Erik Voorhees Details

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 โ€œfree marketโ€ when the institution of money itself is centrally planned and controlled. Erik founded ShapeShift in August 2014 as an elegant, secure, and fast solution to digital asset exchanges.

As a non-custodial solution, ShapeShift offers users the ability to convert digital assets without having to trust a centralized entity. Erik was most recently featured on the 2016 documentary, โ€œBanking on Bitcoin.โ€ His past blockchain company affiliations include: BitInstant, Coinapult and, most notably, SatoshiDice, which was responsible for most of the Bitcoin transactions in 2012 and 2013
