People have a different perception of McAfee about the things he did before but one thing is sure, He is a smart opportunist that knows how to use his image to take advantage of other people. I believed that McAfee did many terrible things to the cryptocurrency community but I'm sure he has contributed some awareness to some people who don't know what bitcoin is.
All the scammers and criminals are smart opportunist, they find a loophole in a system and try to exploit it and that is what they are doing and some really do not think about the legal implications because they think that they can get away with these activities.
 
The only awareness i got from John McAfee and Mayweather situation is not to trust anyone when it comes to investment as they would do anything for money and their vouches means nothing.

If John McAfee is found guilty of breaking the law, he should be arrested. But many people are already victims of McAfee,
because they have experienced a loss buying shitcoins that are promoted by McAfee, they will be happy to hear this news.
I admit that McAfee is very smart as a profit maker, with its popularity he can use it to make a profit by promoting several
shitcoins. So I agree if anyone argues that McAfee is not a supporter of cryptocurrency, he only uses cryptocurrency to
generate profit for himself.

There’s a legal way not to pay any taxes, John McAfee don’t know how to use these laws in favor to him and not he’s facing a biggest fight of his life or else he’ll be in jail. Tax evasion is not good because its your obligation to pay correct taxes so if you get caught, you have to face the consequences of being greedy.

Too bad for him tho, there's no escaping that, seems like this is the major reason why "Youc"(the youengine token) fell beyond the IEO price, because his the face of their project,I really feel sorry for them,they made the project to look like he owned it, i remember back then 2017/2018 when ICO'S was booming, he used his reputation to promote several tokens, that later turned out bad, even scammers took advantage of it and started using his reputation to sell their worthless tokens to people Cheesy.

Because John has this attitude of a stubborn mule. He thinks he can do whatever he wants and if somebody doesn't like him then fuck him.

He reminds me of all those sovereign citizens who live in the US and think they don't have to obey any laws. The truth is that they and John obey only the laws they like and ignore the ones they don't like.

It's going to be hard for John to survive without alcohol and coke. Jail can be a wake up call for an addict.

He may be a clown but he is one of the strongest supports that crypto will ever get. He definitely have pumped and dumped various alt coins for his own benefit but he was always very vocal about the cryptocurrencies and their developmens. It's hard to find another strong supporter of cryptocurrency in recent times.

While many people won't give a shit about this news, I am actually sad because he is facing an organized attempt to silent a strong crypto support.

Well, McAfee used to shill many scam projects in the crypto space. Whenever he did that unknowingly or not, we cannot tell with certainty. So many people lost money by investing in scam projects endorsed by McAfee. Despite his wild and crazy behavior within the crypto space, he has gathered a large number of supporters in such a short amount of time.

As far as his arrest goes, I think it's justifiable. It was his responsibility to pay taxes from his crypto income in order to comply with the law. Exchanging crypto to Fiat doesn't make you exempt from a country's taxation laws. Now he has to face fines or even jail time because of tax evasion. May this be a lesson to all of us crypto enthusiasts, to always pay our taxes when we sell crypto for cash (Fiat). As long as you're a law-abiding citizen, there should be nothing to worry about. I hope Mr. McAfee could make amends with the government in exchange for his liberty. Whatever happens in the long run, this negative event is certainly a huge blow to the entire crypto/Blockchain space. Just my opinion Smiley

I used to be a pretty big fan of MCAfee until I started seeing what a scumbag he was turning in to.  I guess he was truly always a scumbag, I just was letting his bad side slip past me due to appreciating the good things he did.  He was certainly getting involved with a bunch of shitcoins which tipped me off.  I have a few buddies who met with him, actually smoked a joint with him.  Apparently he was a pretty big dbag, and all about himself.

so mcafee used to be a good guy before ? but its a typical move for guys that have a hidden agenda to act as a good guy at the start so that they can gain followers and once they grew it , the real plan will start to arise as well . bashing bitcoin is a light crime but tax evasion is more serious , no wonder how he got his millions  because of not paying his tax .

Specifically why a lot of people in the cryptocurrency industry hated him apart from his baseless claims regarding bitcoin. Dude prolly hated on bitcoin so much to ensure that his following will focus on the shitcoins he promote with the intent of leeching money to them. Apart from that, I kind of feel bad that he didn't get jailed for those heinous acts though. But nevertheless I am certainly happy that he's going to rot in jail now.

About two years ago I was one of the victims of John McAfee, by buying some of the ICOs he was promoting. The ICO price dumped
immediately as soon as it entered the exchanges, and there were several tokens that I couldn't sell until now. So with the loss that
I experienced, it is only natural that I am quite happy to hear about John McAfee's arrest. May he become aware of the tragedy he is
experiencing, not to lie to the public anymore. And turn into a better person, and make a positive contribution to the world of crypto.
Although I doubt John McAfee could have changed for the better, if we look at his character so far.

He has always been and will always continue to be a sleazeball. His name was associated with some of the worst AV software that was available until Intel bought them. His whole stunts of claiming he would eat his own phallus made crypto into a 3 ring circus. If that's the kind of publicity he brought to the table, then it's great that he'll be inside a cell enjoying somebody else's phallus.

Those old days where pumped channels are also hypes, there are lots of threads and channels that being relates to McAfee people who are riding with his popularity gained and scam lots of innocent crypto followers.

Natural reaction when you heard something that bring your loses into justice. He deserve it as he influenced a lot.

Quote
May he become aware of the tragedy he is  experiencing, not to lie to the public anymore. And turn into a better person, and make a positive contribution to the world of crypto.
After this, we will see more from him trying to convince people again protecting his innocence, expect the unexpected.

Closer to reality as we seen his characteristic over the pass years of his deeds around the industry.

