ShapeShift, the service that allows users to instantly cross-convert dozens of cryptocurrencies and blockchain assets, has integrated bitcoin hardware wallet KeepKey to enable secure digital asset swapping. This means KeepKey users will be able to switch between Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin without ever having to expose their private keys on the internet. The two companies are calling this a huge step forward in security for traders – a very hot topic with all the hacked crypto exchanges recently.
KeepKey CEO Darin Stanchfield explained the value of the partnership with ShapeShift: “While digital asset security is KeepKey’s primary goal, we are making life easier for the growing number of consumers buying, selling and storing several types of cryptocurrency. They can swap whatever they like, whenever they like, without the hassle of setting up multiple wallets or addresses or signing up to various exchanges. For traders, it’s exciting to dramatically improve the speed and efficiency of the currency exchange process with the most secure hardware wallet on the market today.”

“KeepKey is a one-stop-shop for both users ‘long’ in cryptocurrency and frequent traders alike. It’s an impenetrable vault for digital wealth. The team at ShapeShift have built an extraordinary platform for exchanging these tokens, and we’re thrilled to present the combined effort to our customers,” Stanchfield added.
ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees said the joint effort between his team and KeepKey will provide significant advantages for both early adopters and newcomers to the world of cryptocurrency. “Simple and convenient security is paramount for the growth of this industry. KeepKey is wisely bringing that ethos to greater circles of digital asset users with the ShapeShift integration,” said Voorhees.
