From threatening to eat his manhood if Bitcoin doesn't hit $1 million to trying to become the 'Crypto' President, one has to ask what John McAfee's real agenda is

Over time visionary and innovator Elon Musk eventually fell off the deep end and has now reached the point where his shareholders are seriously looking to oust him as CEO of his own company.  And sadly now we must wonder if anti-virus magnate John McAfee has reached that same point of madness.

This is because in the past few weeks the 'Bitcoin evangelist with a Twitter account' has gone as far as doubling down on his promise to eat his manhood on live television if Bitcoin doesn't hit $1 million per coin by a certain date, announced a new form of blockchain based currency forged in his image, and is dropping hints that he will run for the Presidency in 2020 to try to become the 'Crypto President'.

Antivirus software pioneer. One-time fugitiveCryptocurrency evangelist. And now US presidential candidate for 2020. John McAfee sure knows how to make a splash. 
McAfee announced his candidacy on Sunday and tied it to his current role in promoting cryptocurrencies. "I believe this will best serve the crypto community by providing the ultimate campaign platform for us," he said. 
McAfee seems to have realistic expectations for his current presidential run, tweeting, "Don't think that I have a chance of winning. I do not. But what truly changes America is not the president, but the process of creating one." 
McAfee's obsession with cryptocurrency may soon take another unusual turn. In late May, he announced a physical cryptocurrency called the "McAfee Redemption Unit" that will be printed on paper. He describes it as "linked to the blockchain, redeemable, convertible, collectible."  - Cnet
Since nearly everything McAfee is working towards is the establishment of a cryptocurrency made in his image, the real question we should be asking is not whether he wants to become President, but rather does he instead want to become the nation's next central banker.
