Bitcoin Cash advocate Roger Ver looks into opening a BCH focused crypto exchange

In an exclusive interview with Bloomberg in Malta, Bitcoin Cash advocate Roger Ver said that he is considering launching a BCH focused cryptocurrency exchange.

Roger Ver, a cryptocurrency industry veteran, revealed that his company,, is looking into joining the cryptocurrency exchange sector, launching a BCH-focused platform.

In the interview, Ver noted that he has been mulling over finding a partner to help come up with the platform. He also said that even if he was not able to find one, he may consider building it internally with the team. Speaking about his early-stage plans, Ver explained:

If we build it ourselves, we can do it really, really cheap, and we get exactly what we want…But we don’t have the security of a battle-tested exchange that’s been around for a while.

Tapping traffic on

Roger Ver expects to tap the already running traffic on, a crypto focused webpage that also provides wallet solutions. He said that the exchange ‘will be posted on so we’ll have thousands or tens of thousands of new users every single day’.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to be the base currency

Speaking more about the potential new venture, the CEO went on to say that the base cryptocurrency for the new platform will be Bitcoin Cash (BCH). This is to be expected, considering that Roger Ver has been a stern supporter of BCH and has remained very bullish about it in contrast to Bitcoin (BTC).

Speaking with CNBC Fast Money in August, Roger Ver claimed that Bitcoin Cash would eventually oust ‘Bitcoin Core’ as the top leading commerce digital asset, further adding that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is ‘the best from an investment standpoint’.

A boost for BCH?

Launching a cryptocurrency exchange with Bitcoin Cash as the base crypto is definitely a good move when it comes to boosting the price of Bitcoin Cash (BCH). This was the case when the StellarX exchange launched for Stellar Lumens (XLM). If the exchange goes live, it means that the adoption of BCH may grow considerably.
