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, 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. In July 2013, Voorhees sold one of his companies for 126,315 bitcoins, valued at $11.5M ($83M as of Jun 7 2014), and described as the “first big Bitcoin acquisition”. He is also the creator and CEO of the instant bitcoin and altcoin exchange ShapeShift.io.
