Roger Ver, Bitcoin Cash advocate, is planning to launch his own crypto exchange

The owner of Bitcoin.com hinted at that possibility in Malta

The controversial Bitcoin Cash supporter Roger Ver, has been toying with the idea of launching his own cryptocurrency exchange. Or buy it. This is according to an interview he would held in Malta with news outlet Bloomberg, in which he spoke about finding a partner for developing the platform, or even build one internally.

According to the interview, he believes that costs could be reduced significantly if built by themselves, and would get “exactly what we want”. However, the lack of security for a reliable, “battle-tested exchange” that has been in the field for a while has refrained them from trying.

Bitcoin Cash as the base-currency for the exchange

Roger Ver is known to be a former Bitcoin (BTC) supporter and investor, but according to him, the internal issues with the core developers and the constant delays of a solution for the infamous scalability problem of the coin created by Satoshi Nakamoto, among other reasons, have convinced him to look away from the original project and turn his attention to its most popular fork: Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

The so called Bitcoin Jesus – or Bitcoin Judas, depending on the reader’s point of view – also revealed that in the event of developing the platform, or purchasing an already-built one, he would host it at his website Bitcoin.com, which already provides various services such as a BCH mining pool, BCH and BTC wallets, news, dev tools, and such. The reason would be to take advantage of the site’s traffic, so to have “thousands or tens of thousands of new users every single day.” And as one would expect of him, the exchange would be using Bitcoin Cash as its base currency.

Despite his intention to boost BCH’s popularity through this mean, it is yet to be seen whether users will be happy having a cryptocurrency exchange with a base coin that is rarely seen in any other crypto trading platforms.
