Erik Voorhees, founder of Shapeshift, has introduced Venice, a new AI platform promising enhanced privacy and unrestricted free speech.

Unlike mainstream AI services, Venice operates without centralied oversight, ensuring a private and uncensored user experience.

Utilising open-source technology, Venice priorities user privacy and data security, offering end-to-end encrypted interactions with no monitoring or storage of user data.

It stands out in the AI landscape by advocating for uncensored and unbiased communication, providing functionalities like text chat, image generation, and code development while empowering user autonomy.

Voorhees envisions Venice as part of a movement against big tech monopolies, promoting decentralised and permissionless digital services to advance privacy, free speech, and civilizational progress.
