I understood the reference to the recent price action to be remarkable for NBT, because it was able to keep the peg perfectly while all other (non-pegged) currencies were fluctuating wildly
I’ve not fully understood whether payment at ISG3D with NBT is solely possible through shapeshift.io or there’s a way to directly pay with NBT.
I read it as NBT payment is possible through shapeshift.io by converting them to BTC to have them sent to Bitpay.
Wouldn’t it make sense to do it exactly the other way round?
I mean, as NBT are stable (in difference to BTC, etc.), it would make sense to accept NBT payment directly and offer those customers who want to pay with BTC and other currencies to make use of shapeshift.io.
That would make transactions cheaper as it would allow to bypass Bitpay and their fees
What shifty allows ISG3D to do is just integrate our exchange button so that they are able to accept all of the altcoins we offer, including Nubits. It actually makes it incredibly simple for the merchant to offer a wide array of crypto purchases to be made.
We do not integrate with BitPay, what ISG3D is saying is that by using BitPay to allow for them to accept Bitcoin, they are able to also integrate our Shifty button so that they are able to offer their consumers the ability to pay with any of the altcoins we support with a simple HTML button that the website owner includes their Bitcoin address with. It’s not being used through BitPay.
Thanks, sorry if you had issues with ShapeShift, we are still at a very early stage of cryptocurrency acceptation with merchants.
ShapeShift takes care of the payment, and we take care of the checkout. We will receive a payment on our BTC address when NuBits payment is done, and then you can contact us at ISG3DPrinting@gmail.com with shipping info, or we will get in touch quickly if you left your email address.
However, the best way is probably to download ShapeShift Lens Plug-In on Chrome or Firefox. It allows you to pay in NuBits directly to any Bitcoin address.
