McAfee changes the "Coin of a day"

John McAfee's daily column met criticism from cryptocurrency community
27 December 2017   3095

Last week John McAfee in his Twitter opened the column "Coin of the Day", in which every day recommended a new crypto currency. The community met McAfee's initiative with criticism, because immediately after the placement of the tweet a large number of traders started buying up the "promoted" crypto currency, selling it in a few minutes or hours. Thus, their actions did not differ from the notorious scheme of market manipulation "pump-and-dump".

McAfee reacted to these reports and decided to change the rubric a little.

Critics argue that the recommendations of McAfee attract exclusively speculators and prevent long-term investors from assessing the potential of the crypto currency they promote.

John McAfee is known as the creator of the world's first commercial antivirus. After leaving the company  in 1994 the entrepreneur tried himself in various fields, including the development of mobile applications, alternative medicine and the crypto-currency market.
