Over the last year, ShapeShift began its journey, providing effortless exchange of digital assets to the growing Bitcoin industry.
Much was accomplished: dozens of cryptocurrencies were integrated, over 45 partnerships were achieved, a strong legal structure established, more than $1.5 million dollars in capital raised, and exchange volumes grew 500%.
