If you have been exploring how to buy and sell cryptocurrency you’ve probably come across ShapeShift. The company has been helping its customers exchange assets since 2014, making them one of the most established financial services in the growing crypto ecosystem.

ShapeShift's CEO Erik Voorhees is one of the most well-known names in the blockchain movement, and has been working on decentralization projects since his involvement in the Free State Project back in 2001. Erik has been at the center of conversations surrounding the future of crypto, including legal proceedings with the U.S. SEC. As someone who has worked through the complex and often hostile regulatory environment crypto faces, he has an excellent perspective on how the industry will continue taking shape and what entrepreneurs and regulators can do to foster a market of innovation. In this interview, Erik and I discuss the future of cryptocurrency exchanges and what regulators should know about the fast-evolving technology.
