According to his own Twitter post, McAfee was about to attend the Blockchain World Conference on July 13. Unfortunately, the event organizers asked him to appear via live stream instead of attend the conference due to concerns over his death threats and attendees safety.
Further the conference declared that,
“Due to a number of credible death threats against McAfee, The BWC team has been forced to request that @officialmcafee live stream his keynote speech at 11am EST, from a secret secure location. Mr. McAfee’s globally impacting message will not be silenced by the efforts of a few!”.
After an hour of the announcement from the event, McAfee confirmed stating that he will be “streaming from an undisclosed place”.
I have been asked by the Blockchain World Conference organizers to cancel my live appearance due to fears of audience, and my own, safety. I will be live streaming from an undisclosed location at 11:00 AM. https://t.co/hUhoKEptEI
