Many in the crypto community had started questioning the whereabouts of John McAfee. This is after he had gone missing from Twitter for three days, which was quite unusual. However, the King of crypto as he is popularly referred to, resurfaced on Twitter.
Although what he reported on his tweet was not what his fans expected to hear. He claimed that someone attempted to kill him, hence, left him in critical condition in the Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina.
As per McAfee’s post, it seems like his said enemies were able to spike food or a drink he was consuming. This led to him being unconscious for two days with doctors working hard to ensure he stays alive.
Spiked what he was consuming
The cybersecurity mogul stated in his post that, he apologized for his two-day absence but he was unconscious for two days at the Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina. He claimed to have just woken up. He said that his enemies managed to spike something that he ingested. He concluded his post by stating that he is more difficult to kill than anyone can possibly imagine.
He even went ahead to post photos of himself lying in a hospital bed. Alongside the photos, he warned his perpetrators by telling them he knew who they were. He even threatened them that they would soon understand the meaning of wrath.
Several days after that, he revealed on Twitter that he has ceased working with cryptocurrency ICOs. He stated that he will also not be recommending them anymore. McAfee claimed to have reached the decision following threats from the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Quit working with ICOs
The Tech tycoon stated via a tweet that due to SEC threats, I am no longer working with ICOs nor am I recommending them. He said that those looking forward to ICOs can look forward to a rest. He said that it is unjust but it is the reality. He advised his followers to be patient since he was writing an article on an equivalent alternative to ICOs which the SEC cannot touch.
In a recent discussion entitled Investing In America, the Securities and Exchange Commission chairman, Jay Clayton seems to have uttered some comments that angered McAfee. Since then the latter has been engaged in a bitter quarrel with the SEC.
