“Effective immediately, we will be removing the ‘unhackable’ claim from our branding which has caused a significant amount of controversy. While our intention has always been to unite the community and accelerate the adoption of digital assets worldwide, we realise that some of our actions have been counterproductive to that goal.”Counterproductive!? That’s putting it lightly. Bitfi and McAfee have remained antagonistic and very resistant to the community that has constantly challenged their dangerous theories that a wallet could be unhackable. I think this whole thing has been one big publicity stunt to ensure the name of Bitfi gets heard. If so, you might ask has it worked? Who knows, I don’t think so. I actually think that the community is only ever going to see this product as a bit of a joke after all of this.
