Roger Ver is considered one of the most popular figures in the Bitcoin world. Born in 27th of January, 1979, he is one of the earliest investors in bitcoin/cryptocurrency-related startups. He has been a very prominent advocate and supporter for the adoption of bitcoin and believes in bitcoin potential to empower economic freedom ( which eventually earned his the nickname “Bitcoin Jesus”).

Roger Ver is born and raised in Silicon Valley. After serving a 10-month prison sentence as a result of illegal sale of explosives, he migrated to Japan in 2005. Upon obtaining a Saint Kitts and Nevis passport in 2014, he decided to renounce his US citizenship.

He is now the vocal proponents of Bitcoin Cash, a cryptocurrency as a result of the hard fork of Bitcoin, which attempt to solve multiple issues plaguing  Bitcoin, including expensive transaction fees and long transaction confirmation times.  Nevertheless, in recent years, Roger Ver’s opinions on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, as has his personal story, has become more and more controversial and polarizing.

Here’s a few quotes from Roger Ver, “The Bitcoin Jesus” that you might find interesting.

    Bitcoin is amazingly transformative because it's the first time in the entire history of the world in which anybody can now send or receive any amount of money, with anyone else, anywhere on the planet, without having to ask permission from any bank or government.

    I like to call myself a voluntaryist. That means that I think that all human interaction should be on a voluntary basis. And that nobody should be able to use force or fraud in any human interaction whatsoever.

    At first, almost everyone who got involved did so for philosophical reasons. We saw bitcoin as a great idea, as a way to separate money from the state.

    PayPal came within an inch of being shut down by regulators when they started. The feds seizing the Dwolla account and stealing the money that is owned by Mt. Gox customers is more proof that Bitcoin is the superior payment system.

    Bitcoin will experience many bubbles along its way to improving the lives of everyone on the planet. I'm not concerned with the short-term price fluctuations.

    I think most politicians have almost no understanding of economics; otherwise, they wouldn't have become politicians.
