Roger Ver, a.k.a. “Bitcoin Jesus”, is one of the pioneering, outspoken, and contentious cryptocurrency investors. He has invested in a number of blockchain and cryptocurrency businesses, including Ripple, Blockchain.com, bitcoinstore.com, Kraken, purse.io, and Blockchain.com, but he is best known for running Bitcoin.com from 2015 until 2019.
Ver became known as “Bitcoin Jesus” because of his evangelistic work for the cryptocurrency. The multimillionaire Bitcoin supporter shifted his allegiance to Bitcoin Cash in 2017. Ver is a fairly contentious person due to his libertarian ideas and run-ins with the law.
