Dogecoin is “significantly better” than BTC, says Roger Ver2 min read
Roger Ver, an early BTC investor, stated in a recent interview with Bloomberg that memecoin Dogecoin (DOGE) has advantages over the largest cryptocurrency on the market.
He even claimed that DOGE is “significantly better” than BTC. Furthermore, the founder of BTC.com further said that he is a fan of memecoin due to the fast transactions and low fees:
“Dogecoin is significantly better, cheaper and more reliable. If I had to pick three competitors for the world’s dominant cryptocurrency, they would be Doge, Litecoin and BTC Cash.”
43-year-old American Roger Ver is often called “BTC Jesus” by investors and enthusiasts. That’s because he was one of the first investors and promoters of the main digital assets.
Ver is among the most recognized names in the industry and started investing in BTC in early 2011. Back then, the digital currency was trading for around $1.
He later allocated millions of dollars to new digital asset protocols such as XRP and Blockchain.com itself.
While he was once a strong supporter of BTC, he also went on to champion Bitcoin Cash (BCH), the altcoin resulting from the fork of the BTC network following a dispute over block size.
To Ver, Bitcoin Cash represents the true vision of BTC creator Satoshi Nakamoto. Meanwhile, BTC would have, according to him, deviated from its original purpose.
However, despite defending the cryptocurrency, he is not “all in” on BCH:
“I am definitely still a whale of cryptocurrencies, I have always had a wide varied basket of cryptocurrencies. I was never a BTC or Bitcoin Cash maximalist.”
And apparently Dogecoin is also sharing BTC Jesus’ heart.
Roger Ver supports the purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk
Also during the interview, Ver told Bloomberg that he supports billionaire Elon Musk’s decision to buy Twitter.
According reported by CriptoFácil, Musk made a $44 billion bid for the social media platform. Shortly after the purchase was announced, the price of the cryptocurrency jumped almost 35% in a few hours.
For Ver, the purchase of Twitter by the CEO of Tesla will be beneficial for the social network. This is because it can end “censorship” on the platform.
“It will certainly make Twitter more attractive,” Ver said. “I’m really, really grateful that Musk is out there denouncing the censorship.”
