25 July, 2019 | AtoZ Markets – It is worth mentioning that this is not the first incident when Roger Ver gets denied a visa to visit other countries. “Bitcoin Jesus” who publicly gave up his US citizenship in 2014, was denied USA non-immigrant visa in 2015. Thus, Ver could not attend the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami from 16-18th January.
Roger Ver Denied A Visa to Australia and the USA
Back then, it was the third time when the Bitcoin investor received a negative response from the US Embassy. Against the background of the event, the “Bitcoin Jesus” tweeted the following message to his 18,800 followers:
During one of his interviews that time, Ver stated, that embassy rejected his application three times at $160 per application. Officials have refused to examine documentation and evidence he provided to support his case. Ver was permitted to apply again from scratch.
Ver left the United States nearly nine years ago. It was after serving a 10-month prison sentence and a three-year trial period for selling agricultural firecrackers online.
Since then, the crypto investor has lived mainly in Japan and has not visited the USA for almost a year
Is It A Bad Year for Roger Ver?
The “Bitcoin Jesus”, with whom Atoz Markets has recently held an interview. He is also known for his recent conflict with the notoriously famous self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto Craig Wright. Wright sued Ver in May 2019, for calling him a fraud and a liar in a YouTube video.
According to the media, Craig Wright sued the “Bitcoin Jesus.” It is because of the video that he posted on the official Bitcoin.com channel on YouTube on 15 April.
In a video entitled as “Special Report to Craig Wright,” Ver called Wright a liar and a fraud and offered to sue him again.
Thus, Wright’s lawyers sent a warning to Ver and Bitcoin.com, if “Bitcoin Jesus” did not agree to apologize publicly for his accusations against Wright, a lawsuit would follow.
