John McAfee asks hackers to fight India’s Bitcoin (BTC) ban
On June 7th, 2019, Bloomberg Quint published an article which sent the entire Indian cryptocurrency community to shock. The article stated that there can potentially be a “10-year non-bailable jail term” for buying, selling, trading, and even mining Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
John McAfee has now asked the hacker group Anonymous to fight the cryptocurrency ban. In a now-deleted Tweet, John McAfee tweeted,
“10 YEARS IN JAIL FOR USING CRYPTOCURRENCY IN INDIA!!! If there was ever a time for Anonymous to step up to the plate, that time is now.”
The tweet has now been deleted.
India is the worlds largest democracy and Indians are feeling their democratic rights being stripped away by the “proposed” ban. Not only India but leaders from all over the world have taken to Twitter to announce their displeasure regarding the “proposed” Cryptocurrency ban.
This is so f@cking stupid. One of the biggest industries that could receive the Indian economy is tech and specifically blockchain. What a bunch of idiots!https://t.co/LMrVajqZ1i

India ain't messing around. This will, of course, have the opposite of the desired effect on bitcoin awareness and interest in the country https://t.co/S7OehKgNS1
