John McAfee made a name for himself with McAfee Associates, the world’s first commercial antivirus software.
He went on to found and start many a company before entering the world of bitcoin mining with MGT in 2016. He believes that blockchain is the future of cybersecurity.
“The greatest problem in crypto is the following: the blockchain is intended or should be intended, to change our lives, not to make one tiny aspect of our lives bigger – like we’re using cryptocurrencies only as investment,” he explained in an interview with CryptoGlobe. “And yet many of these functional coins – if you used it for what it was intended it would enhance all of our lives – but no, what are people doing? They are just hoarding it… or abandoning it because it went down [in price]…We are missing the boat by twisting the intent of many of these coins into a money-making thing.”
John McAfee ended his relationship with MGT in 2018. He is now the CEO of Luxcore, a cryptocurrency company focused on enterprise security and privacy products.Tags: blockchain, cryptocurrency
