Roger Ver to discuss global Bitcoin Cash adoption at upcoming CoinGeek Conference
At the inaugural CoinGeek.com Conference, which will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong on May 18, many of the brightest and most dedicated minds behind cryptocurrency will be present to provide their take on how Bitcoin Cash (BCH) will revolutionize currency. One of the hottest topics today is how to propel adoption of the digital currency in both the commerce and government arenas, and Roger Ver will be on hand to provide his insight into how the industry is advancing.
Following the August 2017 hard fork and the subsequent birth of Bitcoin BCH, the digital currency quickly made its way to become the fourth largest in terms of market cap. Since then, it has continued to gain acceptance as a viable payment alternative and is accepted by thousands of retailers around the world. Despite the growth, there is always room for improvement, and Ver is prepared to explain what steps need to be taken to keep the momentum going.
Ver is a leading proponent of the cryptocurrency movement. He began investing in cryptocurrencies in 2011 and has now invested more than $1 million into a number of cryptocurrency-related startups. Some of these are Ripple, Kraken, Bitpay and Blockchain.info. Ver is also the CEO of Bitcoin.com, a leading website for anything related to cryptocurrencies.
As early as 2012, Ver has been organizing conferences to discuss cryptocurrencies in California. He is one of five Bitcoin Foundation founders, and anticipates a time when cryptocurrency rivals major fiat. He is certain that we are now living in a time when governments are going ‘cashless’ and argues that tangible fiat only accounts for a small portion of any country’s economic structure. As more merchants turn toward cryptocurrency acceptance, this supply of physical currency should only diminish.
Ver is a well-known lobbyist for cryptocurrencies. He has spoken with several media outlets around the world on the topic, including Fox Business, Russia Today, the Keiser Report and Bloomberg TV. He is also the current chairman of the Cryptocurrency Advisory Board for MGT Capital Investments, which is led by John McAfee.
In addition to Ver, the upcoming CoinGeek.com conference will see participation by several of his peers. Ryan X. Charles, co-founder and CEO of Yours.org, will be on hand to discuss how to bring BCH to the mainstream, and SBI’s Chief Strategy Officer Jerry Chan will be providing a breakdown of the advances from FinTech 1.5 to FinTech 2.0. Additionally, Mike Kayamori, CEO of Quione, will be discussing the climate of commercial cryptocurrency adoption in Japan.
