Popular Bitcoin Bull John McAfee Will Run For President While Being In Exile

Published

on

john mcafee

Coming into our latest bitcoin news today is John McAfee’s announcement to be running for president after he posted a video tweet while running away from the law after he and his wife were indicted by the Tennessee grand jury on federal felony charges.

He said in the video:

‘’For two years I’ve been speaking at conferences around the world and writing, and making videos about the fact that cryptocurrency will at some point come head to head with governments, because when privacy coins are widely used, governments will no longer be able to collect income taxes. Meaning governments will have to shrink and find new means.’’

However, known for his exaggerating skills, there is a slight chance he is not telling the truth and he is doing this for publicity only since he has already said to be running for president and 2016 and that didn’t happen.

Being that crypto-anarchist, anti-government millionaire that he is, he made his fortune from his anti-virus software back in the 1990s and also invested in cryptocurrency. He filmed a video explaining about the tax evasion charges while being on a boat where he explained that he and his wife are charged for tax evasion.

According to McAfee, taxation is theft and he thinks that in the near future people will consider before paying them. He made clear:

‘’I will not allow that. I am running my campaign in exile on this boat for the duration. I will not allow them to imprison me and shut my voice down, which they will do immediately. Why? I am a flight risk. Obviously, I am in flight.’’

BTC Price To Visit $9,569 Before 2020: Hedge Fund Executives

Published

btc price
The BTC price is a topic which is constantly in the main headlines of many best cryptocurrency news sites these days. According to top-tier hedge fund executives, Bitcoin will continue its rise of 114% in 2019 and visit the mid $9,000 region before the year ends. In a prediction that was first published on the US comparison website Finder which surveyed ten FinTech capitalists including executives from hedge funds Arca and BitBull Capital on Friday, the news showed that a majority of these execs expected that the BTC price would pull back from the $8,000 level. However, their prediction is strong and says that a rebound in June will push the cryptocurrency's price to as high as $9,659 by the end of the year. The reason why this is in the latest cryptocurrency news - and why the execs are so bullish - is quite simple. The April and May trading session alone saw an increase of 50% in the BTC price, making it rise from $4,000 to above $8,000. At the same time, a lot of mainstream financial markets underperformed which owed to escalating the economic tensions between the United States and China. https://twitter.com/Mashinsky/status/1128609266926014464 The Finder survey participants were also very quick to notice the relationship between the two events - the coming altcoin news show. Around a half of them said that mainstream investors diverted their capital from interim bearish equities to Bitcoin - as a strong sign of risk management. Meanwhile, the institutional investors are also seen as the ones who got in the rat race and have been building new services around the Bitcoin market - and as such were one of the main drivers in the latest BTC price rally.
“Eight out of 10 panelists think the price of bitcoin increased due to cryptocurrency-related announcements made at Consensus 2019 in New York City,” said Finder in the survey.
After the Consensus event finalized, the BTC price surged by more than 77% as a result of the positive news. The COO at Kinetic Capital which is a cryptocurrency trading firm, David Wills, recently said that the Bitcoin price is due for gains because of its potential for broader adoption as a currency.
“Last year, the bear market was in part caused by the fallout from many loss-making, unsuccessful initial coin offerings, and the participation by [a number of] questionable players that attracted regulatory scrutiny in cryptocurrencies,” Wills told the South China Morning Post.

Bitcoin Whitepaper Copyright Registration Filed By Craig Wright

Published

bitcoin whitepaper
Bitcoin whitepaper copyright registration was filed earlier today by the self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin Craig Wright. He also filed registration for the Bitcoin code with the US Copyright Office and we are reading more about in the latest cryptocurrency news today. In his attempt to prove that he is the real creator of Bitcoin, Wright filed the copyright registration. Since 2015, he continuously claimed that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto but he was not able to provide any hard evidence. The Bitcoin SV proponent was asked to provide a list of Bitcoin addresses by the court in order to back up his claims. Wright filed the bitcoin whitepaper copyright registrations for the 0.1 version of the early software of the cryptocurrency. In the text below you can read the two registrations in full:
‘’U.S. copyright registration no. TXu 2-136-996, effective date April 11, 2019, for the paper entitled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System, with year of completion 2008. The registration recognizes the author as Craig Steven Wright, using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.’’ ‘’U.S. copyright registration no. TX-8-708-058, effective date April 13, 2019, for computer program entitled Bitcoin, with year of completion 2009 and date of first publication January 3, 2009. The registration recognizes the author as Craig Steven Wright, using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Wright wrote most of version 0.1 of the Bitcoin client software, and the registration covers the portions he authored.’’
However, according to the executive director of Coincenter Jerry Brito, anyone can register a copyright claim. This does not prove the ownership by the US Copyright Office itself. The registration is just a formality. The CO does not look into the validity of the claim but they simply register it. Unfortunately, there is no way to challenge that registration since the Office will just register each one. Many in the community believe that Wright is not the real creator of Bitcoin. Some of the largest industry players have called him a fraud and gave him the nickname ‘’Faketoshi.’’ Wright launched a series of lawsuits as reported in our altcoin news against all of those who called him a fraud. The copyright registration will be the new weapon for Wright to support his claim to the name Satoshi.

Teen Bitcoin Millionaire: BTC Will Die If 4 Major Issues Are Not Solved

Published

teen bitcoin millionaire
Teen Bitcoin millionaire Erik Finman predicts once again that the number one cryptocurrency could ‘’ die’’ if four major issues are not resolved. According to the latest cryptocurrency news, Finman stated that the problems are ‘’sticky’’ and must be solved immediately. While speaking to Yahoo Finance, Finman explained the issues: the complexity of use, high transactions fees, fights among the developer teams and slow-processing speeds. He pointed out:
‘’It’s facing four big problems. One, its high transaction fees. Two, it takes a long time you know to kind of send anything. And then three, the people that are trying to solve those problems… it’s fragmented, it’s cultish, it’s really kind of a lot of group in-fighting. And I think the fourth one is it’s really hard to get into bitcoin. It’s really not easy.’’
Even before the interview, the teen bitcoin millionaire outlined the problems of the currency on social media. He first purchased bitcoin at the age of 12 after his grandmother gave him $1,000. Over the years, he was trading cryptocurrencies and now has about 457 bitcoins which is nearly $3.6 million. Finman also pointed out that the future for bitcoin as a leading cryptocurrency is not guaranteed. Bitcoin is ‘’facing a lot of stiff competition and I think it really has to respond to that.’’ Erik also revisited his statement which was deemed as extremely controversial in 2018 when he pointed out that the ‘’long-term bitcoin is dead.’’ He defended the statement saying that the cryptocurrency needs to have one or two more bull runs in order to be set for the better future. As reported in the altcoin news last week during the MarketWatch, Finman raised his concerns about Bitcoin. He even stated that Litecoin was also afflicted since the altcoin decreased over 95 percent since its record high. Despite his pessimistic view, Finman is bullish on blockchain technology as well. He added that anyone who failed to become a billionaire by investing in crypto or in blockchain, in ten years from now they would have themselves to blame. Among the top cryptocurrencies that Finman believes have the best chances of success include ZCash and Ethereum. He praised Bitcoin Cash’s technology but he says the altcoin is poorly marketed.
