Who say BTC is crashing? It's gonna be over $500,000 in an hour from now.
What! You don't trust me?
Well, it could be even for a moment but it will touch $500,000 somehow. Watch on!
What if it doesn't?
John McAfee will eat his own dick on a national TV 😝
Well, I'm just reminding you that it was this time exactly 3 years back when John McAfee entered this bet. It was the time when Bitcoin had touched a low of $1800 :
It takes a lotta courage to say it will reach $500K when it's touching a low of $1800. I tend to admire McAfee for his courageously motivating words to the crypto community back then:
Despite such a powerful wording of his confidence, throughout the time after this bet, people used to skeptically ask him about his certaity of prediction.
And John McAfee will confirm every time with more confidence:
When I predicted Bitcoin at $500,000 by the end of 2020, it used a model that predicted $5,000 at the end of 2017. BTC has accelerated much faster than my model assumptions. I now predict Bircoin at $1 million by the end of 2020. I will still eat my dick if wrong. pic.twitter.com/WVx3E71nyD— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) November 29, 2017
So was his confidence that he doubled the predicted price to reach to $1M a few months later i.e. end of 2020.
According to these statements, Bitcoin will surpass $500K today and then go beyond $1M after the end of 2020.
Someone even created a website dedicated to this event famously termed as "Dickening event". However, they never expected bitcoin prices to reach that level but they were expecting him to eat his dick on national television ...LOL! Hence the name of the Dickening Countdown website www.dickening.com.
In July, last year too, McAfee confirmed that he is still positive about his $1M prediction at the end of 2020. In October, 2019 he even said, "If it's less than 2 million dollars by the end of 2020, then mathematics itself is a flawed discipline."
Since this was originally proposed to be the Dickening day, I just recollected all these to amuse you a bit. No, BTC isn't going to touch $500K in an hour ..that would be silly to believe.
John McAfee had already reneged to his bet at the beginning of this year, calling it a ruse:
Eat my dick in 12 months?— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) January 5, 2020
A ruse to onboard new users. It worked.
Bitcoin was first. It's an ancient technology. All know it.
Newer blockchains have privacy, smart contracts, distributed apps and more.
Bitcoin is our future?
Was the Model T the future of the automobile?
He had assumed that his followers are not stupid and tweeted, “Wake the fuck up. What idiot thinks anyone is going to eat their own dick ever? Especially in TV!! Are you that idiot? God .. I hope none of my followers are that stupid.”
Yes, his followers were not stupid and knew he won't eat his dick. In fact, his followers were intelligent enough to know that Bitcoin won't reach a price of $2M or $1M or even $500K in 2020. So what was the ruse about!
