THE VINDICTIVE EMPIRE: Roger Ver Denied US Visa to Attend Miami Bitcoin Conference

Bitcoin entrepreneur Roger Ver has been effectively locked out of his native USA after this week being denied a non-immigrant visa for the third time, CoinDesk reports.

Ver, who publicly gave up his US citizenship in 2014, was planning to speak at the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami from 16-18th January.

He tweeted the following message to his 18,800 followers:

 Ver told CoinDesk that despite rejecting his application three times at $160 per application, officials have refused to examine documentation and evidence he provided to support his case.

While it is not possible to appeal against the decision, Ver is permitted to apply again from scratch.
