Unsurprisingly, Bitcoin perma-bull John McAfee is facing a barrage of messages from his worried fans about BTC. It has not been a good few days for the Bitcoin price, as the largest cryptocurrency by market cap lost over $1000 of its value in the last 24 hours. Though now above $10,000, BTC/USD is well off its highs of nearly $13,000 YTD.
For many crypto enthusiasts, seeing McAfee tweeting about digital currency will have brought a warm glow to their hearts. As the tax exile has fled from the Caribbean to Europe before finding himself in a faraday cage, the tweets have been more concerned with oppression in the United States than Bitcoin advocacy. Recent volatility has sparked John into feeling the need to reassure his crypto flock that everything's going to be alright.
