Biography of Roger Ver
Roger Ver has been a long time proponent of voluntaryism, the idea that all human interactions should be by mutual consent, or not at all. He doesn't make exceptions for people wearing uniforms and working in buildings with flags in front. He is most well know for his work promoting Bitcoin. In 2011, his company, Memorydealers.com , became the first mainstream company to start accepting bitcoin as payment. He then went on to create Bitcoinstore.com, the first website in the world to accept bitcoin as payment for hundreds of thousands of items, and was the impetus for the future wave of merchant adoption. He also became the first person in the entire world to start investing in Bitcoin startups. Nearly singlehandedly, he funded the seed rounds for the entire first generation of Bitcoin businesses.
Some other notable actions were:His $10,000 bitcoin bet: His resulting $1M USD donation to the Foundation For Economic Education, fee.org His $160,000 donation to the defense of Ross Ulbricht, creator of the Silk Road FreeRoss.org His paying over $100,000 for national radio ads on more than a hundred stations across the USA advertising Bitcoin from 2011 to 2014 on freetalklive.com Multiple billboards advertising bitcoin in Silicon Valley, including the infamous, Honey Badger of Money design. Giving away thousands of bitcoins all over the world, to anyone who would listen. In his earlier life, he was most influenced by the works of Murray Rothbard, but was also inspired by the likes of Fredric Bastiat, Henry Hazlitt, Leonard Read, Frederick Hayek, Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, David Friedman, and many others in the Austrian school of economic thought. More information on these types of ideas can be found at www.fee.org and www.mises.org More recently he has been inspired by the works of Larken Rose, and Michael Huemer on philosophy regarding the legitimacy of government's right to exist at all.
He highly recommends both of their books:The Most Dangerous Superstition The Problem of Political Authority
