John McAfee Says He Will Reveal Who Satoshi Nakamoto Is

According to a Bloomberg report, notorious crypto enthusiast and antivirus software maker, John McAfee, claims to have spoken with Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. Further, he says he will reveal this person’s identity.

John McAfee Claims to Know Satoshi Nakamoto

When this reveal will be, however, remains unclear, despite McAfee initially telling Bloomberg he would expose Nakamoto “within a week.” McAfee said yesterday that the controversy his announcement would bring could damage his efforts to fight extradition to the US. Saying in a Twitter post:

“Releasing the identity of Satoshi at this time could influence the trial and risk my extradition […] I cannot risk that. I’ll wait.”

But in speaking to Bloomberg, McAfee said the following:

“I’ve spoken with him, and he is not a happy camper about my attempt to out him.”

However, it remains skeptical whether his claim is true—so many others have attempted to track down the Bitcoin pioneer and failed.

Satoshi Nakamoto

Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonym given to the person or people who created Bitcoin and spawned an entire currency. There have been multiple theories as to who the creator of the digital coin is, with each one causing hot debate. No one who has come forward with a suggestion has ever been able to prove it and theories are often quickly discredited. The mystery has gone so far as to suggest Tesla CEO Elon Musk is Satoshi Nakamoto—something he himself quickly denied.

Other claimants include Bitcoin SV founder Craig Wright and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin.

All we know is if McAfee’s claim is true, then Nakamoto is a man living in the US.

Trust McAfee

In speaking to Bloomberg, McAfee reminded people that he has spent a lifetime tracking down hackers, meaning he is well capable of tracking down Nakamoto.

“People forget that I am a technologist […] I am one of the best,” he furthered.

What do you think? Do you believe McAfee?

TRON VibraVid | John McAfee Gets Behind TRON’s Upcoming Platform

The cryptocurrency world is noticing TRON. The blockchain network is developing a host of new legitimate platforms on its protocol. Now, notorious crypto enthusiast, John McAfee, loves one of the latest: TRON’s VibraVid platform.

TRON’s VibraVid and Further Protocol Developments

One of TRON’s most anticipated projects is BitTorrent Speed (expected in Q2 according to the website). Its purpose, as detailed on the website, is to reward “BitTorrent users with BitTorrent (BTT) in exchange for seeding and bandwidth, enabling faster downloads.”

The bandwidth sharing application is expected to lure millions of new people to the blockchain industry.

BTT, the token behind the application, is listing on dozens of exchanges at the same time that TRON’s dApp projects continue to grow.

Enhancing the entire TRON network, then, is an upcoming hardfork, which is expected to enhance the security and overall performance of TRON.

John McAfee and TRON VibraVid

As stated, John McAfee has taken notice of TRON’s developments, but one venture has caught his eye in particular.

The crypto bull expressed his adoration for the TRON VibraVid platform, saying “I do love this” in a Twitter response to the platform’s team.

VibraVid

VibraVid is an upcoming decentralized content sharing platform, “a decentralized answer to the industry giants like YouTube.” Powered by BeatzCoin (BTZC), the platform gives content creators a way to upload, market, and sell their content to fans or users. BTZC tokens are exchanged between artists and consumers directly, for the use of digital content. The idea is that the entire platform will act as a hub for artists such as musicians, who can control and monetize their works.

Clearly, John McAfee gets behind artists controlling their own assets on these types of sharing platforms.

TRON is the 9th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. At the time of writing, TRX is trading at $0.023 USD per coin according to CoinMarketCap.

Are you a fan of TRON? Do you think TRON’s VibraVid platform will be successful?

John McAfee Will Run His Presidential Campaign Overseas

US entrepreneur and crypto enthusiast John McAfee has fled the United States to conduct his 2020 presidential campaign.

John McAfee Runs for President

John McAfee is the founder of the famous McAfee antivirus software. Back in June of 2018, the cryptocurrency enthusiast announced his plans to run for the US presidency in 2020.

In the video above, McAfee claims he has been indicted by the IRS in the state of Tennessee and has been charged with ‘unspecified’ IRS crimes. His wife and four other members of his campaign have also been indicted.

McAfee said:

“I have not paid taxes for eight years, I’ve made no secret of it. I have not filed returns. Every year, I tell the IRS, I’m not filing a return. I have no intention of doing so, come and find me.”

The controversial cryptocurrency community figure claims he will run his campaign from his boat on international waters. John McAfee claims he will use proxies on US territory, as well as representatives in major cities. Cryptocurrencies will be at the forefront of his campaign. McAfee’s political views align with more of a libertarian view, in which he believes the government should have little power or be completely non-existent. In his mind, cryptocurrencies have the power to do this.

Without using central currencies, he claims, the government will not be able to fund the ‘excess’ they are doing. John McAfee believes digital currencies give individuals ‘freedom’ for the first time in human history from government rule.

Currently, the tech founder has not been convicted of a felony, which means he’s still able to run for president. Except, he doesn’t want to actually be president—he claims he just wants to use the stage to voice his opinion.

So, crypto community. After reading all that information, if John McAfee is allowed to run for president in 2020, does he have your vote?

Crypto World Cup Day 18

Welcome to Crypto World Cup Day 16!

We are down to the final 16 and this round gives no second chances; if you lose your match you are out. 

To arrive at the final 16 required tenacity and teamwork; it was a battle of the best and brightest but only the strongest have made it through. 

Today’s two games were Vitalik Buterin v Charles Hoskinson and John McAfee v Brad Garlinghouse

Match 1: Vitalik Buterin 3-4 Charles Hoskinson

What a game. This is the knock-out stage of the tournament and its a sad day for Vitalik Buterin as he bows out (somewhat gracefully) with a loss to Hoskinson.

Victory was made by one small but vital goal difference, as the two crypto figures kept at each others toes in this exciting game.

Hoskinson kicked us off early with a penalty goal at 13 minutes but it was Buterin’s cracker at 41 minutes which give him a much-needed boost of confidence. Suddenly it seemed the game came alive.

He created one of the most spectacular goals we’ve seen the Ethereum co-founder produce reminding us of his brilliance. 

However, he was matched (and then some) by Hoskinson who has always been a prominent force in this tournament. His four goals were nothing short of spectacular (especially the volley at 57 minutes which was controlled and showed his technical prowess.) 

Towards the end, frustration was clear to see on Buterin’s side, causing the referee to hand out yellow cards as if they were flyers. He desperately scrambled to find a fourth goal to level the game.

It never came. 

Hoskinson goes through and the disappointment was all over Buterin’s face as he is now sent home. His fans are the true victims of course. 

Match 2: John McAfee 1 – 2 Brad Garlinghouse

This game saw another world favorite sent home — John McAfee. Garlinghouse started well with a goal at 7 minutes which shook this game up. The draw came during the second half at 55 minutes but McAfee didn’t bring out the big guns until after Garlinghouse’s 62nd-minute goal. Some have scratched their head over this, as it was too late. Brad Garlinghouse was too strong and McAfee just could not find another goal.

What a start to the knock-out stages. With McAfee and Buterin out, this tournament is now wide-open.
