A well-known crypto enthusiast, founder of MGT Capital Investments and presidential candidate John McAfee has announced his escape from the country.
On Tuesday, January 22, McAfee posted a video in which he says that officials in the Tennessee court charged him with “using cryptocurrency for criminal purposes.”
He added that his wife Janice and four other members of the team of his presidential campaign in 2020 were also charged with “criminal acts.”
Apparently, the crypto-enthusiast organizes its headquarters right on the yacht, which floats in neutral waters, presumably off the coast of Venezuela.
Among other things, the presidential candidate said that for all the time he “paid tens of millions of taxes, but did not receive any returns ..”. McAfee also has high hopes for cryptocurrency, suggesting a high degree of privacy. According to him, such means of payment can bypass the state.