About two years ago I was one of the victims of John McAfee, by buying some of the ICOs he was promoting.
That was his job, he was misleading people by promoting the shady ICO's, just a few months ago I saw his post on Twitter in which he was promoting a useless project. [Tweet]
I do not know whether he used to get money, or he used to enjoy it by tricking people. However, I am happy that he will be punished for his wrongdoings.

Apparently, he was arrested at Barcelona airport (El Prat) last Saturday, when he was on his way to transfer to Istanbul. A police control in the area of international flights led to his detention, once they found out that he has an Interpol search and capture order on his shoulders, pending immediate extradition to the USA.

He was taken to court, after which the magistrate proceeded to send him to jail (a prison called Brians), presumably until they extradite him (or his lawyers manage to squeeze him out somehow).

See (in Spanish): https://www.lavanguardia.com/sucesos/20201006/483889290908/john-mcafee-detenido-barcelona-antivirus.html

It doesn't surprise me, he was hiding out in Cuba all this time because he was wanted by SEC for refusing to pay his taxes, However I don't recall him seriously attempting tax evasion but I could be wrong. The guy shouldn't have made a big noise about morality of taxes when confronted about his non-payment and at the very least he should've kept his mouth shut.

It was also dumb of him to travel internationally when he knows he's on a wanted list and can get arrested after landing.

I'm definitely not totally against tax evasion(because most governments suck), but I'd probably at least be ever-so-slightly compassionate about his arrest if he didn't pump and dump coins left and right. Dude made A LOT of money taking advantage of his notoriety while dumping on a lot of newbies.

Totally agree. If the government wants us to pay tax let us pay in crypto so we can see where it ends up. I'm not against tax evasion at all lol. As long as you donate or do something good with the money you probably helping much more than wasting it by paying a silly tax. I don't understand why he bashes bitcoin. Apparently he endorses YOUC the token in my signature. So that's confusing.

     I am having mixed thoughts about his arrest to be honest. Although governments may differ in many countries but despite the corruptions happening every where, tax is vital for every country. Plus the fact that his shills on the previous years affected a lot of blind investors, just makes me feel he deserves whatever he gets. But on another note, he is still a big person in this industry which is also why I am a bit worried what happens next after this.

Yup I have seen the news as well. It’s really funny how he kept saying that Bitcoin is a bad cryptocurrency and all that, and at the end he’s the one who is even a scammer. I know he started hating on Bitcoin after he made several analysis and said that we should expect price of $500,000 which never happened, then he started bashing Bitcoin.

I guess he saw what happened in 2017 and thought that the same was going to be repeating itself and he wanted to use that opportunity to make himself richer, but unfortunately for him he was disappointed. I don’t really have his time, I have never even followed him before, just used to people talking about him on this forum.

About two years ago I was one of the victims of John McAfee, by buying some of the ICOs he was promoting. The ICO price dumped
immediately as soon as it entered the exchanges, and there were several tokens that I couldn't sell until now. So with the loss that
I experienced, it is only natural that I am quite happy to hear about John McAfee's arrest. May he become aware of the tragedy he is
experiencing, not to lie to the public anymore. And turn into a better person, and make a positive contribution to the world of crypto.
Although I doubt John McAfee could have changed for the better, if we look at his character so far.

You are not alone. Some of my friends also lost their money in 2017, after trusting this criminal. In some cases, the dumping was initiated almost immediately when the trading started for the token. None of these projects are active now, and the investors are left with some useless tokens in their wallet. And I don't believe that any of the victims are even hoping that they will get reimbursed for their losses.

But recently I heard some encouraging news:

https://cointelegraph.com/news/sec-bring-john-mcafee-to-court-over-ico-promotion

Quote
On Monday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed suit against John McAfee for allegedly promoting initial coin offerings (ICOs) without disclosing that the ICO issuers were paying him, a violation of U.S. securities law. Per the complaint: "From at least November 2017 through February 2018, McAfee leveraged his fame to make more than $23.1 million in undisclosed compensation by recommending at least seven “initial coin offerings” or ICOs to his Twitter followers."

I can't believe I missed this, wow, happened one week ago and I had zero clues about it...but know that I think about it it's better this way, seems like the impact this guy was usually triggering in the news is slowing dying own.
Not to say that I'm happy he got arrested for the tax thingy but I'm happy about the different things mentioned in the SEC document.

Quote
The complaint alleges that McAfee made other false and misleading statements, such as claiming that he had personally invested in some of the ICOs and that he was advising certain issuers. McAfee and Watson also allegedly engaged in a separate scheme to profit from a digital asset security by secretly accumulating a large position in McAfee’s accounts, touting that security on Twitter while intending to sell it, and then selling McAfee’s holdings as the price rose.

From what I read in the NYT he has five counts of 5 years maximum, I doubt he will get that much, especially considering his age and I'm pretty sure his lawyer can at any time come with a perfectly legal document claiming his client is mentally unstable, but a few months will be enough for him, I'm pretty sure he will get enough dick jokes during that time he will not be able to say this word anymore.


It doesn't surprise me, he was hiding out in Cuba all this time because he was wanted by SEC for refusing to pay his taxes,
<>
It was also dumb of him to travel internationally when he knows he's on a wanted list and can get arrested after landing.

Seems like he was in Europe previously and he traveled in and out of Spain at least twice in the last 6 months:

This man gets himself in a situation where he seems not to escape if he doesn't serve some time in prison and find some money for the damage he has done. How come he lets himself paid to say bad things about Bitcoin and look what has he got? Now he is currently in the worse situation of his life. No matter how you can escape the lies, you will still pay for it no matter what happened. Just like what happened to this guy here.
