John Mcafee Brands Banker-FUDed US Congressman Crypto Dracula

U.S. Congressman Brad Sherman’s call to ban cryptocurrencies has been labeled as ‘FUD’ by anti-virus software guru and crypto influencer John McAfee. The cryptocurrency maverick who is also vying for the U.S. presidency equated the congressman to a vampire. In a tweet, McAfee posted an image of the Democratic House Rep for California’s 30th congressional district posing as Count Dracula with the vampire fangs out, perhaps a metaphor for his attempt to suck the life out of crypto.

McAfee Says He Spoke with Satoshi, Claims the Bitcoin Creator Is Furious

By CCN: Don’t say we didn’t see it coming. John McAfee is not unveiling the true identity of bitcoin creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, at least not today.

The US extradition request to the Bahamas is imminent. I met with Mario Gray, my extradition lawyer, and it is now clear (read his letter below) that…
