Bitcoin SV cheerleader Calvin Ayre has defended a controversial series of tweets involving a pool party, Cuban women and twerking.  In reply to an article by Coin Rivet, he insisted that everyone at the pool party was an an adult and hit out at “anti scaling trolls trying to censor an event (his forthcoming CoinGeek conference) that will prove all of them wrong”. this is the anti scaling trolls trying to censor an event that will prove all of them wrong. The fact that everyone can attend one of my famous parties at the end is only a bonus 🙂 See you all there!https://t.co/CrLsjyiPr6 https://t.co/vvfPKAA4mR — Calvin Ayre (@CalvinAyre) March 16, 2019 ya thats it…boycott a technology conference over pictures

Bitcoin SV cheerleader Calvin Ayre has defended a controversial series of tweets involving a pool party, Cuban women and twerking. 

In reply to an article by Coin Rivet, he insisted that everyone at the pool party was an an adult and hit out at “anti scaling trolls trying to censor an event (his forthcoming CoinGeek conference) that will prove all of them wrong”.



In our article, we noted that controversial crypto advocate John McAfee had offered Ayre unsolicited advice. “This is a dark alley you’re wandering down,” he tweeted. “Unfortunately, by your association to the crypto world, you are dragging us down that alley. You are a bright man. Pause for a moment and look at your reality.”

There were cries of ‘hypocrite’ in some quarters. McAfee did, after all, once date a 17 year old woman. He’s an unlikely moral authority, it must be admitted. Take a look at his Twitter feed and you will learn about guns, drugs, booze and the correct way to make love to a whale. Oh, and crypto, of course.

But to quote the man himself: “My post advising Calvin about posting vids of pre-teen girls: “Didn’t you yourself live with a 17 year old?” People asked. Yes I did. Where do you think I got the experience to be able to advise someone on this issue? I have made every mistake that can be made in life. I learned.”

Alas, Ayre took none of this onboard, opting instead to make light of the twerking photos and to dredge up unproven accusations against McAfee.


To which the latter replied: “I’m giving you 12 hours to correct this lie publicly Calvin. If you do not I promise you that at the end of my libel suit everything you own will be mine”.

What else? Oh yes, McAfee’s wife, Janice, has also had her say.
