John McAfee is a bit crazy when it comes to public statements and i am sure he is taking sweat money from projects to endorse those projects and so is the reason you will see him tweet about certain projects and how he thinks about it and so on, he is just manipulating people because of his reputation and literally no one cares about his crazy ideas, everyone knows that the price would increase but you cannot predict the time limit at which the price will increase exactly.

Exactly, we know how eccentric this guy is so I don't think that rational people will have to believed everything that comes out of his mouth. Evident of that is his tweet, or coin of the day. And lately he admitted that he was paid handsomely to tweet most of the coins because they know how he can influence a lot of his crypto followers.

But regarding the OP question, I don't think that he will do it if bitcoin doesn't get to 1 million in 2020. Again, he just burst it during the time when bitcoin was enjoying its peak, so its just another hype stunt and nothing to take seriously.

I prefer the prediction by the XAPO guy. 1 million by 2027.

2020 will probably see the price of 100k, after the next halvening.

This is a lot of money for those entering the market now. More than 10x the current price.

You have to aim for realistic priorities. This lambo meme is for the whales only.

1 million USD per BTC is a lot of money. And to reach that value in just 9 years doesn't seem very likely to me.
Not that it is not possible, but I believe the chances aren't that big. Double the time span, so 18-20 years and I would agree.
Furthermore who knows how Casares' opinion about Bitcoin's future value is today. Let's remember he is one of the guys who wanted to fork Bitcoin (S2X) and take control over it with all other suits.

For december 2020, so half a year after next halving, I hope of price of $30k to $50k.

December 2020 is more than 2.5 years away, which is a millennium in bitcoin terms. Still, I think it is difficult for Bitcoin to get to seven figures before then. McAfee does seem to be temperamental guy. I wouldn’t be surprised if the price doesn’t get there and he carries out what he said.

I have been quite pessimistic with past BTC predictions in the past, but $1M by 2020 is ridiculous

While reading his tweet I'm feeling that his serious and determined with his bet that bitcoin will go $1,000,000 soon. But I have doubt with this speculation, he can change his prediction few months before the said date for that prediction and will just give an apology since his reputation was damaged already because of pumping ICO's. I care if bitcoin's price will reach $50,000 - $1,000,000 but I don't care if John will eat his dick. What's important to me is that he's countering those FUDsters that are dominating different social media platforms and news website nowadays

yes i could not agree more,
even though he is a douchebag,but we could not deny the fact that he tried his best to defend it on his twitter.
and i admit it that some of his tweets were defending people from fear and panic.
but at the same time we should know the fact that he sold his soul for promoting an ICOs.
well,he was like a double edge sword.
nobody's perfect,right ?

P.S : Still,i do not believe him
I'm going to appreciate his counter to the FUDsters and most of us will not appreciate his predictions since he showed on who he is. Accepting paid advertisement for his tweets to shill those ICO's that are looking for a better way to market their sale and even shilled some altcoins. Nobody's perfect and majority here doesn't like him anymore. Well whether bitcoin reach $1,000,000 soon let's wait if he's true to what he is saying.

He is a typical sociopath in my perspective. I know its not related to what he does in the bitcoin space, but there is a documentary of him on youtube where one of his so called girlfriend in Thailand said that he like to do some kinky stuff like eating their feces which turns him on. It is also rumored that he is involved in a murder. Its give an outlook of the kind of person he is. SHADY AF.  

In the meantime in the crypto world he is a hype and fame whore where looks to exploit opportunities to make bucks (Advertising scam ICO). The prediction of bitcoin to reach 1M is just for a media hype to increase the price that's all. His statement of him eating a dick is not gonna happen at all IMO, he is gonna come with some excuse saying its was a prank or something in the end.

McAffee won't eat his dick and that's because he'll probably be dead before then. Otherwise it's chow time. $1m just seems like a lifetime away from where we are now, even if the site you linked may suggest we are only slightly below where we'd need to be in terms of growth since his prediction.

Its a win win situation for him because he is paid for promotion on his twitter anyway.    If he is known to speak on the basis only of being paid to have a certain view I dont know why people would hold his opinion or price objectives as especially accurate.   He is just gaining attention for promotion.

Has he had a great opinion previously on any matter crypto that was especially prescient.

I personally don’t believe that BTC can get to 1 million by the end of 2020, but it MIGHT 5 or 10 or 20 years later.

Its not impossible so long as you project also US dollar value falling inversely to this rise.    In Zimbabwe dollars he is already correct for example, in real value no its not going to occur.   Bitcoin is just one of many alternates to dollar

Yes, he is making a lot of money just by simply twitting. But as far his opinion, so be it, we all know that he just joined the bandwagon recently and then became famous with his outrageous predictions but I'm sure he is doing it to attract media attention.

I also doubt that we can see bitcoin going to 7 figures. Will take us years to even reach half a million. He is still hyping crypto too which is a good thing I guess.

