Ethereum is holding at $170, although the crypto expert and trader Max Keiser believes that $90 would be the next target for it.

McAfee denies the ‘red alert’

The former antivirus magnate John McAfee has again shown himself as a prominent Bitcoin believer. Hyping around lunches does not seem to be trendy now, so no new promises about manhood chewing were made.

However, McAfee started calming the community down, saying:

In one of his previous tweets, he stated that short-term fluctuations of the Bitcoin price do not count.

McAfee still has not lost his interest in Bitcoin, despite his recent troubles with the CIA and the IRS and the fact that his location got a public exposure the other day, making him move to another country to a new safe location.

Besides, Mr. McAfee is busy writing a white paper for Zombie Coin that will help you buy some cognac and a cigar should you be hit by a zombie apocalypse.

Max Keiser on Ethereum price

In a recent tweet, the crypto expert Max Keiser, who has recently made a forecast about Bitcoin hitting $25,000 in the near term, dropped a negative prediction regarding ETH price.

The expert stated that the next price for Vitalik Buterin’s coin would be $90 – almost twice lower than the current $170.

Recently, Vitalik Buterin admitted that the Ethereum blockchain is ‘almost full’ and that for some users transactions on Ethereum may get too expensive. 

Currently, the Ethereum team is considering the implementation of the Ethereum 2.0 version of the network.

Some in the community have found Keiser’s forecast on Ethereum doubtful.
