PRISM by ShapeShift: Beta test experience!

in crypto-news •  last year

Those of you in Cryptosphere know all about ShapeShift and the many great things Erik Voorhees and his team bring to the crypto world. Not too long ago I wrote about how ShapeShift acquired KeepKey hardware wallet maker. ShapeShift is back again with their soon to be released PRISM platform.

I've previously blogged about being part of the PRISM closed beta. I want to share with you my PRISM Beta testing experience.

PRISM is a way to combine your digital assets into a portfolio called a PRISM and allow you and other people to buy into the PRISM using Ether (Ethereum/ETH) to fuel the PRISM. You can invest in the coins of your choice all at once in a divided portfolio without having to trust a third-party with your funds which is called "counter-party risk". The whole system works entirely on Ethereum smart-contracts.

So logging in, as you can see from the introduction image is pretty cool since they even have a built-in CIVIC ID as a login choice which is a cryptographic identity system run on a blockchain using the CVC token.

Once logged into the Beta I'm presented with a very clean a straightforward interface.

You'll notice that you can switch the site from showing ETH (ethereum or "ether") and USD. You also get a very simple button to get started building your PRISM using your "Buyer Address". I won't get into the details of how PRISM works but mainly will just show you my experience using the platform.

There's even a leaderboard where you can see who's Prism has had the most earnings and return since Prisms are shareable and you can simply invest in other people's Prisms as well.

If we drill down into the Rank #1 Prism we can see the breakdown.

You can see buttons at the top to easily rebalance your Prism. This triggers a rebalance function to the smart-contract.

I've also explored creating a Prism of my own and I must say, it was super easy and fun.

And yes, I've included Doge you can't go to the moon without good 'ole Doge!

Here at the top you can see the PRISM I've created called "HODL LONG" with 5 digital assets.


Overall I had a super pleasant experience. The simplicity of the site makes me feel as though it can't be that easy. The product is amazing and the rates are awesome. Prism is really paving the way for multi-digital asset investment and management. I really look forward to when this goes live to see how everyone's Prism really does. Will your favorite YouTuber create a Prism that you can follow?

And shoutout to Raine Revere and her team. I attended one of her talks on Prism which is how I gained access to the Beta. Outstanding work!

Thank to share this information & your experience! I've been interest by this project after it's announcement. More, can you give us some of your already feeling in the fees on Prism platform? I know their exist but I don't know how costly they are...

I may try it unless i dislike Eric Voorhees claim on segwit2x



Thanks! I was thinking of doing a follow-up article on the technical feels and paying for a PRISM. I'll wait until perhaps after the Beta when hopefully we'll have more concrete numbers as current fees are probably subject to change.
