In 1999 Roger began his career by founding MemoryDealers.com at the age of nineteen while still attending college. Under his leadership the company quickly grew to become a market leader, employing dozens of people across the world and generating millions of dollars in revenue.

In 2005 Roger saw an opportunity in the market for fibre optic transceivers used in networking subsystems, so he founded Agilestar.com. Agilestar went on to become a world leader in optical transceivers used by fortune 100 companies around the world.

In 2011 Roger heard about Bitcoin for the first time. The price was still under one U.S. Dollar each, but he already knew that it was one of the most important inventions in the history of humankind.

His company Memorydealers became the first established business in the world to start accepting Bitcoin for payments. Roger then went on to become the first person in the world to start investing in Bitcoin startups. He nearly single handedly funded the entire first generation of Bitcoin and Blockchain businesses including Bitcoin.com, Blockchain.com, Bitpay.com, Kraken.com, purse.io, and many many more. Those businesses have gone on to raise hundreds of millions of additional funding, and serve tens of millions of customers around the world. Subsequent investors in the companies that Roger helped provide the seed funding for have been people such as Sir Richard Branson, Virgin, Google Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Founders Fund, and many more. Roger has devoted his full time attention to Bitcoin and blockchains ever since.

Crypto entrepreneur and Bitcoin.com founder, Roger Ver, has recently unveiled the publication of a 304-page book titled "Hijacking Bitcoin: The Hidden History of BTC," offering a fresh viewpoint that diverges from commonly accepted historical accounts. This book provides readers with an alternate perspective, challenging the traditional narratives surrounding Bitcoin's evolution and history.

Exploring Bitcoin's History Through Roger Ver's Eyes

Roger Ver has revealed the release of a book he co-authored with Steve Patterson, featuring insights from esteemed economist Jeffrey Tucker. Currently available for pre-order on Amazon, the book is set to be officially released on April 4, 2024. Its summary points out that Bitcoin's original promise "was broken after a small group of insiders took over the project and fundamentally changed Bitcoin's design."

The book discusses various occurrences that happened over the years. It includes subjects like the basics of Bitcoin, debates like the store of value and medium of exchange argument, block sizes, censorship, and the Lightning Network. In the book, Ver said he invested more than thirteen years championing Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies as the next evolution in financial systems, convinced of their capacity to forge a much freer and wealthier society.

He regards cryptocurrencies as some of the most pivotal innovations in history. During this period, Ver said he has been a fervent supporter of the sector, backing startups, fostering business growth, and acting as a vocal advocate, while also observing a BTC price increase of over 6,500,000%. "Yet, this book is not a love story, and I wish it did not have to be written," Ver explains in the first chapter. "The project I got involved with in 2011 has been hijacked and changed for the worse."
