John McAfee is back, now advising new cryptocurrency startup

John McAfee joins CryptoSecure, and sends its shares rocketing…

The story of John McAfee is so unusual that he is, to date, the only purveyor of antivirus and internet security software who has had a Showtime/Netflix documentary made about him. Gringo: The Dangerous Life Of John McAfee (pictured) charts his story, from finding fame and fortune, through to his subsequent really quite unusual lifestyle (that led to him being named a ‘person of internet’ by law enforcement official by Belize law enforcement at one stage).

McAfee had been absent from public life since his departure from MGT in January. But he’s has now popped back up at CryptoSecure, in an advisory role.

An announcement yesterday confirmed that McAfee has joined the company as a senior strategic advisor, having first met the team at a Blockchain cruise conference, at which he was the keynote speaker.

CryptoSecure is working on an ICO, with the first round for its SECURE coins set to close in a week. More details on that can be found here.

Shares in CryptoSecure rocketed following the announcement of McAfee’s involvement in the company.
