"What idiot could believe such nonsense?" tweeted yesterday, John McAfee, about his old prediction that bitcoin would reach $ 1 million by the end of 2020. "Who on Earth would believe that Bitcoin would reach $ 1 million?"
McAfee, who reaffirmed his prediction several times, backed down on what he said. “Wake up!” He wrote on his twitter. "If Bitcoin reached $ 1 million, its market value would be greater than the GDP of the entire North American continent."
In his defense, McAfee claims to have made the prediction along with another absurd hunch: "I made the prediction the same day that I predicted that" whale sex "would replace Surf as the number one water sport", adding that the sport has "A thousand times more likely to reach the stage of the Olympics".
On January 5, McAfee denied the forecast and said it did so only as bait for new investors. “Bitcoin was the first. It is an old technology. Everyone knows it."
John McAfee leads a complicated life. In 2012, he ran away from his home in Belize after suspected of killing his neighbor. In exile, he directed his presidential campaign from a boat. And earlier this month, he encouraged viewers to buy weapons to protect themselves from the coronavirus crisis.
