Crypto pundit, John McAfee, is speaking tough on HitBTC and other exchanges for not standing in defense of the poor whose funds are being carted away by hackers.
Mr. McAfee, a respected programmer known for condemning fiat currency while maintaining that crypto (BTC, LTC, XRP, XMR, TRX) is the next big thing, is calling for total boycott of HitBTC and other exchanges which crypto lovers say are behind market manipulations and having exorbitant buy-in that is greater than the poor’s monthly income.
McAfee tweeted: “The crypto exchanges have become the thing that we have originally fought against. Their power is immense. HitBTC, for example, has increased suffering for millions of poor people who cannot afford the minimum buy-in since it is greater than their monthly income. Boycott them.”
He later maintained that he’s going to be HitBTC’s worst enemy until they go in line with the cryptocurrency community while helping the poor at the same time.
“I will be your worst enemy until you prove that you are aligned with our community and are truly interested in helping the poor. You have not done shit to help access the only free healthcare in the world.”
While the cryptocurrency community is wondering what might have gone wrong between McAfee and HitBTC, it is no news that so many exchanges are being manipulated to fence out the poor who believe there is future in HODLing crypto.
Recently, John McAfee launched his coin, McAfee coin, saying in a tweet on the 29th of May, that the crypto will come live in 26 days time.
“No hoax. The “McAfee Redemption Unit” is real and coming in 26 days. The graphic is low res – don’t want to give much away yet. Printed on currency paper, holographs on both sides, serialized, linked to the blockchain, redeemable, convertible, collectible”
Though, there is no sign McAfee coin would be unveiled soon, owing to his silence on the coin, but there is a new development. The crypto dad has unveiled his McAfee wallet on the 22nd June, and when it was made public for sale on 28th, the first batch of the wallet was sold out within 2 minutes.
“Today I am announcing my ultra secure wallet, built by Bitfi. It will forever change the landscape of crypto storage. Would have told you earlier, but, if you read my prior tweets, I was unconscious. Anyway, you must check it out”.
