The world is in turmoil! McAfee Found Dead In Prison

 Leading computer antivirus software founder John McAfee reportedly committed suicide in a prison in Barcelona, ​​Spain yesterday after a high court allowed him to be extradited to the United States (US) for tax offenses.


According to international media reports, the cause of his death is still under investigation.


McAfee was indicted in Tennessee for tax offenses and indicted in connection with a cryptocurrency fraud case in New York.


In 2019, he said not to pay U.S. income taxes for 8 years for ideological reasons.


That same year, McAfee left the U.S. to avoid facing court charges.


He once offered to help Cuba out of the US trade embargo using cryptocurrencies.



McAfee came to the forefront of the crypto world in July 2017 when it predicted the price of Bitcoin (BTC) would hit the US $ 500,000 level by 2020.


While the BTC price is seen to be experiencing a ‘bullish’ trend in November 2017, he raised expectations that the BTC will reach US $ 1 million by 2021.


Unfortunately his predictions were not accurate. McAfee also claimed that he knew the founder of BTC, Satoshi Nakamoto and wanted to reveal Nakamoto's true identity to the world, but that was just 'empty talk'.


McAfee frequently updates about his situation in prison via Twitter and one of his last messages is that he has lost all of his cryptocurrency holdings.


McAfee was arrested at Barcelona airport and jailed last October.


He had previously claimed the charges against him were political in nature and that if McAfee was extradited, he would face a life sentence.
