The roadmap for the ShapeShift DAO is ultimately driven by the community of FOX Token holders. Currently the community is aligned on–and rapidly progressing toward–the following mission and vision:
Vision: We envision a borderless financial system built on open, decentralized protocols.
Mission: We shall be the pathway into this borderless financial system; an open-source, multi-chain, self-custody crypto platform enabling billions to achieve financial sovereignty.
An early, in-progress version of the new ShapeShift is live at https://app.shapeshift.com. This version is open-source, supports multiple wallets, multiple blockchains (not limited to EVM-compatible networks), and is architected for complete decentralization.
The new ShapeShift, powered by a full open-source stack including HDWallet, Unchained, Chain Adapters, and Web repositories, will enable completely decentralized access to DeFi protocols across any chain. Additionally, the upcoming FOX Chain will provide backend node infrastructure for any interface that wants to be truly decentralized, including ShapeShift’s.
Finally, through integrations with DEX and DEX aggregator protocols such as 0x, CowSwap, THORChain, and Osmosis (in-progress), ShapeShift enables users to seamlessly move crypto assets across chains with no KYC, custody, nor added fees. With the understanding that both the decentralized interface and blockchain data infrastructure are imperative to bringing DeFi to the masses, the ShapeShift community is actively coordinating to build this.
