John David McAfee is an English-American computer programmer and businessman. He founded the software company McAfee Associates in 1987 and ran it until 1994, when he resigned from the company.
But his lavish lifestyle depleted him from his fortune. In 2010, he was accused of murder, and had to continue living a modest life on the island of Belize.
In the past several years, he got popular thanks to his tweets regarding crypto currencies. But even those have proven to be part of a scheme. In 2020, the US Securities and Exchange Commission filed a complaint alleging he fraudulently promoted certain ICOs, mostly cryptos.
This documentary takes a look at the rise and fall of John McAfee from his years at developing one of the best anti-virus software, to his downfall and eventual crypto schemes.
