Shapeshift Launches New Trading Engine and Self-Custody Solution

Launched in 2014, the Shapeshift platform has provided cryptocurrency users with the ability to quickly swap a variety of digital assets in a secure environment. Not long after the company started, Shapeshift began to offer hundreds of trading pairs. This week the firm has launched its new platform which can be found at the domain Shapeshift.com. After leaving private beta testing period on Monday, the web-based crypto platform has a whole new look with a dashboard that shows current assets and a tab that accesses the vast amount of trading pairs. Moreover, the biggest advancement for the new Shapeshift is the end-to-end solution for storing, sending, receiving, trading and tracking the company’s wide variety of digital coins.

Shapeshift allows people to trade some of the most popular cryptocurrencies like bitcoin cash (BCH) which recently became the second most valuable blockchain by transaction volume, according to a recent research analysis conducted by Ryan Research. You can also swap other well known digital assets like litecoin (LTC) and ethereum (ETH), alongside a wide selection of lesser-known coins and ERC20 tokens. The newly integrated digital management suite for Shapeshift provides you with the ability to merge with the trading platform using either a Keepkey or Trezor hardware wallet device. According to the team, there will be more methods of key storage coming in the future. The new Shapeshift platform seeks to be an easy to use solution that competes against third-party solutions. Moreover, the new app is tethered to real-time market-data via the Coincap API for accurate, up-to-date pricing and historical data.

Over 50 digital assets are held on the trading engine including popular digital assets like bitcoin cash (BCH). Shapeshift’s platform is noncustodial and connected with real-time market data via Coincap.io.

During the launch announcement, the company explained that rather than targeting institutional custody solutions Shapeshift aimed for an international retail audience. Giving traditional everyday crypto users an integrated digital management suite and the ability to swap coins in a noncustodial fashion has been Shapeshift’s main driver. Since the inception of cryptocurrencies, centralized trading platforms have been plagued with hacks and exit scams. Shapeshift’s latest product is focused on curbing this problem by giving traders the ability to trade coins in a far safer manner while also storing them in one place.

“For too long the cryptocurrency space has been fractured, with price tracking, trading and holding taking place on dozens of separate apps and sites — With the new Shapeshift, it’s all finally under one roof,” said Michael Perklin, Shapeshift’s chief information security officer.

An Entire System Built Without Custodial Risk

Shapeshift founder and CEO Erik Voorhees said the new platform has been in the works for quite some time. “For over a year we’ve been preparing the next evolution of Shapeshift, a holistic crypto-platform for hodling, buying, selling, trading, tracking, and managing digital assets across multiple blockchains, all without custody.” Voorhees continued by adding:

The new Shapeshift is arguably the world’s first non-centralized multi-chain digital asset platform — It becomes the basis of self-sovereign finance and we’re immensely proud to bring this to market.

Existing users can check out the new Shapeshift today and anyone can register to start trading over 50 digital assets held on the exchange. Individuals should note that a know-your-customer (KYC) verification is required to use the platform’s trading engine.

Shapeshift users must verify their identity in order to swap coins using the trading platform.

Voorhees explained that the new Shapeshift is built “on years of technology and learning, to deliver an end-to-end non-custodial digital asset experience.” Before the platform opened to the general public Vorhees revealed that roughly 20,000 users tested the platform during the beta trial period.

Stocks jump, on track for best week since late NovemberThis week’s rally has recouped most of May’s losses, when President Donald Trump’s tariff threats escalated trade wars with China and Mexico. Stocks and bonds both rose Friday after a report showed hiring was weaker than expected in May. The report appeared to increase the odds the Federal Reserve will have to cut interest rates in the coming months.

India Claims It Can Track China's New J-20 Stealth Fighter

May 17, 2019 |

India Claims It Can Track China's New J-20 Stealth FighterThe Indian Air Force has boasted its Su-30 Flankers have tracked J-20s on radar, but as stealth fighters often employ emitters called “Luneburg Lens” to enlarge their RCS on routine flights, and thus conceal their true capabilities, it’s difficult to infer much from this either.In January 2011, the maiden flight of a large, dagger-like grey jet announced that China had developed its first stealth aircraft—the Chengdu J-20 “Mighty Dragon.” Six years later, after several substantial revisions, J-20s entered operational service with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force.(This first appeared several months ago.)As radar-guided missiles from fighters and ground-based launchers threaten aircraft from dozens, or even hundreds of miles away, stealth capabilities are increasingly perceived as necessary for keeping fighter pilots alive on the modern battlefield.But just how good is the J-20? And what is its intended role? After all, America’s first stealth fighter, the F-117 Nighthawk, was not even really a fighter and lacked any air-to-air capability whatsoever.
