John McAfee Cancels Conference Appearance Due to Death Threats

News reaching Ethereum World News indicate that popular Crypto-crusader, John McAfee, has been asked by the Blockchain World Conference organizers, to cancel his live appearance at the event after getting numerous death threats against Mr. McAfee.

In a tweet, the Blockchain World Conference stated the following:

McAfee would also add via twitter that:

I have been asked by the Blockchain World Conference organizers to cancel my live appearance due to fears of audience, and my own, safety. I will be live streaming from an undisclosed location at 11:00 AM.

He would later explain to his followers the following also via Twitter:

The choice not to appear on stage was not my choice. It was a decision made by the conference organizers. Blaming me simply and squarely places you in with my few hundred thousand trolls. If that’s where you wish to reside then so be it.

Whether the news of death threats are true or not, McAfee was most recently hospitalized for what he claimed was an attempted assassination through poisoning.

History as a Wanted man

Prior to that, McAfee had stated that he was on the run from the US government after he claimed that he had purposely committed a felony by calling out the SEC. It is not the first time McAfee has been a wanted man. In 2012 during his stay in Belize, McAfee seemed to ruffled the feathers of the Belizean government when his compound was stormed by 42 paramilitary soldiers in search of what they claimed were drugs in McAfee’s compound.

McAfee would later escape from Belize the same year through Guatemala after one was his neighbors was murdered under mysterious circumstances.

Presidential Bids and love for Docademic (MTC)

On his return to the US, McAfee would run unsuccessfully for president in 2016 and plans on running once again in 2020. Core to his new presidential bid, is his plan to provide universal healthcare in the US through the blockchain platform and App of Docademic (MTC) that he is passionate about.

In one of his tweets about Docademic and against his new foe, HitBTC, McAfee would state that:

McAfee currently enjoys a loyal following of 845,000 fans on twitter with this number expected to reach 1 Million pretty soon.

John McAfee Continues To Throw Jabs At HitBTC

John McAfee has asked his twitter followers, and the crypto-verse at large, to boycott the exchange known as HitBTC. According to McAfee, the exchange has embodied the corrupt powers that decentralization had set out to eliminate.

He would state the following via twitter:

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.

In reply to his tweet, many of his followers expressed their frustrations with the exchange as can be seen below:

One of McAfee’s twitter followers would recommend that decentralized exchanges were the only way to get rid of the power hungry centralized exchanges such as HitBTC. Others elaborated their experiences of how the exchange ‘held’ hostage their coins for weeks without an explanation. This was after one of McAfee’s associates offered to offer his help in solving all issues related to the exchange. Evidence of this can be seen in the tweet below:

McAfee has vowed to continue fighting the exchange until it realigns its priorities to mirror those of the crypto community and those who cannot afford the high fees on the exchange. John would issue this warning via twitter when he said:

HitBTC 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.

One of McAfee’s chief goals is to take down the entire system of power hungry governments, banks and exchanges. This is why he has expressed his intentions to run for President in 2020. Although he admits his chances of winning the elections are slim, he is confident that it will provide him a global platform to air his views to a listening audience. He plans on showcasing the almost-free healthcare solution of Docademic, as a solution to the healthcare debacle in the United States.
