ShapeShift is a web and API platform formed in July of 2014 to provide instant Bitcoin and altcoin conversion with the maximum level of consumer protection and efficiency.

Gitcoin is a platform to enable open source developers to monetize their work when it is used. Gitcoin was borne of the community in Boulder, Colorado’s thriving tech scene.
