Dear awesome community,
WELCOME BACK to Cryptonites Season 2 Finale, the no BS Blockchain channel covering bitcoin, cryptocurrency and everything you need to know around the world of FinTech. In this Season 2 finale, we’ll be taking you behind the scenes of CC Forum in London, interviewing the biggest names in the game.
We are proud to present you with another timeless interview with one of the biggest movers and early adopters of cryptocurrencies: Roger Ver, founder of Bitcoin cash. Roger heard about Bitcoin for the first time in 2011, when the price was still under one U.S. Dollar each. He knew at that point Bitcoin was one of the most important inventions in the history of humankind.
Roger Ver’s company Memorydealers became the first established business in the world to start accepting Bitcoin for payments well before bitcoin cash and he went on to become the first person in the world to start investing in Bitcoin startups. He nearly single-handedly funded the entire first generation of Bitcoin and Blockchain businesses including Bitcoin.com, Blockchain.com, Bitpay.com, Kraken.com, purse.io, and more.
As you will see from this interview, Roger ver is both an entrepreneur and a visionary, passionate about the idea that everyone should have the power to enjoy their own cryptocurrency for their own purposes.
For Roger, Bitcoin is essentially about free speech and free transactions and he’s dedicated to solving problems in the world through blockchain technology and moving towards a world of financial inclusion that is censorship-free. Catch Roger’s reaction to the debate with Nouriel Roubini. Roger Ver vs Nouriel Roubini was one of the most anticipated debates at the cc forum in London this year.
