Welcome to the latest issue of our monthly newsletter. Learn about what we got up to in the last month of 2022 and what’s in store for 2023! 🎆We’re here to bring you the latest news on integrations, partnerships, DAO governance news and find out about how you can contribute to the ShapeShift DAO.
With our mission to become the single source app for all things DeFi, we are excited to continue expanding our support for various digital assets and chains, allowing even more people to participate in self-sovereign finance.
All Chains, All Protocols, All Wallets. Share Our Vision at app.shapeshift.com.
ShapeShift Platform: Your Crypto. Your Control. 🔑
If you have been following the fallout of crypto exchange FTX, you likely heard the phrase, “Not your keys, not your crypto.” The FTX collapse sent shockwaves through the crypto world, with more and more people in the industry referring to self-custody in light of $8 billion of custodial consumer funds disappearing overnight.
At ShapeShift, we are excited to lead the crypto revolution by helping create and facilitate a borderless financial system built on open, decentralized protocols where users are in full custody of their funds.
So what can you do on the ShapeShift Platform?
🎢 On-ramp to crypto instantly with a debit/credit card or a bank transfer
💸 Connect with 150+ non-custodial wallet options
💰 Earn yield on your crypto by staking your ATOM, FOX, or 40+ other assets
📈 Trade with zero fees or KYC! We are powered by THORChain, CoWSwap and 0x providing native swaps, MEV protection & liquidity aggregation
Don’t have a wallet? create a self-custodial ShapeShift Native Wallet in seconds and start exploring the DeFi universe!
Self-sovereignty is at the heart of our ethos, and we will continue to empower our users to have freedom, choice and liberty in their financial choices.
Check out our blog to learn more about what self-custody means and the importance of holding your own keys.
ShapeShift Integrates CoW Protocol, DEX Aggregator of Aggregators
ShapeShift is excited to announce our integration with Meta DEX aggregator CoW protocol. Users can now buy and sell tokens using gasless orders, settle peer-to-peer transactions among users (cutting the DEX and associated slippage and gas fees out of the equation) and enjoy increased MEV protection.
As ShapeShift is one of the first platforms to fully integrate CoW protocol, we further position ourselves to be the best free app to buy, sell, earn, track, and trade assets while providing an innovative approach to user experience and transparency.
Learn more about this integration on our blog.
ShapeShifting 2022 into 2023!
In 2022, there was a lot of noise. A lot of FUD. However, we did what we’ve always done–ignored the noise and kept building!
In 2023, we have a strategic development plan and roadmap to continue to decentralize our entire stack and ensure our platform is the best gateway into decentralized finance. This roadmap lays out a strategic plan for the development of the product over the first three months of 2023. Through community discussions, research and time-phased projections, together we’ve identified a strategy that will give ShapeShift a unique position for which to attract a larger user base.
Thank you for being a part of our FOX Fam in 2022 and helping us build one of the most trustless, decentralized ways to interact with crypto.
