John McAfee: Bitcoin Time Traveler Proof That BTC Will Hit $1 Million


By CCN: Self-proclaimed "mad man" John McAfee is back at it again. Sticking firmly to his call for the Bitcoin price to smash past $1 million by the end of 2020, the crypto evangelist enlisted an unlikely ally in his bullish crusade: the "Bitcoin time traveler" who McAfee says has "never been wrong."

John McAfee Will Take Any Help He Can Get in $1 Million Bitcoin Call

A time traveler is hardly a convincing source, but as you can see from his famous post, he certainly has been broadly correct - so far.

Back to reality for a second: It's quite apparent that these predictions are amusingly broad. It isn't like our "Back to the Future" friend predicted Bitcoin at $8,800 in May 2019.

Regardless, John McAfee is sold. He doesn't care where the information comes from so long as it's correct - and vindicates his own predictions.

A few accurate forecasts are nowhere near enough of a sample size to suggest that someone has an edge. The old saying that a broken clock is right twice a day rings true. If ever there was a harbinger of bullish abandon in markets, it's if people start buying based on advice from time travelers.

John McAfee has undoubtedly been back to his old self these last few months. Whether it be Satoshi Nakamoto claims or running from the Feds, he has been generating a tremendous number of headlines during the 2019 Bitcoin bull run.

Time Traveler: Winklevoss Twin's Don't Make It

So if McAfee and his time traveler pal are correct, who is really in trouble? The Winklevoss twins. Trawling through the rambling Reddit post, you can unearth the following gem,

"What happened to the Winklevoss twins? The Winklevoss twins were among the first to die. After seeing the enormous damage done to the fabric of society, terrorist movements emerged that sought to hunt down and murder anyone known to have a large balance of Bitcoin, or believed to be responsible in any way for the development of cryptocurrency."

Yes, this means McAfee is publicly vouching for a post which also harbors the allegation that anti-Bitcoin terrorists may murder Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in 2025. It's apparent these are no ordinary terrorists - they are hypocrites, too.

"Ironically, these terrorist movements use Bitcoin to anonymously fund their operations."

McAfee Looks to Harness Crypto Hubris

The moral of this story is that cryptocurrency will rise, ushering in a worldwide apocalypse.

Given that John McAfee is supposedly a large Bitcoin bagholder, wouldn't he be one of the next people in the firing line for the anti-crypto terrorist hordes?  No, because this is all ridiculous and McAfee is just marketing his $1 million call during an upswing in Bitcoin’s price. This doesn't mean its not good fun, though.

About the only thing this Reddit post is useful for is a screenplay idea for a sequel to Kyle Tekiela's widely-panned "Crypto" movie.

As investment advice, it's as valuable as a Venezuelan Bolivar.
