KeepKey, the hardware cryptocurrency wallet provider has announced the integration of ShapeShift. This integration will enable the company’s hardware wallet users to swap their digital currency assets from within the device itself.
The partnership announcement between KeepKey and ShapeShift makes it the first ever hardware wallet provider to integrate the latter’s crypto-crypto exchange service. Currently, the service allows wallet users to swap between three leading digital assets namely, Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin (all cryptocurrencies presently supported by the device).
At the time when hacking incidents involving digital currency wallets and exchanges have become a regular occurrence, KeepKey will offer extra comfort and peace of mind to cryptocurrency traders. By using the new inbuilt ShapeShift feature, traders can now trade directly from their hardware wallet without having to expose their private keys to the internet.
The company has announced that it will soon be including support for other well-known cryptocurrencies as well. In the press release, the CEO of KeepKey Darin Stanchfield says,
“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
