Add More To The List: Tether Co-Founder Reportedly Visited Epstein’s Private Island• May 6, 2023 9:42 am • Comments
In recent weeks more and more people have been added to the list of names that visited Jeffery Epstein’s, private island in the US Virgin Islands.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the recent lawsuit of the US Virgin Islands vs. JP Morgan has revealed the current director of the CIA William Burns visited Jeffery Epstein’s private island too.
Due to cryptocurrency being a very early innovation many cryptocurrency billionaires never got in any kind of relationship with Epstein but not all of them.
Brock Pierce one of the co-founders of Tether reportedly visited Epstein’s island in the US Virgin Islands.
Pierce first gained fame as a child actor when he starred in the hit movie The Mighty Ducks.
Pierce would go on to be a partner with DEN but that all ended after “three former DEN employees filed a lawsuit against Marc Collins-Rector and Brock Pierce alleging that they provided the plaintiffs with drugs and pressured them for sex when Pierce and one of the plaintiffs were still teenagers”, Pierce however denied these claims.
In 2011 Pierce would go on to reportedly speak at Jeffery Epstein’s Mindshift Conference at Little St. James Island, at the time of Pierce’s visit Epstein was already a convicted sex offender.
Epstein reportedly invited Pierce to his conference because he was interested in the world of cryptocurrency but the big question is why would Pierce even accept an invite from a convicted sex offender?

In early 2011, about a decade after the Digital Entertainment Network imploded, Pierce visited the Virgin Islands to attend “Mindshift,” a conference of top scientists hosted by Epstein. A representative for Pierce says he didn’t even know who Epstein was when he flew (commercial) to the event, which the financier had arranged as part of his elaborate effort to launder his lurid reputation. It was not even 18 months after Epstein had completed his slap-on-the-wrist solicitation sentence in Florida and registered as a sex offender.
The rep for Pierce says he saw Epstein after that meeting “a few times over the intervening years at industry events, where many other prominent people were present.” He adds that “the few communications that Mr. Pierce had with Epstein related to cryptocurrency” — an area in which Pierce established himself as a crypto centimillionaire, or maybe a billionaire, in the years following the conference.
Nothing suggests that anything of a sexual nature or anything untoward at all occurred at Mindshift. Pierce is only one of dozens of figures in Epstein’s dizzyingly vast network, and the link between the two may be nothing but a curiosity. But it is a strange tale: how a former child actor who never went to college ended up as an Epstein guest — a seemingly unlikely addition to a group that included a NASA computer engineer, an MIT professor of electrical engineering and a Nobel laureate in theoretical physics. “I don’t know what he had to do with science [or] why he was there,” says one person who attended.

Per The New York Post:
Former child star and presidential hopeful Brock Pierce expressed regret about his ties to dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in an interview published Tuesday.
The “Mighty Ducks” actor, who grew up to become a cryptocurrency billionaire — and is running as an independent candidate in the 2020 election — was contrite about speaking at a 2011 conference in the Virgin Islands supported by Epstein.
“Had I known that the sponsor had been Jeffrey Epstein and if I knew what I know now, I would never have gone,” Pierce, 39, told The Daily Mail.
The Mindshift conference, which featured top scientists, was held just 18 months after the disgraced hedge-funder completed his slap-on-the-wrist 13-month prison sentence in Florida for soliciting prostitution from underage girls.
“I was asked to speak about the future of money, and so I went,” Pierce said, “I speak at conferences normally two or three times a week.”
“I don’t do substantial due diligence nor was there any information about who was sponsoring it. And so I ended up speaking at that event.”
