We’re excited to announce a new release of Edge, v1.4.0. We’ve made some huge strides in this release with the addition of support for the #6 cryptocurrency, Stellar, and one of the most popular instant exchange providers, Changelly.
With the addition of Stellar, Edge now supports 8 of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap. And we do this within a fully user-controlled, non-custodial wallet. This isn’t just “investor exposure” to these assets using derivatives. You truly own and control your digital currency.
Stellar provides fast and incredibly cheap transactions on their network with a growing number of dapps being built on top of the platform including the peer to peer insurance network, Tides.
Changelly support now gives Edge users the ability to exchange dozens of new cryptocurrencies including Stellar and Zcoin, two supported assets in Edge that were not previously supported without Changelly.
“At Changelly we are truly excited about this partnership as the main idea of simplicity and edge-security that forms the core of Edge’s ideology is very aligned to ours. Changelly support now gives Edge users the ability to exchange dozens of new cryptocurrencies including Stellar and Zcoin, two supported assets in Edge that were not previously supported without Changelly.” – Changelly CEO, Ilya Bere
Support for both Changelly and other exchanges now gives users the first price hunting in-wallet exchange experience. Pick a currency pair and an amount, and Edge will find the best price across supported exchanges. While similar services have been provided by centralized, custodial services, we now bring this to the “edge” of the network, to you, on your phone, with no 3rd party custodian.
In addition, this new version also adds:
- Language support for Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian
- Purchase of Ripple (XRP) with credit card through Simplex
- Support for ShapeShift memberships
- Ability to choose a custom node for connecting to BTC, BCH, DASH, DGB, LTC, FTC, XZC, QTUM, VTC, UFO, and BTG networks
