Crime, News | January 23, 2019 By:

Eccentric software mogul and crypto advocate John McAfee has fled the USA, according to a video he posted on Twitter.

McAfee claimed that he’s heading into exile because of charges related to using cryptocurrencies against the US government. He promised more video to come soon.

McAfee, who famously made a vulgar prediction on cryptocurrency prices, was announced last year as the new CEO of Luxcore (LUX), a blockchain solutions and services ecosystem.

The blockchain company, which focuses on designing and building enterprise ready security and privacy products, says the decision to make the outspoken McAfee the company’s CEO was among its reorganization strategies that were designed to bring about business growth for its cryptocurrency, Lux Coin.

LUX was trading today at $0.547893 USD, up more than four percent.
