ShapeShift团队关于以太坊的公告(10/13/2016)

一般来说,基于以太的交易需要几个小时(或者甚至一两天)才能进入第一个区块。 我们会继续保持以太市场开放,但是如果你使用它的话,请允许他们的延时。你不会损失任何资金,但是你可能无法看到他们很快到账。

Official Note on Ethereum from the ShapeShift Team (10/13/2016)

As some are aware, there have been ongoing malicious attacks on the Ethereum network over the past week or two. The attacks are changing and evolving, and as one vector is fixed, others are opened up. This struggle could continue for a while, unfortunately, though we’re confident Ethereum will emerge stronger. What this means for our users is this: Anyone doing an order with Ethereum (or Ethereum-based assets -- Reputation REP, Digix DGD and SingularDTV SNGLS) should expect considerable delays in their order processing. Generally, Ethereum-based transactions are simply taking hours (or even a day or two) to get into their first block.

A Timeline: ShapeShift Hacking Incident

Over the last few weeks, ShapeShift.io was the victim of several hacking incidents that ultimately resulted in us having to take down the website in order to fully investigate the hackings as well as rebuild infrastructure and securities. In order to provide you, our users, with a full breakdown of our reporting, we are releasing this post, which compiles all articles and updates that were released publicly to explain the scenarios. We compile this information for you, as it is of utmost importance to us that we are transparent with our loyal users.

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. 

新旧ShapeShift.io版本对比

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。

ShapeShift Removes Seven Coins from the Exchange

Over time, ShapeShift will remove poorly performing coins in order to focus support and liquidity efforts on more popular assets, such as Dash, Ethereum, Monero, Litecoin, etc.
