John McAfee Reveals Why He Stopped Working with Skycoin and Backing the Project
A few days ago, we reported that John McAfee was breaking its commercial relationship with the Skycoin project. He did not provide information about why he decided to do so and he said that he would be talking about it through DM. Nonetheless, after several messages, he has decided to unveil why he took this shocking decision.
John McAfee decided to stop working as an advisor for the Skycoin project in the cryptocurrency space. However, a representative of the Skycoin team explained why he decided to break his cooperation with the team. Apparently, the reason behind it is the fact that McAfee supports “whale fucking.” This practice is an abuse that has become very popular in New Zealand regarding humpback whales.
THe Skycoin community on social media has also explained that they have decided to reject McAfee’s services. Apparently, the comments related to sexual intercourse with whales bothered the Skycoin team. On March 20, Synth, CEO and founder of Skycoin mentioned that the had to sever their relationship with McAfee after these irresponsible tweets related to whaling fucking.
God … .. I love business spats. Ok then .. here's the real story: Synth (founder and CEO of Skycoin) feels strongly that human/whale intimate relations are non consensual for the whale and therefore represents sexual abuse. I disagree stronglyhttps://t.co/um2xN3oJPD

This is not the first time that John McAfee is involved in different crypto-related projects promoting them on Twitter. He has promoted different coins such as Docademic coin (MTC). He has even sued HitBTC for setting limits to MTC trading and also high withdrawal fees.
However, it seems that Skycoin is going to be harmed by the decision taken by McAfee to leave the project from one day to another.
It is also worth mentioning that McAfee could be talking about whales in the cryptocurrency space, which is related to Bitcoin (BTC) players that have large sums of money and that they can manipulate the market with their moves.
Was John McAfee being real about this sexual practice or he was just using a metaphor to talk about large whales in the crypto space?
