ShapeShift 101: How to Reuse Deposit Addresses with ShapeShift Exchange

Our support team finds that our customers consistently want to know if they can reuse our deposit address in order to do the same sort of transaction over and over again. For example, let's say you have an exchange bot that you want to execute a bitcoin to Litecoin Exchange every Tuesday at 11 am. You would like to have a Bitcoin deposit address that every time bitcoin is sent to it, ShapeShift does an exchange to Ether. The short answer to this question is, yes.

Original vs. NEW ShapeShift.io

We began rolling out the new ShapeShift.io website at the end of February 2016. Many people have been asking why we have created this new user interface and how to use the features that are now provided. Since our inception in August of 2014, we have added many new features and options for our users. Over this time, we realized that the original user interface began to look cluttered and was becoming increasingly more difficult for us to explain how to use each feature without the screen getting cluttered. Thus, we have been working to provide you with a new user experience, clean and clear and easier to use.

我们在2016年2月底的时候开始推出新版的ShapeShift.io网站。很多人问我们为什么要创建这个新版的用户界面以及如何使用我们提供的新功能。自从2014年八月创办以来,我们就为用户增添了许多新的特色和功能。在这段时间中,我们意识到原来的用户界面看起来杂乱无章,并且越来越难以用来解释每一个新功能。因此,我们努力想要为用户们提供新的用户体验,提供一个干净、清爽、便于使用的网站。
