About the John McAfee Episode

In this episode, I talk with John McAfee about personal responsibility and how the McAfee Dex will eliminate the one weak point of the Crypto universe, the centralised exchange. 

Whilst Bitcoin has the first-mover advantage, McAfee believes other projects like the DAI and various privacy initiatives are more technologically evolved than Bitcoin.  Making the argument that whilst Bitcoin is not the best project out there, simple supply and demand economics dictate that Bitcoin will hit his planned trajectory of over $1m per coin. 

John factors this to simple maths, and that the likes of Jihan Wu are still putting all of their energy into gaining additional hash power, rather than retiring when they have made enough money. 

John also has some interesting viewpoints on who Satoshi Nakamoto maybe, but less than a 1% chance it is Craig Wright. 

I really enjoyed this episode, and I hope you learn something from this conversation. Thanks again for listening.

About John McAfee

John David McAfee is a British-American computer programmer and businessman. He founded the software company McAfee Associates in 1987 and ran it until 1994, when he resigned from the company. McAfee Associates achieved early success as the creators of McAfee, the first commercial antivirus software, and the business now produces a range of enterprise security software. The company was purchased by Intel in 2011 and spun back out in 2017 with TPG Capital owning a majority stake, though the software has always borne the McAfee brand name. McAfee’s wealth peaked in 2007 at $100 million, before his investments plummeted in the financial crisis of 2007–2008.
