Changelly, a popular crypto exchanger, has announced it now supports FIO Protocol, a streamlined way of sending and receiving blockchain-based value, regardless of wallet, exchange, token, or coin used.
Starting today, Changelly users will be able to use FIO Addresses and FIO Request to make cryptocurrency purchases and swaps even easier.
The new integration is designed to simplify the process of interaction between users and the exchange. It allows users to initiate transactions using human-readable and memorable identifiers like john@crypto.
In addition to FIO Addresses, users will also now be able to take advantage of FIO Request; a feature that allows users to request funds directly from their FIO wallet instead of having to send the exact amount of crypto to an address provided by an exchange.
FIO Protocol currently provides the following features:
- FIO Addresses – a human-readable wallet identifier that eliminates the need to see, or even know of, blockchain public addresses.
- FIO Requests – the ability to request funds from any other wallet, utilizing in-wallet/app notifications and simple approvals.
- FIO Data – encrypted metadata that can be attached to any transaction, such as a simple memo, structured data (like an order cart), or hashes and references to off-chain data.
