John McAfee says he is once again ready to contest for the top seat in America as he seeks to improve conditions for the crypto community with his pro-cryptocurrency platform.
In spite of past refusals, I have decided to again run for POTUS in 2020. If asked again by the Libertarian party, I will run with them. If not, I will create my own party. I believe this will best serve the crypto community by providing the ultimate campaign platform for us.— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) June 3, 2018
The millionaire and founder of the McAfee antivirus software, has established himself as a cryptocurrency advocate and a strong believer in Bitcoin. Last year he openly fended off the attacks form a J. P. Morgans CEO who called the world’ biggest cryptcurrency a “fraud.”
“I’m a bitcoin miner. We create bitcoins. It costs over $1,000 per coin to create a bitcoin. What does it cost to create a U.S. dollar? Which one is the fraud?” McAfee said at the time.
It is not yet clear if John McAfee will run as part of the Libertarian partly like in 2016 or he will create his own party to promote his agenda.
However, what he did say is: “Don't think that I have a chance of winning. I do not.” as he instead hopes to gain a platform to express his views.
