Thanks, reaching out now. Getting bitUSD on there would be amazing.

Toast mentioned working on something related to the Bitcoin API in another post. I wonder if these types of projects tie right into the initiative?

This service is awesome.  I just used it for the first time to convert some Namecoin that's been sitting in my Bitminter account into Bitcoin.  Very quick and easy and great UX.

I've heard some talk on the boards of a web based BitShares wallet in development.  If bitUSD is integrated into ShapeShift, it would be fairly easy to integrate into the web wallet, via Shapeshifts API, to allow new users to deposit BTC and receive bitUSD in their wallet.  Users could then withdraw bitUSD directly to BTC. 

Integrating ShapeShift into a web wallet would also be a great selling point for getting bitUSD supported on their platform.

Just wondering , what's the difference if I sell some Namecoin on BTC38 for BTC instead of this service ?

Different exchange rates and a lot less hassle with ShapeShift.

don’t need to open an account, less steps for the same result...

Streamlining the process like this is huge in facilitating broader adoption of cryptocurrencies.

"The result allows any Bitcoin invoice, including those from merchants such as Amazon or Overstock, to be paid, for example, in Dogecoin or Litecoin."

Anyone that accepts Bitcoin indirectly accepts the alts ShapeShift supports.
