‘Bitcoin Jesus’ Returns to Twitter, Favors DOGE Over BTC
  • Roger Ver said DOGE is better, cheaper, and more reliable [than Bitcoin].
  • He praised Elon Musk for purchasing Twitter in the interview.
  • Ver said: “I was never a Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash maximalist.”

Roger Ver, a pioneer investor, and Bitcoin supporter, has returned to posting in Twitter after a year. He also showed his support for Dogecoin in an interview. His enthusiasm and all-out support for Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash have earned him the alias ‘Bitcoin Jesus’.

According to an interview with Bloomberg, Ver said he preferred Dogecoin over Bitcoin for payments. He emphasized that he’s a fan of the memecoin because of its fast transaction times and low fees:

“Dogecoin is significantly better, it’s cheaper and more reliable [than Bitcoin]. If I had to pick three contenders for the world’s dominant cryptocurrency, they would be Doge, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash.”

In the interview, Ver shared his support for Tesla CEO and Dogecoin supporter Elon Musk for his $44 billion Twitter purchase. He said “It’ll certainly make Twitter more attractive. I am really, really grateful that Musk is out there calling out censorship.”

Recently, Ver spends his time advocating Bitcoin Cash (BCH), even though he was a promoter of Bitcoin over the years. Bitcoin Cash is the altcoin that is a fork of Bitcoin created in 2017.

Last March, Ver’s YouTube channel posted a video showing him and his entourage onboarding retail merchants and taxi drivers how easy it is to pay using Bitcoin Cash in Saint-Martin.

He said that Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto’s true vision is Bitcoin Cash. Although, Ver claims he isn’t all in on Bitcoin Cash regardless of all his endorsement for the crypto. “I’ve always had a wide assorted basket in cryptocurrency. I was never a Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash maximalist,” Ver claimed.
