The creators of the South China Zombie Research Centre thanked crypto baron John McAfee for taking part in their social experiment. Now, their website is up for sale, and now they promise to review any offers that exceed $12 (not too much for after the epic PR stunt).     

Earlier, U.Today reported that the thought leader in the crypto sphere joined the team of the Chinese Zombie Coin Project to write the white paper for them. The project was set up by the South China Zombie Research Centre.

However, when later on the former antivirus mogul McAfee released a draft of the white paper on Twitter, the Zombie Coin team accused him of scorning the project and making fun of it. They threatened to sue McAfee and demanded $100 mln from him for the damage. McAfee promised to explain the situation to the team, saying that they would withdraw their legal complaints.

John McAfee settling the issue

Since then, the crypto baron has not recalled this incident. However, on October 31, when Halloween is celebrated around the world, the South China Zombie Research Centre took to its Twitter page to post a photo of a man who looks like the US presidential candidate John McAfee with blood all over his face and lying on a hospital bed.

The post says that McAfee has been bitten at his will and given an antidote. Perhaps, the community should expect the crypto influencer to turn into a zombie and start shilling Zombie Coin more efficiently after that.

Another tweet of the South China Zombie Research Centre hints that they have settled their problem with McAfee.

Now, it's all clear that McAfee will be safe in case of a potential zombie apocalypse. 

What are your thoughts on the Zombie Coin experiment and McAfee’s participation in it? Feel free to share them in the comment section below!

Seasoned cryptocurrencies trader and analyst Michael van de Poppe posted his long-term prediction for the price of an orange coin.

Price Cycles are Getting Longer

Mr. van de Poppe noticed that the flagship cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), is going through its third price cycle. According to him, every cycle is taking much longer than previous one.

For instance, the first cycle in 2012-2014 lasted for 910 days, while the next cycle was 55% longer that previous cycle. That being said, the ongoing cycle may end in 2025-2026.

Mr. van de Poppe also noticed that weekly moving average lines acted as a strong support for the bottoms of price levels within every cycle. The first bearish rally failed to break below the 100-Week Moving Average (MA), while the second had nothing to do with 200-Week MA. Thus, for this cycle, the line for the 300-week MA would be a tough nut to crack for bears.

Patience is a Virtue

Mr. van de Poppe has already wisely counselled to lower our expectations for the price of Bitcoin (BTC) since we may be very far from the new 'parabolas'. Even before Black Thursday of Crypto occurred, he had warned that the 2023-2024 period looked 'more natural' for a peak in the new orange coin market cycle than 2021.

It appears that his prediction is in line with another detailed prediction by crypto analyst Charles Edwards of Capriole Investments. Mr. Edwards studied the energy consumption of the Bitcoin (BTC) network and derived his 'energy value theory', predicting that Bitcoin (BTC) will reach the $100,000 mark in 5 years. This will occur if the crypto manages avoid the risks of governmental restrictions and quantum computers attack.
