WSJ Investigation Alleges $88 Million Laundered Through 46 Crypto Exchanges
The Wall Street Journal claimed Friday that 46 crypto exchanges were used to launder nearly $90 million – with $9 million going through ShapeShift.
ShapeShift’s new one-stop shop for non-custodial crypto management is launching out of private beta today.

ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees condemned a Wall Street Journal investigation claiming the exchange laundered money as being "inaccurate."
Erik Voorhees always seems slightly out of step. An early evangelist for the tech, Voorhees may be a rarity in that he has not only maintained but grown his relevance on the industry stage, all the while fighting for an unpopular block size increase and launching projects that seem years ahead of their time. Still, controversy seems not to catch this sly fox, as 2017 saw a victory lap for Voorhees, who emerged as one of the few early advocates who's been able to adapt to its changes.
