The cryptocurrency evangelist John McAfee is a polemic person, no doubt about it. The former antivirus software developer, and now cryptocurrency believer and promoter, has declared on its Twitter account that there is a war coming, a war that the government and their institutions have started against the cryptocurrency movement, and he wants people to take action about it
In his declaration, he mentions that this coming war has been declared by the authorities and government institutions and calls people to react. He stated:
“BANKS HAVE DECLARED THE WAR ON US BY DENYING US THE ABILITY TO USE CREDIT CARDS TO PURCHASE CRYPTO; THE GOVERNMENT IS AT WAR WITH US: THE SEC (SECURITIES AND EXCHANGES COMMISSION) WANTS TO DECLARE CRYPTO AS SECURITY CLASS CONTRACTS; THEY ARE NOT.”
McAfee then instructs to fight back by pushing government and financial institutions to include crypto in their agendas and operations. He called to write the congressmen in power to be aware of the subject. He also suggested pushing the banks to take fiat currency from cryptocurrency origin into their accounts or switch to a bank that would allow that. And lastly, to write call credit companies to accept the use of their cards to buy cryptocurrencies.
Last week he also outed a document called “The Declaration of Cryptocurrency Independence” that states that fiat currencies have been rendered obsolete by cryptocurrencies; and that it is a “direct response to the continued manipulation and destruction that stems from the deliberate degradation of Value across the whole of humanity”
This action takes places weeks after that McAfee posted a tweet that announced that they were going underground, supposedly being pursued by officers from the government paid by the Securities and Exchange Commission. He reportedly went into hiding from his house in Tennessee and has not reported anything about his currents whereabouts ever since.
