What? Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Former US Vice President Will Headline Blockchain Conference• November 6, 2022 6:36 pm • Comments
This is a bizarre combination especially when it comes to talking about crypto…
Boris Johnson has sparked controversy after it was revealed that he will be the main speaker at a cryptocurrency conference.
The ousted British prime minister, who just failed in a second bid for Prime Minister, will speak at Singapore’s International Symposium on Blockchain Advancements in early December.
Johnson will be joined at the event by former US Vice President Dick Cheney, and it’s safe to guess that both will be paid well for their attendance.
According to reports, the ex-PM gets paid more than $150,000 per speaking engagement.
I guess this was only a matter of time but still, ROFL.
