Roger Ver, known Bitcoin Cash supporter, has stepped down after 3 years of being the CEO of Bitcoin.com, now activating as the Executive Chairman of the site.
Roger Ver was appointed CEO in 2016, and now his replacement will be Stefan Rust.
Stefan Rust will now take the place of CEO at Bitcoin.com, having worked in the cryptocurrency sector since 2012. Rust also founded Exicon, a marketing platform that serves 3,000 software companies.
The move was not due to any conflicts between the higher-ups of the company. The decision was made in friendly terms, with Rust expressing his enthusiasm for the future developments that are in store for the website.
“I’m hugely excited to take on the role of CEO working alongside Roger. Together we can now turbocharge the awesome team and great brand that is Bitcoin.com,” said Rust.
“We will play an integral part in making money work for everybody as society undergoes such an enormous and pivotal change. It’s going to be a wild ride, so don’t miss it,” stated the new CEO.
Roger Ver will still be a major contributor to Bitcoin.com, taking on the important role of Executive chairman. Ver was the one responsible for turning Bitcoin.com into a pro-Bitcoin Cash media outlet which is now recognized by the entire crypto community.
Another big development for Bitcoin.com has also been recently announced. The company intends to launch a crypto exchange called Exchange.Bitcoin.com in September. The exchange will support 50 trading pairs, with most of the coins being traded against Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), and Tether (USDT).
Back in June, they released Local.bitcoin.com, peer- to –peer marketplace for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) buying and selling. The platform has 22,000 users registered so far.
Even through Ver has changed his status of CEO, he will still continue to be a major advocate for the Bitcoin Cash cause and promote its adoption.
