Bitcoin bull John McAfee wants to resolve his dispute with the South China Zombie Research Centre over their “zombie ICO” partnership.
China Zombie threatened to file a $100 million lawsuit against McAfee. In an angry tweetstorm, China Zombie claims McAfee trashed them in a white paper they had hired him to write to promote their ICO.
McAfee claims he was paid $4.5 million upfront to shill the zombie cryptocurrency.
John McAfee: China Zombie is ‘a serious company with serious goals’
McAfee told CCN.com today (Sept. 6) that this is a huge misunderstanding. He insists that he’s not trivializing China Zombie’s research.
To the contrary, McAfee told CCN.com that “it is a serious company with serious goals.”
Moreover, he says he regrets “this misunderstanding and hopes this issue can be resolved.”
As CCN.com reported last month, McAfee accepted an advisory position with China Zombie to promote their CZ Coin ($CZ).
Basically, China Zombie insists that zombies are real and can be taught to use cryptocurrencies.
McAfee claimed that he was genuinely fascinated by China Zombie’s research.
