Today, 9 October 2018, Bloomberg has announced that Chief Executive Officer of Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver intends to purchase or launch a cryptocurrency trading platform.
Roger Ver, a famous crypto personality and the CEO of Bitcoin.com has big plans regarding his future activity within the crypto space.
Speaking for Bloomberg, the Bitcoin investor claimed:
“If we build it ourselves, we can do it really, really cheap, and we get exactly what we want… But we don’t have the security of a battle-tested exchange that’s been around for a while.”
Being as well a promoter of Bitcoin Cash, Ver shared that his exchange’s ‘base currency’ might become BCH. Bearing in mind that the platform will be interconnected with Bitcoin.com, it will “have thousands or tens of thousands of new users every single day.”
Interviewed at World Blockchain Forum London 2018, Roger Ver explained about his first interaction with the crypto world:
“I heard about Bitcoin for the first time on a radio show called ‘Free talk live’, which is a libertarian-oriented radio program out of the US and they were talking about it in reference to the Silk Road. And I personally wasn’t interested in drugs at all myself but I thought, what the heck kind of money are they using to buy and sell these drugs on the internet. And so that’s why I googled Bitcoin started looking into it. And I realized that this is going to change everything because now there’s suddenly money that nobody can control and people can send and receive it with anyone. It’s beyond the control of any bank or government or anyone. So it’s a game changer for the entire world. And here we are today.”
Asked what he thinks about Bitmain‘s supply of Bitcoin Cash, Ver answered that:
“It’s incredibly bullish. This is the most successful company in the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem and the fact that they chose Bitcoin cash as the cryptocurrency of choice is an incredibly bullish sign so it’s fantastic and when they have their IPO, they’re not going to need to sell any of their coins. If anything, they will have more money and they can buy more Bitcoin cash. So it’s an incredibly incredibly incredibly bullish sign for Bitcoin cash and it’s worth pointing out that the CEO of Bitmain was the first person in the entire world to translate the original Bitcoin white paper from English into Chinese and so thanks to Jihan the CEO Bitmain he’s the one who spread Bitcoin to China just like I was actually the one with some help to translate the Bitcoin white paper and the Bitcoin.org website all into Japanese and I brought Bitcoin to Japan, so we have Jihan who brought Bitcoin to China and myself who brought Bitcoin to Japan and to a large extent the rest of the world both of us are saying Bitcoin cash is the version of Bitcoin that we fell in love with, and it’s the version of Bitcoin that we think has the ability to change the world for the better, so both of us are devoting our time and effort and resources to promoting Bitcoin cash, because a digital currency can improve the lives of everybody on the planet, a digital store value, not so much.”
