John McAfee is one of the most important figures that supports Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. On May the 4th, Mr. McAfee wrote a Tweet in which he said that he will make Jamie Dimon an offer that he could not refuse. But what is it all about?
The Tweet reads as follows:
I tell JP Morgan the truth. And make Jamie Dimon an offer that no man with an IQ above 12 could refuse. From a video that will be shown at the World Blockchain Conference in Atlantic City on July 12 of this year. I will be keynoting. https://t.co/ObPAmVOhG4 pic.twitter.com/JWqR0hok8v

John McAfee Makes Jamie Dimon a Proposal
In the video uploaded by Mr. McAfee he says that Jamie Dimon and banks should embrace the technology or their business will be over. Moreover, he explains that Blockchain technology is the future itself and that it will help, not only businesses, but also the life of individuals all around the world.
At the end of the video, the Blockchain World Conference (bwc) is promoted, showing the dates of the event going to take place at Harrah’s, Atlantic City between July 11th – 13th. Mr. McAfee will be keynoting at the conference.
It is important to remember that Jamie Dimon called Bitcoin ‘a fraud’ and that it was going to ‘blow up.’ Nothing of this happened until now, unfortunately for JP Morgan and Mr. Dimon. The truth is that banks are starting to invest in blockchain. Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is revolutionizing the financial industry and is damaging banks’ businesses, including JP Morgan and other important financial institutions.
This is not the first time that McAfee comments about Jamie Dimon, in the past he said while talking with CNBC:
“You called bitcoin a fraud. I’m a bitcoin miner. We create bitcoins. It costs over $1,000 per coin to create a bitcoin. What does it cost to create a U.S. dollar? Which one is the fraud? Because it costs whatever the paper costs, but it costs me and other miners over $1,000 per coin. It’s called proof of work.”
What will Jamie Dimon answer? Will he respond to McAfee’s comments?
One thing is for sure, Mr. McAfee is going to stay trending in the cryptouniverse.
Jimmy asked about my life on the run after Belize. "Too much data to even begin to process" I replied. Then I remembered the intrepid reporter from the Financial Times that promised to go with and in panic dropped out. He wrote the best story though.https://t.co/opjzBJGBfe
