ShapeShift Makes Crypto Available to All with New Wallet Support
ShapeShift, one of the world’s leading self-custody crypto trading platforms, announced today support for Portis, the self-custodian multi-blockchain wallet. Users are now able to create a web-based wallet in the ShapeShift crypto trading platform in seconds, in addition to its current hardware wallet support.
“ShapeShift is committed to a borderless, decentralized financial future, and integrating this new wallet means that we can make our vision more accessible,” said ShapeShift Founder and CEO, Erik Voorhees. “With Portis, we can offer ShapeShift without hardware for the first time, providing the best way to easily hold, trade and track your
crypto, all without giving up your control to a third party.”
With the new integration, users can set up a wallet that integrates directly with ShapeShift’s crypto
trading platform using only an email and password. Users gain access to sophisticated end-to-end encryption architecture, which allows them to maintain complete control over their private crypto keys. Users can hold many digital assets including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and dozens of others.
"We're thrilled about this integration," said Portis Co-Founder and CEO Tom Teman. "ShapeShift was very early to recognize the need for a smooth user experience in order to make crypto accessible to the masses. ShapeShift's vision matches ours perfectly and we have exciting plans that will let us make the jump to the next level of mainstream user adoption."
Users can experience the new wallet and integration at ShapeShift.com. The crypto trading platform now utilizes both web-based and hardware wallets including KeepKey and Trezor.
