John McAfee Says His Bitcoin Debit Card Can Be Used ‘Anywhere’

Eccentric cybersecurity pioneer John McAfee, who’s running for the Oval Office in the 2020 elections, has recently teased on social media from somewhere in the Bahamas he’s set to launch a new crypto debit card that can be used “anywhere.”

According to the cybersecurity expert’s tweets, the Visa-branded bitcoin card features his face over an American flag background with broken chains within the stripes in the front, and a QR code usable for BTC deposits in the back.

The card’s lower left corner says “Freedom Lover,” and on the bottom it features McAfee’s “Get your soul back” slogan.

Per McAfee only the first 12,000 cards will have this design, with the others being “plain.”

The eccentric cybersecurity pioneer noted the card can be used “anywhere,” and all users have to do is top it up with bitcoin, presumably something that can be done using the QR code in the back of the card.

McAfee has, however, been under fire recently for seemingly making false claims regarding the identity of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.

After claiming he knew who was behind the pseudonym and claiming to be about to reveal it, McAfee has so far only claimed to have given hints about Nakamoto’s true identity.

Recently, using a letter from his lawyer some claim was forged, McAfee noted it isn’t at his best interest to reveal the identity of Bitcoin’s creator right now, as it could lead him to have defended himself “on many fronts.”

Despite the controversy, McAfee is a well-known bitcoin bull, who predicted the flagship cryptocurrency will hit $1 million by 2020. Despite last year’s bear market that saw BTC drop from a near $20,000 all-time high to a $3,200 low, he is still maintaining his $1 million prediction.

Last year, McAfee launched a campaign against a leading cryptocurrency exchange, HitBTC, that was motivated by the platform’s withdrawal fees on a token he invested in. The campaign led to a lawsuit that when asked about, McAfee claimed not to be allowed to discuss the case.
