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.
