- Bitcoin.com CEO wrote a letter to Ross Ulbricht’s prison.
- He believes that Ross is a person that plays a crucial role in the popularisation of Bitcoin.
The head of Bitcoin.com and an ardent proponent of Bitcoin Cash Roger Ver also sometimes known as Bitcoin Jesus, reaffirmed his support for Ross Ulbricht, the man detained for organizing Self Road. Recently, Ver sent a letter to Arizona prison where Ulbricht serves his sentence. While the content of the email is not disclosed, Ver called on his Twitter followers to do the same an send a letter to Ulbricht. He also attached the link to the website to advocate for his release.
“I sent a letter to Ross Ulbricht, and you should too. freeross.org #FreeRoss #Silkroad”
The case of Ross Ulbricht triggered a lot of debates where free market supporters believe that he should be released, while their opponents point out that some of the goods that were sold via his marketplace were illegal.
Craig S Wright has posed himself against Ver both in Bitcoin Cash fork debate and on Ross Ulbricht case.
“I do not like Wikileaks, and I have never been a fan of Assange’s methods. More importantly, I am strongly opposed to criminal markets and bucket shops. Ross Ulbricht and others like him are criminals. They are not freedom fighters, they are not libertarians. They simply are predators, and they are all that Bitcoin was designed to make far more difficult,” he wrote in his blog.
However, many Bitcoiners believe that Ulbricht is the person who made the digital currency popular, basically, paved the way to its wider adoption. He created a platform, where people could actually use it to buy things.
