John McAfee the man who built the first Antivirus program explains that antivirus program software is useless in today’s world and talks about cyber security , privacy and Bitcoin’s future. This interview was conducted in 2017 and gives a little insight of what is happening to Bitcoin today. He explains that your phone is spying you to help you make your life choices easier and he makes some good points. Our phone knows us better then we know are self. As he explained If you ever wanted to know someone the best place to start is there phone.
Google once said if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear, but I think privacy is imperative to our societies how many of us tell everybody what we do in our privet lives no one does. Everyone thinks about privacy hundreds of times a day , so a good example is that if a man was cheating on his wife I don’t think he would be telling the world. McAfee goes on explaining that all porn sites infect all our devices with key-logger software exposing are personal lives to the masses. One downside with key-loggers they will also have access to our financial information that is why it is imperative to have a hardware wallet for your Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is just like Pandora’s box crypto currency is not going away and is a force to be recognized. There are a lot of crypto’s that are Ponzi scheme. He is also made some stupid mistakes in the early days sending and receiving bitcoins to the wrong wallets and losing those funds. McAfee stores his Bitcoins offline on a hardware wallet with a Trezor wallet even if your computer is infected with a virus your password is stored on the device and no one can see it except the person that is using the device.
McAfee also thinks that universities will be extinct why learn from a person that has limited information when you have a phone that has the knowledge of the world.
