John McAfee commented on a man who’s mistakenly thought as him in a bar by some people. 

John McAfee just made his comment of the year to date as he apologies to a man who’s approached by unknown people while in a bar.

Apparently, the man named Courtland was mistaken as John McAfee that he had to show his passport to prove that he isn’t the man who invented one of the world’s most renowned antivirus.

Looking at his picture, he does show feature similarities with McAfee, particularly the beard style and hair color, although age-wise he is clearly younger than him.

“A warning to all who would choose a goatee with peppered hair as their preferred grooming,” McAfee tweeted.

The comments are mostly laughing on the tweet, like “I’ve been having a rough couple days, much needed the laugh from this. Thank u sir” or “You’re not fooling anyone John, we know that’s you.”

In a more serious tweet, the controversial man uttered his dislike towards the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the the taxation system in general, and the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) earlier this month, saying “Mycrypto goals drive the IRS mad.”

The man also announced end of last year th at he will be joining the 2020 presidential race, after failing to secure the nomination from the Libertarian Party in 2016.

Cryptopia reveals that funds deposited 24 hours after declaration of breach would not be recovered

Published

on

The New Zealand-based cryptocurrency exchange, Cryptopia released a statement detailing information regarding the deposits that took place after the hack on 14 January. The exchange, which was attacked twice in January, warned its customers about the breach and put their website under maintenance to avoid any further damage.

The statement said that all customers were notified about the breach on 15 January at 12:00 AM NZT and thus, deposits that took place more than 24 hours after the announcement would not be recovered. Cryptopia stated,“This means that if you sent funds after 16/01/2019 12:00AM NZT we will not be recovering those funds for you.”

Cryptopia did not set any specific deadline to recover the funds that were sent before the cutoff. However, any deposit they recover would be “subject to the same haircut” that was already applied on their users. The option to deposit funds remains disabled on the exchange and users have been asked to wait until an official announcement is made.

Once the deposits are re-enabled, users can deposits funds after generating a new deposit address for each of their coins. The users were also warned not to use any existing wallets to send funds and instead, were advised to create a new wallet address.

Cryptopia already made a CoinInfo page available to its users, providing them with the option to check the status of their coins after the hack. The exchange previously said that they would be securing 35% of the coins to new wallets and that they would be enabling the option for users to cancel orders.

However, to get back on track, it will have to secure all the listed coins. According to an email shared by the exchange, it is planning to get back into business by the end of March. The statement said,“We will be emailing you again shortly with more details around the rebates and the projected dates for trading to be active again. Please be aware, we are hoping to achieve this by the end of the month.”

Bitmain’s IPO filing is about to expire

Published

on

Twitter user @DoveyWann recently spotted some significant news related to Bitmain. The Chinese crypto mining firm’s Initial Public Offering (IPO) filing is due to officially expire later today (25/03/2019), officially signalling the failure of its first effort to go public.

Bitmain first filed for the IPO six months ago, still riding high in the wake of the astronomical profits that the company had previously made, as the mining industry leader at the time of 2017’s historic bull run. Since then, a number of major investors have pulled out, claiming that they were misled by the company. Bitmain has been beset by various issues, and some have speculated that it may now be insolvent.

Lost revenue due to plummeting prices in the crypto market was compounded by the company’s leadership unwisely investing a large amount of its profits into Bitcoin Cash (BCH), as well as losing its edge in terms of the quality of its mining rigs. Bitmain’s co-founder, former CEO, and figurehead, Jihan Wu, now appears to have lost a significant amount of his previous influence.

An IPO filing has six months from submission to move on to its next stage, the hearing, and this now appears to have passed. While few suspected that the IPO would ever be successful, this official confirmation is a notable development in the ongoing bear market and saga of Bitmain. The company was hoping to be floated on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, but Bitmain may still have a chance to go public with a further filing on the NASDAQ.
