John McAfee Declares Death of the Bitcoin Bear, Confirms the Hibernating Market Slumber is Over
McAfee seems to be very happy and excited about the end of the current bear market. He said that everyone has “trashed” him two weeks ago when he said that the market turned. This is why he did not mention anything and kept his “mouth shut.” Nonetheless, he now repeats and confirms what he said a few weeks ago “the market has now turned.”
