ShapeShift AG, a Swiss trading platform has recently declared acquisition of Bitfract for swapping Bitcoin [BTC]; providing two-fold benefits.The latter happens to be a software firm providing the users with the opportunity to interchange Bitcoin [BTC] with dozens of cryptocurrencies each transaction.

The twofold benefits

The acquisition would firstly, lay a positive impact on the user base, thereby, reaching out to a greater number of users. Secondly, Bitfract can serve as the supportive ground facilitating the expansion of its different proposals and products.

Bitfract assists in simplifying the purchasing procedure such that in easy steps the investors manage to rebalance their portfolio concerning digital assets. A varying range of cryptocurrencies get exposed to the users without the involvement of a number of transactions. This, in turn, helps to save money and time consumption.
