John McAfee bound for Malta Blockchain Summit
The Malta Blockchain Summit continues to raise the bar with the legendary John McAfee confirmed as a top speaker for the November show.
John McAfee, the famous British-American programmer and businessman will lend prestige to the proceedings when he inaugurates the cryptocurrencies conference with a keynote speech. McAfee is a world renown computer scientist, activist, business leader and cryptocurrency evangelist.
McAfee’s career spans nearly the entire history of computing, with McAfee working for industry giants like Xerox, NASA, Univac and Lockheed Martin. In 1987 he founded McAfee Antivirus, and under his leadership the company executed a meteoric rise to the top of the computer security industry.
A lifelong advocate of personal freedom, McAfee has been a vocal critic of privacy invasion and encryption backdoors. In 2016 McAfee ran for President of the United States on a platform of Freedom, Privacy and Technology.
McAfee has also been ranked as one of the top 5 cryptocurrency personalities by the Bithemoth Exchange along with VitalikButerin, Roger Ver, Changpeng Zhao, and Satoshi Nakamoto.
“His tweets are not only influential but entertaining as well. He’s known to be different and has already started a movement called ‘Declaration of the Freedom of Currency Independence’ to destroy fiat money around the world,” Bithemoth wrote.
“We are extremely excited to have with us the legendary John McAfee on the Blockchain Island this November. As one of the most prominent characters in the crypto space, we are certain that McAfee will provide a monumental contribution to the gravity of the show and the overall excitement around the Summit,” says Eman Pulis, Founder and CEO of the Malta Blockchain Summit.
