London-based Bitcoin wallet service provider and technology developer Blockchain has announced the introduction of Ethereum to its platform. Blockchain has also integrated instant exchange ShapeShift so trading BTC to ETH and vice versa can happen all from one place.
“As popularity of Ethereum has grown, so has the desire from our customers to have the option to manage multiple digital assets within their Blockchain wallets. We are thrilled to introduce this new functionality to our community and will continue to find ways to make interacting with digital assets even easier,” commented Peter Smith, CEO of Blockchain.
Founded in 2011, Blockchain has created one of the most popular consumer wallets for digital assets in the world with over 16 million wallets across 140 countries. It recently raised an extra $40 million in a Series B funding round led by Lakestar and GV (formerly Google Ventures) with additional participation from Nokota Management and Digital Currency Group.

Instant digital asset exchange ShapeShift has achieved a number of high profile integrations like this recently. Last week Overstock.com, Inc.(NASDAQ:OSTK) has announced an integration with ShapeShift that allows customers to use more major cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Monero, and the new Bitcoin Cash, as payment.
Thanks to this, the exchange was able to acquire KeepKey, a digital wallet maker, in an all-bitcoin deal.
