On Saturday, we hinted towards a substantial announcement and it’s time to share the news.
The team at Liven is beyond excited to announce that cryptocurrency legend and Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver is joining our team as an advisory board member, with immediate effect.
Ver, who was born and raised in Silicon Valley but now operates from Tokyo, was the world’s first investor in Bitcoin startups, including bitcoin.com, blockchain.com, z.cash, Ripple, Bitpay, Kraken, and Binance amongst others. As a leading figure in the Bitcoin community, he was also a major contributor to the establishment of the Bitcoin Foundation and continues to support the efforts of the foundation. Ver’s wealth of experience in the industry and drive to revolutionise cryptocurrency adoption through integration is an outstanding resource to our team, and an exciting prospect for the expansion of our network.
Citing the appointment, Ver had this to say:
“The future of cryptocurrencies depends on practical applications for real people and Liven is a prime example of this. I am excited by this opportunity to grow with them and demonstrate the power of cryptocurrencies to the wider world.”
Grace Wong, Co-founder & Chief Evangelist of Liven commented:
“We are simply ecstatic that a genuine global star such as Roger Ver has joined our advisory board. Roger’s belief in us demonstrates further proof that what we are setting out to do with Liven will truly change the way the world engages in its favourite pastimes, starting with dining out and that’s just the beginning. By making it not only more exciting, but also more frequent for our users by rewarding them with a cryptocurrency that can appreciate in value as the ecosystem grows.”

The Liven team is eager for the monumental opportunities that will arise with Ver’s advisory and expertise. We look forward to further revolutionising day-to-day payments through constant evolution of the customer experience, and the seamless integration of cryptocurrencies.
The LivenPay Public Token sale will open on the 28 February 2019.
