#25: Erik Voorhees

Erik Voorhees is founder of ShapeShift, a instant bitcoin and altcoin exchange. He was first notable for purchasing and exiting the bitcoin gambling website Satoshi Dice. He first founded the company as Beorn Gonthier. But, in an March attempt to raise funds in a seed round, he revealed his role in the project.

Voorhees looks upon the central banking with great suspicion. The Federal Reserve System is “fraudulent” in his opinion, and he advocates for “the separation of money and state.”

Once the Chief Marketing Officer at BitInstant, alongside Charlie Shrem, Voorhees reportedly sold SatoshiDice for $11.5 million. Check out ShapeShift.

He is active on Twitter.
