Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver announced his intention to launch his own cryptocurrency exchange. To this end, he can either acquire an already existing platform or find a partner to create a new product.
Known as one of the earliest investors in Bitcoin space, Roger Ver is currently one of the main popularizers of Bitcoin Cash altcoin, who broke away from the main Bitcoin network in August 2017 as a result of a hard fork.
Bitcoin Cash ranks fourth in terms of capitalization in the CoinMarketCap rating and is traded on most popular exchanges. Nevertheless, the coin cannot boast of great popularity, and now Roger Ver plans to launch his own platform, where Bitcoin Cash will become the main currency.
“If we build it ourselves, we can do it really, really cheap, and we get exactly what we want,” he said of the firm’s early-stage plans. “But we don’t have the security of a battle-tested exchange that’s been around for a while.” – the statement is published on Bloomberg.
Roger Ver added that the exchange will be launched on Bitcoin.com, so that it will have “tens of thousands of new users” every day.
Earlier this year Bitcoin.com was heavily criticized for starting to actively promote Bitcoin Cash, positioning it as the “original” Bitcoin and in fact misleading new users.
At some point, because of this, a lawsuit was almost filed against Roger Ver, while CoinMarketCap removed the link to Bitcoin.com from the first cryptocurrency page.
