Bitcoin Hall of Fame # 5 - Erik Voorhees
Yes this is me doing a selfie with Erik Voorhees at the inaugural Token Summit in NYC. Through this meeting I managed to get myself onto the beta testing team for his new venture, a crypto asset trading platform called ‘Prism’. Erik is an American / Panamanian startup founder. He is co-founder of the bitcoin company Coinapult, worked as Director of Marketing at BitInstant, and was founder and partial owner of the bitcoin gambling website Satoshi Dice (subsequently sold in July 2013 to an undisclosed buyer). He was fined by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for an unregistered stock offering related to SatoshiDice. He is also the creator and CEO of the instant bitcoin and altcoin exchange ShapeShift.io, having founded and operated it under the alias Beorn Gonthier, until revealing his true involvement with the company, as part of a seed funding announcement, in March 2015. His most recent project is Prism, an assets trading platform powered by smart contracts.
