He has been a prominent supporter of bitcoin adoption and saw bitcoin as a means to promote economic freedom.
He now promotes Bitcoin Cash, a hard fork of the cryptocurrency created with the intent to fix issues such as high fees and long transaction confirmation times.
Bitcoin time ever, anyone can send or receive any amount of money with anyone else, anywhere on the planet, conveniently and without restriction.
It's the dawn of a better, more free world.

The starting price of BTC — How much bitcoin cost at the beginning.
Looking at the schedule of the BTC-USD exchange rate, it is hard to believe that 8 years ago one bitcoin did not cost a one cents. Let’s start from the beginning. In 2008, One document describing the crypto currency appeared in the Internet, published by Satoshi Nakamoto. In the same year, press releases were published and a domain was registered where the official site of the bitcoin.org payment system was located. In January 2009, the bitcoin network started work with the release of the first bit-client and the creation of the first unit, for which a reward of 50 bitcoins was received.
Initially, the degree of demand for crypto-coin was practically zero. By the end of 2009, the rate
of bitcoins was at the level of 700–1600 bitcoins per 1 US dollar. For example, on October 5, 2009 New Liberty Standard set a rate of 1 dollar for 1.309 BTC, that is, for more than 1000 bitcoins they gave only $ 1.
On 22 May 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made the first real-world transaction by buying two pizzas in Jacksonville, Florida for 10,000 BTC. source wikipedia.org
