  • 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.
