Popular crypto proponent, John McAfee, won’t be eating his penis on national TV if Bitcoin’s price fails to hit $1 million by the end of 2020, as he predicted on November 29, 2017.
The controversial figure shared on Twitter today that his outrageous prediction and bet was only a tactic to attract new users to the cryptocurrency ecosystem, and he believes it worked just as expected.
“Eat my dick in 12 months? A ruse to onboard new users. It worked.”
Many crypto enthusiasts on Twitter find McAfee’s statement quite upsetting as they believe that he is going against his words and only making excuses.
When reminded that his word is his honor, McAfee replied that no one in their right senses would eat their private part, let alone on TV.
Wake the fuck up. What idiot thinks anyone is going to eat their own dick ever? Especially in TV!! Are you that idiot? God .. I hope none of my followers are that stupid.

Bitcoin is Ancient
Aside from declaring that he won’t be eating his own member body part, the billionaire also gave Bitcoin a massive blow, calling it an outdated technology.
McAfee has changed from being a notorious Bitcoin evangelist to an altcoin lover. He noted that the bitcoin network is lacking important features like privacy and support for smart contracts and distributed apps.
Comparing Bitcoin to the Fold Model T, an automobile designed in the 1900s, McAfee believes that Bitcoin is not the future and will be replaced by newer blockchains with enhanced features.
“Bitcoin was first. It’s an ancient technology. All know it. Newer blockchains have privacy, smart contracts, distributed apps and more. Bitcoin is our future? Was the Model T the future of the automobile?” he said.
