Some of the highlights of the event included a panel discussion with US Presidential candidate Robert F.Kennedy Jnr. (yesterday) where media gained their first glimpse into his response to the Trump verdict. Others included the announcement that Consensus would be expanding its reach and bringing its world class crypto conference to Toronto and Hong Kong in 2025. Another unique addition to this year’s lineup was the Karate Combat Influencer Fight Club, which saw Fyre Festival Billy McFarland take on crypto YouTuber and influencer Justin “Jchains” Custardo only to be crowned winner.
