John McAfee Prepares For Legal Battle Against Crypto Exchange HitBTC
Cybersecurity pioneer and crypto fanatic John McAfee have declared his readiness to file legal charges against HITBTC after the exchange allegedly refused to yield to his complaints.
HITBTC has not responded to our requests. We are preparing a legal complaint against HITBTCs service provider and against HITBTC. If you have an issue with HITBTC, then please send details to:

It all started when Mcfee in one of his tweets called for an outright boycott of Hitbtc and he urges his social media followers to take a hard look at crypto exchanges, especially Hitbtc.
The crypto exchanges have become the thing that we have originally fought against. Their power is immense. Hitbtc, for example, has increased suffering for millions of poor people who cannot afford the minimum buy-in since it is greater than their monthly income. Boycott them.

According to McAfee, HitBTC hasn’t done anything to help people “access the only free healthcare in the world,” and is responsible for costing people in the cryptocurrency community money and is liable for the “death of untold people.” He attacked HitBTC for having minimum buy-in fees that are quite expensive for some users.
HitBTC, in turn, replied to McAfee’s accusations on Twitter. The exchange mockingly thanked him for raising the problem and being the voice of the community.

Replying to HitBTC, McAfee threatened to fund a $20 million lawsuit that could bring the company down.
And if this is not redressed to the max – and i mean to the fucking max. I will donate $20 million to a class action lawsuit that, I promise, will bring you down.

McAfee claims to have written 11-12 messages to the cryptocurrency exchange, and only receive one reply in the end. While the time that McAfee plans to fire his charges cannot be ascertained, the crypto enthusiast is gathering more information from those affected by HitBTC services
