Bitcoin Investor Roger Ver Reveals Plans For New Libertarian Country

1 a

MemoryDealers.com CEO and Bitcoin investor Roger Ver announced at the Nexus Conference, an event hosted by cryptocurrency platform Nexus Earth, a project to create a libertarian nation. The project called Free Society, believes that previous attempts at creating a libertarian society, Liberland or potential seasteading, have been unsuccessful and “[…] to really gain sovereignty, the most efficient way is to negotiate with an existing government.”

The new nation would contain a constitution once negotiations are complete and would not allow nuclear weapons or smuggling into neighboring countries.

Ver claimed to have already raised $100 million, mostly from early adopters of Bitcoin and Ethereum, with a goal of obtaining at least $500 million to be able to better negotiate with an existing government.

The investor has been called “Bitcoin Jesus” because of his investing in many Bitcoin related businesses, his multi-millionaire status through the crypto-currency and constant advocacy for Bitcoin.

Since joining the Libertarian Party in 2016 (after discovering Gary Johnson as a disaffected Bernie Sanders supporter), Luke Henderson has been active in the liberty movement through journalism, and political activism. At the beginning of 2017, Luke had his first piece of writing published by Being Libertarian and quickly became a contributor to the libertarian news site, The Libertarian Vindicator. Through the Vindicator, Luke discovered his passion for addressing critics of the philosophy and bringing together different factions of liberty lovers which compelled him to become an editor for The Libertarian Coalition, a forum dedicated to an open-minded discussion of libertarian ideas from all walks. After many guest contributions to Being Libertarian, Luke was asked to join the website as a contributor, where he writes his column Scoring For Liberty, which discusses sports, politics, and economics from a libertarian lens, and his Educator series that seeks to strengthen libertarian’s understanding of educational techniques and policy to better arguments against public education. Luke is one of the District 1 Executive Committeemen for the Missouri Libertarian party, and the founder of the Missouri Chapter of the Libertarian Positivity Caucus. Outside of politics, Luke is a paraprofessional for the Special School District of St. Louis, a musician, composer, and a loving husband and father.
