John McAfee Dares Bitcoin SV Creator Craig Wright to Explain ‘Conman’ Insult in Tea Throwdown

John McAfee Dares Bitcoin SV Creator Craig Wright to Explain ‘Conman’ Insult in Tea Throwdown 1

By The war of words between 2020 U.S. presidential candidate John McAfee and self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Craig Wright is not going to let up anytime soon.

After Wright branded the cryptocurrency influencer a ‘conman’, McAfee has hit back challenging the self-declared Satoshi Nakamoto to repeat the same to his face.

The insult was hurled by Wright during an interview with Finder. As CCN reported, this was during a bile-ridden attack on Binance.

Then, Wright alleged that the cryptocurrency exchange engaged in price manipulation with McAfee as an accomplice:

So they (Binance) do basically the pre-announcement stuff, some of which Mr. Conman John McAfee there helps with… he will scam something up pump up the price, get people to put their savings and investments into, and they will short the crap out it.

Using a screengrab of the CCN report, McAfee has now invited Wright to a cup of tea. During the meeting McAfee expects the self-declared Satoshi Nakamoto to ‘expound’ on the conman claim.

Is John McAfee in Antigua?

In the tweet, McAfee revealed he was staying ‘less than a quarter of a mile’ from Bitcoin SV figurehead Calvin Ayre. Around that time Ayre, who is also Wright’s business partner, stated that he was heading to Antigua from the U.K.

Upon fleeing the United States in January this year after the Internal Revenue Service started pursuing him supposedly over tax evasion, McAfee has mostly been holed up in the Caribbean. Late last week, the cryptocurrency maverick revealed that he would be traveling to various Central American and Caribbean countries.

Most of McAfee’s recent Twitter activity has featured Cuba, which is about 1,000 miles from Antigua. McAfee and his team landed in Cuba after their boat, Freedom Boat AKA The Great Mystery, developed engine trouble.

what started the john McAfee-Craig wright beef?

Wright insulted McAfee after the latter rejected the former’s claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto. Mid this month McAfee stated with certainty that the mysterious bitcoin creator is ‘100 percent NOT Craig Wright’.

Besides rubbishing his claim to be Satoshi, McAfee has also on several occasions attacked Craig Wright’s baby BSV. While Wright was suing critics, McAfee questioned the altcoin’s integrity saying ‘if there ever was a scam it is BSV!’.

The cryptocurrency maverick has also stated that Bitcoin SV has harmed the crypto sector. Additionally, John McAfee has also urged a boycott of OKex. This was after the cryptocurrency exchange refused to delist BSV, differentiating itself from Binance, Shapeshift and Kraken.

how is the invitation to tea likely to be received?

While it is unlikely that Wright would accept McAfee’s tea invitation, it would be a highly anticipated event if it were to happen. And even though Ayre being on home ground (he is a Canadian-Antiguan citizen) he is also unlikely to encourage it.

In the past, the two men have made no secret of what they feel about each other, with McAfee being particularly vicious. The cryptocurrency maverick is suing Ayre for $800 million over libel accusations. John McAfee has also made little effort at hiding his glee at Ayre’s recent bad press.
