ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees Wants Whole World in Crypto's Big Tent


By CCN: With the bitcoin price trading above $8,000 once again, the mainstream financial media has once again taken an interest in cryptocurrencies. ShapeShift CEO and Founder Erik Voorhees was featured in an interview with Bloomberg where he confronted the bitcoin bubble debate and regulation. While the ecosystem is evolving since Voorhees first entered the space, as evidenced by regulators now participating in industry events, Voorhees isn't uncomfortable with the direction in which it's going.

"I want crypto to be a big tent. I want the whole world to be using it. And most of the world doesn't think like I do. So I'm glad to see people of diverse opinions starting to use this stuff. I'm glad that people are building out in different directions. And I think ultimately that makes it stronger and more resilient."
