John McAfee released details of his crypto-backed fiat currency on Twitter earlier today. It is called the “McAfee Redemption Unit” and is set for a tentative release date of 24th June.
The currency is said to be printed on currency paper. It also has holographs on both sides and is serialized with two features associated with fiat. It is linked to the blockchain and is redeemable. It is also said to have collectible features, as specified by McAfee himself.
The tweet in question said:
“No hoax. The “McAfee Redemption Unit” is real and coming in 26 days. The graphic is low res – don’t want to give much away yet. Printed on currency paper, holographs on both sides, serialized, linked to the blockchain, redeemable, convertible, collectible”
It was followed by a graphic of the various denominations of the currency. The “1 MRU” note features an image of John McAfee surrounded by 5 women. The “5 MRU” note features a portrait image of McAfee. The “10 MRU” features Bitmain co-founder, Jihan Wu.
The “20 MRU” features American entrepreneur Brock Pierce, who is involved with the Bitcoin Foundation. The “50 MRU” surprisingly features Roger Ver, who is infamous for propagating Bitcoin Cash. The “100 MRU” features McAfee wearing a tie without a shirt, and the “500 MRU” features McAfee with his wife.
All the notes feature the statement:
“Please appear at the redemption office between the hours of 1 PM and 3 PM at Rinconada de Los Caracoles 109 Departmento 01 Conchas Chinas Puerto Vallarta, Mexico 48390. Present your certificate. The redemption center will verify its authenticity and provide you with a date, time and location in the US where Mr. McAfee will meet with you for the alloted time.”
This would imply that the currency would be exchanged for some sort of value, although nothing else is clear at this point. It is left to see if any details will be revealed.
