When you describe your product as the “most important invention in the history of the world since the Internet”, you undoubtedly put a lot of pressure on your shoulders to back up those claims. That’s how Roger Ver, the man people call as the “Bitcoin Jesus”, describes Bitcoin.
Bitcoin has been touted in many different ways using many different words. Whether it’s “ground-breaking”, “revolutionary” or “the future of digital currency”, anybody who understands the concept of Bitcoin has an opinion about it, including Ver himself.
“Bitcoin is going to change absolutely everything,” Ver told CalvinAyre.com correspondent Becky Liggero.
“It’s the first time in the entire history of the world in which anybody anywhere in the planet with Internet, can send and receive money with anyone else and its impossible for any third party to interject themselves into that transaction.”
Ver continues on to explain the seemingly endless benefits of Bitcoin to Liggero, including its strength of security, ease of access, and its standing as a peer-to-peer network that according to Ver, makes it hard for anybody to stop Bitcoin, including the US government.
“The only way to stop Bitcoin is to shut down the entire Internet in the entire planet, and I don’t think that’s a realistic possibility at this point.”
