Cybersecurity pioneer and sometime cryptocurrency shill John McAfee said that he will no longer promote initial coin offerings (ICOs) on his Twitter account.
The eccentric McAfee, who promised that he will “eat my d–k” if the bitcoin price fails to reach $1 million by 2020, wrote on Twitter that he must cease his public support for ICOs due to pressure from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
“Due to SEC threats, I am no longer working with ICOs nor am I recommending them, and those doing ICOs can all look forward to arrest. It is unjust but it is reality,” he wrote. “I am writing an article on an equivalent alternative to ICOs which the SEC cannot touch. Please have Patience.”
