Erik Voorhees | CEO and Founder, ShapeShift AG
Erik Voorhees is among the top-recognized serial Bitcoin advocates and entrepreneurs, understanding Bitcoin as one of the most important inventions ever created by humanity.
Having been a featured guest on Bloomberg, Fox Business, CNBC, BBC Radio, The Peter Schiff Show, and numerous Bitcoin and industry conferences, Erik humbly suggests that there is no such thing as a “free market” when the institution of money itself is centrally planned and controlled.
Erik founded ShapeShift AG in August 2014 as an elegant, secure, and fast solution to digital asset exchanges. Prior to the creation of ShapeShift, buying digital assets was a lengthy process that required account creation and forfeiture of personal data to the service provider.
Erik’s past blockchain company affiliations include: BitInstant, Coinapult and, most notably, SatoshiDice, which was responsible for most of the Bitcoin transactions in 2012 and 2013.
