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.

Ledger hardware wallet developers stated that an unforeseen problem was found in software version 1.5.5 for the Nano S model. Improvements in the security context have affected the amount of device memory.

When planning for this update we didn’t anticipate the impact it would have on Ledger Nano S capacity. This was not planned obsolescence, simply put, we messed up. We apologize and we’re committed to making it right.

The project team apologized for the incident and promised to fix the problem during the second quarter of 2019.

The project also announced the addition of Nano S support in the Ledger Live mobile app on Android.

Earlier, researchers at Wallet.fail discovered a number of vulnerabilities in the Trezor and Ledger hardware cryptocurrency wallets. As a result, they were able to conduct a series of successful attacks on wallets during the Chaos Communication Congress in Leipzig.
