According to Skeleton’s page on ShapeShift’s website, “The tool allows for exchanges to be made by a site’s users without them leaving the site.”

The code behind Skeleton is free and open-source, says the page, adding that it also offers a customizable template, which provides integrators with the choice to brand the tool with their own colors and assets.

Voorhees told CoinReport:

“We’ve tried to replicate the openness and flexibility of Bitcoin in our products. Skeleton means any website can enable users to exchange digital assets as easily as any website can show a Bitcoin price ticker or twitter feed.”

In its press release on PRWeb, ShapeShift mentions, “CoinCap.io, a market data website, used Skeleton to let users buy leading cryptocurrencies directly from its list of coins on the homepage,” adding, “See this example here.”

Skeleton is ShapeShift’s most recently offered tool. Other tools include the Shifty Button, a merchant processing widget, and the Lens Plugin, a web extension that enables users to pay leading cryptocurrencies to any Bitcoin address on a webpage.
