That`s the second time McAfee has run for president, with his previous campaign in 2016 also being supported by the Libertarian party. “In spite of past refusals, I have decided to again run for POTUS in 2020,” he claimed on Twitter.

If asked again by the Libertarian party, I will run with them. If not, I will create my own party. I believe this will best serve the crypto community by providing the ultimate campaign platform for us.

As the founder of McAfee antivirus software, John McAfee has always been involved  in cybersecurity, a main feature of cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Being also a long time libertarian, McAfee has advocated for the right to privacy and minimal government interposal to citizens’ affairs. McAfee is actively engaged in the cryptocurrency sphere, leveraging his reputation as a cyber security expert to become a cryptocurrency influencer.

With a Twitter following of almost a million people, McAfee regularly promotes altcoins that he finds interesting. He’s not one to hold back on controversial points of view, lately sharing how he strongly believes ‘powerful forces’ are trying to derail the progress of the cryptocurrency revolution, declaring there is a “war” going on between cryptocurrencies and the powers that be. 

However, despite McAfee shares a lot of classy content about the value of decentralized money transforming society, he would most likely keep confined to the libertarian party. 

The cryptoindustry is slowly entering the mainstream, some may argue that it should have a less controversial character representing it. Currently the winning strategy of the cryptosphere is closely connected with education and positive public perception. 

GRAM May be Traded at Liquid at Triple ICO Price

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
