Cybersecurity Legend, John McAfee, Joins Hacken as an Advisor
Today, with the explosive development of the IT industry, powered by the current boom of blockchain technology, the proper advice and guidance from a trusted and time honored source is crucial. Hacken is proud to announce that John McAfee, a legend in the IT and cybersecurity fields, has become an Advisor of the Hacken Ecosystem joining advisors Krowd Mentor and TaaS Fund.
John McAfee is the creator of the world’s premiere antiviral software and a pioneer in the field of cybersecurity. His invaluable insight will guide the performance of the Hacken Ecosystem in several notable ways.
Above all, John McAfee’s notable influence and expertise will assist development of the Hacken Proof and Zero-day remuneration platform. Mr. McAfee’s exceptionally creative approach to business and software development are renowned worldwide. In 1987, he launched his antivirus sofware company, McAfee Associates.
Business Insider reported, “McAfee Associates took off. By the end of the 1980s, the company was making $5 million a year, and some of the biggest companies in the world were using his antivirus platform.”
In 1994, he sold his stake in the company for $100 million. The business entity was acquired by Intel Corporation in August 2010.
In the mid-1990s, John McAfee launched Tribal Voice, a company that created the instant messaging program, PowWow. This was a predecessor of ICQ, WhatsApp, Telegram and other popular messengers. The fact that McAfee foresaw the importance of programs for instant messaging, proves his genius. We are convinced that John McAfee will play a crucial role in the future cybersecurity boom by assisting us in developing our revolutionary bug bounty marketplace.
The inventor of the world’s preeminent antiviral software will support Hacken in its cybersecurity expertise. Business Insider called him a legend of cybersecurity because he has profound experience in programming and cybersecurity. When the world had only just begun understanding computers and IT, McAfee had already actively worked for NASA’s Institute for Space Studies, then Omex and Xerox, which considerably contributed to the global development of software and hardware. In addition, this pioneer in the antivirus and consumer privacy industry founded Future Tense Central in 2013, as a renewed effort to aid consumers in regaining control over their information and privacy.
With this in mind, we expect to see the “McAfee Effect” on the Hacken Ecosystem. We are thrilled this prominent innovator has become a part of our team!
John McAfee will provide us with valuable advice for our business development. Interestingly, Mr. McAfee had an entrepreneurial mindset at a young age. As reported in Business Insider, his first business was selling magazines door to door while earning a degree in college. Consequently, his first business made him a small fortune. An entrepreneur with such profound experience and extraordinary problem-solving skills will help the Hacken Team in choosing the appropriate direction for business development, as well as supporting us in making the optimal strategic decisions. During his lifetime, Mr. McAfee has created several businesses that changed the world, including McAfee Associates and Future Tense Central. His contribution will assist Hacken to raise the business standards of the entire global cybersecurity industry.
