ShapeShift Adds NEO Token to Exchange
Neo’s token now available for instant exchange with 70+ blockchain assets
SWITZERLAND, January 4, 2018 – ShapeShift.io has integrated NEO (NEO), a tradable blockchain asset based on smart contract technology. Customers anywhere in the world can now buy or sell NEO instantly along with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and dozens of additional blockchain assets. There is no signup process nor account required to use ShapeShift.
China-based NEO, formally known as Antshares, is a distributed network based on digital assets, digital identity, and smart contract technology. NEO seeks to digitize assets and create a stronger connection between the traditional and digital economies.
“The NEO token is an exciting addition to ShapeShift’s platform,” said ShapeShift Founder and CEO Erik Voorhees. “NEO has emerged as a leader in China’s blockchain community and a strong player in the realization of the smart economy. We’re happy this partnership has come to fruition.”
NEO has built a blockchain that uses delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance for security instead of Proof of Work or Proof of Stake. This validation method is a more efficient way of reaching consensus. Through its multi-faceted approach to blockchain technology, NEO looks to usher in the “Smart Economy.” As one of the largest crypto-to-crypto exchanges, ShapeShift’s inclusion of NEO expands NEO users ability to seamlessly interact with many of the leading cryptocurrency assets.
Companies and individuals can immediately utilize the ShapeShift website or API to convert between NEO and leading blockchain assets such as Bitcoin, with no account or sign up needed.
ShapeShift is the fastest and safest digital asset exchange in the world. From start to finish, users can exchange blockchain tokens in seconds, with no account required. The firm pioneered the concept of “Consumer Protection by Design,” enabling web and API-based trading without counterparty risk. See more at: shapeshift.io
