Roger Ver returns to Twitter, saying he now likes Dogecoin after a year of silence, sharing his opinion on the cryptocurrency and on the recent events with Twitter and Elon Musk so let’s read more today in our Bitcoin Cash news.
Roger Ver has been known for his support of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash but his enthusiasm for crypto in its earlier days earned him the nickname “Bitcoin Jesus.” However now, he is praising Dogecoin. The revelation came when Roger Ver returns to social media and started praising Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter while before that, he hadn’t tweeted for a year. In an interview with Bloomberg, Ver revealed that he shared Musk’s appreciation of DOGE:
“It’s cheaper and more reliable. If I had to pick three contenders [for the world’s dominant cryptocurrency], they would be DOGE, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash.”

Musk was tweeting about DOGE For years and has gone so far as to work behind the scenes with the developers to tweak DOGE’s code and to make it an ideal currency for transactions which is something he and Ver believe BTC is not designed for. Ver started investing in BTC in 2011 when it was trading at $1 and in 2014 he took possession of the Bitcoin.com domain and started using it to educate the public about BTC. The contentious hard fork in 2017 saw the network fork into two blockchains like Bitcoin and bitcoin Cash and the latter of which has low fees and lower congestion so that it can be used for transactions so Ver who had pushed for larger block sizes to increase the number of transactions the network can process which became the most prominent supporter of BCH.
Ver still retains that old libertarian ethos that dews him into BTC in the first place and now speaking of Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, Ver said:
“It’ll certainly make Twitter more attractive. I am really, really grateful that Musk is out there calling out censorship.”
Ver is in favor of Musk enabling Dogecoin Tips and that could even get him tweeting more than once a year. Also as recently reported, Dogecoin got down by 8% and shed some of the price gains that it was on Monday after Elon Musk purchased Twitter. Doge dumps gains by 9% after the hype of Musk’s Twitter purchase fades away. Dogecoin had a banner day yesterday as the leading meme coin popped in value on the news that Elon Musk, Tesla CEO will acquire Twitter.
