John Mc Afee’s unhackable cryptocurrency wallet, Bitfi with a $250,000 bug bounty on it is hacked by a teen security researcher within a week of its launch.

The video has been making rounds on Twitter. Saleem Rashid, the self-described adversarial thinker is credited with hijacking it. After hijacking, the teen plays the popular game, DOOM on it.

It is also to be noted that the wallet was supposed to be the world’s first”unhackable” device and was meant to be a secure cryptocurrency storage solution. Apart from a huge reward for breaking into Bitfi wallet, the reward can be claimed on a condition that the cryptocurrency that the wallet is supposed to protect is removed.
