The renowned crypto enthusiast, John McAfee, who once said he would ‘eat his own dick’ if Bitcoin didn’t surge to $1 Mln, now claims that Intel is suing him over his privacy project Ghost.
In line with a recent official tweet posted by McAfee earlier this week, the Intel corporation is suing him due to the utilization of the name “GhostbyMcAfee.” Ghost is a proof of stake coin designed for more anonymous blockchain transactions as the distributed exchange of the token went live earlier on 22nd June.
McAfee’s claim to fame is as the creator of one of the primary anti-virus programs as well as the founding father of the software company of the same name earlier in 1987. Intel purchased the McAfee company earlier in 2010 and has run it as a venture with TPG Capital since 2017.
Intel appears to be unhappy that John McAfee is suggesting an association between his privacy company as well as the anti-virus company via the utilization of ‘McAfee’.
Adding further, John McAfee added:
“The buyers of my old company are too foolish to know that whatever I create only assists their now pitiful product.”
As per an another tweet however, McAfee indicated that he maintains the right to use his full name, John McAfee.
The entrepreneur asked his followers on Twitter to help & suggest him for alternative names as his variation, “GhostbyJohnMcAfee,” was a bit too clunky.
“GhostbySatoshiN,” said user tothemoonrider. “No legal sharks swimming round the name of Satoshi Nakamoto.”
