Remember the bull run in 2017, how many waves John McAfee caused.
John McAfee's Last Tweet:

In a democracy, power is given not taken.
But it is still power.
Love, compassion, caring have no use for it. but it is fuel for greed, hostility, jealousy ...
All power corrupts.
Take care which powers you allow a democracy to wield.

hello @haccolong,
I think he died at 75 years of age, personally I am not surprised by his death, what surprises me most is that he had been detained for a few years for tax offences, those countries take the payment of taxes very seriously and those who do not pay end up in prison.

Hi @haccolong

I must admit that I wasn't aware of John McAfee death until I've read your publication. Was his tax-related crimes severe?

Cheers, Piotr

In a video on Twitter, he said he was charged with “using Crypto Cuttencies to commit crimes against the US government” in January 2019. Also in this video, McAfee said that he did not pay taxes for 8 years.

On the part of the US Government, they accuse him of not filing tax returns from 2014 to 2018 and not reporting income related to the promotion of crypto projects and consulting work.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) also sued McAfee for failing to disclose that he received $23 million (paid in Bitcoin and Ether) to promote ICOs on Twitter.

Famous for the saying: "By the end of 2020, if bitcoin does not reach 1 million dollars, it will eat its own money on TV".
It is said that there are two things you cannot avoid in America: taxes and death. In the end, McAfee managed to evade one. 😹😹😹

That's a summary of what I know about him 😂😅😅

Thanks for being so responsive and engaging @haccolong

You made me laugh quite badly hahaha

I heard the news yesterday as well and this made me begin to carry out my research on who this man might be and the story is quiet sad.
