Bitcoin Roger Ver

Largest ever Bitcoin donation

30 Nov, 2013

Ver donates 1000BTC (almost $1 million) to the Foundation for Electronic Education after losing a bet he made on the value of Bitcoin:

A  little over two years ago I made a bet for $10,000 that bitcoin would outperform gold, silver, the US stock market and the US dollar by more than one hundred times over the next two years…I’m here today to say that I was wrong,  In reality it took about two years and two months for bitcoin to outperform everything else by more than a hundred times. Over that time, gold and silver are down, the stock market is up about 45 per cent, but Bitcoin is up more than 15,000 per cent,  or more than three hundred times everything else.
