Bitcoin Unlimited: Special Interview with Roger Ver

In this bonus episode of Neocash Radio, Bitcoin angel investor & Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver talks with JJ, Darren, and Randy about Bitcoin Unlimited, a new initiative that lets Bitcoin miners dictate the block size they want to use. Could this be an end to the BTC block size debate? Will this require a hard fork? Could that create two different Bitcoin chains like what happened with Ethereum? What does Roger plan to do if Bitcoin doesn’t scale and loses its value? We also discuss censorship on Reddit’s r/bitcoin channel, the Lightning Network, SegWit, and more!
