John McAfee was pronounced dead recently after Spanish authorities claimed he commited suicide.
Many people aren’t buying the narrative that he killed himself considering in 2019 he posted on Twitter that he would never commit suicide and said if he did end up like Jeffery Epstein (dead by alleged suicide) it would be because someone murdered him.
He later posted on December 1, 2019 “I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn’t. I was whackd. Check my right arm”.
McAfee continued the tweet by advertising his new cryptocurrency called $WHACKD which at the time was only available on his now exchange McAfeedex.com which is no longer active.
Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect: "We're coming for you McAfee! We're going to kill yourself". I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn't. I was whackd. Check my right arm.$WHACKD available only on https://t.co/HdSEYi9krq🙂 pic.twitter.com/rJ0Vi2Hpjj

The $WHACKD token is still alive however and saw a surge hours after McAfee was pronounced dead.
WHACKD is quite unique considering it’s a deflationary coin which means it burns 10% of every transactions which will make the supply drop every time someone makes a purchase.
Unfortunately many replicas of WHACKD have popped up and users on social media networks have been promoting scam coins that imitate McAfee’s $WHACKD coin.
Reportedly the $WHACKD coin can be purchase under the contract address: 0xcf8335727b776d190f9d15a54e6b9b9348439eee on Uniswap by using Ethereum.
Some people have had troubles obtaining the coin on Uniswap so they had to change the slippage to 5% to allow them to make the swap.
The Rationalinsurgent had more details about $WHACKD:
This coin was founded by the famous computer programmer and creator of McAfee Antivirus, John McAfee, and was announced on 11 November 2019. It is based on the Ethereum blockchain and can be purchased only from the McAfee Dex platform.
The functionality of the token would burn 1 out of 1000 transactions and also 10% of all transactions.
The subject token was a meme crypto to publicize the event of Jeffrey Epstein’s death, who was an investor and financier and died in August 2019. The subject crypto was introduced under the heading “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” and tried to establish that Epstein did not commit suicide but was assassinated. A few days after the launch of this token, McAfee announced a competition related to “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” and declared that the winners of this contest should be given 10% of the total market supply of the $Whackd Token.
Formerly, this coin could only be bought from McAfee’s own exchange platform known as McAfee Dex, but at present, the domain is non-functional with redirecting links. If you are interested in purchasing this crypto, you may choose to wait until the detailed statistics of this coin are out on the analyzing platforms. After scrutinizing the same, you may go ahead with the purchase of this coin once it is introduced in other leading exchange platforms such as Coinbase or Binance.
Always be careful when purchasing cryptocurrency and pay attention to addresses too.
As of right now it’s unknown whether $WHACKD will have any true value but some people are snatching up the coins to get a piece of history.
