The eccentric cryptocurrency enthusiast John McAfee decided to file a lawsuit against the crypto exchange HitBTC, which he had previously severely criticized for high commissions for ICO tokens withdrawal.

John McAfee announced that he plans to file a lawsuit against HitBTC.


Earlier, McAfee accused HitBTC of almost killing millions of poor people around the planet, and called on users to boycott the cryptocurrency exchange. The reason for his dissatisfaction is high fees for many ICO tokens withdrawal.

"I fired the first shot in the war that must be fought. Our exchanges are connected to our banks and our governments. To take down the entire system, we must first take down our exchanges. Distributed exchanges are coming. I have singled out @hitbtc becase they are the worst," McAfee wrote in his twitter.

McAfee drew attention to the fact that HitBTC ignored 12 of his appeals. One user suggested that the public attack on HitBTC by McAfee is related to the fact that crypto-exchange charges a commission for the withdrawal of tokens of the medical cryptoproject Docademic, promoted by McAfee in Twitter. McAfee himself denied that the fact that his investments in Docademic caused his attack on HitBTC.

HitBTC published in its Twitter a message in response to McAfee's critics. HitBTC thanked the eccentric IT entrepreneur for his attention to the work of the crypto-exchange and explained that the reason for high fees for Dodacademic tokens withdrawal are caused by their high volatility. HitBTC invited McAfee to help the exchange to create an algorithm that would automatically track too high fees for withdrawals.

HitBTC is the 10th world's crypto-exchange by dayle trading volume. Despite its popularity, little is known about the cryptocurrency exchange operator. It is often referred to as "European", although Hit Solution Ltd, which owns the site, is registered in Hong Kong.
