Latest news from Josh at Ethershift
In the last few weeks we have added a lot of new coins including, Dent, Bread, Ethlend, Axpire, adToken, Polymath, Eterbase, Dragonchain, Singularitynet, and more! Today we are adding Gemini Dollar (GUSD), and tomorrow we are adding the winner of our first listing poll, Edgeless.
Edgeless.io “is an Ethereum smart contract-based Casino, that offers a 0% house edge and solves the casino transparency question once and for all.” Check them out. They’re a great project and we’re happy to have them on Ethershift!
On January 4th with launched our gift card section and are really pleased with the results so far. Giving people a way to USE the coins they already have is a really useful feature, and we’ll be rolling out other similar things like this in the future. For now most of these cards only work on the US .com sites but we’re working on adding other globally supported cards very soon.
We’ve also been adding quite a few non profit organizations and charities to Ethershift. Using any token we support, you can now donate to FreeRoss.org, Thewaterproject.org, Antiwar.com, Fee.org, Misis.org, austinfoodbank.org, and more! We will keep adding more of these in the future as well. These organizations all take bitcoin. So when we receive donations in any of the alt coins we support, we convert them to bitcoin and send the organizations public bitcoin address. On our new site in February, we will display the transaction hashes going to charities for transparency.
Speaking of the new site in February. We are rebranding, and changing our name to “Switch”. We will be adding other blockchains such as btc, bch, ltc, etc, as well as expanding into other interesting and unique options to swap asset value in a fast easy way, and I think “Switch” more encompasses the vision we have.
For ESH token holders we will be using the same token and same ticker so there’s no need to do anything!
Also for ESH token holders, the next ESH airdrop is January 31st. We will take a snapshot on January 29th, and distribute the 31st. You don’t need to do anything at all! Just keep them in your wallet!
We’ve also had a lot of requests from people that would like to be able to buy ESH before the airdrop. We have made ESH available on Ethershift right now at the rate of 200 ESH per ether. We‘ve made 20,000 ESH available for this. We will list ESH on the site until 20,000 ESH has sold, or until January 24th.
