For long, John McAfee has been known for his bullish sentiments in the crypto industry. And in yet another plan of his, he has taken the crypto industry by storm.
In his latest tweet, McAfee mentioned that a crypto debit card is around the corner and its teaser is to be soon released.
In addition to this, the tweet also included mockups of the front and back pictures of McAfee’s crypto debit card.
No details as to how users could register for the debit cards, but McAfee, through another one of his tweet mentioned that only the first 12,000 of those debit cards will have his image on it. McAfee added:
“After that, all cards shipped will be plain. My haters will have to wait.”
McAfee, in his first tweet regarding the debit card, mistakenly designated it as a credit card. But on the same day, he corrected his mistake through another tweet and also mentioned that debit card users would be able to load bitcoin in it and use it anywhere they wanted. He added, “we convert to local currencies.”
Despite slight misinformation at first regarding the card, the crypto community expressed its interest in the launch of the debit card.
