John McAfee posted a video on his Twitter page on June 17th explaining the difference between a visionary and a speculator in an endeavor to support Docademic, a platform providing healthcare service platform based on blockchain technology.

In the video, he plays a small trick using cards to show how a speculator works.

He continues to explain that a visionary is the opposite of a speculator and a speculator is someone who runs numbers and looks at trends but doesn’t understand anything about what is really happening in the market and that they rely on other people. On the other hand, he mentions that a visionary is someone who trusts the idea and invests in it. He states:

“A visionary is that person who in 2013, when Bitcoin was 5 cents goes like- I see where this is going, it has to go where its going, there is nothing that can stop it. I don’t care if it goes to half a penny, I don’t care if it goes to a 1000 dollars and back to penny, who cares? I know where it is going in the long term.”

With a McAfee steer, Docademic has seen a massive 129.83%  rise in the last 7 days with the price at $0.367 and a market cap of $103,637 million. McAfee ends the video by saying, “Look around you, visionaries see things like Docademic. Don’t let others tell you what to do, wake up, look at the truth around you. Good night”.

On promoting Docademic McAfee had earlier mentioned:

“On July 23rd something magic is going to happen. A new app will be released which will allow you to reach out – to what? To help. Psychological help. We are talking about shit coins every day. Do you ever look in these piles of shit, for the diamonds, the gems?”

For the above comment John McAfee replied:

“It was everybody’s card. It would be impossible to pick a different one. This is the point I’m making. Docademic, for example – in the end, everybody will pick it.”

“So true!! Great video! I know I’m a visionary and you are speaking for so many others as well. Great stuff!”

Tron, the eleventh largest cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap, recently collaborated with Bitpie, a partnership that would help startups to bridge the gap in vulnerable financial systems. Tron’s token might be lagging in terms of performance in the market but, Tron DApps continued to surge.

The DApp weekly report released by the Tron Foundation reported an increase of 22 DApps in the Tron ecosystem, taking the total to 392. It noted that gambling DApps mainly contributed to this growth as 17 DApps were gambling-based. Decentralized exchanges followed suit, as 3 new DApps made their way into the Tron DApp ecosystem. The main highlight for the entire Tron community was the partnership with Opera, a mainstream browser.

Tron introduced a DApp ‘Lucky Moon,’ an entertainment-based DApp that pushes users to estimate the current time to run away from the imploding rocket with a specific reward rate. As the rocket takes-off, the reward rate keeps increasing and the player will have to escape at the right time. An extension of this game is ‘Tyrant Annihilation,’ where users need to collect seven types of equipment to kill a tyrant. The DApp might have taken inspiration from The Avengers.

The report made note of the fact that the Tron public chain received support from Aocoin wallet, a decentralized secure digital currency wallet. My Token, a software company that specializes in market information has been integrated into Tronscan and TRX market, leading the way to user traffic in DApps ecosystem.

At press time, Tron was valued at $0.0283 with a market cap of $1.89 billion. The 24-hour trading volume of the coin was noted to be $690.34 as it reported 6.36% growth over the past day. The coin grew by 8.80% over the past seven days, but fell by 0.44% in an hour.
