According to recent reports, MGT Capital Investments, Inc. has decided to appoint Roger Ver, a popular member of the bitcoin community, as the Chairman of their Cryptocurrency Advisory Board.
The appointment, which is effective immediately, is meant to ensure that the investment company keeps a close eye on the potential of digital currencies, while also facilitating the release of new products for their customers.
In a recent press statement, John McAfee, the future CEO of MGT Capital, has stated: Roger and I both understand that cryptocurrencies are here to stay and that the greatest risk to cryptocurrency users is the uneven security surrounding these currencies. Even the most experienced Bitcoin user, for example, risks financial loss if a clever hacker targets them (…) If these types of cyber threats are not remedied, the world risks financial chaos as cryptocurrencies are widely adopted”
At this moment in time, MGT Capital Investments, Inc. is trying to acquire a large portfolio of cyber security businesses, only to later address cyber security threats and offer people potent protection software against them.
For those that do not know, Roger Ver is one of the earliest Bitcoin investors, having helped seed numerous bitcoin-related businesses. In fact, his reputation has earned him the nickname of Bitcoin Jesus.
