John McAfee is one of the most influential Social Media Influencers on the Krypowährungs market. For a long time it was not known whether or not he gets for his Tweets, in which he promoted most of the times, ICOs, and lesser known crypto-currencies, money. Now John McAfee has submitted, via Twitter, that he (apply now) against the money ICOs and Kryptos.
To this end, John McAfee compiled a McAfee Crypto Team to monetize his Tweets. He writes on Twitter, can book all of the Coins, and ICOs, have to its advertising of interest, the “McAfee” effect in exchange for money.
John McAfee is a well-known British-American businessman and programmer who has become by the development of the anti-virus Software McAfee is famous for. McAfee founded the company in 1987 and led it until 1994, when he retired from the company. The company was sold in 2011, at Intel, and renamed. The anti-virus Software but still the brand name McAfee. According to Wikipedia, McAfee’s assets in 2007 reached a peak of 100 million US dollars.
The Tweets from McAfee focus on Cryptocurrencies in General, Bitcoin and Altcoins, as well as the application of ICOs. Within the crypto community one of the biggest Influencers, as he writes on the McAfee Crypto Team website:
Within the cryptocurrency industry, nothing can match the power of a McAfee tweet. Frequently, a single tweet has resulted in more than a million dollars of investment into an ICO, and multiple currencies have increased more than 100% in price from a single tweet.
As he writes himself, have to say in the past few months, some of the Pump-and-Dumps, simply because of the “before” or rather its advertising took place. A Prime example is Verge, the crypto-currency, which was in mid-December, before his Tweet below one Euro-Cent and, within from two weeks to about 0.21 Euro rose. Another example of Reddcoin from the beginning of January 2018.
The McAfee Crypto-Team is focused exclusively on the Social Media reach of McAfee. In return for a Tweet or Post McAfee mere receives of 105,000 US-Dollar. According to the company website, customers receive of him but also an enormous range. According to the information on the website 737.000 Followers of his Followers to buy at least once in the month of crypto-currencies. Be 154 000 Followers of it act allegedly currencies on a daily basis with Crypto.
737,000 of his followers buy or sell cryptocurrencies at least once a month. 154,000 buy or sell crypto currencies daily.
From our point of view, this business model by John McAfee is an example of what is currently running on the crypto currency market is wrong. A company that takes advantage of the famous name of a Person and its “Power” to market to ICOs and to drive up the price by Pump-and-Dumps artificially to the top, is definitely the wrong way for the crypto-currency market.
The Potential which the technology offers will be exchanged for quick cash. In particular, in our view, questionable, such as McAfee and his Team the benefit of the advertising. For him and for the Team it would be easy to go before the anticipated pumping in the Coin or ICO and sell at the highest point.
