Would you trust this man with your dust?

It looks like it consolidates multiple exchanges into one interface.

You go first.

I don't trust any of the words this guy speak. Full of BS. Seems like age made him mad :-P
So, obviously I am not going to risk my dust there.

Cheers :-)

Looks like it has already crashed - I'm just getting time out errors. Great launch. Exactly the kind of workmanship I would expect from McAfee. Roll Eyes

From what I've read, you have to purchase a membership to be allowed to open an account, and then you have to purchase his own ERC-20 token to pay for your transactions to be processed, and then you presumably have to pay the transaction fee of the exchanges you are actually trading on. I wouldn't be surprised if he also wants to collect your personal data or if their security was terrible. Perhaps they will be using their hilariously inept Bitfi wallet as cold storage. Roll Eyes

Yep. It's been 2 hours now and the website still seems down. Not the best look for a new site, eh?

I don't really get the point of this exchange at all. While having a middleman broker between you and the exchange might protect yourself against some privacy concerns on the exchange's end, you're essentially trusting McAfee and his company to not collect and use your information, and, there is also added counterparty risk.

It seems like that he's planning on adding debit cards as a payment method as well in the near future. I'm not sure entirely how the regulations in the US is going to allow him to do that without strict KYC.

An exchange platform by an extremely controversial person and at the same time is being pursued by the government hence could be freezed and shutdown any time? Yea.. that would no doubt surely end up really really well for the users..  /s



EDIT: is this actually owned by McAfee? I mean, look at the registration page:



If this wasn't affiliated with McAfee I would automatically think that this site is a scam. It looks like something I would make in my first week of developing websites.

I've been waiting for the site to open for more than 10 minutes, but the site does not open... for a guy who is considered a good programmer, and creates a website that takes a lot of time to open. McAfee definitely needs to start taking it all seriously. It is not possible that even in the area where he has always been admired he will disappoint. Is fact that in the last years his behavior has always been bad, but I did not expect him to disappoint in the area where he was always admired

I doubt he has an actual hand in anything any more. He probably gets some asshole calling him up in a stupor and talking him into whatever springs to mind. When he comes round in the morning if there's some money in his wallet he goes tweeting.

Can anyone point to anything successful he's seen through to market directly created by him in recent decades? I'm coming up short myself.

Even if he initiated this it's probably been put together by some street kid he bought in the Bahamas and keeps chained up in the bilge.

Same thoughts. The dude that made the website probably just said that McAfee takes a cut on the website and he automatically accepts because munnyz. Most likely the same thing happened when the Apollo coin took up McAfee as their chairman.

Zero, as far as I know. The dude is just making a living off his name just because his name is quite famous in the technology industry in general. Dude be pumping shitcoins on Twitter.

This man is just a clown who has much impression on himself, maybe narcist. Also the reason why this man is clown is how he tries to make himself popular, claiming various reasons of he knows who is satoshi, he will unveil him if he won't tell himself to public that he is real satoshi and etc.
Why does he includes bitcoin in his trading platform if he is bad minded on satoshi? MacAtroll

lol, this looks like a straight up email harvesting scam.

the site says it is "powered by ARB". i'm guessing mcafee owns a shitload of these tokens. Cheesy

there's no trading engine apparently. so the idea is basically just to arb between 8 exchanges?

Site down.

If anyone here has any doubt that this is his website, judging from the poor UI I see above, I invite you to download his game app called Bitcoin Play. The app's amateur design, grammatical errors and clunky interface tells you all you need to know about his level of coding (or his judgment of which minion is good enough to do his coding).

And yes, I was idiot enough to play it (it's a Who Wants to be a millionaire format app) to kill time. I actually collected something like 15k satoshi (5 days or something) before he suddenly killed the app, took away everyone's satoshi (including mine) saying there wasn't enough revenue.

Yup. My bad for wasting my time.

So yes. He's out of ideas and trying to take more dust.

Sounds like a great platform from a great man. Unfortunately I don't have the dust to actually try the exchange for myself--oh and look the exchange is still down from here! But on a serious note, the fee structure is terrible, and the terms a trader must comply to before using the platform is really tedious and hilarious at the same time. I don't think anyone in their sane minds would actually want to use this, nor have the dignity to even try it at the least.

I don't know. For the same person who despises his own antivirus software (which he once owned), I see this platform going along the same route his antivirus traverse, and he will hate every being of this exchange soon.

The website is down for me too, but even it goes online again I'll stay away, I don't consider him trustworthy enough to run anything more than an altcoin bounty campaign...

He doesn't own shit about this "trading platform"; remember the Bitfi """hardware wallet"""? He's just getting paid to promote it, just like he loves to do with other bad projects and shitcoins. If you have a few BTC spared, you can get him to say whatever you want. Don't trust this just like you wouldn't trust any other random/shady exchange.

It's mind boggling how this con man still thinks people have enough confidence in him to follow his recommendations and whatnot. Anyone using this service and lose coins in the process has no right to complain about it.

It's people like him who put a bad name to crypto. This is his next attempt to avoid becoming broke so he can continue afford to pay his dealer. Sniffing grams of pure coke a day is an expensive addiction...

I doubt it's actually owned by John McAfee, from screenshot i've seen, even website template have better UI.

Besides, the website is still being worked & they simply left simple message :

Code:
<h2>Working...</h2>

because of that:

The AWS servers used by http://McAfeeMagic.com  are still under a cloaked  hoic DOS attack. I would like to thank the hackers from the bottom of my heart for the free publicity.

now I can enter the site, and I am very shocked by what I see, is a very ugly site that looks like it was made by an amateur

All the projects he's associated with are of incredibly low quality so that's not a surprise actually. It's almost a meme how each platform he shills is worse than the last! Check out the app he recently endorsed, "Bitcoin Play."

Spoiler: it's already been taken down. Wink

What game he's playing now? Seems like he's actively promoting 'his' exchange on Twitter.

Can't believe someone like him was an influential figure (read: pump & dump maestro) in the past.
