John McAfee is undoubtedly the most candid man you’d ever follow on Twitter. I bet those who know him personally can attest to this quality of the Crypto Crusader who has nothing but best intentions for all Crypto enthusiasts and the crypto-verse in general. His candidness can be seen when he openly admitted that the famous software AntiVirus named after him is a piece of crap. This admission was a precursor to his announcement that he now has an unhackable hardware wallet available for his ever growing fans.
In the tweet, McAfee stated that:
“For those of you unaware, know that McAfee Anti Virus is the biggest piece of crap on the planet; however, can you not cut me some slack, for having nothing whatsover to do with that company in more than fifteen years. My unhackable wallet, is unhackable.”
This wallet he is promoting is known as Bitfi. The wallet is said to be the most sophisticated instrument in the world and according to the product’s website. The first batch of the wallets has since sold out with the next batch being available in the next one day or so. This means that you could own one of these wallets as soon as June 4th.
McAfee would reiterate the ‘sold out’ statement via the following tweet.
The first batch of my unhackable wallet sold out in twenty two minutes. The second batch sold one hundred fifty units until the site crashed for keeps! In three days, my third batch of Bitfi will be released. Keep your crypto hundred percent safe with https://t.co/ATFaxwUzQC.

Continual HitBTC battle
John McAfee is also knee deep in a new crusade against popular cryptocurrency exchange of HitBTC. He claims that the exchange has continually oppressed the ‘little guys’ in trading by making its services unavailable through numerous buy-in fees as well as sometimes locking up the coins and tokens of users without a clear explanation. His most current tweet against HitBTC goes after the exchange’s CEO.
36 hours and not a single response from HitBTC. Please God …. does this not tell you something about the character of their CEO? Please see what is happening here.

McAfee seems to have a valid point for many of his Twitter followers are continually airing their horrible experiences with the exchange. Some have completely boycotted the exchange with some planning to do so as soon as their crypto assets are unlocked on the platform. This follows a similar battle McAfee had with the American SEC. McAfee has also not held back his opinion that Bitcoin has been intentionally manipulated to current low levels. He is truly a crypto crusader!

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
