Users will now be able to instantly trade the most popular digital assets such as Bitcoin, Ripple, Litecoin, Dash, Dogecoin, BitShares, NXT, and Counterparty at much better rates.

To take advantage of the superior rates, the user only needs to specify how much of the receiving asset he or she wishes to receive. The new rate is then calculated automatically and shown to the user.

Erik Voorhees, ShapeShift Founder and CEO commented:

“Our prior system wasn’t able to take into consideration the size of the user’s trade, so the price they received had a safety buffer that led to less competitive rates. Now, if the user opts to tell ShapeShift how much digital currency will be traded, a significantly better exchange rate will be provided.”

ShapeShift’s trading platform tried to introduce a new business model and re-imagined how a cryptocurrency exchange should work, forgoing traditional user accounts and deposit delays. This makes ShapeShift not only far faster for trading, but also greatly improves consumer protection, as funds are not at risk and the exchange itself is much less vulnerable to hackers.

The exchange has been unstoppable since the beginning of the current year and has been introducing new changes and adding new pairs at a constant rate. By offering users a completely free and new way of dealing their cryptocurrencies the exchange has been growing its user’s number at an enormous rate.

The platform already supports over 750 active trading pairs, making the exchange that counts more Trading Pairs than any other digital currency exchange in the industry.
