"Some people have hundreds of thousands of dollars on their smartphone wallet. And I tell them – if you give me your phone number, in five minutes I will transfer all of your Bitcoins into my account," he said. And I can prove it, its trivial."
Uhh.. not sure about that John. That's just being really delusional.
John McAffee is a really smart man with years of wisdom, he is definitely on your side in regards to technology. It is quite easy to compromise an iPhone, and if you hold hundreds of thousands of BTC on it, your funds are at risk. Best to keep little funding on your phone.
Here, again, his wisdom is quite valuable, this is inevitable:
"I don't know if it will be Bitcoin or multiples [of different currencies] but there will be a cryptocurrency standard for the world whether governments like it or not. And the fact is, it will be difficult to find out where money is flowing from and to, therefore making it difficult to collect taxes- they will have to get used to it.
"There will have to be some other mode of collecting taxes, whether its a tariff on the use of national parks or the use of the roads – I don't have a clue – that's the government's problem and not mine. But it's coming and it will change the culture of this world."
