John McAfee is a very eccentric but still popular crypto personality. His every action and word instantly draws attention. Thus, we absolutely could not miss an interview that he gave to ETHNews discussing a couple of important issues.
Firstly, McAfee addressed the infamous story with Bitfi which we have thoroughly covered on our news portal. Many people were confused by McAfee’s behavior, thinking that he lied to all of his followers and customers. However, the “accused one” had an explanation for that:
“My job is to market this thing [Bitfi]. How better to market it than to create a controversy?“
Basically, McAfee admitted that he intentionally started all this drama with Bitfi to attract more attention to his wallet.
The crypto enthusiast also talked about a new big project – his own version of the CoinMarketCap, called McAfee Market Cap, and the further development of a decentralized crypto exchange. Though the program was launched, the developers had to take it down to introduce some upgrades and improvements.
Of course, the topic of possible running for presidency was not left out of the conversation. Here McAfee claimed that he is not interested in being the US President, he only intends to run for the post. According to him:
“The act of finding and creating the president – that’s what changes America. So I want to be involved in that.”
Overall, McAfee is very satisfied with everything he’s currently doing and the influence that he has on the financial world. He even modestly called himself “one of the premier technologists of this world”. However, only the time will show whether his ambitious plans will come true.
