In appreciation of Roger Ver

Sat Sep 23, 2017 2:00 pm

Recently, I had the opportunity to see Roger Ver speak live at the Shape the Future conference in Hong Kong. I wasn't surprised by Roger's comments on BCC's larger block sizes or it's faster confirmation speeds or his critique of the core team. I had watched enough interviews of him to know these views already. I was impressed by the way Roger treats people.

A lot of big name speakers at the event gave their speeches and listened to the speeches of other famous people then immediately left the conference area, but Roger stayed back. And he listened. It' didn't matter if the content was really basic or that the speakers weren't as famous in the community, Roger paid attention to every single one of them. This speaks volume about his character and his respect for others.

Then there were his fans. Roger made time for each and every one of them. It didn't matter if it was a 10 minute break or a 2 hour lunch, Roger patiently spoke to each person who wanted to talk to him. He spoke to everyone as an equal, unlike many other successful early bitcoin adopters who give off an arrogant attitude. Even when I spoke to him one on one, you could see how charismatic, knowledgeable and friendly he was.

So here's to Roger Ver, the man who dedicated 8 years of his life to bitcoin. I hope you achieve your goal of a libertarian county, I'm definitely supporting you with your vision.

Wow, thank you for such a kind post.
I'm not really sure what to say, but for me Bitcoin is about enabling the entire world to be able to cooperate better with each other. Part of that means taking the time to talk with people and understand that they are people just like me with wants and desires in their own lives.

Last year at Anarchapulco Adam Williams gave me this card with a meditation exercise on it.
It really had a big impact on me. It might seem silly at first, but if you do it, I think it will change the way you feel about other people. I also highly recommend people make plans to attend Anarchapulco next year.
It is an amazing event.

Great post! Roger has been assaulted by trolls ever since Core and Blockstream's vision for the future of Bitcoin diverged from the original whitepaper and it has only gotten worse. I always dread clicking on any tweet Roger makes because the vitriol that inevitably follows is absolutely surreal. I really don't know how you manage to deal with it, man.

Jeffrey Tucker and Roger at the same event in February! I totally wish I could go to that. :) Someday I'll scrape together the cash and vacation days to do it. Life's just a little too busy for me right now.

If you scrape together the vacation days, we will scrape together the cash for you to come.
You have been a great part of the Bitcoin.com community and we would love to see you there!
