The NEM.io Foundation, creators of the P2P NEM blockchain platform today announced that ShapeShift will integrate NEM’s XEM token, providing greater liquidity options to token holders.
ShapeShifts simple-to-use exchange plays an important role in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, and its extensive API is used by many third parties as the back-end to power services helping to provide liquidity to cryptocurrencies.
The NEM team is working to integrate ShapeShift into their Nanowallet, to offer similar convenience already available through Changelly. The Nanowallet is a native NEM desktop wallet providing users the ability to directly exchange XEM for other cryptocurrencies.
“At NEM, we are constantly looking for ways to better serve our community and XEM token holders. We’ve received many requests to make XEM more available on exchanges, and our integration with ShapeShift is a major step forward in providing flexibility and liquidity to the community.”
Since the NEM.io Foundation announced a $40 million expansion earlier this year, NEM has been rapidly developing Catapult, its second and completely augmented iteration. NEM’s expansion also includes at 10,000 square-foot Innovation Lab in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which will house the NEM Blockchain Innovation Lab and serve as an accelerator, incubator, and coworking space.
The NEM.io Foundation will also begin operations in Europe starting with a training program for software developers in October.
NEM’s smart asset solution, which does not require programming to create, was recently used by the Bankera and Comsa to facilitate their pre-ICOs.
