John McAfee Gives ‘Hard Date’ For $1 Million Bitcoin

US Presidential Candidate and former ICO-enthusiast, John McAfee, has declared a ‘hard date’ for a bitcoin price of $1 million. This followed a prediction of “$1 million… someday” by Jesse Lund, vice-president of blockchain and digital currencies at IBM. Two Weeks Next Someday Lund made his prediction in an interview, when quizzed about his future outlook for Bitcoin, saying: I see Bitcoin at a million dollars someday. I have actually blogged about this a little bit. His prediction may however, partly be based on a preference for round numbers. He explained that he liked the figure because “then a Satoshi will be equal to one U.S. penny.” He also noted that $20 trillion liquidity of the network this meant, would massively change the global financial services landscape. But ‘someday’ is just a little bit vague, and difficult to get excited about… which is where Mr McAfee steps in. Save The Date While applauding Lund’s ‘awakening’ to the fact that ‘Bitcoin will be $1,000,000’, McAfee wasn’t content with ‘someday.’ So he upped the ante and stated a ‘hard date’ for the forecast, of December 31st 2020. People are waking up to the fact that Bitcoin will be $1,000 000. But when? "Someday". "Maybe 5 years". "WIthin a decade". I'm the only one giving you a hard date: Dec 31st, 2020.https://t.co/rst3BcypFz"will-be-1-million-someday-says-jesse-lund-vp-of-blokchain-at-ibm.html — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) February 22, 2019 This updates (and in effect doubles down on) his previous bet, made in July 2017, that Bitcoin price 00 would move above $500,000 in three years. McAfee famously claimed that if he lost that bet he would eat his own penis on national television. When questioned in the Twitter comments, McAfee confirmed that this was the same bet, and that: I never lose a bet. Wild Wild Life Whatever one’s opinion of McAfee, his life is nothing if not fascinating. Last year he declared his intention to run for the office of US President, with the Libertarian party, for the second time. Then earlier this year, he revealed that he is being pursued by the IRS, for ‘unspecified crimes,’ and living in exile. Price prediction is a notoriously precarious occupation, and putting one’s manhood on the line would be a step-too-far for almost anyone except McAfee. So, will we see him devouring his genitals on national television? I personally hope not, for many reasons, chief amongst them being personal financial gain. After all, the prospect of a $1 million dollar bitcoin in less than two years is certainly something to get excited about. More so than a man chewing his own tickle-tackle, I’d wager. Do you think McAfee will be proven correct? Share your thoughts below!

John McAfee Affirms One Bitcoin Will Equal a Million Dollars Before The End of 2020

A British-American Programmer and the founder of McAfee Association declared with all assurance that one bitcoin will equal a million dollar by the end of December 2020. Speaking in an interview, the programmer said he will eat his private part if his prophecy doesn’t come to pass. People are waking up to the fact that Bitcoin will be $1,000 000. But when? “Someday”. “Maybe 5 years”. “WIthin a decade”. I’m the only one giving you a hard date: Dec 31st, 2020 People are waking up to the fact that Bitcoin will be $1,000 000. But when? “Someday”. “Maybe 5 years”. “WIthin a decade”. I’m the only one giving you a hard date: Dec 31st, 2020.https://t.co/rst3BcypFz“will-be-1-million-someday-says-jesse-lund-vp-of-blokchain-at-ibm.html — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) February 22, 2019 It is really a very serious affirmation for a man to stake his ‘life’ for a system he doesn’t even have control over. Speaking further he clarified that he reached as far as betting with his manhood to prove how sure he is that bitcoin will appreciate in value. Mr. McAfee said he doesn’t want to join the category of people believing that bitcoin price will rise someday, so he is definite about his prophecy. Another enthusiast who believes one bitcoin will equal a million dollar is the vice president of blockchain and digital currency at IBM, Jesse Lund. When replying to a question on his expectation on the future of bitcoin, he told Crypto Finder that he believes one bitcoin will equal a million dollar someday. He said: ‘I see Bitcoin at a million dollar someday, ‘I have actually blogged about this a little bit.’ “I like that number, because if Bitcoin is at $1 million, then a Satoshi will be equal to one U.S. penny, which would mean that there is over $20 trillion of liquidity in this network and this $20 trillion of liquidity would massively change the global financial services landscape.’ The Crypto VP of IBM believes this will happen in the long run but also said he is expecting bitcoin to rise to $5000 for one bitcoin by the end of 2019. His declaration is under probability because he didn’t stake anything to prove how sure he is.

