Self-custody crypto platform Shapeshift has launched a mobile trading app for iOS and android users.

Users can now buy and sell digital assets such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) without trusting their private keys to a 3rd party.

The app only requires users to use an email address and password to sign in. The app is currently supporting:

  • BTC
  • ETH
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • DigiByte (DGB)
  • TrueUSD TUSD
  • ERC-20 tokens

Shapeshift CEO and Founder Erik Voorhees stated:

“As traditional financial systems become increasingly tenuous, Bitcoin offers refuge and empowerment. We’re here to make it easy.”

Shapeshift states that users from all 120 countries, including the U.S. have access to the app:

The app is a culmination of six years of development and also allows users to purchase Bitcoin with a credit or debit card.

In April 2020, Shapeshift acquired Israeli crypto wallet Portis. Users will soon be able to log into multiple decentralized finance services from one account.

Recently, London-based bank Revolut too added the ability to purchase BTC and ETH via its mobile banking app, announcing that more cryptocurrencies will be added in the future for U.S.-based customers.

European users can also purchase Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and XRP.
