John McAfee bigs up Flype, onboard as advisor

Controversial crypto advocate John McAfee is joining blockchain startup Flype as an advisor.

He hooked up with the venture at Malta Blockchain Summit last week. In a LinkedIn post, Yousif Touza, Co-founder and CEO, said: “Word about Flype spread through the entire conference, and the interest in our project was overwhelming.”

Flype is pitched as the world’s first blockchain-based, secure platform for international delivery. “John McAfee sees us as the next big thing in the sharing economy; in his words, we are the Uber of postal delivery,” Touza told RTIH.
