ShapeShift Adds NEO Token to Exchange

ShapeShift is hitting the ground running in 2018!

We are excited to announce we have added the Chinese token NEO to the exchange. ShapeShift users can now buy and sell NEO with 60+ digital assets including Bitcoin, Ether, Dash, XRP, Bitcoin Cash and dozens more.

China-based NEO, formally known as Antshares, is a distributed network based on digital assets, digital identity, and smart contract technology. NEO seeks to digitize assets and create a stronger connection between the traditional and digital economies. NEO launched their ICO for NEO tokens in 2016. The token is a tradable blockchain asset based on smart contract technology.

“The NEO token is an exciting addition to ShapeShift’s platform. NEO has emerged as a leader in China’s blockchain community and a strong player in the realization of the smart economy. We’re happy this partnership has come to fruition,” said ShapeShift Founder and CEO Erik Voorhees.

NEO has built a blockchain that uses delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance for security instead of Proof of Work or Proof of Stake. This validation method is a more efficient way of reaching consensus.  Through its multi-faceted approach to blockchain technology, NEO looks to usher in the Smart Economy.

As one of the largest crypto-to-crypto exchanges, ShapeShift’s inclusion of NEO expands NEO users ability to seamlessly interact with many of the leading cryptocurrency assets. You can immediately utilize the ShapeShift website or API to convert between NEO and leading blockchain assets such as Bitcoin.
