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.

Bitcoin.com launch

Product Release

Ver announces the launch of Bitcoin.com, a collaborative platform to increase digital currency awareness. Community members can add posts, and the most upvoted post will win $1000 worth of Bitcoin. The site has a system where companies make public bids to have their ads displayed. Ver:

There has been a lot of suppression of ideas happening on other Bitcoin forums, and clearly lots of people are upset by this. It seemed like the perfect time to launch forum.bitcoin.com to give people a place where dissenting ideas are not suppressed.
