Mysterious John McAfee contingency plan website leading people to the Whackd Token, WHACKD price skyrocketed by 733%

As AZCoin News reported, antivirus pioneer John McAfee has been found dead in a Spanish prison. Days later, the price of whackd token (WHACKD) suddenly increased significantly. Three days ago, this ERC-20 token spiked 733%, reaching over $0.075. Is this just a coincidence or does this token play a role in McAfee’s death?

Following the death of John McAfee, an ERC20 token called whackd has seen its valuation rise significantly

In the past, McAfee has mentioned to the crypto community the whackd token on various occasions. When McAfee revealed the whackd ERC20, the advertisement featured a picture of Hillary Clinton. Whackd is meant to be deflationary and burn tokens as transactions are spent. “10% of all transactions will be burned (WHACKD!) + 1 out of 1000 transactions will be burned (WHACKD!),” the ad described.

The joke behind the whackd token is tied to the sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged suicide. Following the launch of whackd, McAfee revealed an “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” contest, and he said the competition’s winners would get 10% of the coin’s supply at the time. Then a few weeks later on December 1, 2019, McAfee shared the fact that he got a tattoo of the text “$WHACKD” on his arm.

Furthermore, four days ago, a mysterious website showcasing the WHACKD token appeared on the internet alluding to McAfee’s alleged “contingency plan” with a countdown timer.

John McAfee’s suicide has sparked a lot of interesting theories and stories over the past few days. McAfee was found dead on June 23, 2021, and the Catalan justice ministry in Spain deemed it a suicide. However, as AZCoin News reported, McAfee’s widow Janice and close associates of John insisted to the media that the 75-year-old McAfee did not commit suicide.

When the story of suicide or not is still unclear, then, mysterious things appear. First, reports have also suggested that McAfee is connected to a secret Bitcoin mining farm dubbed the “ghost hotel” in Spain. And then a website called britbonglogpost.com appeared on the internet for a short period of time. The website is currently inaccessible.

The text on the page says: “Contingency plan activated. Something big is coming.” The text is written above the timer, which was counting down roughly 28 days to reveal something.

Under the timer, there’s an Etherscan address to the whackd token contract McAfee announced on November 11, 2019. The token is an ERC20 coin that was launched on the McAfee Dex platform for trading. Etherscan shows there’s currently a max supply of 790,184,970 whackd among 30,587 whackd holders. Under the britbonglogpost.com’s Etherscan URL highlighted in neon green, the website also says:

“All the right people are scared. They should be.”

Whackd didn’t really get much attention back in 2019 and the following year. WHACKD was trading for less than a cent on June 24, 2021, but the next day, McAfee’s coin was up 733% and hit an ATH of $0.075. Since ATH, the value of the coin has dropped by more than 46% and it is currently hovering around $ 0.03.

Unfortunately, in addition to the legitimate WHACKD launched by McAfee, a number of scam tokens originating from Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) have appeared on Uniswap, Pancakeswap and advertised on other platforms. Initially, real whackd tokens were only available through the McAfee Dex platform. However, at the time of writing, the McAfee Dex web portal is inactive and leaves links that redirect to other McAfee web-related domains.

If there is a whackd token transaction, you should be very cautious and double-check the legitimate contract address. Traders need to understand that there are a lot of ERC20 imitations with the same token name “whackd” being used to scam people.
