Blockchain Wallet, one of the most popular wallets in the cryptocurrency world, has just added support for Ethereum cryptocurrency. In addition, the British company enters into a partnership agreement with ShapeShift, the platform for instant cryptocurrency exchange.

Thus, according to the report, for users looking to acquire Ether, the company is excited to introduce a built-in BTC to ETH (and vice versa) exchange, powered by ShapeShift. Accessible directly within the Blockchain wallet, this integration makes it easy for users to acquire both digital currencies and monitor exchange progress, from start to finish. 

As popularity of Ethereum has grown, so has the desire from our customers to have the option to manage multiple digital assets with their Blockchain wallets. We are thrilled to introduce this new functionality to our community and will continue to find ways to make interacting with digital assets even easier.

Peter Smith also highlights that "this is just the first iteration of this product". In the coming weeks and months (and years), the company will continue to gather user feedback and use that to further build out this integration. 

GRAM May be Traded at Liquid at Triple ICO Price

Bloomberg says that Telegram tokens, that may appear at Liquid will be sold by Gram Asia at $4 per token, but there's no official info from Telegram

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
