John McAfee was once a pioneer of antivirus software (or virus software, depending on who you ask) worth millions, and now he’s just come crazy eccentric millionaire running around having orgies and possibly murdering his neighbours, but he’s still got his finger on the pulse when it comes to the internet.

As everyone knows, Bitcoin is the biggest thing to hit the internet in years and everybody is talking about it as its valuation has soared from about $1000 at the start of the years to $17,500 right now. John McAfee reckons that it’s going to rocket even higher than that to $1million by 2020 though, and he’s called it before so he could be right: he’s previously said that Bitcoin would break $5000 this year.
Here’s his full tweet outlining his thought:
When I predicted Bitcoin at $500,000 by the end of 2020, it used a model that predicted $5,000 at the end of 2017. BTC has accelerated much faster than my model assumptions. I now predict Bircoin at $1 million by the end of 2020. I will still eat my dick if wrong. pic.twitter.com/WVx3E71nyD

Hmmmm. Is he talking about Bircoin or Bitcoin there though? That might be a good get out clause for him eating his own dick if he’s wrong about it, right?
Either way, he stills seems confident that Bitcoin is only going to get bigger and bigger and he’s probably one of the most qualified people to comment on it given his previous occupation. Up to you whether or not you want to roll the dice and believe him or not though.
Jordan Belfort – The Wolf Of Wall Street – on the other hand, thinks that the whole thing is a scam. Who to believe?