Dogecoin / USD Technical Analysis: Failing To Capitalize

Dogecoin is neutral in the short-term after the recent rally in the pair failed to break above a former key swing-high DOGE / USD is bearish in the medium-term with price still trading below the neckline of a sizeable head and shoulders pattern Large amounts of bullish MACD divergence seen on the daily time frame Dogecoin / USD Short-term price analysis   In the short-term, Dogecoin is neutral due to the pair failing to move above a former key swing-high during its most recent upside rally. The cryptocurrency is starting to turn lower in the near-term, although price is still above the pair’s 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame. Technical indicators on the mentioned time frame are turning lower with further scope to push the DOGE / USD even pair lower.     DOGE / USD H4 Chart                                                                         (Source: TradingView)     Pattern Watch The recent rally has created a bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern on the four-hour time frame, which should be monitored closely over the short-term.   MACD Indicator The MACD indicator is trending lower on the four-hour time frame with a bearish crossover underway.   Relative Strength Index The RSI indicator has turned bearish, with push bears taking control below the neutral line. Dogecoin / USD Medium-term price analysis   Dogecoin remains bearish over the medium-term, with buyers unable to move price above the neckline of a large head and shoulders pattern on the daily time frame. A long-term technical bottom has yet to be confirmed in the cryptocurrency, as price remains relatively close to the pair’s multi-year trading lows, despite the broader market rally. Interestingly, Dogecoin is showing bullish MACD divergence on the daily time frame from November of last year.     DOGE / USD Daily Chart                                                                         (Source: TradingView)     Pattern Watch The bearish head and shoulders pattern is the major theme to watch on the daily time frame.   MACD Indicator The MACD indicator remains neutral and is currently failing to generate a clear trading signal.   Relative Strength Index The Relative Strength Index has recently started to recover after an extended period of downward pressure. The indicator is showing that bullish momentum is growing across the daily time frame. Conclusion   Dogecoin is likely to remain under slight downside pressure over the short-term, while its medium-term outlook is decidedly bearish as buyers continually struggle to stage a rally above the neckline of the head and shoulder pattern. Some caution is advised in the medium-term, especially if the broader cryptocurrency market continues to trade higher, as Dogecoin shows a sizeable amount of bullish MACD price divergence that has yet

Latin America’s Biggest Investment Bank Launches Security Token

Banks once refused to work with blockchain companies in Brazil. Now, BTG Pactual, Latin America’s largest standalone investment bank, is launching a security token of its own. A Wave of Change in Brazil There seems to be a wave of change happening in Brazil. Bitcoinist reported just a few days ago that Santander Bank was ordered by a Court to keep open Bitcoin Max’ checking account. Banks that were once hesitant to work with cryptocurrency exchanges are being forced to eat humble pie. That marked a small victory for the cryptocurrency space in this part of the world. And now, it seems that financial institutions here are realizing the worth of digital assets within their own portfolios. Banco BTG Pactual SA Is Leading the Way Brazil’s Banco BTG Pactual, the largest standalone investment bank in the region, has announced that it will be entering the cryptocurrency space with its own security token, the ReitBZ. With a plan to raise up to $15 million in its token sale, STO, initial offering, or whatever terminology you prefer, the bank will launch a security token backed by distressed real estate assets in Brazil. The ReitBZ token will use blockchain technology. And investors will be able to buy it using the Winklevoss twins’ Gemini Dollar or ETH. The token is indisputably a security token since investors will receive dividends periodically from the recovery of the distressed assets. Hold Up, What Are Distressed Assets? A distressed asset is one that is put on sale at a reduced price because its owner has been forced to sell it. This may be due to excessive debt, bankruptcy, or regulatory constraints. And it’s especially common when it comes to real estate, a market in which during times of financial crises, people often fail to make their mortgage payments. Distressed assets are an excellent opportunity to buy into a devalued asset and make gains as the market recovers. They’re not so awesome for the person forced to sell, of course, but this is capitalism, after all. The BTG distressed real estate assets will be managed by a BTG subsidiary called Enforce. The ReitBZ token will be available worldwide. With the notable exception of the U.S. (surprise, surprise), and Brazil. Wait, so investors around the world will be able to profit from the rising housing crisis in Brazil–but not the Brazilian people themselves? Right. How’s that for messed up? BTG, however, assures that once the regulatory landscape clears up in Brazil, the ReitBZ will be open to its country’s citizens and maybe even the United States as well. The Opportunity for High Yearly Returns According to the bank, investors can expect yearly returns from these assets between 15-20 percent. Moreover, BTG will be providing market-making services for its token to ensure that investors have sufficient liquidity to sell when they want to. CTO Gustavo Roxo told Bloomberg: BTG is deploying its own capital to provide liquidity because it really believes in the crypto business… We came up with this structure because we think investors in the digital world have a higher risk-taking appetite. By using a crypto asset, BTG can maximize returns from its distressed assets and allow investors to enter the market in a cheaper way. The initial sale period of ReitBZ will last for approximately 90 days and proceeds will be reinvested into the portfolio. Banks and Cryptocurrencies Starting to Gain Momentum The announcement comes off the back of the news last week that JPMorgan became the first U.S. bank to launch its own ‘cryptocurrency.’ With CEO Jamie Dimon well-known for ‘Bitcoin bashing’, JPMorgan introducing its own digital coin to accelerate payments was a shock to many in the industry. However, JPMorgan and BTG are not the only horses in this race. It seems that the banks haven’t been falling asleep at the wheel when it comes to cryptocurrency after all. Japanese Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group started working on plans for their own token back in 2016. And now Brazil has stepped up to the plate. BTG’s partner and initiative head of the ReitBZ Andre Portilho said: We knew we needed to dominate this technology, so we started experimenting with it a few years back… We thought Bitcoin and other currencies were turning too volatile, but we saw an opportunity with this token to try something new–but also with our skin in the game. The question now isn’t whether other banks will launch their own digital currencies, but rather which ones? Will more banks follow with their own virtual currency? Share your thoughts below!
