John McAfee on crypto regulation and Bitcoin price prediction
Crypto enthusiast, John McAfee took to Twitter recently to talk about regulation in crypto. He also wrote about a Bitcoin bet that he made on the social media platform earlier.
McAfee had earlier shared on the social media platform that he predicts that Bitcoin will reach $1 Million by 2020 and if it doesn’t he will ‘eat his own d*ck’. Given the current state of the crypto market where major coins have slipped the price ladder, McAfee seems to be conceding that the crypto market might not be able to reach his prediction.
McAfee wrote, “If the worst comes and I lose my Bitcoin bet (keep in mind I promised to eat my d*ck. The cutting it off first was added by the media), I will probably subcontract the task to a relay team of Bangkok prostitutes with instructions to carry out the task slowly, finishing as I exit.”
It is to be noted that McAfee has most of the time been very optimistic about the crypto market. In fact, after recent market crash, the dip in BTC prices which almost shook the crypto community, McAfee urged the community to stay calm. He said that the bear market is like “winter” and it will pass. “People have panicked. But there’s no fu**ing need,” he assured.
On another tweet, he spoke about crypto regulation and how he believes that the character of cryptocurrency is in opposition to any form of regulation. McAfee wrote, “What do you think “permissionless” means? It is the foundation of the Blockchain. We are building the first truly free thing humans have ever done.” He further explained, “You cannot be free and at the same time be regulated. Fools will always loose. We cannot save them.”
