In the crypto industry, John McAfee has been famous for his bold predictions of various coins’ prices back in 2017-2018 and ICO promotion until the SEC put an end to that.

Later on, McAfee started running for the US presidential chair and this year he has been chased by the IRS for avoiding his tax payments over the last eight years.

McAfee has always promoted the idea of freedom from banks and governments. This is how he explains the real reason of the IRS (and the CIA, as he says) being after him.

Recently, McAfee launched his own decentralized exchange (dex), which took him about a year to prepare.

 

McAfee’s dex web address, modified a little, leads to Binance

In a tweet published on October 21, the crypto eccentric John McAfee says that a tiny change in the address of his recently launched dex leads you to Binance.

The difference between the actual address of the dex and the Binance referral link is an extra ‘f’ letter. In the comment thread, somebody assumes that this could be a referral link set up by somebody.

The person then takes this assumption further, suggesting that the link could be set up by…McAfee himself for getting some a win-win situation with Binance.

McAfee generously invites crypto podcasters to invite him

In another recent tweet, McAfee calls on crypto podcasters, saying that if they have a sense of humor and can pass the scrutiny of his wife Janice, then he would join a podcast as a speaker.

This could be part of his pre-election campaign, since in his present status of a person chased by the IRS, McAfee would hardly be invited for an interview on any official TV channels.

 

What are your thoughts on McAfee’s recent activity and the launch of his dex? Let us know in the comments 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.
