Erik Voorhees, CEO & Founder of ShapeShift, joins us for his 4th appearance on the show. ShapeShift recently announced they are decentralizing the company and its products, which would see the company transition from a centralized entity and platform to a DAO. With the largest airdrop in history they distributed FOX tokens to over a million customers and DeFi community members, who will eventually fully control the exchange.

In this episode we hear the reasoning behind this shift, cross-chain Interoperability, the FOX token, and the future of the Shapeshift platform as a DAO.

Topics covered in this episode:

  • The journey of ShapeShift since Erik's last appearance on the show
  • What led ShapeShift to becoming decentralized and the process so far
  • ShapeShift as a product - its features and how it will be accessed
  • The future structure of Shapeshift as a DAO
  • Cross-chain Interoperability and the Cosmos ecosystem
  • The goal of the FOX token
  • The future of the ShapeShift ecosystem
