#1 How Roger Ver Bitcoin Jesus Got Started in the Crypto Space

Kiana, who spent living 8 years in Japan, begins her fun-filled interview by conversing with Roger in Japanese, as he has been staying in Japan for years now. They reminisce about how they fell into crypto, and specifically, Bitcoin. According to Roger, he loves reading economics and sci-fi books, and he has always been curious about the future’s cybercash. Which is why when February 2011 came, he chose to become involved and learn more about the technicalities and later on invested in numerous cryptocurrency startups, including

Because Roger is famous for supporting many cryptocurrency-related businesses, Kina could not help but ask, how does Roger choose among thousands of companies to invest in? Per Roger, it is always a significant risk and a leap of faith. What he does is three things: to focus on the team behind the company, look at their goals, and study the product or service they want to offer to the market.

#3. Bitcoin Cash vs. Bitcoin
Roger Ver Bitcoin Cash views are not secret as he is vocal he is about leaving Bitcoin behind and moving his resources to Bitcoin Cash. To prove his point, Roger showed Kiana by transferring her 100 Bitcoin Cash real-time. Bitcoin Cash is a safer bet, and he believes that he was reminded of the main reasons why he fell in love with crypto in the first place.

#4. Thoughts About and Facebook Libra

Kiana asks about the new changes in, recently they declared Stefan Rust as the new CEO and Roger stepped up as the new executive chairman. The company is now expanding into peer-to-peer electronic cash transactions. Their website offers information and other tools about Bitcoin Cash and BTC. Their services involve a crypto wallet, a crypto exchange, and a local cryptocurrency marketplace with no KYC. Kiana also inquires about Roger’s thoughts about Facebook’s Libra. Roger admits that he invested in Libra because it has the opportunity to be the world’s largest cryptocurrency, and he wants to have a voice or power if or when that happens.

#5. Governments & Being An American Citizen
Finally, Kiana inquires about Roger renouncing his American citizenship. He says that he believes that governments should not have that high power over people and people should be in charge of their own money. Roger thinks that the whole idea of one group of people bossing others around is unfair. He is firm in his belief that government intervention hinders economic growth, and it kills the potential of worldwide success and countries working with each other. That’s why he will stick to helping crypto innovators fight for decentralization.
