Episode details

In 2011, if we had all listened to Roger Ver, none of us would ever have to work again.

Roger is an American-born businessman, now a national of St. Kitts, who became an early champion of bitcoin. In August 2011, with bitcoin around $10, he made a bet that bitcoin would outperform gold, silver, the US stock markets and the US dollar by 100 times in the next two years. He updated the bet a year later with bitcoin up only 11%, calling bitcoin "the most important invention in the history of man since the internet".

The rest, as we know too well, is history. He was proved very right.

Today he is less a champion if bitcoin and more a champion of bitcoin cash. In this must-hear interview, he explains why. In addition, we discuss the dark net, founder of the Silk Road, Ross Ulbricht, Roger's own brushes with the US authorities and the future of libertarianism.
