He is smart, there is no doubt about that but I guess everyone knows that no one could predict whether a coin is going up or down. The coin that he advertised may be indeed good as he claimed but that is not necessarily supposed to show in the price, we have coins that are completely useless and yet on the top, and some of them have a unique use case and active development but simply didn't make it. And If you're referring about the tweets that he used to make in the past (not sure If still doing it) then I believe he's being paid for that.

John McAfee likes to do a show. He has achieved success in his life, but that does not mean that he can be an authority in every field of economy or life.
The cryptocurrency market is unpredictable, so his ideas about the price of $100k for Bitcoin in 2020 are taken simply from the crystal ball. I hope this will happen, but in my opinion it is unlikely.

Ya he is for sure a smart guy but the drug addiction and his personality makes him a loose cannon.   I mean I'm sure he gets people excited about crypto but he probably turns off a lot of people with his ridiculous predictions.

I definitely respect John Mcfee because of his previous record right before crypto currency was popular, when he has not come out as a crypto enthusiasm but what I felt for him changed ever since he's involve in paid advertisement of make false market prediction. This was what make alot of people believed he's among those that harm the crypto world.

Might be annoying to anyone but his mouth full of talks about crypto quiet contribute to awareness and exposure of it even how realistic on unrealistic it was.

Different people have different way on understanding on a certain prediction or shills. If McAfee created a hype and people buy it, then they are being under of his words. Why just believed easily? Why just trust easily?

His predictions is considered as horrible and ridicolous by some but the end of the day, it's us who will decide on our next move.

Some who put money especially on ICO where McAfee promotes blame these guy for their losses. That's not making sense as they must understand the risks they are going into once they put money on ICO.

John's done a lot in terms of providing good talking points in articles for Bitcoin. He's been a staunch supporter, comparing Bitcoin to the new Gold Standard and such. But what has he done to make those optimistic comments come true? Nothing.

Seriously, what tangible thing has John added to bitcoin other than memes about him eating his own dick?

I'll wait patiently for your response.



John Mcafee is the 2nd most controversial crypto personality after Roger Ver. However, Roger Ver is mostly known in negative light but for John, it is mixed and not entirely negative.

This is the most ridiculous thing I've heard/read today. John McAfee doesn't even registers on the controversial scale. The 2nd most controversial crypto personality after Roger Ver is Craig Wright. Full stop.

McAfee doesn't harm the crypto world, if anything he harms himself. He basically says good things from whoever sponsors him to talk.

But in the late 80ies and early 90ies, the MSDOS world got rid computer viruses thanks to him, and that's the only good point i give him. I don't even care who he sold that company to, by the time it became a windows product it was garbage anyway.

And whatever happened to his life in Belize, is enough drama for someone whom i barely pay any attention.

John Mcafee is a famous businessman in the world that invented  the Mcafee anti virus that every knows and using this anti virus. My point is John Mcafee is a most influencial person so it means for what he said about crypto was everybody believe  on him because his reputation as a businessman was here on his saying. I believe on what he said that crypto will be rise more.

Lol... Mcafee is a complete joke when it comes to crypto...

He is basically paid to say whatever they tell him. I wish these guys would stay out of the light if they are investing.

Yeah  since he was accused of murder I kind of avoid reading about him.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I hope that nobody believes in these charges of murder! He is crazy, but not stupid. Probably it was another of his shows. He needs money, so he wants to remind about himself to the world in a new way. More people was talking about him, so he was able to earn more by fake pumping shitcoins.

Mcafee badly ruined his reputation and lost his influence. I think that many no longer take him seriously. I take a neutral attitude to him. I have never traded on his advice.

His comments on the prices of the Bitcoin are the part of speculation and not reality ,no one can predict the exact trend of the market as it is beyond the boundaries of the nation and with mass adoption the task of speculation will become more difficult.
