Aragon, the decentralized management platform for companies, today announced a partnership with ShapeShift, a leading digital asset exchange, ahead of its token sale commencing tomorrow, May 17 2017.

The integration will allow Aragon buyers to participate in the token sale with over 45 different cryptocurrencies on the ShapeShift platform, including Bitcoin, Ether, Dash, and Litecoin.

Amongst the line-up of Aragon pre-sale buyers are ICONOMI and CoinFund.

Built on Ethereum, Aragon is the first management tool developed specifically to disintermediate the creation and maintenance of companies all around the world.

With a new type of company emerging, Aragon is building the tools for a next generation of decentralized organizations without corporeal and geographic forms. Aragon’s platform will put into place some fundamental features such as cap table management, governance, fundraising, payroll, and accounting, supporting all areas of company management.

Co-Founder and Project Lead at Aragon Luis Cuende said: “ShapeShift is known throughout the crypto space as one of the best digital asset exchanges. Featuring many of the leading blockchain tokens, ShapeShift will provide Aragon buyers with a fast and simple way to participate in our sale with a multitude of different cryptocurrencies.”

Founded in 2014 by Erik Voorhees, ShapeShift is a digital exchange enabling global trading of a variety of digital assets via web and mobile platforms without the need for email, passwords, sign ups or bid and ask orders.

“Aragon is pioneering the change in organizational structures, redefining how companies are managed worldwide. At ShapeShift we strive to align ourselves with companies that further advance and broaden the usage of blockchain technology and are delighted to play a role in Aragon’s upcoming token sale,” said Erik Voorhees, founder and CEO of ShapeShift.

With the strength of Aragon Core, a minimally-specified organization will be able to run on the Ethereum network.

A Module system will be implemented in order to enable further functionality to be built on top.

Fully decentralized organizations will be able to reap the benefits of the Aragon Network, the first decentralized autonomous organization whose goal is to act as a digital jurisdiction, making it easy for organizations, entrepreneurs, and buyers to operate.

“As a team we are dedicated and committed to the long term success of the project. Therefore, the Aragon token sale will be one of the first to restrict Founder and early contributor rewards with tokens which vest using smart contracts. We believe vesting should become a de-facto standard for all blockchain projects,” added Cuende.
