Proponents in the cryptocurrency space have made it a point to push for the mainstream adoption of digital assets. One such proponent is Bitcoin.com’s Chief Executive Officer Roger Ver. In a recent podcast, Ver touched upon the reasons why Bitcoin Cash [BCH] was better than the current version of Bitcoin [BTC], while at the same time elucidated on the obstacles in the industry.

The BCH bull stated that,

“The key to being an investor is to invest in a good product before anyone else and that is what I did with Bitcoin all those years back. I got into Bitcoin because I knew that it would be useful in the future while at the same time bringing financial freedom to the entire world. Those are the same features that Bitcoin Cash has right now and many are saying that BCash is a scam and all that, to them I say that name calling is not an argument.”

Ver further spoke about the government clamp on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, claiming that the lockdown that regulatory bodies have over user’s money is actually a ‘hindrance to our progress as a species.’

According to Roger Ver, Bitcoin is a tool to separate the control of money from the state. He was also asked whether anyone could stop Bitcoin and its effects, to which Ver had his own suggestions. He said that if anyone wanted to hinder the world’s largest cryptocurrency, then the best way is to make it too expensive or too complicated to use. In his words,

“Becoming too expensive or too complicated to use is what has happened to the current version of BTC and is something that BCash is trying to move far from. I want to say kudos to the people who hijacked the original BTC product and the thing is a vast majority of the people do not realize what actually happened.”

Ver was in the news recently after he attacked the BTC camp, stating that it is toxic and full of censorship, trolling behaviour.
