Show Notes Chapter Markers

Ben Weiss co-founded CoinFlip in 2015 and served as the Chief Operating Officer before being appointed as Chief Executive Officer in April 2021. Since its inception, Ben has led the company’s strategy and helped CoinFlip surpass $1B in transaction volume. In addition to running a burgeoning startup, Ben spends his time working with governing bodies toward cryptocurrency regulation. Regarded as a thought leader in the space, he is regularly interviewed by major news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN Business, and Moneywise, and has given several keynote speeches about the future of cryptocurrency.

 Ben graduated from Vanderbilt with a degree in Economics. Compelled by cryptocurrency’s lack of accessibility, he sought to create a cash-to-crypto ATM service. Since then, CoinFlip has expanded to n nearly 4,000 ATMs across the country and Canada, maintaining a strong record of regulatory compliance to ensure the safety and security of its customers. The company will keep that central focus, as well as map out new opportunities internationally and across its product lines.

Under his leadership, CoinFlip placed 60th on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list as the top-ranked cryptocurrency company, was named the 2021 and 2022 #1 fastest-growing company in Chicago by Crain's, and was awarded the 2021 and 2022 Stevie ® Awards for Customer Service.
