Now, Ledger Nano S owners can plug directly into the new ShapeShift Platform, earn 100 FOX tokens and take advantage of the industry’s only free crypto-to-crypto trading option. We hope this further encourages people away from custodial alternatives.” — Erik Voorhees, ShapeShift CEO

ShapeShift, one of the world’s leading self-custody crypto exchanges, announced today that its much anticipated integration with Ledger Nano S devices is now live on the ShapeShift Platform. Ledger Nano S users can plug their hardware wallet into ShapeShift.com and enjoy zero-commission crypto trading from their device. They also receive 100 FOX tokens after signup.
The integration gives Ledger Nano S users free access to ShapeShift’s simple web interface and powerful dashboard for portfolio management. Users can track, send, receive, and secure their crypto without an account at Beta.ShapeShift.com. Users can also buy and trade crypto with a verified account.
“The crypto revolution is meaningless if people don’t control their own keys,” said ShapeShift founder and CEO, Erik Voorhees. “Ledger’s hardware wallet is the most popular in the world. Now, Ledger Nano S owners can plug directly into the new ShapeShift Platform, earn 100 FOX tokens and take advantage of the industry’s only free crypto-to-crypto trading option. We hope this further encourages people away from custodial alternatives.”
Having pioneered a self-custody model with its original crypto trading service, the new ShapeShift.com expands that same ethos into an integrated web platform for digital asset management. Users retain complete control of their crypto assets and private keys through their hardware wallet, but now have the convenience and ease-of-use typically found in centralized solutions.
“Both Ledger and ShapeShift uniquely understand the importance of crypto users having complete control of their digital assets and private keys, which makes this partnership a perfect fit,” said Ledger’s CEO Pascal Gauthier. “This integration gives Ledger users free access to ShapeShift’s platform, providing yet another option for managing their assets with the security peace of mind that Ledger is known for.”
The Ledger integration for Nano S comes as the latest feature addition to the ShapeShift Platform. In November, ShapeShift brought zero commission trading to its platform through its highly anticipated FOX token. Each FOX token provides $10 of free trading volume on a rolling 30-day basis. The tokens aren’t spent or consumed; customers hold them in their wallets. New users can create an account in minutes and receive 100 FOX tokens, enabling $1,000 of commission free trading every 30 days.
