, ShapeShift has changed what is expected of altcoin exchanges. Having a presence on mobile is a crucial step in our roadmap for delivering the most frictionless experience possible while working at the speed of digital currency.
Most exchanges hold customer funds and extract personal information, which is an archaic and insecure model. Mt. Gox was a teachable moment for everyone in the Bitcoin community and ShapeShift has innovated these problems out of the picture. We are both faster and more secure. This is real consumer protection – no funds or sensitive information is stored on our servers nor on the user’s phone in case it is damaged, destroyed or stolen. Digital currency has brought to humanity a more secure infrastructure, and so we build in that spirit.
ShapeShift recently saw integrations with some other major digital currency companies Purse.io and Vaultoro, which enable users to buy goods on Amazon or trade cryptocurrency for gold bullion, respectively.
ShapeShift’s goal is the “fastest, safest, and most convenient way” to trade over a dozen digital assets with each other.
