ShapeShift.io, an instant Bitcoin and altcoin exchange service this week made their latest announcement. The instant exchange is integrating their API with Coinomi, a free, open-source wallet for Bitcoin and multiple crypto-currencies, available as an Android application.
The latest API integration allows Coinomi wallet users to quickly convert between each supported altcoin within the wallet without the user having to leave the Android application.
Coinomi Founder CEO George Kimionis stated:
“We are very excited about this API integration as for the first time users holding more than one coin in their wallet will be able to seamlessly convert from one coin to another without having to leave their wallet app but also to spend their altcoins where only bitcoin payments are accepted without having to manually convert their coins.”
Coinomi is a free, user-friendly, lightweight, secure, fast, reliable, open-source, universal HD Wallet for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, currently available for Android devices. The coins currently supported are: Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Peercoin, Dash, Monacoin, Digibyte, Reddcoin, NuBits, NuShares, Blackcoin, Feathercoin, Rubycoin, Digitalcoin and Cannacoin, with many more to come.
ShapeShift COO commented:
“From the start Coinomi has always been the most used mobile wallet in our office because of its multi-coin capability and so we are very excited for this partnership,” said, “Converting cryptocurrencies within the app itself has been a magical experience.”
The Coinomi wallet currently supports Dogecoin, Litecoin and Bitcoin, as well as many other major cryptocurrencies. Only available as an Android app, Coinomi plans to release their IOS app version within the next few months. Developed to be primarily used as an API, ShapeShift’s integration with Coinomi’s wallet is the first of many the instant altcoin exchange hopes to support.
Outside of their API offering, ShapeShift offers an intuitive, user-friendly website exchange for direct consumer usage. Coinomi integration will enable Shapeshift.io to allow immediate altcoin conversion to fiat currency.
