August 17th, 2017 – At Blockchain, we care deeply about building products users love.  We’re constantly collecting user feedback and using it to help determine where we go next.

Today, we’re excited to announce that you can now seamlessly store, send, and receive ether from within the Blockchain wallet. By adding ether as a new currency, we’re providing users with a new diverse way to interact with the digital economy.

Using the same user-friendly interface, you can now seamlessly toggle between bitcoin and ether. To keep it simple, the ether experience will mirror the bitcoin experience our users have come to love.

For more information about the ins and outs of ether and how it works in your Blockchain wallet, visit our Support Center Learning Portal.

For users looking to acquire ether, we’re excited to introduce a built-in BTC to ETH (and vice versa) exchange, powered by ShapeShift. Accessible directly within your Blockchain wallet, this integration makes it easy for users to acquire both digital currencies and monitor exchange progress, from start to finish.

Of course, in keeping with our ethos, this is just the first iteration of this product. In the coming weeks and months (and years!), we’ll continue to gather user feedback and use that to further build out this integration. Let us know what you think and where to go next.
