Hello, welcome to episode 39 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell.
Odds are, if you are into Bitcoin, then you know Roger Ver, a.k.a. Bitcoin Jesus. And you possibly are aware that Roger is a huge proponent of increasing Bitcoin's maximum block size as soon as possible. But he's not just talking about it, he's taking action, as you'll hear.
Roger is certainly a doer, and besides all the Bitcoin companies Roger is involved with, he's done things like donate over $150,000 to Ross Ulbrect’s legal defense fund, and offer $250,000 to the charity of Bernie Sanders’ choosing, in exchange for debating Adam Kokesh (for the ultimate socialist vs. voluntaryist debate). Aside from hearing Roger’s take on scaling Bitcoin, we cover a number of subjects, including how much Roger earned from his first Steemit post (it's a lot!). Roger even lets us in on his Bitcoin gut check a few weeks ago, when he sold some of his Bitcoin and bought a prominent privacy-oriented cryptocurrency (listen to find out which one). It was a real treat to have him on the show.
Stay tuned to the very end of the podcast for a blessing from Bitcoin Jesus.
I will be giving away a Bitcoin Keychain to someone who comments on the show notes page for this episode: https://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/post/the-bitcoin-game-39-roger-ver

While much of Bitcoiners' time is spent in the world of digital assets, sometimes it's nice to own a physical representation of the virtual things you care about. For just the price of a cup of coffee or two (at Starbucks), you can own your own Bitcoin Keychain or the newer Bitcoin Fork Pen.
