Known programmer, entrepreneur and bitcoin enthusiast John McAfee (John McAfee) said that it will no longer publicly support the ICO projects in light of “threats to the SEC.” McAfee claims that the representatives of the regulator demanded that he refuse to cooperate with any ICO projects, including advertising and PR support on Twitter. He also sees the risks of arrests for the organizers of the ICO, which in itself, in his opinion, unfair.

Due to SEC threats, I am no longer working with ICOs nor am I recommending them, and those doing ICOs can all look forward to arrest. It is unjust but it is reality. I am writing an article on an equivalent alternative to ICOs which the SEC cannot touch. Please have Patience.

We will remind, earlier positive tweet McAfee was estimated at $105 thousand. While the SEC back in November of last year, said the ICO promotion in social networks “stars” finds it illegal if not disclosed the nature, source and also the size of direct or indirect compensation for support.

At the end of December 2017 McAfee announced that it is officially a verified profile Twitter account was hacked, and he has no relationship to the price forecasts on a little-known cryptocurrency, which were published in microcooling on his behalf. And at the end of may McAfee predicted the bitcoin price in June at $15 bucks apiece, despite the fact that in July she again lowered.
