Ripple CTO David Schwartz Comments on Roger Ver’s Arrest

David Schwartz Roger Ver

Ripple Chief Technology Officer David Schwartz has commented on the recent arrest of Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver in Spain. He talked about Ver’s personality and the possible reasons for his actions, as well as his latest contact with a ‘Bitcoin OG’ in an open release.

Among others who reflected on Ver, Schwartz and other authors of his company stated that Roger Ver was one of the nicest and most genuine people that they had ever encountered and that his behavior was a result of his strong belief in the rightness of his moral principles. However, he did admit that people have different views of Ver’s impact, with some seeing him in a positive way and others in a negative way.

The XRPL creator made a suggestion that Roger Ver might escape the US to preserve his moral compass in the face of significant tax issues.

I believe the first time we started to have issues with the US government was a major factor. — On May 1, 2024, David “JoelKatz” Schwartz tweeted as @JoelKatz.

Schwartz suggested that ideological differences are the cause of the accusations against Ver, which supports the notion that Roger Ver has been hounded for his views before. In particular, he suggested that Ver’s early involvement in Ripple may have been a factor in the company’s early conflicts with the US authorities.

In a recent news release, the U.S. Department of Justice informed the public that Ver, also known as the “Bitcoin Jesus,” was arrested in Spain. Roger Ver is accused of evading taxes and mail fraud. Indictment has it that the federal government lost at least $48 million due to Ver’s purported involvement in a scheme that led to defraud of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
