Ethos and ShapeShift

Ethos, a leading multi-cryptocurrency wallet and enterprise blockchain solutions provider, has announced an integration with ShapeShift.io, a digital marketplace for Bitcoin and other blockchain tokens. This integration will mean that Ethos users and enterprise customers will soon have access to the liquidity and exchange services for dozens of cryptocurrencies and tokens.

Ethos is aiming to create a financial ecosystem that is, in their own words, “open, safe and fair for everyone” by harnessing the power and autonomy that cryptocurrencies provide. The Ethos Universal Wallet currently gives users the power to store, track, send and receive over 100+ tokens.

The integration with ShapeShift enables users to securely exchange and swap coins without any intermediaries. Users will be able to initiate trades directly from their wallet with settlement and order handling abstracted and rapidly executed for the user.

“Ethos provides the infrastructure for a more robust digital economy that is truly easy to use and accessible to the average person,” says Ethos Founder & CEO Shingo Lavine. “We want to partner with leading companies in the space to provide the best possible service while preserving the ideals and allure that cryptocurrencies hold.”

Beyond the consumer wallet service, Ethos plans to integrate ShapeShift as an offering in its Bedrock product and services. Bedrock is a sophisticated, high-performance API that makes blockchain protocols as accessible as internet protocols for businesses and institutions.

As Ethos puts it, “Ethos and Shapeshift are taking a leap forward to offer exchange services and move towards building regulated, enterprise-ready service offerings that can service users and institutions globally.”
