John McAfee was indicted again –

John McAfee indicted again? Yes. It turns out that the American services claim that he has a fraud in the cryptocurrency market on his conscience.

John McAfee indicted

John McAfee is a frequent hero of our texts. A lot of people know his name because he is the founder of a company that produces anti-virus programs. In addition, he fought for the presidency in 2016. Of course, without success.

In turn, most Bitcoin fans heard about him when he announced his famous bet. He argued that 1 BTC will cost $ 1 million in 2020.

McAfee is also well known to investigators. In the past, for example, he was accused of tax evasion and even ordering the murder of his neighbor while he was living in Belize. The businessman even ran away from the American treasury to… the ocean. When the tax office was looking for him, after failing to pay the tax, McAfee sailed his yacht out into the wide waters to escape through the unpleasant need to pay tribute.

What is it about now? Federal authorities accuse McAfee and his bodyguard Jimmy Gale Watson of persuading people to invest in cryptocurrencies such as Reddcoin and Dogecoin by using a businessman’s Twitter account between December 2017 and October 2018. Apparently, the eccentric John himself sold his resources after the increase in the rates of these cryptocurrencies. In his tweets, however, he claimed that he did not invest in them himself. Everything took place as part of the Coin of the Day and Coin of the Week campaigns.

Both McAfee and Watson were expected to earn close to $ 2 million from this. The duo has already heard seven charges for which they face a penalty of 5 to 20 years in prison (for each of them).

McAfee is a very colorful character. In 2020, he wanted to run for president again. He even admitted that he not only wants to be a candidate for the US president, but also dreams of being the prime minister of the United Kingdom at the same time. He then wrote on Twitter:

Can a person apply at the same time [o stanowiska] President of the United States and Prime Minister of Great Britain? Yes. Absolutely. Without a doubt. But I believe that I am one of the few people still alive who qualify for such a combined position.

In addition, it launched its decentralized cryptocurrency exchange.
