Roger Ver is an entrepreneur and Bitcoin investor and evangelist, born in San Jose, California. After becoming interested in libertarianism at an early age, he stood unsuccessfully as a California libertarian candidate. After college, he started a successful business, memorydealers.com, to sell used computer parts online. After he served 10 months in jail for selling firecrackers online, he moved to Japan. He became interested in Bitcoin when the price was very low and became very wealthy as the price and interest in the virtual currency rose. His investments and evangelism have given him the name “Bitcoin Jesus”. He gave up his US citizenship in 2014 and is now a citizen of St. Kitts.

On the day his probation ends, Ver moves to Japan.

I didn’t do anything wrong. I didn’t hurt anybody. I had nothing but happy customers and the U.S. government locked me in a cage because of that. So I want nothing to do with those people. I don’t want to support them. I want them out of my life.
