In line with a recent official ‘Twitter post‘ published, renowned crypto enthusiast, Bitcoin [BTC] bull and 2020 United States presidential campaigner named ‘John McAfee’ is about to launch his own ‘cryptocurrency‘.
As per the ‘web-site‘ on the declared cryptocurrency, the “McAfee Freedom Coin” will roll-out some time this fall. The McAfee ‘Freedom Coin’ seems to aim for total isolation and independence from standard fiat currencies, assets and exchanges in an effort to reach “the Holy Grail of crypto’s – economic freedom.”
As per McAfee, these are the specified properties of the new cryptocurrency:
“What is desired is a coin disconnected from fiat currencies and from other crypto assets alike – a coin with zero cash-in worth, yet accepted globally … it’s not based on any commodity neither it is connected to the value or behavior of any external item or entity. The worth of the coin will perpetually be zero in relation to any other currency yet it’s natural market value is free, completely, to grow.”
As ‘reported‘ earlier, McAfee proposed his plans to run for President of the U.S. in 2020 on a boat, since he has supposedly been indicted by the U.S. IRS [Internal Revenue Service].
McAfee has reportedly made no secret of his tax evasion, adding that he has not filed taxes for past 8 years. His presidential campaign is additionally not a significant bid for the office, but rather an expressed attempt to promote ‘cryptocurrencies‘ as a means to securing personal freedom for users.
Within the recent news, McAfee ‘added‘ that he has discovered the identity of the mysterious Bitcoin [BTC] creator ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’, who is supposedly an individual living within the United States. McAfee apparently was planning to out Nakamoto’s identity, but has put forward his plan on pause per recommendation from his extradition lawyer:
“The U.S. extradition request to the Bahamas is close. I met with Mario Gray, my extradition attorney, and it’s now clear … that releasing the identity of Satoshi at this time might influence the trial and risk my extradition. I can’t risk that. I’ll wait.”
