On the evening of June 23, it became known that John McAfee, the founder of the antivirus company McAfee, was found dead in his cell in a Spanish prison. His lawyer told Reuters that the businessman's cause of death was suicide. Earlier in the day, the Spanish Supreme Court authorized McAfee's extradition to the United States. The businessman was detained in Spain in October 2020 at the request of the American authorities.
The mainstream crypto media have already reported on the event with obituaries with varying degrees of cynicism. And only a few dared to assume that McAfee suffered the fate of the American financier Jeffrey Epstein. He was simply killed.
This version of what happened is supported by the fact that the accusations McAfee called politically motivated. After being detained in Spain last year, McAfee wrote on Twitter that if he was found hanged, like Epstein, it would not be his fault.
He complained about threats from the special services and, on October 20, 2020, suggested that he could be dealt with, as was done with the main witness of terrible crimes against the person.
McAfee even got a “$WHACKD” tattoo on his arm so that no one would have any doubts about his premeditated murder. People don't get killed in prisons for tax evasion. The reason was that McAfee had a ball of 31 TB of information about corruption, which he promised to make public in the event of his assassination.
Further, he created an ERC20 token, which he called "Epstein didn't kill himself" and after hanging it on the Ethereum blockchain, tied this token to a wallet which he called "Whaked", the password from which he encrypted and posted on his social network on a piece of paper with the letter "Q".
His friend has already decrypted the password and terabytes of compromising evidence went to the Ethereum blockchain, and then to piratebay. The only way to remove compromising evidence from the blockchain is to destroy the entire ether infrastructure, which is essentially impossible.
McAfee, in his eventful life, has done many things, both good and not so. But let's pay tribute to the deceased. About the dead, either good or nothing.
The last mistake in his life was the choice of Spain as a country to escape from the ubiquitous intelligence services. Unfortunately, this beautiful country was turned into a funny monarchy and a puppet democracy, which gives citizens to the sovereign at the first command.
It was necessary to fly to Russia, like Edward Snowden, where he managed to save his life.
But right now everyone is waiting for the publication of 31 terabytes of information stolen by McAfee.
