In July 2017, John McAfee, known for his charisma and eccentricity, announced that he would eat his penis if, by the end of 2020, the cost of Bitcoin does not reach $ 500,000. And after three months, the famous crypto enthusiast raised rates twice – up to $ 1 million.
As you know, the Internet does not forget such things, and over the past few years, many netizens have not missed the moment to remind McAfee about his “promise.” True, John said that his statement, which became famous, was just an advertisement for cryptocurrency in order to attract more attention and more users to BTC.
Eat my dick in 12 months?
A ruse to onboard new users. It worked.
Bitcoin was first. It's an ancient technology. All know it.
Newer blockchains have privacy, smart contracts, distributed apps and more.
Bitcoin is our future?
Was the Model T the future of the automobile?

In October 2019, a well-known businessman said that he did not give up his forecast, and was still confident in the significant growth of the coin in 2020. At the same time, John McAfee understands the old age of Bitcoin technology compared to newer blockchains, which are significantly superior to BTC in terms of privacy, security and work with smart contracts.
