John Mc Afree revealed that he apparently charges $105,000 for every promotional tweet on cryptocurrency. The tweets are usually on the new coins or ICO. He also tweeted that how his team helps him with the promotional activities. McAfee Crypto Team is apparently the name of the company that puts together the tweets.
“It’s self-aggrandizing and ego-stroking for us,” he wrote.
“However, if you’re planning an ICO, trying to boost a coin, or want to shine a light on your latest project. You should overlook our swollen egos and see.” The link details how each tweet costs $ 105,000. But divided between his 810,000 followers, the cost per ‘investor’ is only $0.13.
The site boldly declares, “John McAfee’s tweets are by far the most influential in the field of cryptocurrency.”
Mc Afree claims from his side that 259,000 of McAfee’s Twitter followers “have more than 50% of their total assets in cryptocurrencies,” Mc Afree was also taking parts in pump and dump of course to boost the value of coins.
Tom Créance, responded to a request to comment that its team. “simply does not have the financial capabilities to pay Mr. McAfee to promote the coin. The core team did not pay him, and we were just as surprised as everyone else when we saw his tweet.”
