Bitcoin Jesus is back on Twitter and says he likes Dogecoin
In his lifetime, Roger Ver was known for his full support of only two cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin and later Bitcoin Cash. His enthusiasm and evangelism for crypto in his early days earned him the nickname “Bitcoin Jesus”.Now he is emphasizing the advantages of Dogecoin. The revelations came as Ver woke up from social media hibernation on Tuesday to praise Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter. Previously, Bitcoin OG had not tweeted for a year. In a follow-up interview with Bloomberg, Ver revealed that he shared Musk’s opinion on DOGE. “It’s cheaper and more reliable,” says Ver. “If I had to pick three competitors [for the world’s dominant cryptocurrency], they would be DOGE, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash.” The DOGE code and helps make it the ideal currency for transactions – something he and Ver believe Bitcoin was not meant for. . Ver started investing in Bitcoin in 2011 when it was trading for around $1. In 2014, he took over the Bitcoin.com domain and started educating the public about Bitcoin. But a controversial hard fork in 2017 split the network into two blockchains – Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cache, with the latter having low fees and less congestion so they can be used for transactions. Ver, who insisted on a larger block size to increase the number of transactions the network could process, became Bitcoin Cash’s most prominent proponent. He left BTC and pointed Bitcoin.com to Bitcoin Cash. But Ver still maintains the old libertarian ethos that drew him to Bitcoin and uncensored money from the start. Of Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, Ver said, “This will certainly make Twitter more attractive. I’m very, very grateful that Musk was there and called for censorship.” And according to his voice, he will ask Musk to offer advice on Dogecoin. This could even lead him to tweet more than once a year.
