Jon NOT GIVING AWAY ETH Bannister chose this unusual nickname “Not giving away ETH” because scammers were creating fake social media accounts in his name purporting to “give away” Ethereum. So he took the moniker to separate the “wheat from the chaff”. I love that expression and have no idea what it means.
My 8 other colleagues were proud of ourselves because we found a restaurant (Santorini’s) with no other people from the giant confab. My Dad used to call this kind of self-adulation “Fun for the feeble minded” but we’re having a good time. If you ever find yourself in Malta, check out Santorini’s and ask for Simone.
Back to the photo: John McAfee is here. He’s only too happy to get a photo with my pal “No ETH Bannister”.
Mr. McAfee is quite the Hamlet. He doesn’t want to be president but feels obligated because he’s less loony (in his mind) than the incumbent.
“That’s all I’m going to talk about crypto. See, I don’t want to be president. I couldn’t be…no one’s going to elect me president, please God. However, I’ve got the right to run.”
I remember my wife telling me in 2012 that she was going to back Trump, when he flirted with a run. I politely tried to tell her “That’s the most bat-&)( crazy thing I’ve ever heard you say.”
Look who’s laughing now.
