ShapeShift is excited to announce our newest partnership! Bitpay, the first and most experienced company in bitcoin payments, has integrated with the free, open-source ShapeShift API to provide users of their Bitpay and Copay wallet the ability to exchange between Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Prior to the ShapeShift integration, Bitpay and Copay Wallet customers could only hold Bitcoin.
Now ShapeShift's popular service for exchanging, or "shifting" between cryptocurrencies is available in the BitPay and Copay wallets by default. Copay customers will now be able to exchange Bitcoin Cash for Bitcoin or Bitcoin for Bitcoin Cash wherever and whenever they would like. Prefer to hodl just one currency? Want to balance your holdings in both? No problem. Customers needing more Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash for a payment can quickly trade for the currency type needed.
Stephen Pair, Bitpay CEO said, "ShapeShift has built a powerful service for blockchain payments users. We're excited to be working with them to give more choice to BitPay and Copay wallet users in how they save, store, and spend their money."
