Controversial Crypto Advocate John McAfee’s Ghost Distributed Exchange Now Live
Ghost, the distributed exchange set up by John McAfee, is now active. The info was disclosed via a tweet by the founder himself.
The Ghost distributed exchange is closely linked to McAfee’s privacy venture Ghost, a Proof-of-Stake privacy coin aimed for additional anonymous dealings.
McAfee explained on social media platform that Ghost will substitute the McAfeeDEX distributed exchange. The Ghost mainnet went live today.
Ghost project turned out to be controversial after McAfee acknowledged that a portion of codes were “copy-pasted” from the white paper of PIVX.
Ironically, he disclosed his intention to file a case of PIVX, which runs on open-source covenant, for vilification. PIVX also intends to utilize the zk-SNARKs-based privacy covenant developed by privacy coin Zcash (ZEC).
It will be rolled out in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Last month, McAfee tweeted
“PIVX is attempting to claim that their source code is Public Domain, but that the description of how it all works (The White Paper) is not. Claiming a procuct is open source while witholding the documention is fraud. Pure and simple. I will soon demonstrate that in the courts.”
PIVX argued that no one can file a lawsuit against them as it is not a legal entity and no one has ownership stake on its operations.
My final tweet in the $GHOST controversy:
PIVX is attempting to claim that their source code is Public Domain, but that the description of how it all works (The White Paper) is not!
Then what f*cking good is Open Source if the documentation is not included?
What scam is this?
