The visa card shows the image of American card and the face of McAfee’s himself. Furthermore, it is unclear when this card will be available or how users can get it but McAfee says it would be accepted everywhere.
Despite all this, the crypto community responded positively as one such Twitter user said, “Please let this be true”while other one said, “I love it.”
“That would be great. Crypto credit cards are pretty locked down & no one wants to speak up and say an actual reason. BitPay just keeps saying their upgrading their system for 7 weeks now. coinbase card doesn't work in U.S. Just Too many coincidences,” said another crypto enthusiast.
If anyone has any doubt about this, McAfee gives assurance that it is surely coming as he said,
“Going live in a few weeks.” “Ah I see…Paycent has been operational worldwide or, EVERYWHERE as you put it since early 2018. Mastercard and UnionPay options,” said another one in part.
It’s to be seen how soon this card will be launched and if it will drive crypto adoption forward by becoming part of people’s daily lives and used for regular purchases.
Just recently, McAfee, currently in the Bahamas shared that he knows the identity of the real Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. He further stated that he spoke with Satoshi who isn’t happy about his attempts to reveal his identity.
Though he first said he would expose Satoshi’s identity within a week, later he backed off after consulting with his lawyer. He tweeted that doing so could affect his trial and further risk his extradition to the US and didn’t want to risk that, so he won’t be making these revelations yet.