I don't think that should even be taken seriously. The old man probably just aims to get more people into investing by making such radical assurances. Well i'm hoping he's right but at this rate, we're nowhere going to be close to that target in 2 years

You dont even have to consider the mans reputation.  Who can blame him for cashing in peoples recognition of his name, thats how the world works unfortunately.   Its easier then thinking or in this case I suggest peoples just do the maths on this.

Dont look at price, look at market capitalisation and revenue.  Alternate streams such as VISA and Mastercard, the main play is in Dollar breaking down as the worlds main reserve currency.  Just like BTC in crypto is the main monetised blockchain but theres alternates.    Theres a reason why people use dollar but also why they would switch to alternatives.

But in any case 1 mill for a coin is pretty much impossible by modern dollar values, if it lost 90% of its value then possibly that would justify it.

I may be very optimistic, but I see a great future for bitcoin. I believe in any positive predictions. But that doesn't give me the right to turn my mind off. I won't keep all the coins all the time. I always have a Fund that I use on the stock exchange for trading. It allows me to meet my needs. I keep only those coins that I won't need for at least a year.

I will advice we should wait till then before thinking of asking him of eating his dick on live television. John has done his own by forecasting the position of thing last year and he has contributed to the development of cryptocurrencies, no doubt he has tried and we just need to commend him for his confidence on bitcoin and believe on blockchain technology.

Before he went down as a famewhore seeking for someone to extort money from, I always believed whatever that guy has been saying. But now, seeing that he has been using his short-lived fame to get money from starting ICOs and services, I wouldn't trust him one bit. Obviously he will be trying to work his way out of whatever the hell he said when he was hyping bitcoin to reach $1M in 2020. He's nothing but a scammer and a complete asshole right now. He might not eat his own dick on live TV, but the trust he garnered had already been lost during the process.

Agreed. He seems to just be abusing his fame and celebrity status for money now.

I have also read an article saying that he charges $105k for promo tweets. Basically a paid to promote type of guy.

And these outrageous predictions that make eye catching headlines just make his publicity even more well known, and newbies think that he is a real crypto expert. The truth is that he is most likely wrong, even in the most bullish scenario I wouldn't see bitcoin going to $1 million by 2020. The least it'll take is at least a decade, in my opinion, and that'll depend on if hyperinflation strikes or not.

I used to think that he was pro-bitcoin, but now I think he's just trying to make a quick buck out of this bitcoin bull market. His predictions are not helping bitcoin grow in any way, in fact it's just going to reinforce the idea that bitcoin is some sort of money making machine.
It seems to me that if he's promoting a certain ICO, that project will get a lot of support from the community because I joined one ICO that he is supporting and when the pre-sale, they reached their hard cap, I used to think that his support is a big factor in the success of the pre-sale tho but  before the ICO's main sale started, they announced that John will no longer support that project and they decided to take different ways. I don't really know what is the real score there but I hope it is not something like this.

McAffee won't eat his dick and that's because he'll probably be dead before then. Otherwise it's chow time. $1m just seems like a lifetime away from where we are now, even if the site you linked may suggest we are only slightly below where we'd need to be in terms of growth since his prediction.

I don't think that should even be taken seriously. The old man probably just aims to get more people into investing by making such radical assurances. Well i'm hoping he's right but at this rate, we're nowhere going to be close to that target in 2 years

Actually as the link shows at this rate of growth we're not that far below where we should be, but that assumes a static rate of growth which is unrealistic.


But in any case 1 mill for a coin is pretty much impossible by modern dollar values, if it lost 90% of its value then possibly that would justify it.

It's the only scenario in which it could happen, the dollar would have to go through hyper inflation, that might happen but not within the next 2 years.

but $1M by 2020 is ridiculous
Ridiculous for now but I'll change my mind if I can see that there's a light close to this prediction. We don't know if he'll do something just to pump and make his prediction correct and this is favorable to us even to those that aren't holding much bitcoin on their wallets.

The old man probably just aims to get more people into investing by making such radical assurances. Well i'm hoping he's right but at this rate, we're nowhere going to be close to that target in 2 years
He's attracting more investors.
More investors = more demand = higher price = $1,000,000.  Grin

Well, I got to admit something, he makes for a great bull:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZkn3nBp5aE

You can't say that his optimism isn't contagious, he gets you pumped and makes you believe $1,000,000 is possible by 2021, but he also predicts $1trillion by the end of this year (I mean $1trillion market obviously). Honestly is not that impossible. $1trillion marketcap could be easily achieved if a couple of whales diversify their portfolios into crypto (and that has to be Bitcoin unless they are insane).

That's honestly a ridiculous amount to ask for just to make a single tweet to endorse a new project

Not even expert reviewers get paid that much to do an indepth analysis

So much for credible rating and reviewing of ICO's
